Pruning Timing

The best time to prune a tree will vary based upon tree species and pruning objectives. Flowering can be increased or decreased by pruning at certain times of the year. As a general rule, the dormant season is the best time to prune. Why?

  • Minimizes the risk of insect pest issues
  • No threat of diseases such as oak wilt
  • A tree's stored energy is at its highest
  • Easier to inspect a tree's crown for structural issues
