We recommend trimming and/or pruning of your trees at least once every three years. If you have dead or decaying branches, we recommend removing them as soon as possible, regardless of the season. Decaying branches have the potential to infect the rest of the tree, leading to weakened resistant to insects and fungi.

Pruning needs to be done at certain times of the year to avoid damage to the trees and to achieve the results you’re looking for. Never have your trees pruned in the fall. Doing so puts your trees at risk of infection from fungi or infestation by insects attracted to the newly cut wood. Pruning should only be done during the late winter/early spring. In some cases, pruning/trimming can also be done during the summer, especially if you are trying to control the size and shape of the tree.
Although the terms are often used interchangeably, pruning and trimming are two slightly different things. Pruning refers to the selective cutting of certain branches in order to help the tree maintain a healthy balance and to increase its crop yield, if it is a fruit tree. Trimming, on the other hand, helps shape the tree to your desired size and configuration. Trimming also helps removing excesses branches and foliage, allowing the sunlight to penetrate and the tree to receive the moisture it needs from precipitation.
Trimming trees helps increase air circulation throughout the tree and around the underlying landscape. This process needs to be done with care to prevent sun scald, a condition that affects leafless trees during the winter months.
If you have fruit trees, pruning can help improve the size and the quantity of your final crop. Fruit trees should only be pruned during late winter to help improve the shape and to expose the center of the tree to growth-stimulating sunlight. For newly-planted trees, trimming should be done by a professional to compensate for the reduction in the root system and to begin training the tree for the desired shape. Ornamental trees should only be pruned in early spring. That way, they have a fresh start when blooming season comes around.
We will never recommend pruning in the autumn. During this time, fungi is most active and will spread very quickly to the inner parts of a tree that has been freshly cut. If your trees are already stressed from a dry season or other damage, fungi and invasive insects could kill it.
We also offer services for the removal or grinding of stumps after a tree has been felled or fallen by other means. If you are looking for affordable tree service companies, consider using our local tree service company in Hickory. We look forward to working with you!
