When is a good time to prune my trees?

It depends on what the pruning is to accomplish. Properly completed maintenance pruning, which comprises approximately 80% to 90% of the pruning necessary, can be completed at anytime of the year. It’s not so important when it’s completed, although it is critical that it be properly done. Poor pruning techniques, e.g. topping and over thinning, should never be completed regardless of the time of the year. All the remaining 10% to 20% of pruning that consists of shaping, flower and fruit production should be determined by our Arborist Representative to properly achieve the goals and outcome. With this type of pruning, timing and proper pruning procedures are most important.
