Question: 108-5201
Can I prune my hollies now (September)? Bob, Atlantic City, NJ

Mort's Answer:
If you wait a little longer the berries will be red. You can do no harm by pruning now. Remove the tangential branches at the intersection and make a clean flush cut. Hollies make excellent decorations at Thanksgiving and Christmas.
