When pruning evergreens, it is necessary to understand how different species grow. Pruning is done according to their growth habits and desired landscape form. Evergreens have different growth habits. Plants with determinate growth will spread out and grow so much for the year. Examples are spruce, fir, Douglas fir, and the pines. With the exception of the pines, these evergreens will have lateral buds that can be pruned at any time.
