It's cold and tough work but the majority of pruning that RANESCAPE does takes place during the winter. The biggest benefits of pruning your trees and shrubs during the winter are:





Without leaves, the individual branches and internal structure of deciduous trees and shrubs is much easier to see:

By pruning in the dormant season, we can accomplish a better health assessment of the trees and shrubs. Problems like ripped branches, crossing branches, and limbs that are stacked on top of each other can be taken care of while ensuring that the unique form and structure of the plant is maintained.


During the winter, the tree’s ability to acquire food is not disrupted:

When we prune during the growing season, we impact the plant’s ability to generate energy. In the winter, this impact is significantly reduced.


The chance for trees and shrubs to become target for insects and diseases is reduced:

Most insects that attack trees and/or transmit diseases are dormant during the winter. Pruning wounds have a better chance of sealing in early spring before the majority of pests and diseases become active.


Less weight:

No leaves reduces weight and increases our efficiency while lessening the potential of pruning cuts to rip or tear, minimizing additional potential damage. This reduction of weight translates into savings for our clients.


Develop a stronger structure:

Pruning during the winter can help stimulate the growth of the remaining branches. In addition, It helps the tree to develop a stronger structure while improving form and appearance.
