Answer: If you are going to prune a mulberry tree it is best to do it when it is dormant in winter.
You should try to limit your pruning to dead, diseased and crossed branches. Mulberry trees bleed when cut so it is best to limit cuts to those branches smaller than 2 inches in diameter so the wound can heal and help prevent the entry of pathogens. Whilst pruning disinfect secateurs to prevent to transfer of pathogens. In spring when new growth starts to appear apply Dynamic Lifter Plus Organic Based Fruit Food to encourage strong growth, flowering and fruiting.
