What is The Best Time For Tree Trimming?



There are many reasons for growing beautiful trees in the area surrounding your house. First of all, these assist in keeping the air clean, these provide shade and keep the temperature low and of course, these enhance the scenic beauty of the place. For the front yard, decorative trees are more suitable while for the backyard or the kitchen garden, fruit trees are preferred.

In addition to the general care, trees also need specialized care like trimming and pruning. This care is required more during particular parts of the year to prevent tree diseases, let them grow upright and give them a nice shape. These processes help in getting rid of the dead or the diseased tree branches. But it is very important that tree pruning or trimming is done by a professional because improper trimming may cause harm to the tree. Also, it should be done at an appropriate time of the year.

The best time to trim a tree is the dormant season i.e. during the late winters or the arrival of the spring. This is because during this time, the trees start budding again. So the wounds remain for a lesser time. The dead or damaged branches, the diseased portions of the tree and the branches interfering with other branches because of being too close are to be pruned. This avoids spreading of the disease to other parts of the tree and lets the tree grow up into a regular shape.

Pruning the trees during peak winters will increase the trauma to the trees as this time is a resting time for them. There are various other ifs and buts involved in the tree pruning process so it is always better to assign this significant task professional tree trimming companies so that your trees and plants get the care they deserve.

  3. My wife and I have decided to go with a tree removal service for our yard. It has gotten to the point where our tree is pretty much dead and it's so tall that it's a safety hazard during storm season. I would love to plant new ones in their place and keep them maintenance unlike the previous owners. Thank you for your informative blog!

  32. I have a tree in my yard that I definitely need removed. A lot of the tree has died from a tree disease so it's mostly dead anyway. Also, whenever it storms, a lot of branches break off into our yard. I'm just nervous that one of those times will result in the tree crashing down on the house. I really hate getting rid of the tree since it's been here so long, but I don't have much of a choice. Maybe I can plant a new one in it's place. http://www.simonstreesurgery.com.au/tree-removal/

  33. I couldn't agree more. We have had the tree in our yard grow a lot since we moved in. We're really hoping to keep it that way! It's well worth the money spent on tree care. Thiago | http://www.treesafe.com.au

  34. I guess I was doing this wrong. I used to trim my trees in early fall, right after the leaves fell. Could that have caused my trees to stop growing properly? I'm hoping to do it right from now on so that my kids will be able to have a shade tree to play under.

  56. It's good to know that tree trimming should be taken care of is late winter or early spring. Based on that, I guess I should get ready to have my trees trimmed very soon. I can't imagine it'll stay cold outside much longer, so I'll probably look into taking care of it once it's warm enough. At the very least, it'd be nice to wait until the snow melts.

  57. I think that my favorite time of year for my trees is the spring, since the blossoms are so beautiful. That being said, I would never think to trim them right before the spring. It makes a lot of sense though, since there wouldn't be too many leaves getting in the way and making the job more difficult. I am excited to see if my trees become more full of blossoms after pruning for a few years in a row.

  58. I've always noticed that the beginning of spring is the best time for trimming trees. At that time, the trees are mainly dormant and haven't bloomed yet. By doing so, you will remove the dead branches and also cause less damage to the trees. Mostly going off of what the article says. http://greatlandtree.com/services

  59. Thank you so much for the information about when the best time is to get your tree's trimmed. I just moved into a new home that has a lot of large trees surrounding the house. They look like they could use a trimming, however, I wasn't sure when to do it until I read this article. I didn't know that the best time to get a tree trimmed was during the dormant season. It looks like I will have to wait for the next one.
