Dormant Season Pruning

Are acorns driving you nuts this season?

If you have oak trees on or around your property, ​it’s likely you’ve noticed acorns dropping at a much higher rate than usual this year​. Acorns may be good for wildlife, but they can be quite a nuisance when they constantly fall on your driveway or walkway.

An increase in the number of acorns falling is an indication of a “mast year” for oak trees. In other words, the acorn production of oak trees has increased​ significantly​ due to favorable weather conditions, as well as healthy soil and many other factors. It is common for ​larger ​oak trees to produce up to 10,000 acorns during mast years, which typically occur once or twice every five years.

How can you better control acorn production without compromising the health of your tree?

This is one of the most frequently asked questions during this time of year, and the answer is easy… dormant season pruning. When overgrown oaks are pruned, branches and shoots are reduced which helps control the production of acorns. If the oak tree’s branches are not pruned, they will continue to grow, increasing the surface area for acorns to grow. Though pruning won’t eliminate acorn production, it will significantly reduce acorn production with results that are evident year-round.

    • My favorite tree service crew! I rank Top Tier high for their safety and professionalism. Did removal & stump grinding last year, and called them again for tree service this year. David shared vital info about my trees. Chaz and Erin have been great to work with. The tree svc crews work very well together on site; a pleasure to watch. I'd call them again

      -Frank Maina, GA
    • Wow, great customer service, promptly returned my calls and had Erin, a sales and customer service representative out within 2 hours. I was very happy with the quote so we wanted to get started right away. Their was an opening in their schedule and had a crew at my house all before noon on Friday. Very fast and efficient, i could not be more pleased.

      - Robin Chitwood, GA
    • Outstanding & professional work! We had 7 trees removed & the crew did an excellent job from start to finish. They even trimmed a few branches that needed trimming. Clean-up was great. The crew introduced themselves & engaged with us throughout the job.
