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

Thumbtack Editors

It’s recommended that you trim and prune most deciduous trees in Miami during the winter months, such as February or January. During the winter, trees are dormant before new growth occurs. This is also when deciduous trees have shed their leaves, allowing tree workers to understand the health of the branches and get a better idea of the tree’s shape and structure. 

But if your tree is dying or poses a safety hazard, you might need to trim it as soon as possible — regardless of the time of year. And keep in mind that some tree species might need to be pruned at different times throughout the year.

Consult with Miami’s best tree trimming professionals to determine if your tree needs trimming immediately or if you should wait until a specific season.
