When Is The Best Time To Trim A Dogwood Tree

?

When you notice that the dogwood is not growing as well or it’s just about to bloom, take action and cut back the tree. Cut back the tree in early spring before new growth begins. This will encourage a healthier plant to emerge from winter dormancy. Dogwoods do not produce flowers until they are 3-4 years old so cutting them down at this time does not hurt their development and can actually help them flourish.
