Trimming an Elm tree

Asked June 14, 2018, 11:34 AM EDT

I would like to know if cutting back a 40ft Elm tree at the end of June (in this 90 degree heat) will have any damaging impact?

Thank you for your question. Below are links that provide lots of details on how and when to prune a mature tree. First link discusses the various objectives for pruning. Second link specifically notes that Elms should be pruned in late winter.
