My husband decided to "prune" our yaupon hollies - he has cut them back to just Y's off of the trunk. I loved those trees and now they are really ugly! He insists that they will grow back by the end of the summer, but he didn't talk to a nursery or landscape person before doing this. I'm hoping someone on here will know this kind of holly and be able to advise me on what to expect. My husband said if these won't grow back quickly that he will simply yank them out and put in new ones.
