One of the most important times during the year to trim back your trees is the fall season, and outlined below are just a few reasons why this maintenance is critical:
- The gusty winds associated with the months of October and November accompanied by the potential for freezes later in the year can cause dead tree branches to fall on houses, cars, or worse.
- Keeping your trees pruned can help to prevent disease and improve the overall appearance of the tree. It can also help to encourage healthy growth of the tree.
- Trimming back limbs and dead branches can help increase the amount of natural light that the tree gets, therefore increasing the tree’s livelihood.
