Winter Pruning-Dormant Season

The dormant season during the winter months is a great time to prune your trees. With no leaves on deciduous trees to obstruct the view, our arborists are better able to check for problems.  Crews can also remove low hanging or intrusive branches without damaging annual/perennial planting beds.

More importantly, dormant pruning is preventive health care for your trees.  It can improve tree structure and helps to protect you and your property from safety concerns.  The dormant season (late Fall and Winter) is also the only time Oaks and Elms can be pruned due to the possibility of transmission of Oak Wilt and Dutch Elm disease in the other seasons.

Our Certified Arborists are experts in pruning for tree health and beauty.  Call our office at 262-538-1900 (or reply to this email) to schedule pruning for the coming months.
