I have a large pecan tree in my yard. My question is when should I prune and how much should be removed.It is a rather full tree and the limbs seem very burdened in the late summer.

John,

Pruning is done in late winter. A large tree needs very little pruning. Just remove broken limbs or those that are too low basically. This year has brought a heavy nut crop to Texas pecans. Propping up limbs may help but there is little else you can do at this time.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
