Tree Pruning Tips

Trees Should Only Be Prune When Dormant

If your tree care professional is urging you to trim your trees during the dormant season they might not know what they are doing. The dormant season is the time in your tree’s life cycle when it isn’t growing new seedlings. You’ll notice fewer if any, leaves and green twigs springing from your tree during this time.


Keep Lateral Branches Evenly Spaced when Thinning the Crown

Pruning your trees is particularly dangerous, which is why we recommend keeping lateral branches spaced out as evenly as possible. You’ll also want to remove branches that cross over other branches or run right next to them.


Watch How Much of the Crown You Remove

No more than one-fourth of your crown should be removed at the same time. Should you want to remove more than that, space it out over a number of years to protect the health of your tree.


Start at the Top and Work Your Way Down

When you perform our tree pruning in Disley, we pay close attention to the top of the tree and then work our way down the crown. This prevents issues with the quality of the aesthetics and reduces the risk of a bad looking prune.
