How And When To Prune Larch Tree

Question From: Grant Park, Illinois, United States
Q: Dear Nancy. I have a Larch tree and it requires pruning of side branches of about two feet all around. It is in zone 5, Illinois. Where do I make the cut safely and when? The tree is approx. 10 feet tall and has been in same location about 5 years. Thank You and any advice is appreciated. June

A: I can't advise you on that June. Take photos to your local independent garden center and talk to the " woodie specialist". Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
