Seasonal Tree Trimming

  • Tree dormancy is a phrase often used while discussing landscaping, but what exactly does it mean?

    The dormant season usually arrives in your region within the early winter weeks.

    Trees enter the dormant or “resting” season based on a decrease in temperature and daylight received. These are the two primary factors that determine when and why a tree will rest for the winter.

    Why is the dormant season a good time to perform tree maintenance?

    Fall and winter are great times to perform tree maintenance for a number of reasons:

    • Drier grounds and bare branches allow arborists to access and inspect your trees with ease.
    • Helps decrease the likeliness of disease to spread and harm the tree’s structure.
    • Promotes tree viability when the ground thaws and the sun shines again.

    Understanding dormant season and its effects on your trees may help you better monitor their health, learn more

  • The best time to trim (prune) trees are anytime between late fall and early spring.

    In fall and winter, trees enter a dormant stage, halting their growth. This inactivity along with dropping temperatures creates an ideal setting for pruning.

    If you prune after new growth has started, you can limit the plant’s bloom potential for the year.

    Here are additional benefits for trimming trees in fall or winter.

    Contact a local Davey arborist to schedule your tree trimming appointment.

    Lightning Protection for Trees

    We use heavy gauge copper cables to divert damaging lightning safely away from your tree into a buried ground rod.

    Our tree protection system also includes a fuse that monitors the tree. So, when lightning strikes, we will be alerted if the tree was hit.

    Tree Cabling & Bracing

    We use flexible steel strand cables and braces to reduce stress damage on your tree from severe weather. By installing cables, you are strengthening weak tree branches or limbs.

  • Proper mulch installation is important to a healthy, thriving landscape. It can help conserve moisture, suppress weeds and moderate soil temperature.

    When mulch is too high and sits too close to a tree’s trunk, it can cause damage to your tree.

  • Didn’t even realize they had been here - did such a great job cleaning up. No signs of work having been done and no debris left behind. Trees look perfect.

    Steve M. Doylestown, PA

    Steven (Davey's Representative) was very thorough discussing what he would be doing on our property. Was cautious working around existing plantings while treating infected hemlocks.

    Linda C. Vernaci. Doylestown, PA

    Chris was great with his estimate, and the workers were just as great with getting the job done. All were very courteous!

    Debra Balcas. Doylestown, PA

    Best looking yard in the neighborhood!

    Andrya Nelson. Lansdale, PA

    As I wrote in my Yelp review: "I needed the tree in front of my house in Center City (Philly) trimmed, as it was growing against the house (and the City confirmed that it needed trimming and said they expected it to be done in 3 years, but it was on the list!) -- as well as two trees in the alley in back of my house. I contacted three tree services. Davey was the only one that responded and it did so quickly. The price was reasonable, the service very professional and clear, and I couldn't be more pleased. A well-known name in the business, for a reason! "
