There are some basic rules for pruning and our team insisted on showing you how it's done.
When to Prune?
It truly depends on some conditions. A light pruning and the removal of dead wood can be done anytime. But here are a few things to note during the different seasons.
Pruning during dormancy is the most common practice. It results in a vigorous burst of new growth in the spring and should be used if that is the desired effect. It is usually best to wait until the coldest part of winter has passed.
To direct the growth by slowing the branches you don’t want, or to “dwarf” the development of a tree or branch, pruning should be done soon after seasonal growth is complete. Another reason to prune in the summer is for corrective purposes. Defective limbs can be seen more easily.
