What is this tree and do I need to prune it?
I'm new to Texas and new to gardening and have a question: We have these trees in our front yard (see photo) but we don't know what they are.
In summer they had pink blooms that were quite fragrant. Now they are completely bare, not a single leaf remaining, only a few small black and dried balls that used to be the fruit, I assume. When we moved here, it seemed that these trees, along with the rest of the yard, had been largely neglected and left to their own devices. They already had some dry branches without leaves, even in summer.
Do I need to prune these trees before spring comes? If so, how much do I need to cut them back? I've never done this before and I don't want to damage the tree.
