When should I prune fruit trees?
Fruit trees such as apple trees, plum trees, pear trees and cherry trees should be pruned from mid-winter to just before bud break or before leaves appear. This is called dormant pruning. In BC's lower mainland climate this is generally from late February - early April.
What can I do to keep my trees healthy?
One look out the window and it's clear to see that fall is upon us. With winter being only weeks away, now is the best time to tackle tree and landscaping projects before the wet and windy weather take over.
So what sort of things should you be doing in the fall months?
- Shear hedges
- Spray dormant oil
- Prune fruit trees
- Deep root fertilize
Larger trees should be prepared properly for the upcoming storm season. This means safety pruning to remove dead and poorly attached branches.
