Winter is a great time during the year to do most pruning of trees and shrubs in the greater Houston area. We urge you to keep your trimming to modest reshaping. Extreme pruning stimulates regrowth, and late winter would be a better time to encourage that. This is especially true of White Oak because this is the time when oak wilt is limited in its spreading.
The best time to prune trees actually varies with the species of tree and the temperature patterns in our area. Advantages of pruning trees at the right time are better disease resistance and increased healthy growth. For blooming and fruiting trees pruning trees at the right time will increase blooms and fruit yields as well.
