Winter pruning can be quite the chore depending on the size of your property and the number of trees you’re tasked with maintaining. The sooner you start, the less you’ll have to trim later on.
The purpose of pruning is to remove the five dangerous “d”s from your trees. These are dead, dying, diseased, damaged, or deformed branches. Each can cause damage to property and negatively impact the trees health. For this reason, these should be removed as soon as they are discovered.
Most trees can be pruned all the way into the winter season, however, it’s best not to wait that long. Not only is it more difficult to prune in the winter months, but there are more weather variables to consider. Pruning now allows the trees time to recover before the frost and snow set in. This helps it stay healthier and continue growing tall and strong for many seasons to come.
