How do you prune a spiral Alberta spruce?

Answer

The Spiral Dwarf Alberta Spruce needs to be pruned yearly in order to maintain its shape while still being manageable. To prune this tree, take a pair of gardening sheers and cut off new growths on a yearly basis, making sure to trim the tree back to its original form. How much you prune will depend on how tight of a spiral you want your tree to form. However, you should be careful to not cut off too much from the tree.
