Fall and Winter Pruning and Tree Trimming in Denver Preparation

October 19, 2017

While pruning is important and beneficial, it is important to know when and how much to prune throughout the year. As you mulch and make your final landscaping arrangements for the year, you need to know when to prune and how much. Learn the benefits of pruning, tips and tree trimming in Denver tips and additional fall care tips to make sure are on your agenda before winter.

Why and When to Prune

Pruning is essential to the vitality of trees or shrubs. Through this process of cutting off damaged or dying stems or branches, you eliminate the risk of disease and other issues from infiltrating the entire tree. By keeping these parts of the plants removed, the overall health of the plant will be well and you can maintain your investment. Some perennials and other plants struggle with winter and can be prepared by fall pruning. Based upon where trees & shrubs do the majority of their storage, fall and winter prunings will stimulate spring growth.

Pruning and Trimming Tips

Your goal will be to cut off any dead or dying branches, as well as anything that is overgrown. As you prune branches, you want to keep any areas that have leaves off them, and should make cuts at a very slight slant with some space from your cut and the leaf. It is also want to make sure that you are not pruning into the branch collar, the area where the base of a branch joins/connects to another branch or the trunk. When pruning, in addition to cutting dead branches, you can also remove branches from the bottom of the tree or shrub to accommodate your landscaping. You can also thin out your trees and shrubs to help with airflow. For larger jobs with your trees, don’t hesitate to contact an expert for a large task.
