We can help you with all of your tree care needs. We follow ANSI A300 standards for pruning. This means that you will not see us using stub cuts (except in storm damage repair), we will not use climbing spurs when trimming, and we WILL NOT TOP TREES. When considering your options for tree care it is very important to establish your main objective. This will help us in assisting you with making the right decision for you and your trees.
Structure Pruning is the selective pruning of trees to improve the architecture of the tree, primarily on young trees. This is one of the most over-looked maintenance practices. By establishing a strong form now, you can prevent a lot of future problems. This is one of the most important things you can do to ensure a quality tree canopy for future generations.
Sometimes all that is needed is to trim a few branches away from the house or to raise the canopy of a tree for more headroom when cutting the lawn.
It is very important that the tree is planted properly. A large percentage of trees are installed incorrectly. Sometimes this is not apparent until years down the road. This is why you should use an arborist to plant your trees.
Soil compaction is a very serious problem in the landscape setting. Roots need pore space in the soil for proper growth. We have several methods for relieving compaction. Another serious problem is when dirt or mulch is piled against the trunk of a tree. This is a leading cause of tree death. We can excavate the root flare of the tree manually or with specialized tools that use compressed air.
Cables are used to support weak unions in a tree. They are relatively easy to install and can help prevent tree failure. Cables can be a great alternative to removal. They are installed in the upper canopy and generally are not very visible. We install both static and dynamic systems.
Sometimes it is necessary to remove a tree. Reasons to remove a tree include: hazard reduction, construction, crowding, or simply an undesirable species. If it comes time to take your tree out, you can count on us to do it safely with minimal damage to surrounding property.
Stump grinding consists of grinding the stump into mulch to a depth of 4"-6" ( we can go deeper if needed) . After the stump is ground, we can haul away the excess mulch and even bring in dirt to make it look like it was never there. We have a dedicated Stump Removal Representative. This allows us to have very quick turn around time if all you need is a stump removed.
