Pruning is best done in the winter, for the same reasons that planting should be done in the winter. The trees are dormant and are more likely to survive the stress of cuts and trauma to their structure. Pruning is an important part of responsible urban tree maintenance and it is something that all good homeowners in Atlanta eventually have to do. Call Boutte Tree, Inc. for a free estimate on the best way to approach your patch of the urban canopy. If you plan ahead and think smart, you can probably only prune once every 3-5 years. Beautifully pruned trees make such a difference in the beauty of your yard and outdoor living spaces!
