Working in your yard in a winter wonderland may seem strange. In fact, many homeowners stop doing yard work after the weather drops below 50. Before you store away your yard tools, consider doing some winter pruning. Surprisingly, the winter season is the best time for pruning most trees. If you are unsure about winter pruning, consider these strong reasons for winter pruning from our tree experts at 770-Tree-Guy:
You Can See The Branches Better.
Your trees will have fewer leaves to get in the way of your pruning. You will be able to see the shape and structure of the tree more effectively than when your tree has a cover of leaves during the other seasons. Additionally, you can spot disease and damage more easily since they cannot hide behind a canopy of leaves. Grab your parka and head out to prune your trees. Bundling up is worth it for a far simpler pruning job.
Your Trees are Dormant in Winter.
During the warmer months, your trees are putting in the extra effort to grow and produce. Your trees are doing a plant version of hibernation right now, so winter is ideal for pruning. While your trees are resting, they can easily recover from pruning. Pruning in winter keeps your trees from having to multitask and try to grow and heal at the same time.
This is the Off Season for Plant Diseases.
Winter is the worst season for sickness for people, but trees are doing great. They are resting up and most of their disease and pest problems are months away. The pests, fungi, and bacteria which trouble trees much prefer a warm climate. One of the greatest concerns when pruning is that pests will enter through the trees’ pruning wounds. Therefore, winter is optimal because the pests are much less likely to be a problem.
Your Trees Will Be in a Better Place for The Spring.
Pruning stimulates growth in trees throughout the spring months. By removing dead, diseased, and deformed branches, you are helping the tree refocus its energy on the healthy branches. You will be amazed how your tree will flourish when it is not overworked supplying the healthy and unhealthy branches at once.
Although most trees benefit from winter pruning, there are exceptions to be aware of. If your tree flowers in spring, you should prune them after their blooms fade. Those flowering trees will already have buds in place by winter, so pruning would actually hinder them. If you are unsure about whether your tree should be pruned, reach out to our arborists at 770-Tree-Guy. We can help!

If all you know about mistletoe is that people kiss under it, you are not alone. Mistletoe can be found in many homes around the holidays to embrace romance. There is more you should know about mistletoe besides that it is a hanging decoration encouraging smooching. Many homeowners may have mistletoe on their trees in the backyard. Our team at 770-Tree-Guy wants to help you get to know mistletoe and protect your trees.
What You Should Know About Mistletoe:
What is Mistletoe?
Mistletoe is the much easier to say common name for hemiparasitic plants from the Santalales family. Hemiparasitic means that it is somewhat parasitic, but it is also capable of photosynthesis. Because it is parasitic in nature, mistletoe can be problematic for a host plant if it becomes overrun.
Why is Mistletoe used in Holiday Traditions?
If you trace back far enough, you can find that mistletoe has been connected to love and fertility in Greek and Norse folklore. Somewhere around the 18th century, mistletoe became a widespread part of holiday tradition. The kissing tradition is believed to have started among English servants and later spread to middle class society as well. The idea was that a man could steal a kiss from any woman while she was standing underneath the mistletoe. If she refused, it was believed to be bad luck for her. Although most people probably do not believe the bad luck part anymore, mistletoe is still a part of some families’ holiday traditions each year.
What Are The Benefits of Mistletoe?
Mistletoe has been used for hundreds of years medicinally for conditions, such as cancer, asthma, hypertension, epilepsy, infertility, and arthritis. Before you start snacking on mistletoe from your backyard, realize that mistletoe injections from a medical professional are not the same thing as eating berries in the backyard. We do NOT advise anyone to ingest mistletoe under any circumstances.
What Are The Downsides of Mistletoe?
Mistletoe can be poisonous when ingested. You need to especially watch your pets and children because they will be unlikely to handle the poisonous berries as well. An additional drawback is the impact of mistletoe on your trees. Your tree may be able to host some mistletoe, but mistletoe has the potential to stunt your tree’s growth and even kill your tree. If your tree appears to be overrun with mistletoe, consider pruning the mistletoe back. We can help you with professional pruning if needed to get your mistletoe under control.
We wish you and yours a magical and romantic holiday season! If your trees are not feeling the love with too much mistletoe around, give 770-Tree-Guy a call today for a professional solution.
The season of scarves, sweaters, cozy blankets, and hot chocolate is upon us. As you are bundling up your family for the cold, remember to help your trees be layered up for winter too. Trees and shrubs must endure through harsh conditions throughout the winter, so the least we can do is tuck them in with a blanket of mulch. Fall is the ideal time to prepare your yard for the season ahead. Although the temperatures are cooler now, we have not reached freezing temperatures yet. The 770-Tree-Guy team can guide you on how to bundle up your trees with mulch properly before the freeze hits.
Reasons to Mulch in the Fall:
Save Time in the Spring–Mulching in the fall actually saves time when you are caring for your yard in the spring. The mulch you place in the fall will not completely breakdown throughout the winter, so you will not have to work hard mulching in the spring.
Work in Pleasant Conditions—When temperatures are comfortable during the fall days, you will be unlikely to even work up a sweat while you are mulching.
Help Your Trees be Protected in Winter—Think of mulch as a thick winter coat. You will trap warm air to provide insulation for your trees’ roots.
Tips for Fall Mulching:
Create a Layer of Mulch 2-4 Inches Deep and Spanning a 3 Foot Diameter—More is not always better when it comes to mulch. Stay within the advised range for the mulch to provide the desired benefits. You could smother the base of your tree with excessive amounts of mulch. Also, do not build up the mulch around the tree trunk. Piling the mulch up high around the trunk can allow moisture to build up and lead to rot.
Use An Organic Mulch—You could utilize your own natural mulch or purchase some, but we recommend sticking to organic mulch. Organic mulch infuses your soil with incredible benefits for the long-term health of your trees and shrubs. We sell fully organic recycled mulch, so reach out to us if you would like to get some of our quality mulch. We offer a variety of colors to fit every yard’s style.
Keep your yard healthy this winter and start mulching. If you need mulch or assistance, contact 770-Tree-Guy today! We are happy to help you bundle up your bushes and trees.
