Pruning is the most common tree maintenance chore. Residential and landscape trees require a higher level of care to maintain their structural integrity and aesthetics. Pruning must be done with an understanding of tree biology that a ISA trained certified arborist possess. Improper pruning can create lasting damage or even shorten the tree's life.

The timing of the pruning work is just as important as the cuts being made. Some of the tree pruning tasks can be completed anytime throughout the season. But do to the rise of certain fatal tree diseases such as oak wilt that can be spread by open wounds; Flower City tree recommends most tree pruning maintenance be done during dormant season(December-early March.) During this time the trees structure is easily visible due to the leaves being off the tree.
