There are several good reasons why people should do tree trimming and shrub trimming during the fall. Once the leaves fall off of trees and shrubs, it is much easier to do any necessary trimming and pruning. When there are no more leaves on trees and shrubs, it is easier to see which branches to trim or totally cut off. This is when all the dead branches are noticeable and can be taken care of.
Besides taking off the dead branches, there are branches which grow in different directions and cross other branches. These branches should be trimmed to make the trees and shrubs look better. If crossing branches are left where they are at, the shrubs and trees would look overgrown and eventually not grow right.
Tree trimming, shrub trimming, and pruning are good to do any season, but doing it in the fall is easier. The leaves die and fall off in the fall season, which makes it easier to see which branches need to be trimmed and at what point in the branch it needs to be done. Once the branches are trimmed in the right spot, the shrubs and trees will look better in the spring when the leaves grow back.
It is important to trim and prune trees and shrubs so they get the proper amount of sunlight. When trees and shrubs only get sunlight in certain areas, but not all areas, then they will grow in spots and not in other spots. This would make the tress and shrubs look misshapen. They need the proper amount of sunlight all around them to grow properly.
By trimming trees and shrubs properly it will help the air circulate around them better. The better the air circulation around them will also mean they will receive the proper amount of water from rain and sprinkles all over. Shrubs and trees grow better when they receive water and air circulation around them.
