    Small tree pruning is a difficult task. To obtain the best results, talk to the experienced team at Protree. Only a well-versed arborist can know the best time of the year to prune trees. Protree’s arborists possess a broad knowledge to handle many diverse requirements on a per-plant basis. For example:

    • Small deciduous trees lose their leaves in winter. The absence of leaves makes for an easy pruning in colder months. In other cases, pruning is best done in late summer, as healing is quicker.
    • Some trees can bleed sap if pruned in late winter and early spring. Although seldom fatal, this is unsightly and can weaken the tree. In addition, different diseases pose threats year-round and require mitigation.
    • Evergreens seldom need pruning, although dead and diseased branches can be removed in late summer with our dead tree removal service.
