Prune to shape leggy plants, to control size, to renew vigor of older plants, or to remove weak and dead branches. Cut back to a leaf or growth bud, to a larger branch, or the main trunk as closely as possible. Paint larger cuts (1/2″ or more) with tree dressing. Heavy pruning should be done in the spring before new growth, or in the fall.
