Tree Care Tips

Winter Pruning

You might be surprised to know that winter is the ideal time to prune your oaks and elm trees. Introducing deadly diseases such as Oak Wilt or Dutch Elm Disease is much more likely to happen if pruning occurs during the growing season when insects which carry the diseases are active.

Winter pruning is vital to keeping your oaks and elms free of deadwood which often harbors disease transferring insects.

As you can see from the photo above, our climbing crews love hanging around in the winter. They have the skills and equipment needed to make fast, efficient work of even the largest pruning job.

Tree Care loves to make winter house calls, to:

  • Stop the spread of disease
  • Remove deadwood
  • Promote growth
  • Prevent property damage
  • Improve driver visibility
