Crape Myrtle Trees

Have crape myrtle trees (adult). Does it make any difference when I cut off the seed pod after blooming? Thanks.

You can remove these if you want or leave them. Either way is fine and will not cause any issues with the tree. If you choose to take these pods off, these articles should help with pruning: [1]

I live in zone 9.

Seed pods may be removed any time. I just leave mine on since my trees are so large.
