Pruning trees through winter can reduce spread of oak wilt

Late autumn, starting Nov. 1 through winter is a good time for tree pruning, according to Wisconsin Department of Natural Re­sources (DNR) tree health experts.

Pruning during winter greatly reduces the likelihood of spreading oak wilt and other tree diseases and minimizes pruning stress on trees.

“The best time to prune trees in Wisconsin isn’t in April; it’s during winter when a tree is dormant,” said DNR Urban Forester Don Kiss­ing­er.
