Winter Tree Services with Quality Tree Services

During the long cold winter months, many of our clients forget about their trees. This is a big mistake commonly made by homeowners. The correct timing of pruning can be very important for specific species of trees and for some the correct time is during the dormant season.

Winter dormant pruning is done shortly before spring growth. Doing so leaves fresh wounds exposed for a short period of time before the wound healing process begins.

Advantages of Winter Dormant Pruning

  • For some species pruning during the dormant season is the best time for the tree.
  • Thinning the canopy and removing dead wood reduces storm damage potential.
  • Deciduous plants are leaf free, allowing for more accurate pruning and reduced cleanup times.
  • Insects and disease spores are inactive during the winter, reducing the chance for infestation.
  • Rejuvenation and clearance pruning can he performed with minimal risk of promoting sucker growth.

Emergency tree services can also be much needed during the winter. Heavy snow, ice and damaging winds can cause devastating effects on trees. Winter dormant pruning can help reduce these risks. Unsure if your tree’s are at risk this winter?? 

The Benefits of Evergreen Trees

There are a variety of trees and shrubs that fall into the Evergreen family, which hold their leaves throughout all the seasons. Conifers (Hemlock, Blue Spruce, Red Cedar, and White Pine) and Holly are the most popular types of Evergreen found in Michigan. The winter months here in Michigan, give these beautiful trees the opportunity to take the spotlight in our landscapes.
