WHY PRUNE TREES?

Through proper pruning practices, by removing dead rotting limbs, we are able to limit the spread of decay. This in turn will also lower the hazard of branches falling and causing harm. We remove trees where necessary, no tree is too large.

WHY REMOVE AND PRUNE TREES IN WINTER?

Trees are dormant.

Structural pruning or shaping in winter prepares trees for more balanced and healthy growth in the spring.

Without leaves, we can better see the branch architecture and determine which dead, broken or crossing branches should be removed.

Apple and other fruiting trees are pruned in winter to optimize fruit production.

Less impact on lawn and property when the ground is frozen.

BENEFITS OF SHRUB PRUNING

Shrub pruning is needed to help control the size and shape of your shrubs. Pruning can also help with airflow and with light penetration into the center of the shrub to enhance shrub health. The winter is a good time to do hand pruning for airflow and light penetration. Winter is also a good time to aggressively reduce the size of overgrown shrubs.
