Winter Pruning

January and February is the right time to prune fruit trees. This is when the trees are dormant for the winter and allow you to see through them.

During winter pruning, dead and senescent branches are removed because they are susceptible to disease and can therefore damage the entire tree or shrub. Too many randomly growing branches drain all the sap from the tree. The result is that it bears less, smaller or no fruit at all.
