Winter Is The Best Time For Tree Service

January 21st, 2021 Tree Health,Tree Service

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.

What They're Saying

We had a super tall (maybe 80-100 foot tall) and super wide oak tree (choked with English ivy) removed, along with a few other smaller trees to open up our backyard. You cannot tell there was anything ever in the yard after the tree was removed and stump ground and leveled by Willow. Ed is a great arborist and gave us a very fair price, though they weren’t the cheapest bid we had, and the estimate was the final cost. No surprises! The team was professional and worked safely and quickly. Definitely recommend!
