The Q&A Archives: Fall shrub and tree trimming

Question: I live near Ft Worth TX. When should I ideally trim my oak trees and shrubs. The vegetation is only 2 years old as my home was new construction.

Answer: Since your trees and shrubs are relatively young, I'd wait until spring (March) to do any pruning. That's when new growth will begin and pruning just prior to that new spring growth will allow you to keep the trees and shrubs looking nice and neat. Enjoy your new landscape!
