Healthy trees play an important role in our health, the health of the environment, and the beauty of our communities. To maintain their beauty, strength, and health trees must be properly cared for on a regular basis – this includes pruning. As the seasons change, the needs and requirements for your tree maintenance will also change. Now that the Fall season is in full force, read on to find out if now is the ideal time for tree pruning.
Minimizing and Managing Disease
Because trees are living things, they are susceptible to disease. When pruning trees in the Spring and summer, you can actually increase the tree’s exposure to certain types of diseases because of the warmer weather. When pruning in the Fall, the coolness in the air will limit the tree’s susceptibility to diseases. The Fall season is also the perfect time to check for any existing diseases because it has already lost its leaves for the season and is bare.
When you choose to prune your trees in the Fall you’re creating a great foundation for extended healthy when Spring comes back around. Pruning bare trees helps create improved tree branching patterns which promotes enhanced growth. Plus, Fall pruning makes it easier to remove damaged and week branches, which makes the tree safer for the upcoming snow and excess moisture of winter. The pruned trees will have a better chance at storing necessary nutrients for the upcoming Spring season.
Save Time and Money
Because you can create more precise cuts in the Fall, you’ll be saving yourself some time and money. The branches are dormant trees are easier to work with, making the process much more efficient. In addition, if you work with a professional tree pruning service, they’ll have the equipment and expertise to get the job done quickly and properly the first time. Greater efficiency and speed equate to more savings in time and money for you.
