Dormant season

Trees in Hard Landscapes, A Guide for Delivery, published by the Trees and Design Action Group in September 2014, defines the dormant season as: ‘…a phase in the lifecycle of trees when growth and many associated metabolic processes are temporarily stopped, helping to conserve energy until warmer and lighter conditions return. Trees typically go dormant during the winter months.’
