When is the Best Time to Prune?

For months you have been looking at branches and limbs stripped down to their bare bones in Northern Nevada.  It won’t be long now when the rich, bright tones of spring’s bloom are a wonderful welcome to the new season.  You’ll want to make sure your trees have a healthy base that’s for sure!

Knowing when to trim trees keeps them healthy in the long-term while setting them up for a season of robust growth and beauty.  Arborists are in agreement.  Sometime between the changing leaves in fall and flower blooms in spring, your trees need a trim. Anytime between late fall and early spring is best for tree trimming or pruning.

Now you know.  What you may not know is that Reno’s premier tree trimming and pruning professional is just a phone call away.  He is Greg Chavez the President of The Tree Professionals of Northern Nevada.  You see him on Google, now see him work his magic in your yard by calling (775) 420-8694.

Look up in the Sky…It’s Greg!

When was the last time that you climbed a tree on your property with a chain saw in your hand or strapped to your body?  Really?  I didn’t think so!  Who does that?  A tree professional does that and that should be it!  It must be someone with years of experience and sometimes, the courage of a high-wire walker.

The alternative is to allow trees on your land to grow wildly without trimming.  When you do that, you subject your home and possibly your family to harm.  Trees don’t announce when they are about to topple or shed branches.  Sometimes it is the weather or maybe it is age or disease that causes it to happen.

I am Greg Chavez.  My crew and I are Northern Nevada’s tree professionals.  If you are skeptical visit  Look at our photo gallery.  There I am flirting with the clouds with a chain saw in my hand!  Call me for any removal or trimming that needs to be done on your Reno area property at (775) 420-8694.

To Prune or Not to Prune…that is the Question.

With all due respect to The Bard, that is the question here.  Many landscape disappointments can be avoided if you know when to prune your trees and shrubs. Flower-producing wood might be eliminated inadvertently because of pruning too late or early. Pruning at the right time will avoid some of that disappointment.

Here is a tip…A general rule of thumb in regards to flowering plants is that they generally need three months of vegetational growth in order to set the flowers for the upcoming growing season.  For the most part, the pruning season in Northern Nevada is either behind us or ahead of us.  This is just a helpful tip for the remainder of 2018.

I know, I’ll bet a tree professional knows the answers to your pruning and tree removal questions.  Best of all, he or she also knows the proper and safe way to do it!  In that latter case we are very fortunate to have THE Tree Professional right here in Reno.  When you need trees or shrubs removed call Greg and the team immediately at (775) 420-8694.

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow.

Well, up to a point, of course.  At some point in Northern Nevada the snow creates great havoc with people and shrubbery.  Just ask the Donner party!  Seriously, we want to impart some practical tips on what snowy conditions mean for trees and shrubs in the Reno area.  You need to be prepared for the worst.

If they become damaged pruning is the option.  It is always safety first.  Have a professional inspect your tree(s) for power line contact.  A certified arborist needs to deal with the situation.  Do NOT use a ladder to try to remove excess snow from branches!  Do not leave any stubs when pruning.  The sharpest possible tools must be used.

This is a job for a tree professional.  No, this is a job for THE TREE PROFESSIONAL!  And, guess what?  He is in your back yard.  He is Greg Chavez.  Just visit and see for yourself.  When heavy snowfall hits the Reno area call the Tree Professional immediately at (775) 420-8694.
