TREE PRUNING (TRIMMING)
Our knowledgeable and experienced ISA Certified Arborists on staff will inspect, assess, and provide the best recommendations for your tree’s pruning needs. Our skilled Production Arborists will perform the tree pruning in accordance with ANSII A300 standards and ensure your expectations as well as the tree’s needs are achieved.
Reasons To Prune a Tree:
- Provide clearance of buildings, sidewalks, patios, parking areas, etc.
- Identify and remove hazardous limbs
- Reduce the risk of future storm damage
- Maintain and improve vitality of the tree
- Remove dead, dying, diseased or broken branches
- Aesthetically enhance the appearance of the tree
Anytime the ground is to be excavated near your trees, root pruning will help protect and preserve your trees.
When Do I Need To Root Prune :
- Patio / deck installations
- Pool installations
- Garage / building installations
- Disease control – Root Grafting i.e. Dutch Elm Disease, Oak Wilt, etc.
Our ISA Certified Arborists will provide the best recommendations to ensure you are able to preserve the trees on your property while enhancing your property with your next construction project.
We have a variety of stump grinding machines that allow us to access just about any stump. We can grind the stump shallow and allow for reseeding with grass or grind the stump deep and wide so that a new tree or other landscaping may be put in the area. Typically, we leave the stump grindings to grade level of the ground, suitable for reseeding with grass. If requested, we can also remove all grindings completely and fill the void with soil.
Cable bracing is used to support structurally weak trees that are susceptible to damage from winds, storms, or even the weight of their own foliage. This support technique uses hardware to make the tree more structurally stable.
When Is Cable Bracing Required?
- Codominant stems with V-crotch and included bark
- Split or crack in a primary limb or lead
- Multi-Stem Trees
Our ISA Certified Arborists will assess and determine the best options available for your tree to ensure it’s structural integrity and safety on your property.
Storms can cause havoc on trees in our urban forest. Damaged or compromised trees can be very dangerous and unpredictable and utilizing professionals is your best option for your and your property’s safety. Our ISA Certified Arborists can assess the damage to your trees and provide the best recommendations for either removing them completely or pruning them so they will be safe to preserve in your landscape.
The time will come when a tree on your property must be removed. Our team of Production Arborists have the skill and expertise to execute any type of removal. We are specialized in removing trees manually or utilzing equipment such as aerial lifts or cranes. We will make the best determination for what your tree needs and ensure it is completed safely, efficiently, and with the least amount of impact to your property.
Signs That Indicate Your Tree May Need To Be Removed:
- Evidence of Root or Stem Decay
- Structurally compromised trees due to cracks, splits, or severe storm damage
- Declining tree representing a hazard to targets below
Utility Vegetation Management
Maintaining safe clearance of above ground and underground utilities is essential for efficient service to homes and businesses. Our utility arborists are skilled in pruning or removing trees for utility service providers and safely ensuring the delivery of their utility services.
Dormant season is defined as the time of the year that trees and plants go dormant for the winter season. This season typically starts at the first frost in Fall and ends after the final frost in later Winter early Spring. Time frame slightly varies from year to year depending on the weather, but typically December through March.
Our Production Arborists work throughout the year when it comes to pruning, removals, cable bracing, and more. The dormant season is the best time of year and recommended time for pruning Oaks and Elms, due to eliminating the risk of spreading fungal disease vectored by insects (Dutch Elm disease, Oak Wilt, Sudden Oak death, etc.).
Other Benefits Of Working In Dormant Season Include:
- Lack of leaf cover and easier to move about the canopy of the tree
- Easier to identify broken and dead branches
- Frozen ground and reduced turf damage
- Service discounts for residential clients
New construction often requires land clearing to make space. Our Production Arborists are equipped with brush mowers, brush cutters, and all of the necessary skills and equipment to remove vegetation to make room for your next construction project.
