Q.Fruitless Mulberry Pruning

Anonymous added on March 23, 2014 | Answered

I have a fruitless mulberry plant that I pruned late in the winter, but there were several tall branches that I couldn’t reach (the branches alone are taller than my house). I now have an offer to help with the tree, but I don’t know if I should do so because the tree is growing new leaf buds. Is now a good time or should I wait?

The best time to prune mulberries is in winter after the leaves have dropped. Remove broken or diseased branches any time of year. I would not recommend any pruning once the tree begins budding unless you just have to.
