Can tree pruning and garden work be done during the winter?

In fact winter is the best time for tree pruning as trees are dormant, meaning they do not bleed sap and deciduous trees have dropped there leaves, making navigating the canopy easier. Garden projects done in the winter benefit from more space in the garden, without annuals, bulbs and tender growth to work around.

Ascent Yard Care exceeded my expectations. The team completed more work in two days then I could have in a month. The most positive thing about Ascent is their strong communication skills and following through.
