Question
What type
What type  

What type
What type  
I live in southeast New Mexico ....and how should I trim them

Answer
Hi Eric,

It looks like photinias that have some age on them.  I would cut them back height wise back down to where they are full - where all that shrubby growth is concentrated.  Don't worry too much about making a mistake.  These are hardy shrubs and take to pruning.
Thanks,
Susan
