I wanted to prune this tree and found it to be too late a couple of days ago since it started to bud. The other photos shows plant buds that I saw while digging up my front and side yard. Thank you.
Leaves of newly budded tree
And here is one bud in the front of the house
Lastly, on the side of my house, this budding plant
1 & 2 Look like Lilac which can have root sprouts.
3 is a Daylily I believe.
Melekmi - there is no reason not to prune a lilac now if you want to. It will not harm the tree, although you might lose some flowers this year.
The sprouts in pic 2 could be Lilac. But tree no. 1 has alternate leaves so isn't a Lilac. Can you show us another photo when the leaves are further developed?
I'd suspect Phytolacca (pokeweed) for the sprouts, 3rd pic.
i prune trees and shrubs.. when they piss me off.. i dont know why buds have anything to do with the decision ...
the only exception is spring flowering plants.. i enjoy the flowers.. and prune immediately after such ... or.. see above.. lol ...
though based on these pix.. i am not sure they are lilac ... i dont know why ...
the buds out front.. the soil looks recently turned.. was something removed????
mulching your beds.. would aid the dryness of the soil ...
