Answer: There are only a few rules when pruning avocado trees. Remove dead or damaged wood on your avocado tree at any time to help stimulate growth and prevent further damage to your tree. Prune your tree sparingly; Try to remove as little healthy green wood and green leaves as possible. Pruning should not be performed in late summer or early spring. Stimulate growth by making cuts as close to a lateral hanging branch as possible. If large branches are removed while pruning, your entire avocado tree will be stimulated to grow, however large branches should only be removed if absolutely necessary. Good luck with your pruning project.
