When and how should I prune a sweet bay magnolia
Our sweet bay magnolia is pushing up against home and fence. The tree is more stringy than "full" and I am thinking that pruning the tips of the branches will force growth next spring into the center of the tree. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.
