Ornamental trees are especially popular during the spring season. They are used to add color to the landscape and create visual appeal. Some of the species in the ornamental category include flowering and fruit bearing trees such as Magnolia trees, Apple trees, Dogwood trees, Maple trees, Spruce trees, etc. Caring for ornamental trees requires a lot of attention to detail and a sense of delicacy, so as to not harm its blooming production. Each ornamental species has its own life/blooming cycle, which the owner and contractor must be familiar with. Pruning of ornamental trees usually occurs after its flowering stage, so as to not decrease the flowering production. Early spring bloomers usually produce buds in the early fall, pruning them before the spring season may cause a decrease in blooming. Other variety of trees that bloom towards the end of the spring season should be pruned immediately after flowering. Pruning trees that flower during the summer season have better flowering results when pruned during the late winter to early spring season. Pruning methods are done in an as per case basis, this is why contracting a professional maybe beneficial and less tedious for the owner.
