Is now the time to trim your trees? The answer is both yes and no.

If you have big branches overhanging your home, dead branches, or limbs that are in the power lines, now is the time to have those removed. Winter will arrive with icy problems before you know it. Safety of your home and family should always be considered first!

If your trees are in need of general pruning it’s generally best to do so in late winter or early spring.

Overall trimming and shaping of the trees will encourage growth. However, in the winter your trees are dormant, which means pruning them will not have any adverse affects.

In the spring, a trim will allow trees the whole season to recover and grow. With this said, extensive pruning in the fall can stress trees over the winter, and add potential struggles the following spring.
