Hi, Steve from Naples. Just want to know if some trees of mine can be defoliated come springtime. The trees in question are, water jasmine, Chinese ligustrum, and texas ebony.

Hi, I'm in a more tropical location than you, but for what it is worth, water jasmine here can be safely defoliated just about any time.

a more important question than "can" they be defoliated, is "should" they be defoliated. Defoliation is done at certain stages of a tree's development, to accomplish specific things. You need to be certain about what you are trying to accomplish, and that it is appropriate for your specific trees at their specific stage of development.

And we cant really answer that for you, without knowing a whole lot more about your trees.
