when is the best time to trim leylandii trees



They can be trimmed at any time, but the best time is in the spring or about now...

Good advice but if you're going for once a year pruning now is the ideal time. Do not cut back into branches where there are no green leaves. They will not regenerate.

Use a chainsaw, about half inch from the ground. I find that works! Phil J
