Why Prune Trees in Winter?

Why Prune Trees in Winter?

Winter is an excellent time to have your trees inspected and pruned.

Our certified arborists can clearly detect structural issues when your trees are in a dormant state, without the obstruction of leaves. For certain areas, frozen ground also allows equipment access which may not be available in warmer weather.
