Q.Trimming A Crab Apple Tree

Zone 60007 | erarealife added on October 22, 2023 | Answered

We have a beautiful flowering crab apple tree right outside our kitchen window that seems to be getting overgrown. When is the ideal time to have it trimmed and reshaped? Growing heavier on one side than the other. Thank you for your help.

This will be best done in late winter or early spring. It needs to be done during dormancy, but after or before hard freezing weather.
