The Q&A Archives: Trimming a Mulberry tree

Question: When is best time to prune a young mulberry tree and how should it be pruned.

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.
