Winter is the best Time for Tree Removal
Trees can be removed year round, but winter is the best season for several reasons:
Better for soil and grass
Frozen lawns are not as easily marked by heavy equipment, protecting soil and grass. Winter tree removal helps maintain the health of the land by preventing damage to surrounding trees and keeping dead trees from interrupting the distribution of soil nutrients in spring.
Tree Structure is easier to assess
When the leaves are gone it's much easier to identify dead and dangerous branches. The less obstructed view allows arborists to better assess damage and decay. Equipment operators are able to work more efficiently, saving on costs.
Trees are dormant in winter
Most of the bugs, fungi and other parasites that spread tree disease are dormant in winter, making it the safest time for removal. Removing trees when pests and diseases are dormant helps prevent their spread to other trees nearby.
Reduces Risk of Damage
A dangerous tree in summer is doubly dangerous in winter under the weight of heavy Wisconsin snow and ice. There's no need to wait for spring to get your dangerous trees removed.
