When Is It Safe To Trim Oak Trees?

Oct 25, 2022      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 mid-October) and throughout the winter months. Oak trees should be trimmed during the winter months, ideally December through March, to avoid the spread of Oak Wilt. If an Oak tree needs to be pruned during the growing season, the pruning cuts should be painted with pruning paint.

Certified Arborists

Our professional tree services staff includes Certified Arborists with the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA), MN Certified Tree Inspectors and MN Certified Pesticide Applicators. Pioneer Tree Service prides itself on friendly service from a company who has 30 years of experience in serving the Twin Cities metro area.

Our Certified Tree Inspectors and staff Arborists are able to assess trees during their dormant states based on bark color, dried or shriveled buds, or buds/bark missing because of long term deadwood. Trimming during the cooler Fall and Winter months, the dormant season, minimizes the amount of energy that is taken from the tree and lessens the impact branch removal has on tree health.

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.
