Q.My Handyman Pruned A Ligustrum In My Yard Today. I Made The Mistake Of Walking Away When He Was Doing It. He Trimmed It To About
three or four feet from the ground. Will this damage the plant? Will it return to full growth next spring?

Ligustrum tolerate severe pruning well, but it should be done soon after flowering. He may have cut off the blooms for next spring if you have a blooming variety.
They grow quickly so it should be fine.
