Tree Pruning in Winter

Dec 28, 2021      Share:  

Pruning ash trees, oak trees and elm trees in winter when they are dormant can help to promote healthy tree growth and the wounds caused by pruning are minimally exposed before new growth begins the wound sealing process. The certified arborists at Pioneer Tree Service can help to improve the health of your trees through proper pruning, ensuring your healthy trees will provide shade and cover for decades to come.

We recommend that any limb removal for ash trees, oak trees and elm trees should be done before April 1st.

Promote Optimal Tree Health With Winter Pruning

The University of Minnesota recommends late winter tree pruning, especially for Oak, Ash and Elm Trees (visit for more information). From the Univ. of Minnesota:

"The late dormant season is best for most pruning. Pruning in late winter, just before spring growth starts, leaves fresh wounds exposed for only a short length of time before new growth begins the wound sealing process. Another advantage of dormant pruning is that it's easier to make pruning decisions without leaves obscuring plant branch structure. Pruning at the proper time can avoid certain disease and physiological problems..."
