Q.when to prune cherry dogwood

Zone 48150 | Anonymous added on October 16, 2019 | Answered

I need to prune a few branches from my cherry dogwood tree. I thought I read to do it in late fall so as not to allow bugs into sappy ends. Now I’m reading to do it in spring; one says after blossoms, one says before. Now I’m not sure when to prune! I live in southeast Michigan

Pruning in the dormant season is recommended a dogwoods bleed sap if pruned after spring bloom. This is for normal pruning to shape a tree. The best time to remove diseased, damaged and dying wood is immediately to prevent disease or pests from invading other limbs. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/trees/dogwood/trimming-dogwood-trees.htm
