Can I prune a pear tree now?
Hardiness Zone: 4b

Prune away any broken or diseased branches any time of the year. It's important to get these off and away from your tree so that they don't sap nutrients from the tree.
Wait until just before spring to do any major pruning. Make sure you have the right pruning shears for the job. You should have a couple different sizes of shears at your disposal. Do not prune if the tree has any new growth on it wait till after the fruit is made and gone. Good luck. (03/18/2010)
