Ready, Set, Prune!

Late February is a suitable time for certain pruning projects in the Lower Mainland, when the coldest part of winter has concluded. Please note: Be sure to do your own research with regards to the best time of year to prune your particular species of shrubs and trees. You may discover that some need to be pruned later in the year.

Why do you need to prune?

  • Pruning promotes a new burst of growth for spring
  • Healthier, fuller, and more mature greenery over time
  • Better structure
  • Looks tidier and improves curb appeal
  • Prevents the development of weak and broad branches
  • Prevents the growth of limbs in weak spots
  • Gets rid of dying branches
  • Increased air circulation
  • More sun exposure for fruit trees
  • Eliminate obstructed views

You might be thinking, “I don’t even know where to begin…” which is completely understandable because pruning takes a lot of skill and experience. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you contact a professional to get the job done right… the first time.
