Winter Ash Tree Pruning Andover, MN

Jan 24, 2018      Share:  

Pruning the trees correctly at your Andover home or business will promote healthy growth for your trees, and will also protect your property from the potential of dead or diseased branches falling onto your house or garage by pruning before they fall.

The best time to prune trees such as ash trees, oak trees and elm trees is late in the dormant time of year for the tree (later in the winter and before spring growth begins). During this time, the spread of disease will be reduced because the wounds creating by pruning will be exposed for a minimal amount of time. This time of year also allows for the arborists with Pioneer Tree & Landscaping, Inc. to see the branches clearly because they are not obscured by leaves on the branches.
