Many gardeners recommend waiting until late fall or early spring to prune trees, as doing so during early fall can stimulate new growth as plants go dormant, which leads to problems down the line.

Make sure to check the forecast before you trim and choose a clear day; wet conditions put plants at greater risk of fungal diseases.
