Winter Pruning Advice from Wauson Tree Service

Tuesday, November 30, 2010 @ 04:11 PM  posted by admin

Well, it’s that time of the year again when the leaves have dropped from the trees and the winter storms are gearing up to move in. And winter is a great time to prune trees and clear the deadwood from the property to insure its safety. The winds of winter and snow can rest heavy on a tree’s limbs and cause a branch to snap when least expected. And this can spell danger for your property or its inhabitants.

Pruning is something anyone can accomplish. Good pruning takes experience and knowledge. It takes knowing whether the tree needs to be merely pruned or removed because of damage to the unseen eye. If there are damaged trees close to electrical lines, there may be a need to communicate directly with your local utility company. A professional service can work with the necessary people, and have your services restored the same day if utility services have been interrupted due to tree obstruction.

About the Trees on Your Property

You may have one or several type of trees on your property including conifers, maples, oaks, birches or hickories. Each species has its own way of dealing with winter temperatures. Conifers are graced with the ability to ignore snow, icy conditions and harsh freezing weather. On the other hands, maples, oaks, hickories, and such, have broader leaves that can be severely damaged by the ravishes of repeated freezing and thawing.

Roses, trees, shrubs along with other plants are all candidates for pruning the year round. While winter is a perfect time for pruning in the garden or yard, there should always be a good reason to prune. Plants such as roses, raspberries, clematis, lilacs, and others all have pruning needs along with the best way of pruning them.
