FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: When is a good time to prune?
A: Light pruning to remove a few small branches of trees can be done at any time of year. More extensive pruning should be done in late winter to early spring. There are three advantages to pruning at this time of the year. First, wound closure is most rapid if it’s done just prior to when new shoots emerge. Second, there are few insects and disease spores to infest pruning cuts. Third, deciduous trees have dropped their leaves, so it’s easier to see what you’re pruning!
Trees such as elm, maple, walnut and birch are “bleeders” when pruned in late winter to early spring. This oozing sap is annoying when it drips on cars and sidewalks. There is disagreement as to whether the oozing is harmful to trees. It is thought that oozing might interfere with the closure of pruning cuts. Oozing is reduced if these tree species are pruned in the fall. However, fall is probably the least desirable time of year to prune most trees. Pruning cuts close more slowly in the fall than in any of the other seasons.
Q: Why prune?
A: Proper pruning helps establish and maintain healthier, stronger, safer, and more aesthetically pleasing trees. It is also one of the wisest, long-term investments you can make in your property. There are many reasons to prune trees:
IMPROVE HEALTH Deadwood is the prime breeding ground for decay, disease, and insect problems. Removing deadwood is an important pruning objective.
IMPROVE STRUCTURE Poorly attached and weak or broken branches are very common, more so in certain species of trees. Proper understanding of branch attachment is essential when deciding which branches to remove.
