The best time to prune any tree is always the winter. Bugs and beetles aren't active to invade fresh cuts. Bettles are the number one way diseases and fugus are spread to trees. Trees have an abundance of energy stored to help seal fresh cuts. Also it is considered the slow time of year for tree work. Often times this leads to better prices. Removals can be done anytime of year. Winter rates apply to removals as well! So all in all winter is low key best time to get tree work done.
