It could be a challenge for a typical homeowner to realize if a tree is in dire need of a good trim. One of the easiest ways to tell when the tree requires trimming is its appearance, but aside from that, finding out whether pruning is necessary could be difficult. The good news is, trimming and pruning go beyond the aesthetic advantages but also improves the entire welfare of the tree. So, there is more than enough reason why your tree should be trimmed.

When to Trim Trees: Summer vs. Winter
Winter Tree Trimming
You might have heard before that trimming is best done during the winter, and it is for a good reason. Trimming a tree in its dormant state improves new growth come spring. This can result in a fuller, better-looking tree in the years to come. It is commended to plan pruning after the coldest part of winter has passed.
Summer Tree Trimming
Trimming in summer is not a very popular practice, but it is ideal if you want to stunt the growth of a tree. A tree's roots will be stronger if trimmed in summer because more food is produced in the leaves that are sent directly to its roots. This is also a good time to prune limbs that are damaged due to dense foliage which can be hard to see during winter.
Make sure to know the proper way to trim or prune a tree before performing it to ensure the health of your tree. If not done correctly, trimming can cause significant and irreversible damage to your tree. If you have any concerns, please call Century Trees for a free tree trimming estimate.
