Fall Tree Trimming is a tricky situation. In the Dallas area, including Southlake and Grapevine, the weather may stay fairly warm well in to the fall. Typically in the Fall a tree stops growing, it begins to shed leaves and prepare for winter.
Tree trimming in the Fall can be dangerous since trees have stopped their growing process. Cutting a tree during this season could cause open wounds in the tree that do not have time to close up before the winter and heal properly.
Just because tree trimming isn’t a great idea in the Fall doesn’t mean there aren’t other things you should do for your overall tree health during the Fall. Do continue to water your trees and other plants.
Sometimes you may need to remove a tree. Tree removal can be completed at any time of the year.
The best time to prune a tree is in the Spring. This is a time when trees begin to grow and blossom again and have the ability to heal from the pruning process. Ideally, prune trees in dry weather. If it is damp out, bacteria could grow and cause damage to the tree. Make sure to cut as close as possible when pruning to the body of the tree.
Pruning can be a very specific process that is best accomplished by a certified arborist. Pruning the wrong section of the tree or pruning incorrectly can cause serious damage to your tree. Replacing a mature tree can be expensive and obviously, it would take time for a younger tree to grow back to the size of the mature tree. So, be careful when pruning and we recommend you hire an aborist to perform this work for you.
