Winter Tree Pruning – Tree Care & Tips in Massachusetts
There are some great reasons to do the heavier tree work during the winter months in suburban towns such as Weston, Wellesley, Newton, Westwood, and Dedham to name a few. These homeowners typically have beautiful landscapes with perennial beds and manicured lawns where frost in the grounds can minimize the foot traffic and equipment access impact.
The pruning can be easier because the deciduous trees have no leaves and the conifers aren’t running with sap and every cut. Plus we can see the whole structure at any time.
Tree pruning provides a variety of benefits to your trees and property. In addition to bettering their appearance, trimmed trees will be maintained and much healthier. Pruning promotes plant health by abolishing dead/dying branches that have already been injured by disease, insects, mites, animals, storms or people.
Tree Pruning can be done at any point throughout the year; however, recommended times differ depending on the species. Typically, the best time to prune most plants is during late winter. Winter months is also a dormant period – which is beneficial to trees. Fresh tree wounds will only be exposed for a brief period of time – just until the spring when new growth begins sealing these new wounds.
