Most of us only think about pruning plants or trees in the warm months of spring. But, we actually recommend that you properly prune your trees during the winter. Pruning deciduous trees in the winter is important to their overall health and will benefit the look of your landscaping into the spring and summer months.
Winter is actually the ideal time of year to prune your trees because:
Trees are dormant and not using a lot of energy reserves.
The full structure of the tree can be seen since its leaves are gone.
Dead, diseased, rubbing, crossing, and broken branches can be removed.
Pruning improves the overall health and the structure of your tree.
If you are unsure of how to properly prune your trees, don't have the proper equipment, or your tree is large enough that you can't reach its limbs safely, we recommend that you call a reputable tree service, like ours, before you try this alone. Improper pruning can harm your trees as well as greatly reduce the aesthetics of your landscaping. Each cut you make has the potential to change the growth of your tree and in most cases, it is better to not prune your tree than to do it incorrectly. In addition, pruning a mature tree can be a very dangerous task without the proper equipment or expertise.
We offer winter discounts for pruning. Contact us today to winter prune your trees:

I never knew that tree branches could get infested with pests or infected with diseases. I've been thinking of growing trees on my lawn after seeing them in movies. I'll be sure to keep this in mind so I can find a tree expert when necessary.
