DEC Conservationist Magazine Includes Winter Pruning Feature by Christina McLaughlin
“Pruning in late winter and early spring minimizes
dieback of the inner bark and helps the wound-healing process. Pruning cuts can dry out some in winter due to low humidity, so waiting to cut a damaged limb until late winter or early spring can improve the tree’s healing process.”
—DEC Urban and Community Forestry Partnership Coordinator Christina McLaughlin
