Twin Cities Winter Tree Trimming

To avoid disease and other problems, it’s important that trees be trimmed or pruned at the proper time of year. The dormant season is in late winter, making it the best time to trim most trees for optimal tree health. Although pruning exposes fresh wounds, it’s only a short time before new growth begins, and it’s easier to see what should be trimmed without a full leaf cover.

When Should I Trim and Prune My Trees?

Oak trees should not be trimmed between April and October to avoid the spread of oak wilt disease. If an oak tree is wounded or pruned during this time, wound dressing or latex paint should be applied to mask the odor of freshly cut wood, which attracts the beetles that spread oak wilt disease.

Apple trees, flowering crabapple trees, Mountain Ash, and Hawthorns should also be pruned in late winter to avoid the infection and spread of fireblight, a bacterial disease, as well as drying and die-back.
