Overgrown, unpruned plants can be weak and unsafe. Pruning at the right time in the right way will increase the longevity and resilience of your trees and shrubs, reducing the risk of failed branches, splitting, or disease. Improper pruning can do the opposite, leading to shorter lifespans and fungal or bacterial diseases in your landscape.
Why do we prune in winter? Pruning while your plant is dormant sets the plant up for success in the spring. Pruning spurs plants into action, which means more growth over time, not less. That growth can help plants rejuvenate and refresh, leaving you with a tidy and healthy yard.
Pruning while plants are dormant avoids injury to new growth, and sets the plant up for success in the next growth season. Removing dead, diseased, crossing or cankered branches will help your plants thrive. New growth in the spring will rejuvenate your plant — leaving you with a tidy yard and thriving trees and shrubs.
