When should trees be trimmed?

The right time for trimming your tree depends on the kind of tree you have but oftentimes this can be done during winter when most trees are dormant. During this period, trees can recover quickly and regain strength rapidly. Trimming in winter also minimizes the amount of sap that the tree oozes. This little amount can’t attract disease-causing insects. Professionals working on your trees can also discharge their duty quickly because of clear visibility.
Summer can also be an ideal time to trim specific kinds of trees. Sappy trees like maple and birch can be trimmed during summer. You can also trim fruit trees during summer if they become gigantic.
