Hello, I just bought a Ruby tears weeping crabapple from an end of the year sale. I live in zone 5a in Iowa. I am going to plant it this weekend and had a few questions. There is an obvious graft right above the root flare.

Will this matter if I want to train the central leader a few feet higher. Jul 20, The time for crabapple pruning is when the tree is dormant, but when the possibility of severely cold weather has passed. This means pruning should be done in late winter or early spring, depending on your local climate and temperatures. Mar 26, Cutting encourages more. Digging carefully around the base of the tree to the roots that are producing the suckers will not harm the tree.

As for trimming, prune each branch individually back up to an outward facing branch or bud. If you shear it without regards to buds or branches you will have dead leafless stubs. This is a tree, not a hedge.

To do this, prune them at the point where they are connected to the trunk - this is the base.

Aug 25, The 1st step to crabapple pruning is to remove the suckers from the base of the tree. Suckers are shoots that grow from a bud at the base of a tree from its roots or lower trunk. Suckers often grow a lot more than other shoots on the tree. Select branches spaced at least 6 inches apart. Prune back branches below the first permanent branch 8 to 12 inches from the trunk.

Remove these branches when the trunk is 2 inches or more in.
