Coon Rapids Winter Tree Trimming

Feb 21, 2018      Share:   

Winter is the proper time to prune trees such as Oak Trees, Ash Trees and Elm Trees. Winter tree pruning will limit the spread of common tree diseases because the wounds creating by pruning will be exposed for a minimal amount of time before the tree starts to heal in the spring.

The winter season for pruning for oak, ash and elm trees ends around April 1st.

The certified arborists at Pioneer Tree & Landscape, Inc. are currently taking appointments for winter tree trimming in the Coon Rapids, Blaine, Anoka and Andover area. Winter pruning generally ends around April 1st, so make sure to get your appointment made soon before the winter season ends. Pruning dead or damaged branches now will promote healthy growth of your trees.

The University of Minnesota's web site has great information on pruning large established trees and the pros of pruning these trees during the winter months (see https://www.extension.umn.edu/garden/yard-garden/trees-shrubs/pruning-trees-shrubs/). Michigan State University also recommends "Protecting oaks from wilt disease starts with restricting times trees are pruned to the cold weather season."

Make your appointment today by calling (763) 238-5254 or by filling out the appointment form on this page.
