Asked September 16, 2014, 9:52 AM EDT

I have a crepe myrtle that has some branches laying on my roof of my one story home. I have read that the best time to trim is late winter early or early spring. I'd like to get these branches off the roof before winter but don't want to damage the rest of the tree by doing this. Is it okay to prune just these branches and do the rest at the appropriate time of the year? Thanks in advance for reading my question

Before the tree branches damage the roof they should be pruned off, this will not harm the tree. The reason for spring pruning is to have more blooms develop on the resulting new growth.
