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

In Seattle, the wintertime is typically the best time to trim and prune most trees  — especially deciduous trees that have lost their leaves and foliage. This makes it easier for the professional to see the tree’s form and make informed cuts to help improve it. 

However, you may need to trim, prune and remove dead branches at various times throughout the year. Some tree species may need to be pruned and cut outside of winter. And if your branches are dead, infected or create a safety hazard, you should remove them as soon as possible.

Always confirm the best time to prune your tree with an expert. Contact Seattle’s best tree trimming professionals today.
