The Q&A Archives: When To Prune

Question: How often and when should I prune my trees? I have two orange trees and two pecan trees. One of the pecan trees is only about a year and a half old.

Answer: Citrus trees are not routinely pruned. Generally only missplaced or damaged branches need to be removed. Pecan trees are graceful and shapely on their own and need only occasional thinning as they mature.
