When is the best time to prune a tree?

Generally speaking, the best time to prune a tree is in the winter when the tree is dormant and there are no leaves on the tree. This makes it easier to see the structure of the tree and the tree will suffer less shock when pruning off excess branches.


Benefits of having your tree pruned

Trees that are regularly pruned by a professional tree surgeon tend to be healthier and are safer to have around your home or business.

This is because after the pruning takes place, we can inspect the tree for any damage and there is room for new growth to come through in the upcoming spring months.

Healthier Trees

Having your trees tended to by one of our professional tree surgeons helps promote your tree growth by eliminating any branches that may be rubbing against each other and hindering new growth from coming through.

Once the tree has been cleared of any excess branches, our tree surgeons can inspect the tree’s trunk, branches, and joints for any damage such as splits, cracks, disease, and rot.


Removing Hazards

Keeping your home or business safe is absolutely essential. By removing excess branches and inspecting trees for cracks and splits, we can reduce the potential of branches falling or causing any disruption on powerlines or your home.


Can I prune a tree myself?

If you are a keen gardener, pruning small fruit trees may not be that difficult. However, if pruning a tree is not done correctly, you can cause long term damage to the tree and cause it to die or go into decline. There are multiple techniques used by professionals that are safe for the tree and promote new growth in the future.

It is also worth noting that when working on trees that are much larger, it is recommended that you get a professional tree surgeon who is used to working at heights safely.
