Tree trimming (pruning) is an important service because it affects the structural integrity, aesthetic appeal, and ultimately the life span of your tree. A regular tree trimming process is used to eliminate competing leaders, potential hazards, dead wood, and promote healthy growth.
When To Prune
The optimal time to prune a tree is when it is in its dormant stage. Trimming in the summer or winter months,or shortly afterwards, is highly recommended. Doing so will allow for bountiful spring growth. Pruning in the fall is not ideal and can lead to fungal infections, disease, and stunted growth. However, sometimes, in hazardous situations, there is the need for immediate trimming or removal. In these instances trimming in the off seasons should occur.
