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

Most deciduous trees in Houston should be pruned in the coldest months of winter. This is when the tree is in a dormant stage of its cycle, giving the tree an opportunity to bloom. This also helps protect it from insect infestations. 

However, there are exceptions. If your tree is infected, dying or poses a safety hazard, it may be best to trim it as soon as possible. It might also be a good idea to get rid of dead or overgrown branches before a major storm hits the area. And keep in mind some tree species might need pruning and trimming at different times throughout the year.

When in doubt, consult with a tree expert to confirm the best time of year to trim your trees. Here are the best tree trimming professionals in Houston.
