When is the best time of year to prune my trees?

All varieties of trees have different pruning requirements.    It's an often misconceived idea that trees should be pruned during the winter months while the trees lie in a dormant state.

In more recent years, we've come to realise there is no correct time of year to prune many species of trees.  However, some species (e.g. Oak, Maple, Flowering Cherry) should be pruned in the height of summer in order to prevent the harbor of pest and disease.

Like clipping your nails, provided pruning is kept regular and minor, in most instances, any time of year is suitable.
