Tree Pruning covers a wide range of maintenance operations. Broadleaf Tree Services offer a full spectrum of pruning types and advice.
As a general rule pruning should be avoided during the time of the leaf/needle production and at the time of leaf and needle fall. Cherry and Plum related trees are best be pruned soon after flowering to reduce the chance of infection. Maple, Beech, Birch and Walnut should be pruned whilst in leaf or just after leaf fall. Magnolia are best pruned in high summer to avoid unsightly sap 'bleed'.
