Winter is the perfect time for dormant pruning!
Dormant pruning helps avoid problems such as stunting and allows wounds to heal before new growth starts. Winter pruning can improve branch structure before damage occurs from high winds and heavy snow or ice loads. We can provide structural pruning of apple, pear and other fruit trees, as well as any small tree in your landscape (native or non-native).
Dormant pruning is ideal for fruit trees, particularly apple and pear. Pruning to encourage good light penetration and air circulation, as well as the removal of the “3 D’s” (dead, diseased or damaged wood) are cornerstone principles for all trees in general. However, they are even more important for fruit production. Winter pruning for these plants helps to encourage flower and fruit development.
Our pruning services include:
*Pruning for improved branching structure in vines, shrubs, and trees under 15′ tall.
*Rejuvenation and renewal pruning of shrubs. (Rejuvenation pruning will occur in February and March.)
*Pruning of grapevines, apple,and pear trees.
We can also teach you how to prune plants in your landscape (under 15′ in height). We’ll work with you as you learn how, where, and when to cut. Click Here to Request our Services.
