Winter Pruning For Trees
Winter is an excellent time to prune deciduous trees. Trees need pruning for a variety of reasons. Young trees need training to produce a structure that will be strong and beautiful for years to come. Mature trees may need to be thinned or branches removed.
Cut off crossing branches and those that are clustered too closely. Avoid having branches rub against each other and places for water and debris to collect. These areas become susceptible to damage and disease and will have an unsightly structure.
