Having your Trees cared for in the Winter is Good for your Trees as well as your Pockets!!
on December 5, 2011 in Helpfull Tips, Tree Care Advice

Winter is a smart time for consumers to consider having tree care operations performed on their property.  Folks often lose sight of tree care needs during the colder months.  Dead wood is harder to notice to the untrained eye, and often people’s minds aren’t as focused on plant health care during the dormant months.

The reality is that the dormant season is the best time to trim live branches from trees .  A properly trained arborist can identify dead that should be removed whether there are leaves on the tree or not.

Pruning trees is important for obvious reasons, such as eliminating dead, damaged, and diseased branches, but it’s also important in the way of minimizing structural failure due to elements such as wind or ice. Also, in our mild Charlotte climate,  the soil surrounding trees can be treated throughout most of the year.

    I agree that the dormant season is the best time to trim live branches from trees. Asking help to a tree consultant can identify dead that should be removed whether there are leaves on the tree or not.

    Great post. It’s true winter is a good time to care for trees as these are the times that the tree’s suffer the most. According to UPI.com science news Tree’s also often suffer drought in winter because the ‘xylem in the small branches at the tops of these trees can’t transport as much water as during the summer’. From this extra bit of information and from your blog post it is clear that Tree surgeons should be called on a lot more in Winter.

    Great post. I am amazed how many people don’t think they can prune their trees in the winter. It is a great time to do it, and like you said, it can be considerably less costly.
