Annual Tree Pruning and Trimming = Healthy Trees
Professional, expert and correct tree pruning (tree trimming) provides a more beautiful, healthy and easier-to-maintain tree.
★ Tree trimming for new trees in the first few years of life will affect tree shape, strength – and increase the tree’s life span.
★ Tree trimming for older trees maintains the tree shape, strength – and safety. It is important to remove older growth and dead branches.
Our Service Area includes Weatherford, Fort Worth, Arlington, Azle, Lake Worth, White Settlement, Benbrook, Colleyville, Southlake, Granbury, Decatur, Boyd and surrounding areas.
Winter Tree Pruning North Texas
When is the best time to prune (trim) trees in the Fort Worth area?
Full tree trimming is best done in winter. Tree pruning in the Fort Worth area can safely be done (most years, depending on weather conditions) from late November to early March. Light pruning and the removal of dead wood can be done anytime.
Contact Harrod’s Arbor Tech for professional tree trimming and pruning.
While pruning at the wrong time of the year may not immediately kill trees – continual improper pruning will result in damaged or weakened trees. The least desirable time for tree pruning is immediately after new growth develops in the spring.
It also is advisable to limit the amount of pruning done late in late summer: pruning may encourage new growth on trees. Fort Worth weather is unpredictable. North Texas has had freezing weather in September! If freezing weather arrives soon after late summer tree trimming – the new growth may not have enough time to mature. This will result in tree cold damage or winter kill.
Prune Trees to Prevent Winter Storm Damage
If the tree has growth that is scraping the roof or near the roof – the overhang needs to be removed.
Also, trees with uneven growth near houses or other structures should be trimmed to even the tree weight distribution.
Prune plants damaged by storms or vandalism or ones with dead limbs as soon as possible to avoid additional insect and disease problems that may develop.

No Tree Topping
Tree topping is the cutting of tree branches to stubs or to lateral branches that are not large enough to assume the scaffold role. Other names for topping include “heading,” “tipping,” “hat-racking,” and “rounding over.”
Sometimes a tree must be reduced in height or spread, such as providing utility line clearance.
There are recommended techniques to use when clearance is needed. Small lateral branches can be removed.
If a larger limb must be shortened, it should be pruned back to a lateral branch that is large enough (at least one-third the diameter of the limb being removed) to assume the scafflold role.
This method of branch reduction helps to preserve the natural form of the tree – and maintain a healthy tree!
