Trim Your Leawood, KS Trees When the Time is Right

When is the right time to hire a Leawood, KS tree trimming company? Getting your trees trimmed occasionally is just as important as getting your hair trimmed on a regular basis in order to keep the Leawood area looking pristine. Even if you think the trees on your property appear healthy, trimming them will help keep them refreshed and disease-resistant.

What you may not realize though, is that timing is key. Trees that are trimmed following an off timing from the natural cycle could them susceptible to rotting, bug problems, breakage, off-balance, and splitting.

Use these general guidelines to find the right season to trim your trees.


A tree’s winter dormant phase is the opportune time to trim. Come spring, there should be a fresh outburst of growth. Ideally, it is best to wait until the harshest winter weather is over.


No surprise, spring is a time of growth for a tree and so we at Safety Tree recommend letting a tree run its natural course by growing out, fruiting, or flowering.


Sometimes after wind or rain storms that come with spring weather there are damaged, hanging or broken twigs which means it is a good time to clean up and trim trees around your property. When you trim right after growth has been completed you help slow tree growth, which is good for the tree at this time.


Although there are exceptions due to the fact that each tree is different. From this, It is recommended to wait to do tree trimming right before winter arrives. This way, the tree has time to heal from the post-trimming openings during winter’s dormant phase mentioned above.

The trees around your property are what make the neighborhood beautiful. Call Leawood, Kansas tree trimming company – Safety Tree Service – so we can attend to your property’s tree trimming and upkeep projects.

What People Are Saying

  • Safety Tree Service did a great job trimming several elm and ash trees for me, as well as a few pin oaks. The pin oaks had various dead limbs that needed to be removed and other limbs that needed to be thinned. Ty did an excellent job removing the dead wood and trimming the trees, which helped reduce risk of damage from limbs falling and greatly improved the health and overall appearance of the trees. With the recent bad weather I’m glad I hired Ty as I’m confident one of the limbs would have come down on a power line. I received bids from multiple tree trimmers and Ty’s bid was very competitive and he was able to provide proof of insurance. Some of the other bidders offered lower prices but were not insured! I do recommend Ty to others as he did a great job for me.

  • We needed a to have a couple of large trees removed from our yard. Safety Tree Service did a great job. They raked and collected everything and left us with a totally clean backyard. If we ever need any tree services in the future I will definitely contact you again.

  • We use Ty and his staff at Safety Tree exclusively for all of our tree work referrals. Our company conducts grounds maintenance on a wide variety of residential and commercial properties. We have referred our customers to Ty because they continually tell me how exceptional their overall experience was with Safety Tree. I have heard everything from “experts”, to “very professional”, to “very skilled”, to “clean” and “fair” used to describe their encounters. I would not hesitate at all to recommend Safety Tree to any private or public entity or for any project regardless of scope or size.
