Trees mark our time and become an important part of our
family memories. By maintaining your trees you increase
your property value. You also keep your utility costs
down by providing shade in the summer and cutting down
winds in the winter. We work hard to help you keep and
maintain your trees to make you safe and them healthy.
|Thinning : By Removing interior growth you allow winds to pass
through the tree freely this helps prevent the tree from uprooting
or blowing over. Thinning also allows the sun to penetrate with
the least amount of obstruction allowing light for plants and lawn.
Deadwood : This is the process of removing branches and limbs
that are rotting or dead. By cutting out these limbs you allow the
tree to heal and stop further damage. You will be less likely to
attract insects and diseases with a healthy tree. It is also a safety
hazard to retain these limbs.
Lateral Reduction : This is when we take the heavier part of the
limb and cut it back to a secondary limb. The purpose of this
reduction is to reduce the weight of the limb. This lightens the
load on the structure of the tree to help prevent stress fractures
and limb loss.
Crown Reduction : We use the lateral reduction method to
reduce the height and size of the tree, while keeping its natural
Topping : Although we do not recommend topping trees, it is
sometimes necessary and a better alternative than taking down a
tree. If you have already topped your tree, you should continue
to do so in order to stop limbs from breaking because the limbs
grow back so fast that they are structurally deficient. Topping is
when we cut back a tree to a node or a lateral, this dramatically
reduces the overall height and shape of the tree.
Elevation : Is when we raise the height of the tree by cutting back
the limb, cutting off the limb or cutting off drooping secondaries.
Conflicting Limbs : When we remove limbs from a house or
wires or limbs that are rubbing together.
Tree Shearing : The purpose of shearing is to shape your tree
and promote fuller growth. This is typically done on ornamental
trees and evergreens, but can be done on some larger trees.
Cavity Work : When trees have holes in them, water can sit in
the holes and promote rot and insect infestation. By filling the
cavity with foam, we can permit the water to run off and not puddle
in the hole. By diverting the water, you can slow or prevent rot.
Making it less likely for insects to make it their home.
Cabling : We can install cables into the main trunks of the trees
providing structural support for the leads. This is done mostly with
multi-lead trees or where you have a possible weakened lead.
Rods in the trunk can be installed to help prevent the leads from
Girdling Roots : These roots choke off your tree and when
they're small we can chop them out.
Root Rot : This is caused by the property grade, poor drainage in
the area around the tree and sometimes gutter run off. We can
sometimes fix this by changing the grade , diverting gutters and
creating a tree well.
Wire Clearance : Your Electric Company will only come out for
problems on their high tension lines. We can clear your wires to
make sure you don't lose service.
Although we do everything possible to save your tree, it is
sometimes necessary to take it down. Sometimes due to
lightning strikes, unstable root structures, girdling roots,
petrification or due to construction projects you are
having done, you may need a tree removed. In any event ,
we can remove your tree quickly and safely.
This is when we grind stumps down 6-8 inches below the
surface of the flush cut. If your tree is mounded, you can
have us grind out the mound. If you have surface roots, you
can also have them ground. Each is a separate service with a
separate charge. If it is not on the estimate, it is not included.
Tree roots that are not at the surface will remain. Stump
grindings are left in the hole on site, but can be removed for
an additional charge. We can grade area, and install topsoil,
seed and straw for a finished lawn.
