Most people do not realize that with arboriculture, as opposed to most vocations that take place outside, we can continue to work throughout the winter. In fact, we offer our clients a 10% discount for commiting to winter work. Fruit trees are another example of tree work that is best done in the winter. Generally, fruit trees respond better to trimming in the dormant winter months, and pruning while the structure is evident in the tree makes it easier (and faster!) to complete the work while the weather is cold.
