Fall Prep

As the long, hot summer gradually gives way to cooler days and shorter daylight hours, it’s the perfect time to explore the art of tree pruning. In this comprehensive video, ISA Certified Arborists Wes Rivers and Cory Herpel talk about your fall prep by debunking the myth that pruning should be restricted to a specific season. The truth is, there’s never a bad time to do good pruning, and we reveal the secrets to achieving excellent results throughout the year.

Join our expert arborists as they explain the numerous benefits of fall pruning. By this time, the growth rate of trees naturally slows down, allowing for a more sustainable shaping and cleaning process. Trimming during this period leads to longer-lasting results, as the dormant trees won’t sprout back immediately after the pruning is complete, unlike when pruning in spring.

Evergreen species, such as live oaks, demand special attention during the fall months. With ice storms looming in January and February, certain branches tend to overextend, causing potential damage during harsh weather conditions. By undertaking proper pruning in autumn or early winter, we can effectively reduce overextension and safeguard the trees from added stress during winter storms.

Moreover, fall pruning presents an excellent opportunity to combat specific diseases that might afflict our trees. Addressing potential diseases in autumn ensures that we tackle the problem before it escalates with the arrival of spring, preventing further spread and protecting the overall health of our garden.

Our team emphasizes responsible and informed tree care, highlighting the significance of pruning during fall as a strategic approach to fostering healthy, resilient trees year-round.
