Choosing when to prune certain plant species is very important and can be a bit tricky, especially when seasonal weather starts late as is the case this year. Pruning too late in spring or summer can increase the chance of infection and spread bacterial diseases like fire blight.
Tree trimming and pruning should only be done with a specific goal in mind. Although proper pruning can be a beneficial way to the care for trees and shrubs, every cut is a wound and trimming should always be done with careful consideration. It’s best to rely on the advice of a certified Arborist who understands the life cycle of various trees and shrubs and can provide professional advise on proper tree care and shrub service, at the right time of year.
