You can. The dead branches you cut your cherry trees at several points during the year Cut trees must not their wounds dressed if you make the right cuts in maintenance. Proper cuts are flush with the branches so that they do not leave stubs or horizontal cuts angled so regulate any water on the cutting surface, prevents the growth of pathogenic organisms, according to North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service.
To remove a hazard
Prune any time when the dead branch a danger. Prune dead branches if you have a problem growing on cherry trees near sidewalks, streets, driveways, or where children play in order to avoid an accident or injury notice.
Prune mature cherry trees are all areas that succumbed to the disease, were damaged or died should be removed. Sour cherries better if you commit light pruning every year, according to Utah State University Cooperative Extension. These trees have brittle wood and tend to narrow crotches that can develop and weaken the trees, so you should encourage the tree in the direction of wide-angle crotches by pruning and other practices such as the use of spreader.
Prune trees while they are dormant in late winter. Prune as late as possible in the season in the winter to prevent injuries from developing countries. If you have many trees, plum trees earlier and later flowering trees first, strikes the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service, saves under cherry trees for the last prune. Pruning ill or dying branches prevents infestations of pests such as the Pacific flathead borer, the injured or damaged areas of cherry trees are grown and can be seen as early as March, when spring temperatures are sufficiently high.
With Bloom Season
Prune cherry trees after they have finished flowering. Cherry trees bloom early in the season and the blooms occur at growth from the previous year. Pruning bloom before the trees can result in loss of flowers. Prune to thin in the summer of the current season's growth. Summer pruning should be done after flowering growth starts, but before the end of July, at the latest.
In the fall
Prune affected wood peachtree borer and kick drills and wood Eutypa death or cancer Cytospora infected. The wood on the affected cherry trees may be dead, dying, or simply signs of infestation. Destroy pruned wood by burning to avoid further problems. The University of California Davis Integrated Pest Management Program proposes the implementation of this maintenance of June to September.
