Mulberry Tree – when to trim

Zone 40508 Sweden | SellyC added on November 3, 2017 | Answered

Hello, I live in Sweden and I have a mulberry tree (not so common here in this cold country). Unfortunately I need to trim it due to some building work in the garden. We are in Winter and the temp range between 2-12 degrees right now and even 0 in the night some days. Can I trim it? If yes, what can I do to protect the branches from rotting or freezing. Please advice. thanks Selly

I would advise to trim these during dormancy, but when the temperatures remain over 10C. This is, usually, right before it starts putting on new growth. This article will help:
