When is the best time of year to trim trees in Denver?

Thumbtack Editors

In Denver, winter is the best time to trim deciduous trees. This reduces the risk of damaging the tree’s health, as most trees are dormant during this period. Pruning in the summer months makes the trees vulnerable to insects, mold and disease. 

But keep in mind it’s okay to trim dead, dying branches at any time of the year — especially if it’s a safety hazard. Also, some tree species may need to get pruned or trimmed during different seasons.

Consult with best tree trimming professionals in Denver to confirm the best time of year to trim your trees.
