Can a tree inspection or pruning be done in winter?

winter tree inspection
With the leaves out of the trees it is much easier to see structural problems. Cracks, fungi, crossing, rubbing and even dead branches are easily spotted from the ground. Not only can you see the structure of the trees and what may be hazardous, but winter is a good season to have these hazards removed.

The cold weather helps keep wood destroying fungi and bacteria to a minimum, and for the most part, insects that feed on trees are in their over-wintering stages. Without the high number of wood destroying agents these winter months give the trees time to heal or compartmentalize the wounds which are left behind from a cut branch. This short window without the wood decaying agents is valuable time for the trees to get a jump start on the following growing season.
