Now is a good time for tree trimming and pruning in general. There are three main benefits for pruning (also known as tree trimming or tree cutting) your trees: personal safety, health of the tree and tree appearance. It is often recommended for personal and property safety reasons to reduce the risk of falling limbs and branches. In addition it is important to remove branches that may be resting on utility lines or near rooftops.
For the trees overall health, proper tree pruning helps stimulate new growth and the healing of wounds. It is necessary for the continued health of the tree to remove dead, weakened, diseased and insect-infested limbs. It can also encourage greater fruit production.
It improves the appearance of trees in your landscape. This is not only beneficial for the look of your property, but can also increase the overall value! Limbs too close to rooftops can encourage moss and other fungi to grow and reduce the life of the roof. They can also allow various tree climbing animals access to your roof and potentially your home.
This is also a good time of year for pruning perennial, native and tropical plants as well as container gardens. For rose care, hard pruning is also recommended.
