California Tree Trimmers Busy With Winter Work | Commercial Insurance Product Highlight

We normally put landscaping to the back of our minds as the seasons shift toward the colder months in California. So it’s easy to overlook the fact that Tree Trimmers are just as active (in fact, more so) during the Fall and Winter months.

2 Reasons Why Tree Work Is Best Performed in Fall/Winter (source):

  • It’s healthier for the trees to be pruned and trimmed when they are dormant during the colder months
  • It’s better for the ecosystem and wildlife because, without the foliage on the trees, and with less active nests being built and lived in, there is less potential to harm wildlife — some of which are actually state protected and could result in citations and fines if handled improperly!

In fact, California has more tree trimming and landscaping workers than any other state.
