Q.Horse Chestnut Pruning

Zone southwest Oxforshire | Anonymous added on February 18, 2021 | Answered

you mention to avoid pruning horse chestnut trees from early spring to mid-summer, but then recommend instead from mid-spring to mid-summer. can you better define this in terms of months/mid-months. I’m confused.

The safest time to prune would be in mid to late winter, when the tree is dormant. In months that would be in January to February in the northern hemisphere and July to August in the southern hemisphere.
