The dormant winter season is an ideal time for tree pruning for the following reasons:
Disease Management– Fresh pruning cuts are less likely to attract disease carrying insects and spread bacteria or fungi.
Wind/Storm Preparation– Weak and damaged limbs should be removed at this time to make the tree strong enough to withstand severe winter weather and winds.
Reduce Stress – Winter pruning causes the tree less stress and promotes healthy new growth in the Spring.
Opens up the Canopy – Grass and plants below the tree will benefit from pruning at this time as an open canopy allows more sunlight through below.
Precision Pruning – Leafless structures are easier to see, providing excellent access for precision pruning to be carried out.
