OK, but in that case, wouldn't I be better off pruning now, rather than
waiting for dormant pruning? After all, in either case, the wound won't
be healed by spring. But it might be a LITTLE further along if I prune now.
One way or another, I HAVE to prune these trees, either now or later.
Note that it's almost September, and I still haven't pruned these last
few trees, so I don't know if I'll get to it, anyway. Frankly, just
picking everything is taking all my time. But that's not a bad problem
to have, I suppose. :-)
