January ITs time to trim deciduous trees like elm, ash, desert willow, chaste tree, peach, plum and other fruits trees. Leave citrus, ficus and other frost-sensitive trees alone right now. They still need their winter coats for a couple more months. Trimming of vigorous evergreens is OK if it’s not too cold and the pruning is not too heavy. As in December, if necessary you can give trees such as sumacs, eucalyptus and mesquites a light semi-annual pruning to keep them safe until heavier pruning in the summer. If you plan to spray your olive trees to reduce fruiting, pruning them now before they are sprayed will help give your spray applicator better coverage.
February You should schedule citrus pruning after February 15, the average last day of frost in Phoenix. Pruning can be done through mid-March, the aim being to wait to prune as long as possible to avoid frost damage, but before citrus blossoms set. Also if some fruit drops during pruning, it’s usually sweet enough to eat. Heavy cutting back of certain shrubs and trees can be done during this time frame too. If pruned now, new growth will have time to harden off before hot weather arrives. You can still spray olives this month. Although light pruning can be done year-round on deciduous trees, early February is the last month for heavier crown reduction and thinning.
Now is the time to put down the first of four applications of citrus fertilizer (Feb/May/Aug/Oct).
March Now is prime time for pruning most evergreen trees and shrubs. This is the last chance to prune citrus and ficus and other sun-sensitive trees. Be careful. If you wait too long, new foliage will not have time to fill in before sun damage occurs. As a rule, any area of bark exposed to direct sun for 3 or 4 hours needs to be protected with shade cloth or tree wrap to prevent sunscald. There are two general rules for pruning flowering trees and shrubs: For plants that produce blooms on old wood or last season’s growth, prune as soon as possible after the bloom ends. For flowering plants that produce blooms on new wood or this season’s growth, prune in late winter or early spring. March is a good month for fertilizing all trees. It’s also a good time to apply a 2-3 inch layer of mulch around the base of trees and shrubs. This relatively inexpensive soil amendment does more to improve growing conditions around desert plants than any other treatment including fertilization. It reduces soil temperatures, runoff and evaporation, encourages nitrogen cycling and improves soil microbiology.
April Now’s the time to check your irrigation system for proper function and reset your timer for hotter temperatures. Increase duration, not frequency, of watering cycles as temperatures increase. It’s better to water deeply and less often, especially if your trees are in turf settings. Be careful not to over-water though. It’s a two-edged sword. It has been said that more trees die in Arizona of over-watering than under-watering. Ideally the root zone should dry out entirely between waterings. Avoid putting water on top of water. March and April are great months to plant citrus and most other trees as soil temperatures have warmed up and root activity increases. There may still be time to spray your olives, but you need to schedule soon.
May is a good time to prune trees to prevent storm breakage during summer monsoons in July and August. Alleviate end weight on heavy branches. Mesquite and eucalyptus trees are especially prone to wind damage. If your trees have been lion-tailed in the past, consider pruning them properly to alleviate end weight. Lion’s tailing is an unacceptable pruning practice. It removes an excessive number of interior branches along the trunk and main branches. Not only are these smaller branches critical to protecting the tree from sunburn; they also help their host branches develop taper that is needed to support increasingly end weight as the tree matures. Trim date palms in May. If you wait another month, the dates will be larger and heavier and the clean-up and hauling is more difficult and expensive.
May is the month for the second application of citrus fertilizer. (Feb/May/Aug/Oct)
June The heat of summer is the best time to plant and transplant palm trees. Trim Mexican fan palms after June 15th to be sure to get all the seed pods in one trimming. Trim Queen palms anytime after June 1st. Queen palm seed pods continue to emerge throughout the fall and winter, so the longer you wait, the more seed pods you will remove. There’s still time to prepare for the monsoon winds by pruning larger trees. Consider installing staking systems on younger trees and adjusting systems on established trees. Proper staking should be strong enough to keep the tree upright in strong winds but loose enough to allow the trunk to move. This movement sends a message to the roots to get active in anchoring the tree. Like May, June is a great time to alleviate end weight on your trees before the monsoon winds arrive in July. As you’ll see in the July/August section we recommend late summer pruning of mesquites and other vigorous tree varieties. Just be careful not to wait too long to prune them. If your trees look heavy, especially at branch ends, it may be best to prune sooner than later.
