When Should You Prune or Trim Your Trees?
#1 Late Fall Through Early Spring
Most arborists prune trees in fall through early spring. During these colder seasons, most trees go dormant, shedding their leaves and halting their growth. This inactivity makes it easier for arborists to see and prune branches.
#2 When a Tree Has Dead or Diseased Branches
Trees can get diseases like any other living thing. Mold, mildew, pests, and stem and root damage can cause severe damage to trees.
Discolored leaves and hollow branches or trunks all point to dead or diseased trees. Pruning and removing a diseased or dead tree is a job best left to the professionals from American Tree and Stump.
#3 When Tree Branches Pose a Safety Risk
Decaying branches and trees pose a significant safety risk. These trees can easily fall on your home or business – or people – when subjected to winter storms or high winds.
A professional arborist can inspect these trees and determine which ones to prune and which ones to remove entirely. They can also advise on the tree removal cost.
#4 Depending on the Types of Trees You Have
Professional tree experts generally recommend tree pruning to get rid of dead, weak, or infected branches to curb the spread of disease.
However, pruning depends on the types of trees you have. Pruning oak trees is a delicate procedure, as it can change the way the tree grows. Arborists prune deciduous trees in late fall to winter and sub-tropical trees all year round.
On the other hand, flowering trees are pruned immediately after blooming, and young trees are trimmed regularly to prevent the need for excessive trimming when they’ve matured. Arborists should be able to advise you on the best time for tree trimming, removing a tree, and other tree services.
