The Benefits Of Dormant Season Pruning

A tree’s inactivity, coupled with the outdoor elements, makes pruning during this time beneficial to your trees, including:

  • It rids trees of weak or damaged branches before they become a hazard
  • It improves branch patterns and directs future growth
  • Disease is less likely to spread when you prune in winter vs. other times of the year
  • Arborists have easier access to trees in winter, saving them time and saving you money
