How long do evergreen bushes live? I have some 28 years old.
Janet Pizaro on May 14, 2018Is there something wrong with them?Helpful Reply
Nancy Turner on May 14, 2018If they are well cared for and kept shaped up, they could last a long, long, time. They may start looking straggly as they get older, especially from the bottom and you may want to replace them at that point just to make things look better.Helpful Reply
Landsharkinnc on May 14, 2018think 'Sequoia' or 'Bristle Cone Pine' --- some can live thousands of years -- BUT, in the home garden, many may get too large, or begin to 'age' sooner than that! 28 is not 'old'.... if it is looking 'shopworn', you may want to consider having an Arborist take a look and advise pruning, feeding, etc. Your local Agricultural Agent can give you the name of a CERTIFIED Arborist ... not just someone that has a 'tree trimming' business ---Helpful Reply
