JANUARY: Time to Prune!

Time to Prune image

  • Prune trees when dormant (except apricot and cherry)
  • Trim tall trees to remove limbs 6 to 10 feet from the ground but keep at least 2/3 of the total height in foliage
  • Remove branches within 10 ft of chimney. Consult an arborist to consider elimination of branches that overhang the roof to minimize plant debris but not to the detriment of the health of the tree.
  • Avoid topping trees and shearing hedges as this causes weak and twiggy growth and more fuel for a fire.
