Commercial tree pruning can help save you time and money because its healthier for your trees and provides a better image of your property. 

6 Facts About Commercial Landscape Management & Tree Care

Fall and Winter is a great time for commercial tree care on your property because it’s healthier for your trees and hoa landscaping.

1. Trees are better pruned in the cooler months

2. The moderate temperatures are more suitable for extensive tree pruning

3. Infectious disease and insects are less prevalent in the fall and winter

4. Tree pruning in the colder season is less impactful on surrounding landscaping

5. During the summer months, trees expend a great deal of their stored energy in order to manufacture new foliage, fruit and flowers.

6. Tree care can be less expensive if planned correctly

Why Timing is Crucial for Your Commercial Tree Care

When the weather is favorable, trees are flowing with nutrients and water during their peak growing season and exert a tremendous amount of energy producing new foliage, buds and flowers. The removal of large tree limbs should be done in the winter months when the tree is dormant and less active; the weather contributes a vital role in the health and recovery of a tree & should dictate the appropriate timing for tree care operations. Also keep in mind that extensive pruning during the drought when the tree is in a state of decline or stress can cause further damage eventually killing a tree, that is why it’s essential to perform heavy tree pruning in the dormant months of the year.

Limit Your Plant Replacements

A well managed commercial grounds maintenance service understands that heavy tree pruning during the active growing season can promote and cause the development of infection or bacteria in the fresh tree wounds, but are not as likely to develop during the dormant season. Care should be taken when pruning, the adjacent under story landscaping and surrounding plants may include expensive evergreen plants & perennial flowers that are easily damaged with falling tree branches. Winter months during peak dormancy help plants recover when damage occurs.

Favorable Pricing For Property Management Budgets

From a budgeting perspective, a commercial landscape contractor can provide favorable pricing & expedited service when scheduling your tree care in the winter months.
