Pruning at the correct time is important for the health of your trees. Pruning during the late dormant season (late winter, before spring growth begins) is best for most trees. Finish pruning your oaks in March; they should not be pruned in April, May, or June due to the potential for oak wilt infection. Apple trees, including crab apples, should be pruned anytime between February and early April because spring or summer pruning will increase the chance for infections and/or the spread of fire blight.
Ask the Master Gardener: Knowing the right time to prune your trees
