Winter Pruning Cumming, GA

You may not think your yard needs much attention during the cold months. However, there are some important and beneficial yard maintenance tasks that are ideal during the winter season. Tree pruning is a lawn care responsibility that you should tackle before the temperature warms up.

Why the winter for tree pruning? There are several good reasons to prune trees in winter. First, the branches and tree structure is most visible in the winter since the foliage has fallen off. Second, dormant winter trees mean that you will not have bleeding sap when you cut or prune your tree. Lastly, winter pruning greatly reduces the risk of exposing a tree to disease. Oak trees are an example. Oaks need to be pruned in winter because they emit an odor that attracts beetles when freshly cut. These beetles often cause serious tree disease called oak wilt. Winter Oak pruning is ideal when beetles are hibernating.

It is very important that you follow a few rules when you decide to prune your trees. Cutting back main branches to stubs or “topping” trees is not as effective as it may seem. Often the limbs will grow back even higher than before and they can also be weaker. Gradual pruning is best to protect the health of your tree. A lawn care professional, such as Panonne’s Lawn Pros & Landscaping can help you with winter tree pruning. We can not only help you determine which trees are best to prune in the winter, but a professional can also ensure the proper technique and pruning method is used for your specific trees or shrubs.

What our clients say about us

Katherine M.

Would give 10 stars if I could. Pannone Landscaping exceeded our expectations and was such a pleasure to work with! Brad set reasonable expectations for the timing of the work (leveling, drainage system, fire pit, and sodding), and was the best priced quote with quality material and labor. We cannot speak highly enough of Brad and his crew, from their professionalism to expert advice to skilled work! Our yard went from ugly mud pit to lush golf course. Looking forward to working with Pannone and his team again!

Alex D.

Brad and his team did a wonderful job for us! Our backyard was overgrown and a mess after we moved in. Brad helped us come up with a plan to turn it around that would work for our family. He was quick to respond, reasonable priced, and our yard looks fantastic. We’ve gotten so many compliments. Hope to work with him again in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone that needs some landscaping help!

We had the best experience working with Pannone's Lawn Pros & Landscaping! Brad guided us on every aspect of our exterior renovation from hardscapes to the annual color. He worked to find exactly what we were looking for even when items were difficult to find. We greatly appreciate his responsiveness, honest guidance and professionalism throughout the entire project. Thank you Brad!!
