Forsythia Pruning

Anonymous added on April 28, 2014 | Answered

I understand that I should prune my large forsythia tree in the spring just after flowering. However, I see that where the yellow flowers have started to die, green leaves are appearing. Therefore does it matter if I cut back the branches together with the new leaves? Thank you in advance for your reply.
