Pruning shrubs and trees

Email

March is considered the late dormant season of winter and the best time to do pruning on our shrubs and trees (especially deciduous trees -- those which lose their leaves). It is best to have pruning done by April 1, to avoid oak wilt disease, stem cankers, and fireblight. Pruning in late winter, just before the spring growth, leaves the fresh cuts exposed for a short time, as the new growth begins the wound-sealing process.
