The Q&A Archives: Pruning a Weeping Fruitless Mulberry

Question: How do I prune a weeping mulberry tree? How much can I cut off?

Answer: The time to prune would be in early spring rather than now. The usual pruning guidelines would apply; begin by removing any winter damaged branches, broken or badly rubbing branches, then prune for shape. Do not remove more than 25% of the branches at a time. If you need to remove more than that, spread the work over several years. Also, make sure you do not damage the graft when you prune.
