Pruning in Winter
The most required practice for plants is Pruning during dormancy. It results in a energetic burst of new enlargement in the coil and should be used if that is the preferred effect. It is regularly best to wait until the coldest part of winter has passed. Some class, such as maple, walnuts and birches, may bleed when the sap begins to flow. This is not damaging and will cease when the tree leafs out.
Pruning in Summer
To direct the enlargement by slowing the branches you don’t want; or to slow “dwarf” the development of a tree or branch, pruning should be done soon after recurring growth is complete. The reason for the slowing result is that you reduce the total leaf outside, thereby reducing the amount of food artificial and sent to the roots. Another reason to prune in the summer is for remedial purposes. Defective limbs can be seen more simply, or limbs that hang down too far under the weight of the leaves.
