Consult an arborist about the best time to prune the trees in your yard. You must choose a time when the tree is not stressed or pruning will add additional stress and potentially hazardous conditions.
Trees can be pruned year round; however, symptoms of tree stress that would prevent tree pruning include drought, over-watering, disease and storm damage.
Tree pruning can be a do-it-yourself project if you don’t have a fear of heights. If hanging from a tree just isn’t your thing, contact the professionals.
