Tree pruning and Auburndale tree trimming are crucial for the health and beauty of your trees.
Trees grow, some fast, some slow, but they all need to be trimmed eventually. There’s a science to cutting trees, but it’s also an art. Auburndale tree trimming automatically stimulates new growth, which helps to maintain their natural beauty. If trees aren’t trimmed properly, you can end up causing severe damage to your trees and therefore needing removed.
The science behind tree care means a deep understanding of tree biology and recognizing the needs of specific trees. Our Arborists and tree specialists have the knowledge and the skillset you’re looking for to keep your trees well maintained and healthy. The art involved includes trimming and pruning by removing dead limbs and brush off a tree, trimming back overgrown areas of a tree, and more. These things aesthetically shape your trees to enhance your land’s beauty and help provide excellent curb appeal to your property.
So, when is the best time to have your trees trimmed or pruned?
You’ll want to have this service between late fall and early Spring. Many people believe that when the trees look their best and are green, plush, and growing well, it’s time to prune or trim them, while they often don’t bother to do Auburndale tree trimming and pruning during winter months when trees are usually dormant and that is a misconception. Many times clients assume that trimming can’t be done during the winter, but that not true.
Whether in warm weather like here in Auburndale, FL, or up north, where they get snow and ice, trimming is best done during those fall/winter and early spring months. Our workers have the best access when trees are dormant. Although most trees don’t go utterly inactive in Florida, they slow their growth patterns and shed leaves in some cases. The limbs aren’t as heavy, and the tree limbs of leafless trees are easier to see.
What are the benefits of pruning from late fall to early Spring?
The first thing that comes to mind is that trees are less susceptible to disease and insects. Freshly pruned trees have cuts and bruises that are likely to attract disease-carrying insects or spread disease. Threats aren’t as abundant in the winter months. Also, it can be easier to see any diseased or damaged wood already present in the fall/winter months.

When Spring rolls around, the tree growth should be healthier if you have chosen dormant pruning and trimming. Trees will be their best when maintained during the dormant season before new growth begins in Spring. When pruning is performed after new leaf development, it can cause limitations on the tree’s bloom potential for the year. To cause your trees less stress, choose dormant to allow for robust new growth in trees that bloom in the warmer seasons.
Can I trim my trees at all during the Spring and summer?
Pruning in Spring and summer works well for some species of trees. Ask one of our specialists about which trees can be trimmed and pruned during the summer months. Knowing when to trim your trees keeps them healthy in the long term and will help them meet their growth potential.
