When Is It Safe To Trim Oak Trees?

Oct 11, 2019      Share:  

It is safest to trim oak trees during the colder fall and winter months.

Oak trees are sensitive to trimming during the warmer months of the year, and trimming your oak trees during the summer can unnecessarily put your oak trees at risk for disease.

The best time to trim oak trees is in the colder fall and winter months.

At Pioneer Tree Service we are now scheduling Oak tree trimming (starting in October) and throughout the winter months. It is a best practice to trim and prune elm trees during this time of year as well.

Oak Wilt

Oak wilt is less likely to spread in the winter month, so have your oak trees trimmed at this time of the year will not expose your oak trees to oak wilt being transmitted through the fresh cuts in the tree. Waiting until after the first hard frost of the fall can help to minimize the risk of disease spreading to your oak trees.
