Magnolias are low maintenance and generally require no pruning other than removing dead wood and brushing branches. If pruning is necessary, it should be done immediately after flowering ends. Shrubby types can be easily contained in sizewith a pruning. Trimming with hedge clippers produces very dense growth. If this is not desired, thin the plant by initially completely removing a proportion of the branches, then trim the remaining growth as needed. Once Magnolia becomes more established, it is usually hardy and requires little maintenance. Magnolia grandiflora can be trimmed little and often if necessary and can be used as foliage for flower arrangements. This magnolia can be heavily pruned if necessary, reducing it to nearly ground level will not kill it. It will simply start popping out of the base.
