Oaks and Elms

 

The best time of year to prune or trim Oaks and Elms are from November through March. Pruning during dormancy is the most common practice. It is usually best to wait until the coldest part of the winter has passed. Spring is usually the best time to leave trees alone.

 

Fruit Trees

 

For fruit trees, it is recommended that you don't prune between March 30th and May 30th. This will be most helpful in preventing "fire plight".

 

Flowering Trees

 

To enhance flowering, these are guidelines for you to consider.

 

- For trees and shrubs that bloom in the summer or fall on current year's growth, it is recommended that pruning be done in the winter.

 

- For trees and shrubs that bloom in spring from buds on one year old wood, it is recommended that pruning be done when their flowers fade.
