Tree Trimming In Summer
You’ll hear conflicting information about trimming trees in summer. Some may say that you should really only trim a tree while it is dormant. So really, late fall, winter or early spring. In general this is true, but what about circumstances that require more immediate attention? Dead wood, damaged wood or diseased limbs should be trimmed and removed when you see them. If that is in the summer, that is okay. In the event a summer tree trim is needed, make sure you don’t trim more than 25% of the green limbs at one time.
Tree Planting in Summer
Trees can withstand the summer heat with proper watering and can be planted in the summer months. The only time you should refrain from planting a tree is when the ground is frozen. That doesn’t happen too often in Southlake, but good to keep in mind in case you get a wild hair to plant trees during an ice storm. Once your tree is planted, you can begin to enjoy it immediately, so don’t let the summer heat prevent you from adding a tree to your landscape.
