It is not a question of if, but rather of when. Is it prudent to trim trees in Northern Nevada in the middle of winter? Here is a short answer. Pruning deciduous plants in the winter promotes fast regrowth in the spring, as most of the plants around here are dormant during the winter. Let’s start with that.
Now, the subject of exactly when and how –
1. Pick a mild, dry day to prune
2. Start with the dead and diseased branches
3. Then remove the overgrown and diseased branches
4. Hire a professional
As to that last point you can use the theory “what is in a name”. The Tree Professionals at thetreeprofessional.com sounds like a good place to begin and conclude your search. Call Greg and the excellent tree pruning bunch at The Tree Professionals. They know the why’s, when’s, and how’s of Reno area tree trimming. Just call (775) 420-8694.
