Best Time for Tree Trimming

Working with Sarasota Tree Service Experts, you'll quickly learn that we will do whatever it takes to keep your trees healthy and beautiful all year long. Part of that care includes proper tree trimming and pruning. One question we frequently get asked is, “what time of year should I prune my trees?” Well, first of all, great question! And second of all, there can actually be many answers to this question. Fall, winter, spring, summer? What if we have happen to have a cooler winter than usual? Yes, there are variables to keep in mind, but there are also different types of pruning to consider as well.

Sometimes, it’s often a good idea to think less about the right time frame for trimming and think more about why you are pruning. As a professional tree service, we always suggest that pruning be done at least twice a year, typically once in the winter and then once during the middle of the year. In the winter, we prune to help make room for new growth. When we prune during other times, we are typically looking closely at the tree to inspect its condition since the last time we provided service. Based on what we see, we may decide to prune for health concerns—such as if it as contracted a disease—or for safety—if it has been injured during a storm. When it comes to pruning for aesthetic reasons, we try also only perform this during the winter months in order to avoid causing additional injury to the tree.

When is the Best Time to Prune Your Trees in Sarasota, FL

As we touched on, there’s so much more to trimming trees that is important outside of when exactly you perform the services. It needs to be said that regardless of when a tree is pruned, it should always been done to benefit the tree. Pruning can truly strengthen a tree and increase its longevity over time. If you grew up with old trees in your backyard, chances are someone has been maintaining them over the years so that they were able to make it to today. If you want your kids and your kids’ kids to have any opportunity to grow up with their beloved trees in the backyard, you can’t forget to give those trees the maintenance and care they deserve.
