Reviving an overpruned crepe myrtle

Cbarker added on May 19, 2012 | Answered

We overpruned a couple of our crepe myrtles apparently last winter. They have buds and some leaves up and down the limbs but definitely not where they should be this time of year, is there something I can do to help them? I definitely won't prune them like that in the future. Thanks!

It would be worth it to have a landscaper who is experienced with crepe myrtles come and look to make sure that the tree will retain a pleasing shape if additional pruning is done.
