Tree Care Tips: November

  • As temperatures begin to drop, lighten up the pruning on most evergreen trees except for deadwood removal and structural improvements.
  • For more vigorous trees like mesquites, olives, sumacs and eucalyptus, a little more pruning can be done. In fact we recommend a semi-annual light pruning of trees pruned in May or June. Because most mesquites can’t safely go a full year on their summer trimming, it makes sense to prune them again now. This semi-annual interval also helps keep your trees looking great.
