How to Prune Weeping Mulberry Trees

Video transcription

Hi, I'm Jene with Jene's Tropicals. Today, I'm going to demonstrate how to prune a weeping mulberry tree. These are the materials you'll need, Hydrogen Peroxide or alcohol or a diluted bleach and a pair of sharp pruners and if your cuts are large, a spray can of pruning paint. The first thing you need to do is examine the tree and study where all of the dead wood is. Get rid of all the dead and decaying wood. The next thing you want to do is open up the tree, any branches that are crossing you want to take off. Basically you want your tree to have good air circulation in the center and to grow like an umbrella. If the sun can get into the middle, then your tree will be really really productive all over. Next, after you thin the middle of the tree out, as you can see this tree is just coming out of dormancy so now is a great time to prune it. You want to come in and just tip it. Come in on top of the, right just before a node where the new growth is going to come out. This will help push the bud out. This tree will have an abundance of mulberries in about two to three months so enjoy. I'm Jene. Have a great day.
