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.

  • Tree cabling and bracing is a proactive and preventative technique to support a tree with poor or weak structure.

    It is commonly used to reduce stress damage on your tree from:

    • High winds
    • Weight of ice or snow
    • Heavy foliage

    By installing cables, you are strengthening weak tree branches or limbs to better withstand severe weather and to improve the longevity of your trees. All tree cabling and bracing are performed by a Davey ISA Certified Arborist.
