|When is the best time to prune Crepe Mrytle trees? We just planted them in the fall and they are rather small.|
|Crepe myrtles need very little pruning, so don't prune just because you think you should. Instead, maintain a natural form by thinning out crowded growth as your tree matures. The best time to prune a crepe myrtle is in late winter (February) prior to the start of new growth.
