Your trees need special care that’s different from the rest of your landscaping, especially during the hot summer months. You may be wondering whether it’s safe to trim or prune your trees over the summer, or if it’s better to wait until temperatures cool down. Find out how to take care of your landscaping with this guide to summertime tree care from Complete Landscaping.
When to Prune
For the most part, trees should not be heavily pruned in the summer. Trimming your trees around this time means that your trees may not be able to grow back as fully the following year. Leave the heavy pruning to the very beginning of spring or early summer.
Pruning in the Summer
If you do need to prune in the summer, be sure to cut off as little as possible. There are a few reasons that you would need to prune a tree during the summer heat, such as:
-Your goal is to reduce growth
-Monsoon related damage
