cutting back plant

Zone Iowa | Huskermax added on September 25, 2015 | Answered

I have a yew that has grown past the window. I want to prune it down past the first part of the plant. Maybe about 3 feet above the ground. Will the plant come back? The plant is probably 25 years old.

If your shrub has not had regular pruning, you will need to start with a lighter prune.
