Some Reasons Why Trees Need Pruning A good time to conduct tree pruning is during the dormant season when you can clearly see the structure of the trees, maximize closure of their wounds, reduce disease and eliminate the excessive flow of sap if any. Pruning calls also for different plants, for example the flowering shrubs that require pruning during dormant season, and trees and shrubs, dogwood and red-bud that would need pruning right after they flower when they blossom in early spring. Some flowering trees need pruning during dormant season since they can be susceptible to fire blight and bacterial disease, and example of these trees are crab apple, pear, varieties of hawthorn, mountain ash, pyracantha and flowering quince. It is during the dormant season that trees that flower during summer or fall have to be pruned. Of course, dead branches can be removed at all times when noticed. Be informed that the shape or form of fruit trees will not be developed properly without training or pruning. It is a fact that fruit trees, which are properly pruned and trained, have higher quality of fruit and live a longer life span. Thus, the objective to prune and train trees is to give the trees strong framework so they can support a large crop of fruit. Be aware then that if your fruit trees are not trained properly, the angles of their branches could be too upright and will have the possibility of breaking once they carry heavy crops. In this case, the productivity of your trees could reduce and the lives of the trees could also shorten.

There is an opening up of canopies and maximum penetration of light when you prune your trees properly. There is a good development of buds leading to a high quality of flavour of fruits if there is a maximum penetration of light. You are correcting the growth of a tree and thus minimize its cutting by training or pruning it. It is also worthwhile to note that trees have different reaction to summer pruning and dormant pruning. It is said that the tree’s energy is not changed when you remove a large part of it during dormancy. While in spring, the tree will react by producing many upright branches that will shade the tree and stop good development. Dormant tree pruning therefore is better done in the late season to avoid injury during winter. The practice therefore in pruning trees would be to start with the older ones and do the pruning last with the younger trees. When it comes to summer pruning, it is advisable to complete it before the end of July so as to avoid problems of winter injury, and take note that it is only for removing upright growth of branches.
