How to prune Mountain Laurel?
I have two 20 foot tall Mountain Laurels that came with the house and I need to do some pruning now that they have flowered.
The problem is besides the obvious removing of dead branches or branches that rub against each other I don't really know the right way for this species and I can't find a guide on the internet.
For instance if I was going to prune a rose cane I'd prune back to a bud.
With some trees if you remove a branch you have to remove the entire branch down to where it meets a larger branch.
Crepe Myrtles are somewhere in between and many people just lop the tops off every year.
So how would I prune a Mountain Laurel?
