Trimming & Pruning

Tree Trimming Service

Customers often ask, “When is the best time of the year to prune a tree?"  Typically, the best time of the year to perform major pruning or tree trimming in Denver, Lakewood and the neighboring area occurs during the trees' dormancy period. In Colorado this time frame to hire a tree maintenance service begins in mid to late October when the leaves fall and continues through February or March when trees begin to grow again. However, routine pruning to remove weak, dead limbs, or diseased tree limbs can be accomplished at any time during the year with minimal effect on the tree. If necessary, we provide tree felling services to cut down specific trees.

Tree pruning in Denver CO during dormancy helps reduce the risk of fungus and insect infestation in trees. It also helps reduce the amount of sap loss which in turn minimizes stress placed on the tree.
