Tree pruning is a great way to get your trees lush and wonderful looking. Pruning anything--when done the right way is a healthy thing for trees and shrubs. Here at Orange Count Best Tree Service we get the job done and the right way. Most people don't know that there is an art and a science to pruning trees. If done the wrong way, it could disturb the chemistry of the tree or plant and it just won't grow properly.
Pruning is a way of training the growth of the plant or tree so the end results is always a beautiful lush green or flowering tree or plant. The science behind pruning is specific. You need to know that there are certain times to do certain pruning techniques and with which species at which time. There is a way to treat each and every species so this is why you call us here at Orange County Best Tree Service.
Area Arboreal Knowledge: You can count on us at Orange County Best Tree Service to know the area well. The Orange County area is rich with both indigenous trees and exotic transplants. Each piece of property is significantly different than the next and need to be treated with knowledge and respect of the species so the most optimal result is accomplish. And that is what we do.
Winter and Summer Pruning: We know that California and its seasons aren't like a lot of the continent. We know that the same trees and shrubs will grow and react to the weather and sometimes dramatic climate changes we experience here differently than they would elsewhere. So, seasonal pruning adds another layer of challenge but we are always confident we know exactly what needs to be done.
It's best to make a winter pruning appointment just when the coldest part of the winter has passed. In regions where the cold is not so prevalent--then anytime mid-winter to end of winter but at least 30-60 days prior to spring a pruning appointment should be made.
Bonus Tip: Don't be concerned about trees like maple or birch that sap out or bleed. It's actually a natural and good process for the tree and it will slow down and stop closer to spring time.
Summer Pruning: We gave this one its own heading because it is done for other reasons. We like to educate our clients as much as at all possible so they are more aware of why they are making an appointment at a certain time. With summer pruning the purpose is to slow the growth of a tree by essentially slowing the food source to the roots. We will take the short and tiny branches and prune them to leave less of a leaf base therefor preventing the overgrowth but encouraging the lush and full flowering tree or shrub to bare wonderful floral scents and colors that lavish your landscape.
Bonus Tip: As far as pruning away dead wood and leaves, you can do this any time of year. But leave the rest to the pros at Orange County Best Tree Service.
Two Rules of Pruning Thumb: We have given you a lot of valuable information here as to when the right time for the right pruning exercises are to take place--but so you aren't overwhelmed--remember these two rules of thumb.
When we Won't Prune: The fall is when we don't perform pruning duties. Why? This is when excessive sporing and pollinating occur and it is the perfect time to stop any work apart from emergency cutting and pruning after a storm or some other issue that may cause a safety issue or property damage issue. This is because the tree will heal so much slower during this time and the growth after pruning just won't come out right.
