Pruning Damaged Yaupon Holly

stolly67 added on March 24, 2017 | Answered

A mature yaupon holly was damaged as a result of a tree falling on it and making a hole in the shape of the bush. Can it be radically pruned and eventually recover its shape? There is 75% of the bush remaining and doing well. It just looks lousy where it was flattened by the tree. Thank you.

I would wait it out and prune only if necessary and then only prune when it is dormant.
