Pruning Figs (Now)

Anonymous added on April 6, 2011 | Answered

My fig tree is young (2nd growing season) and potted. I move the tree into my garage in the winter and cover it with burlap. I just uncovered it and saw that it has started to sprout leaves. Can I still prune it now?

I would not prune it after leaves have appeared. It makes it more susceptible to disease if it is pruned after it comes out of dormancy.
