In this Palo Alto Online column, George Reno from Davey's Menlo Park office shares the importance of winter pruning and some pruning tips.

You can learn a lot from your trees during the winter months that you can't during other times of the year because the natural shape of many varieties of trees is more evident without all that greenery in the way, which can provide some strong signs about their health and needs moving into the following year.
The most important thing to remember this season is that proper timing and technique are crucial for successful tree pruning.
