    I have a customer who wants a 15 foot high Holley Tree trimed back , Square up . Our hot spell has turned ito rain for the kast few days , with sun returning in a day or two . Is it safe to trim a Holley Tree in August say 65-70 degrees F.

    How durastic is the trimming going to be? Since its established, you can trim off a few branches here and there and it will be fine, but if your going to do some significant pruning, it would be best to wait untill fall.

    Trim them - no risk to just shape them up
