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.

    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 is performed by a Davey ISA Certified Arborist.

  • A beautiful, healthy lawn starts with the roots. Your local South Minneapolis lawn care professionals provide core aeration and overseeding services to rejuvenate and heal your lawn from excessive drought and foot traffic.

    What is Core Aeration?

    Core aeration is a process of using a specialized aeration machine with small hollow tines to remove “cores” of soil to help air, water, and fertilizer penetrate deep into the soil. It also helps control thatch in your yard, which prevents nutrients from reaching your soil and roots.

    Benefits of Core Aeration:

    • Reduce soil compaction
    • Enhance soil water absorption
    • Improve fertilizer intake
    • Breaks down thatch
    • Reduce heat and drought stress

    Call 763.515.2403 to learn more about our lawn aeration services.

  • Controlling grubs before they damage your lawn requires proactive, routine inspections of the turf and soil.

  • After a violent storm in Minneapolis, I left a message on our arborist's cell late that evening. We had our proposal within two days and two Davey crews out to our home in three days to clean up the property. We were all "cleaned up" before many of our neighbors had even heard back from their arborists!

    M. Gibbons Golden Valley, MN

    All of these men are most polite and did a great job on our trees. Tyler was knowledgeable and explained to the team of Pete, Jon, and Keith who efficiently did the job. All cleaned up so well. We are very pleased.
