When to prune a california pepper tree?
I have a California pepper tree (Schinus molle) that I was convinced was a goner after last winter. To my surprise, it came back to life last spring and has almost doubled in size. But it really doesn't look like a tree, just a big bush. I'd like to prune some of the lower branches off to encourage it to look more like a tree. When is the best time to prune with this species?
