I have a couple of forynsia bushes in my yard. The plants have tall healthy branches but the plants are not very full. I think I should be pruning but I need a little advice for when and how much. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

So I need to trim it this spring after the blooms go away? Should I prune each branch a little or cut some of it back the the ground?

There are some excellent articles at this site on Forsythia, so if you would just go to the top of the page and type Forsythia search box you will find them. Hope this helps.
