Russell Tree Experts offers winter tree care services such as pruning, removal, and more. In some cases, pruning trees in winter is actually more beneficial than during other times of the year due to increased canopy visibility and lower risk of disease. Certain trees are more vulnerable to pathogens that are more active during the growing season. For example, during the winter months, the insects that carry oak wilt and dutch elm disease are not present and the pathogen in the environment that causes fire blight is not active. For this reason, oak trees, elm trees, and trees in the rosaceae family such as apple, pear, and serviceberry, are best pruned during this time.
From another perspective, frozen ground conditions allow the use of heavier equipment, thus increasing efficiency, potentially reducing costs, and minimizing concerns of turf impact on your property, especially during tree removals.
