Winter is the time to prune apple and pear trees when they are dormant.
Spring is the time to prune young plum, gage and cherry trees.
Summer is the time to prune established plum, gage and cherry trees. It is also the time when trained shape trees are pruned. However, summer pruning of apple and pears can be done to slow their vigour.
