Rogue River Valley, Oregon - Southern Oregon is divided into three main river basins; the Umpqua River, the Rogue River, and the Klamath Basin. The Umpqua meets the Pacific at Reedsport, the Rogue mouth is near Gold Beach, and the Klamath empties at the Redwoods National Park in Northern California. All three rivers have their headwaters in the Cascade Mountains on the slopes of Crater Lake, Oregon's only national park. The Rogue River is a designated National Scenic River, and formed much of the backdrop for the Meryl Streep movie "The River Wild." Jet boat trips and white water rafting are very popular.

Pruning Shrubs

Overgrown Bushes

Pruning or trimming

First decide the shape you want the bush/shrub to be eventually.

Next, follow some pruning basics:
Cut away no more than a third of the bush per year.
When thinning overly dense growth, cut away any branches that cross over another or are growing toward the middle of the bush.

Flowering shrubs - Always prune after the blosoms are gone.
Always take a moment to look over your work. Don't get impatient when cutting.

Trimming and pruning is a process as well as a technique.
You can always come back and trim a little more off later.

Depending on the species, you may have some pretty tough decisions to make. Certain bushes require a little more imagination and patience to create a great looking product, some just need to be replaced.
