Once or twice a year, my Yaupon holly gets a haircut. I cut back to the silhouette, remove branches that are growing up down and thin branches in crowded areas. The work is fun and the result is pleasing.

Depending on the weather, I can expect a new flush of growth ahead of winter. Were I preparing the tree for exhibit, I’d cut back a little earlier to make sure new shoots enough time to fill the silhouette in warm or cold weather.
