With winter rapidly approaching, you can expect most of your trees to enter a sort of hibernation mode soon. During the period of dormancy, plants will temporarily halt all growth and development so they can preserve energy. If you want your plants to experience a new burst of life come springtime, it’s wise to take out your shears, loppers, and other tree pruning equipment near winter’s end. 

When Do You Need Your Tree Pruning Equipment?

Dead, Diseased, & Damaged Branches

Any dead, damaged, or diseased branches may negatively impact the healthy parts of the tree. To prevent further detrimental effects, always prune problem areas as soon as possible. Trees like maple and dogwood may bleed sap, but don’t be alarmed. Pruning will not harm them. Just do not leave flush cuts or stubs, as these can damage your tree.

Late Winter

You should always prune your trees during late winter, but you may also wish to do so them during early spring, or anytime just before the tree opens its buds. Near the end of this winter, plan to prune on a dry and mild day. Start by removing dead and damaged branches, then slowly move to overgrown and smaller ones. This will boost light exposure at the crown, where it needs it most.
