Fall tree trimming

For an amateur tree trimmer, autumn may not be the best time of year to prune trees and shrubs. For the professional arborist, like the folks that provide services at Trees "R" Us, Inc., any time of the year is fair game.

Consider the following October tree pruning tips:
During the early autumn, wounds caused by pruning can close more slowly. Plants and trees are far more at risk for fungal diseases. Late winter is an opportune time because tree wounds tend to close more quickly.

Pruning in the fall should be attempted after trees have dropped their leaves and become dormant. It’s easy to see the tree’s structure and identify diseases or insect problems more easily.

Fall is the perfect time to remove dead, damaged or diseased wood. It’s best to hire a professional arborist to remove large limbs, out of reach branches or other large jobs that are tough to handle.  Trees "R" Us, Inc. has certified arborists fully trained and ready to help you with your tree care this fall.

Late summer and early fall pruning can help stimulate a tree or shrub’s growth.

Really Consider Hiring a Tree Service that has Certified Arborists to do the Job!  Here's why:
Tree pruning can be dangerous business, especially if the job requires working above ground or using heavy equipment. Arborists, like those employed by Trees "R" Us, Inc., are trained to determine what type of pruning works best. They can also provide the trusted services of a well-trained crew, required safety equipment and proper liability insurance.

A professional tree pruning service will be able to provide proof of:
Professional membership in professional organizations such as the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA), the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA), or the American Society of Consulting Arborists (ASCA)
ISA Certification
Proof of liability insurance
Legitimate references
