Why trimming during dormant months helps Tree Health

Most Texas trees should be trimmed during the coldest months of the year – in most parts of Texas, that’s November through February – when the tree is in the dormant part of its growth cycle. Trimming trees when they’re dormant helps the cut wounds heal faster, reducing the risk of disease and insect infestation.

To get a little more specific about the best times to trim certain varieties of Texas trees, late winter is the best time to prune Texas trees that are either non-blooming or summer-blooming. This includes crepe myrtles and many other varieties prevalent in many Texas yards. Trees that bloom in spring, on the other hand, such as mountain laurels and redbuds, should be trimmed immediately after they bloom (while still as early in the season as possible). Our highly trained crew will trim your trees fast and efficiently.
