By fertilizing your shrubs and greens many different things can happen. First, all living plant matter feeds for nutrients through your soil, the more grass, trees, shrubs, and plants in your yard the more competition. All of them utilize both the same and different types of nutrients. So biproducts of under fertilizing your trees and shrubs could cause them to wilt, yellow, disease, die or even spread roots above ground as they search for nutrients. They also tend to kill your lawn within a certain radius if not fed or given enough water. As they mature this can become rather costly as their root and size make them hard to remove or difficult to bring back to good health. Staying on top of them from a young age, strengthens them to combat all these issues as they age.
Secondly, by maintaining proper shaping and pruning at a young age your shrubs and trees learn to stay within certain boundries if done correctly. For instance by pruning a tree or shrub down low, they will grow taller as you take away area that they need to stay alive, they realize the lower branches are at risk so the next best way is up. The same can be done by cutting all branches in a particular direction. You can think of it as training the shrubs and trees. Doing so properly can avoid them growing in unwanted areas, directions and again reduce costs associated with correction when they have become large.
