Pruning really is not widely considered a must (or even desirable) for this plant. For one thing, magnolia trees don’t heal as well as most from pruning cuts and, for another, you generally spoil a magnolia’s looks by pruning it. But if you still decide to prune, do so after flowering, so you can at least enjoy that year’s blooms.
