Don’t Hug Your Trees This Winter—Prune Them!

November 7, 2017

We know you love your trees as much as we do, but come winter the best love you can show them really is by pruning them. Pruning is essential to ensuring the health and longevity of your trees, and it improves your safety too.

“Tree pruning, trimming, or cutting is an ongoing process throughout the life of your tree,” according to the Arbor Day Foundation. “Early pruning is the most important thing you can do for a young tree.”

Improve Your Trees’ Health and Longevity

When branching becomes too dense, trees lose vigor and become susceptible to insects and disease. Removing crossing and rubbing branches will result in healthier trees next spring and for years to come.

Improve Your Safety

Crowded branches often cause abnormal growth, leading to misshapen tree limbs that can break off and injure a person or cause damage to your home or property. Winter pruning helps you avoid all that and keeps you safe.
