Best times of year to bend bald cypress, crepe myrtle?

Hi folks,

Like the title says: when are the best times of year to seriously bend these trees?


Crepe Myrtle - when they’re young. They get really crispy and brittle as they age. Not to mention the bark is really delicate.

The best time is probably right before Spring with the next best time being in Fall before the vascular growth so it can heal any possible breaks.
