If you’ve read some of our previous blogs then you already know how essential trimming and pruning are to maintain the health and beauty of your trees. That’s why the ISA-certified arborist at Westcoast Tree Care would like to share some additional reasons why winter is the best time of year for these services. We’ve been providing quality, dependable Vancouver tree trimming, pruning, view enhancement, windsail reduction, and tree removal services for many years. All of our preventative tree care services are fully licensed and insured.
Bare Trees Are Easier To Trim & Prune
Many Vancouver homeowners who attempt to trim or prune their trees typically do so during the warm spring months when they are outside enjoying the weather. However, if you’ve done this before, then you are likely familiar with the frustration of heavy foliage as you wrestle through your tree, looking for the right places to trim. During the winter months, trees lose their leaves, making it easier to trim and prune branches. If you hire a certified arborist to get the job done, it can cost you more in the summer than in the winter because it will take them longer when your trees are covered in leaves.
Maximize A Tree’s Growth
Trees become dormant during the cold winter months, making the trimming and pruning process more effective. Getting the job done this time of year also saves a tree the precious energy it needs to grow during the spring. When you trim or prune your trees during the winter, it causes less trauma to a tree and gives it plenty of time to heal before the growing season.
Protect Against Pests & Disease
When you trim and prune your trees during the warm spring and summer months, the wounds left behind are prone to disease and insect infestation, which can cause irreparable damage. However, during the winter, these pests and diseases are either dead or dormant, allowing your tree to fully heal and start a healthy growth cycle in the spring.
