Now that summer is in full swing, your trees should be looking healthy and strong, but when autumn comes around and the leaves start browning and dropping you may think it would be a good time to trim/prune your trees whilst doing your autumn garden clean-up. However, we're here to tell you why that might not be the best idea.
The best time to prune your branches is between the changing leaves in late autumn and the blooms in spring.
Typically a tree's pruning cycle is 3-5 years, but type, size, and health are all variables.
In autumn and winter trees enter a dormant stage, halting their growth. The inactivity and low temperatures are ideal for pruning, as pruning after new growth has started can limit growth potential for that year.
