While it may not feel like it, now is a good time to check winter tree care off of your to-do list. Trees lie dormant in the colder weather between autumn and spring, which is the perfect time for a little aesthetic shaping. Thanks to our friends at Ostvig Tree Care for these winter tree pruning tips.
We live in Minnesota. We know that in spring, winter, summer, and fall, a big storm is likely just around the corner. Loose and dangling limbs should be removed beforehand as a safety precaution. With an empty canopy, it's easy to identify and remove risky branches.
With insects and disease held at bay by the cold, winter is an ideal time to prune trees and shrubs. Pruning later in the winter, just before spring growth starts, leaves wounds exposed just a short time before the healing process kicks in. This means you can safely correct issues without (much) concern for insect and disease infection.
Winter is the best time to prune elms and oaks so avoid dutch elm disease and oak wilt. By the 1st of April, these diseases are already on the move, and the amount of risk increases.
Great tree pruning will balance overall health with enhancing the tree's natural shape. Pruning can also be done as part of a privacy program, to increase flower production, or to provide clearance for people, furniture, and structures.
And that's it! While the cold weather may make you want to go dormant like a tree, especially with outdoor chores, now is the perfect time to take care of the trees in your landscape. Not only are they beautiful and charismatic, but mature and healthy trees add value to your property. Don't delay, call an arborist today.
If you are ready to try something different, these alternatives to sod require less water, less fertilizer, and less effort to maintain.

Thunderstorms can happen in any season, but June is usually the most active month. They can form in less than 30 minutes and last for hours. Typically, though, a thunderstorm lasts approximately 30 minutes and, on average, is roughly 15 miles wide.
