In this Palo Alto Weekly article, Leonardo Rivera, district manager of Davey's Menlo Park office, discusses the importance and timing of dormant pruning of trees ahead of the winter months.

The Midpeninsula's temperate weather serves as an ideal climate for all kinds of trees, natives and non-natives alike. But even in this moderate climate, temperatures do turn chillier in fall and winter, and when they do, that's the best time to take care of some routine maintenance to help trees stay healthy.

Deva Luna, a horticulturist and designer for Earthcare Landscaping, is teaching a pruning and propagating class for the city of Palo Alto on Nov. 23 offered through the Bay Area Water Supply and Conservation Agency. She will offer tips and tricks on how to properly maintain trees and how to make new plants from old (called propagation). In addition to helping homeowners learn how do it themselves, Luna also will talk about hiring an arborist and share with people how to tell if the arborist is doing a good job.
