Many people don’t think about yard maintenance until the weather gets warmer. However, there are numerous benefits to pruning trees in winter. Since most species are dormant during this time, removing dead or damaged branches will help the tree conserve energy and promote faster growth in spring. The cold weather also reduces the risk of disease or infestation setting in before the tree can heal. Plus, it’s easier to see which branches need to be trimmed when there aren’t leaves in the way.

However, the ideal time to prune trees and shrubs depends on several factors, including the plant’s species. Here’s what you should know about pruning during various other times of the year:

  • Early spring. This is a great time to prune summer-blooming trees and shrubs as it thins out the canopy before the growing season begins. This time of year, the weather is still cool enough to prevent most pests and diseases.

  • Late spring. Trees and shrubs that flower in early spring, such as lilacs, should be pruned immediately after blooming. This is because pruning in winter or later in the growing season will remove flower buds and limit the plant’s growth.

  • Summer. Many trees can benefit from having dead or vulnerable branches trimmed before a summer storm to prevent extensive damage. Certain species, such as maple trees, are best pruned in June or July.

  • Autumn. Even though some species can be pruned nearly any time of year, you should avoid pruning trees in autumn. This is because pruning can stimulate new growth, which tends to be too delicate to survive cold weather.

All Season Tree Service offers comprehensive pruning services throughout the year. If you’re uncertain about the best time to prune the various trees and shrubs on your property, it’s best to consult a professional arborist. Our team is happy to provide expert advice about when to trim your trees to maximize their health and longevity.


At All Season Tree Service, we make sure the shrubs and hedges on your property get the care they need to flourish. Certain shrubs must be pruned at a specific time of year in order to bear fruit. Hedges, however, should be sheared regularly throughout their early growing season to maintain their thickness. If you want to ensure your various plants are properly pruned at the right time of year, trust the knowledgeable arborists at All Season Tree Service. From removing suckers to inspecting roots for signs of disease, our team will provide your shrubs and hedges the care they need to thrive.



By removing dead, damaged and diseased branches from the trees and shrubs on your property, you can help keep your yard safe and your plants healthy. Here are just some of the reasons to add tree and shrub pruning to your yard maintenance to-do list:

  • To prevent disease and infestation. If dead or damaged branches are allowed to remain on a tree or shrub, the plant becomes more susceptible to disease, rot and invasions from harmful insects. Additionally, pruning helps keep trees healthy and, therefore more resilient to diseases and infestations.

  • To maintain the tree’s structural integrity. Structural pruning makes trees more resilient by removing competing leaders and creating space between the main limbs. This reduces the risk of split trunks and other types of damage. It can also help the tree live longer than it would if pruning was neglected.

  • To reduce the risk of storm damage. Since trees are made more robust, stronger, and healthier by regular pruning, their branches are less likely to break in strong winds or under the weight of heavy snow and ice. This reduces the risk of your trees becoming a safety hazard to nearby people and property during a storm.

  • To promote flowering and fruit production. In addition to clearing the way for new growth, pruning fruit trees at the right time of year will yield high-quality fruit. Similarly, regular maintenance of flowering shrubs will help promote healthy and plentiful blooms.

  • To keep branches away from power lines. If a tree is growing near a power line, it’s the responsibility of the property owner to have it pruned so that it doesn’t cause a power outage, fire or electrocution. Since utility line clearing is dangerous, it must be left to professionals.

  • To help reduce the risk of forest fires. Among other preventive measures you can take to help protect your neighbourhood, regularly removing dead branches from your trees and shrubs limits the amount of potential fuel for forest fires.

However, keep in mind that over-pruning a tree can do more harm than good. Additionally, it’s best to maintain the tree's natural shape whenever possible. The best way to ensure your plants are properly pruned is to entrust this job to a professional from All Season Tree Service.


Understanding the distinctions between pruning, shaping, and trimming can help you make informed decisions when caring for your landscape.



Pruning is a fundamental technique used to promote the overall health and vitality of trees and plants. It involves the selective removal of dead, diseased, or damaged branches, as well as those that may be obstructing sunlight or airflow. Additionally, pruning is employed to eliminate crossing or rubbing branches, which can lead to wounds and diseases.


The main goals of pruning are to:


  • Enhance plant structure: Pruning encourages a strong and balanced branch structure, reducing the risk of limb failure during storms or heavy winds.

  • Stimulate growth: By removing unwanted branches, the plant can direct its energy towards new growth and development.

  • Improve aesthetics: Pruning can enhance the appearance of trees and shrubs, giving them a well-maintained and tidy appearance.

  • Encourage flowering and fruiting: Proper pruning can promote increased flower and fruit production in certain plants.



Shaping involves the deliberate pruning of plants to achieve specific aesthetic goals. It is a more meticulous and artistic practice aimed at creating desired forms or silhouettes for ornamental purposes. Shaping is commonly used in formal gardens, topiaries, and landscape designs where plants are sculpted into particular shapes or patterns.


Key aspects of shaping include:


  • Precision: Shaping requires careful and precise pruning to achieve the desired form or design.

  • Regular maintenance: Shaped plants often require frequent trimming to retain their desired appearance.

  • Artistic expression: Shaping allows gardeners and landscapers to showcase their creativity and design skills.



Trimming is a routine maintenance practice that involves cutting back overgrown or untidy growth from plants to maintain a neat and uniform appearance. It is commonly applied to hedges, shrubs, and bushes to keep them in shape and prevent them from encroaching on walkways, driveways, or nearby structures.


Key features of trimming include:


  • Regularity: Trimming is typically done on a more frequent basis than pruning or shaping, as it focuses on the maintenance of specific shapes or sizes.

  • Controlled growth: By consistently trimming back new growth, plants can be managed to stay within desired boundaries.

  • Neat appearance: Trimming ensures a tidy and well-groomed look for landscape elements.
