THE TIME IS NOW TO PRUNE AND PLANT!

Dormant trees are prime for pruning and planting… and that time is NOW – after leaf drop and before bud break. Why?  During dormant pruning, there is less loss of important sugars in the tree, while bacterial and fungal diseases are less likely to infect a fresh cut in these cool temperatures, and with the leaves gone it’s easier to get an overall view of the tree’s structure and inspect for flaws.

Planting during the dormant season, conditions are cool and allow the plant to establish roots in the new location before spring rains and summer heat stimulate new top growth.
