When do you prune olive trees?

Answer

Olive trees should be pruned between the end of winter and flowering. Usually pruning before bud break is risky in cold climates as the plant can have a stunted growth. Removing shoots at bud break usually results in much more vigorous growth of the remaining shoots.
