Even though Winter is in full swing it doesn’t mean all plant care should stop. There are many benefits to pruning trees during the dormant season.
Best Time – The best time to prune most deciduous trees (trees that lose their leaves) is late fall to early spring while the tree is still in the dormant stage.
Non-Intrusive – When pruning is done during the dormant season there is not as much visual impact to the landscape.
Better Overall Visual View – When trees have no leaves, it gives the arborist the best picture of how the tree will handle the wind and look its best following pruning.
Pruning trees is not easy. Different species of trees require different methods of pruning. Pruning at the wrong time of year and improper pruning can be harmful to the overall health of a tree.
