What time of year is best to cut down trees?

Oct 25


Although it is difficult to remove trees, it is sometimes necessary. It doesn't really matter if your tree has fallen or if you simply want to clean up your yard.

 What is the best time for trees to be cut?

 The best time to take down a tree is in winter or early spring. This is when all leaves have gone and the branches are dead. While you might be concerned about freezing ground making it more difficult to remove trees from the ground, warm earth is much easier to disturb.


It can also impact the landscape around it. While the tree is being removed, the frozen ground holds the vegetation in place. Check out, Tree Removal Techniques for more guidance.

Benefits of cutting down trees in winter/spring

You can cut down your tree during winter or spring because the leaves have fallen off and it causes minimal disturbance to the landscape. Trees can add value to your property so it is worth considering if you are selling your house. Save your money by following the Tree Removal Budget Ideas.


Potential buyers might not wish to deal with sick trees directly. Trees can take many years to reach maturity. It's a huge decision.

Tree Cutting at the Best Time of the Year

According to statistics, February and March are the most costly months for removing trees. Because the leaves are gone and trees are less labor-intensive, this means that it is less expensive to remove them. Despite this, late spring can be busy for tree companies. If you are aware of the arrival of a tree company, it is important to make your booking as soon as possible.

Factors that affect the cost of cutting down trees

The cost of the work depends on the area, the difficulty of cutting, the surrounding terrain, the condition of your tree, and any extra work required for extraction. Be wary of very low prices. Rates that seem too low are probably too good to be true.


Companies may also be able to skip important costs, which could lead to problems. Arborists are professionals. They have successfully completed training and are certified. Although this does not guarantee the quality, it can give you some assurance and show your professional commitment to the trade.


Pricing is determined by the size and location of the tree. Depending on the severity of the problem, careful planning might be required. However, most arborists will provide free estimates so you can plan ahead to understand the cost.
