We know what you’re likely thinking, “tree tree pruning in the winter sounds crazy, they’re basically dormant.” Exactly! Just one reason that trimming trees in the wintertime makes good sense. Naturally, most people don’t think of their property in the way of lawn care in the winter. Even in Florida it can get cold and, for at least a short while, nothing grows. While it is not sensible to trim your lawn, trimming your trees is advantageous in the wintertime. Let’s explore 5 Benefits of Winter Pruning.

Now that you’ve learned 5 benefits of winter pruning, take note that “not all trees and shrubs should be pruned in the winter or early spring, however. Generally speaking, shrubs and trees that bloom on new growth should be pruned in the winter and early spring, while those that bloom on old growth should be pruned in late spring or summer (i.e., after their flowers fade).” – https://www.almanac.com/winter-pruning-guide-trees-and-shrubs
