If you have trees on your property, you know you need to have them cared for to ensure they are trimmed and pruned. This is the only way to have a tree get optimal growth and to look its best. Trees that are not cared for and not trimmed and pruned at the right time tend to limit their growth and their health. This can also lead to the tree dying off early and it will never reach its full potential. The question is when should you have your trees trimmed and is this something that can be done as a do it yourself home improvement project or should you hire a professional to do it for you. If you trim the tree at the wrong time or do it incorrectly you could be causing damage to your trees that cannot be corrected. A professional tree care company has all the answers you need; and the know how to care for your trees no matter what kind they are.
Milam’s Tree Service lists the best times to have your trees pruned and trimmed.
Caring For Your Trees In The Summer Months: The summer months are a great time to start having your trees trimmed and shaped. This is because you have just gotten through the season where the trees have had the most opportunity to grow. The spring weather allows the trees to restart growing and flourishing. The summer is when the trees are ready to have some shaping and trimming done to get the look from the tree that you want. If you have a branch that you want to slow down growth to, this is a great time to have it trimmed. If there are areas that you need to have more growth to you can reduce the amount around that area. This is also a great time to correct any areas that are damaged and need to be removed for safety purposes.
Pruning and Trimming Trees In The Winter: During the winter months the cold weather causes the trees to go into a state of dormancy. There is such a low growth state that when the spring time comes the tree will explode with growth. You still want to wait until the coldest part of the winter is past before you start to treat and care for your trees.
