The problem is that those who advocate humane management of overpopulated animal species are being branded murderous and blood thirsty.

Stone fruits (cherries/plums etc) must not be pruned in the autumn/winter or they are likely to get Silverleaf Disease.

The time to prune cherries is around midsummer - lots of info here
