Pruning a Crepe Myrtle Tree

I planted crepe myrtles this past summer. I need to know when and how to trim them. I have 26 trees along my driveway.

Hardiness Zone: 8a

Don't butcher the tree as so many mowing crews do. If you want one trunk, prune away the others. If you want multiple trunks, just prune the limbs that cross. Make sure you check the variety and see what the mature size will be in case they are planted too close together. I planted twigs 20 years ago and now they are taller than my house.
