HOA tree pruning is neccessary for a well kept property, it can especially help you if you plan well in advance. Please read on for our 6 Planning Strategies. 


6 Facts About Commercial Landscaping & Tree Care

Summer time is a great time to start planning for commercial tree care on your property because it’s best to plan ahead for your trees in hoa and commercial landscaping.

1. Trees are better pruned in the cooler months, with some light pruning in the summer

2. Stable temperatures are more suitable for extensive tree pruning

3. Infectious disease and insects are less prevalent if performed at the right time

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

5. During the hotter months, trees expend a great deal of their stored energy in order to manufacture new foliage, fruit and flowers, so its important to selectively prune your trees.

6. Tree care can be less expensive if planned correctly


Why Timing is Crucial for Your Homeowners Association Landscaping

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

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 Commercial Landscaping Budgets

From a budgeting perspective, get your pricing in the summer months to lock in favorable pricing & expedite your tree service in the winter months. We generally offer discounted pricing to keep our crews working steadily through the season and give our clients an opportunity for discounted rates.
