Winter is one of the best times for tree maintenance.
Here are six reasons why:
1. Most pests are inactive during the colder months. As a result, infection or infestation of fresh pruning wounds is very unlikely;
2. While trees are dormant, there is a greatly reduced chance of undesirable physiological reactions from pruning;
3. It is easier to observe and prune dead/defective limbs without the concealment of dense summer foliage;
4. Trees get an earlier start on “healing” pruning wounds during the spring, which reduces the odds of subsequent infection;
5. While pests and diseases are dormant, there is a much less chance of infecting neighboring branches and trees through airborne dust created during chipping and cutting;
6. And finally, we offer significant savings on all our award-winning services during the winter months!
