When’s the best time to prune trees?
It’s best not to prune trees during spring, when the ‘sap is rising’ to enable the leaves to flush (come out) and photosynthesis to begin, or during the autumn, when the tree is drawing nutrients back into itself from the leaves as they go brown. During these times trees can be more vulnerable to pest and disease attack.
Pruning during Autumn means the tree will not be able to get all the nutrients that it needs for the next spring and the tree may be put under unnecessary stress, increasing the likelihood of disease.
