There’s nothing like the breathtaking sight of a winter landscape with barren trees sleeping dormant against a backdrop of snow and ice while they wait for spring to arrive once more. It can be easy to forget that these sleeping giants are still very much alive and thriving under all of that snow, ready to come to life again when the world returns to spring’s vibrant greens.
A common mistake made by homeowners is to assume that trees require no maintenance during the winter months. To keep your trees and landscape looking their best, it’s important to take advantage of the dormant months and conduct regular winter tree pruning.

Don’t overlook these important winter tree maintenance steps:
1. Protect Your Property
When winter storms hit, one of the most significant dangers is the risk of property damage and personal injury from falling branches. This is due to the weight of ice, which can cause branches and limbs to weaken or break. Another common problem occurs when these branches impact power lines.
To minimize the risk of property damage, a professional tree pruning service should remove branches that are located near important structures and power lines. It’s also important to remove any branches that might create a potential safety risk elsewhere on your property.
2. Consider Tree Removal Service
If you have trees growing in close proximity to your power lines, it’s a good idea to consider tree removal service. Although these trees can pose a risk during the winter months, they are often a greater threat once spring arrives. When the weather changes and spring or summer storms bring high wind gusts, their proximity to power lines could cause you or your neighborhood to lose your power.
3. Remove Dead Limbs and Branches
In addition to the above safety concerns, winter tree pruning service should also focus on preparing your trees for healthy growth in the spring and summer. Removing unhealthy branches gives your tree room to grow healthier branches while reducing the risk that tree diseases will spread throughout your lawn.
