No Tree Foliage
Once the leaves fall from a tree, it’s easy to locate damaged or diseased limbs. This makes it easy for the certified arborist at Westcoast Tree Care to identify damaged, diseased, or dying limbs. With the ability to view a tree’s natural architecture, we can also trim for visual appeal.

Support Healthy Growth
Trimming a tree during its dormant state will reduce stress and facilitate healthy growth in the spring. In turn, this will help to preserve its natural beauty and boost structural integrity during the cold months in Northern Idaho.
Pruning is essential for tree growth. However, it can also make it more susceptible to disease, especially when insects and fungi are present during the warm summer season. Winter pruning, however, means there are no bugs or diseases to invade open wounds.
Less Damage & Cleanup
Excessive foliage can complicate the pruning and trimming process while increasing the time and cost for preparation and cleanup. Pruning during the fall and winter months equals less damage and cleanup.
Minimize Snow & Ice Damage
Northern Idaho snow and ice storms can be wicked. Everyone knows that trees weighted down by snow and ice are prone to breakage, creating a hassle for Spokane homeowners and potentially damaging their property. This is especially true when it comes to damaged, diseased, or dying limbs.
