Winter pruning takes place between the months of December - February. This is a great time to prune deciduous trees; trees that shed their leaves at the end of season. Examples of these types of trees would include but not limited to Chinese Elm, Ash, Pear, Mulberry, Cottonwood, Jacaranda and Pistache.
Spring pruning takes plave between the months of early March - April. This is a great time to prune Citrus Trees just before the new flowers of the upcoming seasons fruit. Spring can also be a good time to do any heavy pruning on heat-sensitive trees including Aleppo Pines and Ficus Trees. Most important during this season, any monsoon pruning on hazardous trees should be a top priority before the winds come through.
This is our busiest time of year! Summer pruning takes place between the months of May - August. This is what we tend to call "Palm Tree Season," as it's the ideal time to do any palm work. We recommend to wait till later in the season- prime time is July, that way all of the palm fronds have fully growth out, and the seed pods are fully developed. Summer is also great to prune any drought-tolerant trees which include Sisso, Palo Verde, Mesquite, Acacia and African Sumacs.
Fall pruning takes pleace between the months of September - October. This is the best time of year to prune pretty much any tree before the winter months. The weather is perfect!
