Clients are sometimes surprised that Willow Tree Services still performs tree service in the winter – And they’re even more surprised when our arborists say that winter is the best time for many tree services.
Here are a few reasons why:
Winter pruning reduces stress and insect damage
Winter is the best time to remove live limbs, particularly large limbs or sections of a tree because the tree is dormant and not focused on putting on new growth. In addition, the cold weather means insects won’t be attracted to fresh pruning cuts.
Frozen, hard ground allows access to difficult to reach areas
For pruning or tree removal jobs where we need to drive onto lawns that are often wet, winter is sometimes the only time of year where the ground conditions allow us to access the tree. For this reason, many of our golf courses, homeowner associations, and residential clients will save some of their larger tree removal projects for winter when we can best access the trees.
Landscape plants are dormant, minimizing or eliminating damage to nearby plants during the work
Many of our clients have beautiful landscaping beneath their trees. Performing the tree work when these plants are dormant allows us to keep their landscapes looking pristine.
Winter tree work rates are lower
Due to the reduced demand for tree work in the winter, we discount our standard rates which means the best prices of the year for our clients.
