Pruning and spraying at same time

I am behind on these things due to being sick. Is there any concern doing pruning right before or right after Spaying dormant oil and liqui-cop on a peach tree?

(the scions some of you are waiting on will hopefully be sent tomorrow)

I don’t think so; I’ve done it before and will almost certainly be doing it this year as my spraying is going to need to start in a week or less and the pruning is nowhere near done.


I try to spray after I prune as the tree is open to fungal or bacterial infection. Especially cherry trees. MSU says you should spray before and after pruning cherry trees. We have a bad bacterial canker problem here, so it’s suggested to spray before and after pruning with copper.
