Why do we prune trees in the wintertime?

Why in the world would we prune trees in the wintertime? I mean seriously why? It is so cold in Michigan during the winter, why would we be out pruning trees in the cold and snowy weather? These weather conditions however, are very favorable for oak tree pruning. In Michigan we have a disease called Oak Wilt and the best time of year to prune oak trees is in the winter! Many of our clients have oak trees. So, this is a perfect scenario for our clients. Oak trees need to be pruned during the dormant season, which is the winter. The oak trees are dormant, the fungus is dormant and the insect that transports the disease is dormant. This essentially lowers the risk of infection of the tree. This equals perfect timing for oak pruning. If you have more questions on Oak Wilt please contact us at our office or check out our YouTube channel on the subject.

what people say

  • They took our two trims, did other trimming and cleaned up well. I am totally satisfied with their work and recommend them. They went beyond expectations.

  • I met Jared at a Business Network International meeting. Every person I spoke with recommended JB Landscape Services for their professionalism, dependability, honesty, and integrity.

    I asked for a load of seasoned hardwood cut in 16" lengths. Forty-eight hours later we had a full cord and a short bit more. It appeared to be a mixture of oak, birch, and hickory. None of it appeared to be green. We have burned three fires and each one has been perfect--easy to start--and each burned to complete ash.

    I understand that they have since begun focusing their business solely on the tree service side of landscaping as Get-R-Cut.com. There is every reason to believe that this is the perfect realignment.

    At least from this experience, I wholeheartedly recommend this family owned business.

    Thanks Baxter's. You're great!

  • I had Get-R-Cut come to my house to do some pruning on Oak trees in my backyard. We had some areas that we had different kinds of plants that were directly under the trees to be pruned that we did not want damaged. Jared and Chris did a great job in avoiding any damage to those areas. Jared did a great job in removing a lot of dead branches and pruning up the trees to providing an idea shape to them. Chris, Jared's helper, did a tremendous job managing things on the ground and constantly removing brush and cutting up branches to move to their chipper.
    The clean up process was very well done. I would highly recommend them to others if they need trees pruned or removed. I will be having them return to remove 3 very large trees from our front yard in the near future to get rid of potential problems with them.
