My avocado tree is beginning to grow avocado's. Assuming that we have a good harvest this year, when would be the best time to prun my avocado tree? I also have a plum and apple tree which have not yet born fruit. Shall I wait until they bear fruit before pruning?

December or January is the best time to prune avocado, plum and apple trees. You can prune to maintain a specific size, regardless of the age of the tree. Hope this answers your question.
