Winter doesn’t mean that tree care stops. Winter is an excellent time to prune your trees because not only are the branches easier to see, but it can save you a lot of time, money, and worry should an ice storm hit.

Pruning should be done whenever the tree experiences damage, limbs are close to the home or power lines, and branches are dead or dying.

Always have a professional, ISA certified arborist prune your trees! They have the experience and knowledge to prune trees correctly, and the insurance needed to protect themselves and you!
