Pruning Mountain Laurel
We have a large Mountain Laurel. This winter with our 24 inches of snow, it was flatted, laying completely on the ground. It's come back and is healthy and green, but it's leaning a lot and is really too large for the front of your house. I hate to cut it down because it's a beautiful plant. How much and when can I cut it back without killing it? It's probably over 15 feet tall and 10 feet wide. I'd like it to be half that size.
