We Specialize in Tree Removals and Pruning
Our crews have experience in safely removing all types of trees, including those located close to power lines and buildings. While our crews work fast, safety is always a priority and we always follow strict safety guidelines.
Our certified arborists recommend regular tree pruning as it can lower the chance of storm damage by removing dead, dying, or diseased branches that are weak and more apt to break. Pruning also helps a tree develop a strong structure, making it foundationally sturdier and better able to withstand high winds.
Most people have a variety of trees on their property, which may all require different types of trimming to keep them healthy and strong. Oftentimes, more than one type of trimming is necessary.
When our sales team gives an estimate, they’ll listen to your concerns first. Then, they’ll give an expert assessment and discuss the type of tree trimming required to keep your trees and shrubs healthy and safe.
Root Health Care for Healthier Trees
The root mass of a tree is crucial as it's the delivery system for water and nutrients--everything needed to grow healthy and strong. Our Root Health Care services were developed as a holistic approach to restoring the ideal growing conditions for the root mass.
Many trees suffer from the effects of improper mulching. Untrained tree services and landscaping crews make the mistake of pushing mulch up against the base of the tree. This fools the tree into thinking it is deeper underground so it sends out more roots. Over time the new roots can cut nutrient flow off from the rest of the tree.
Similar processes happen when the grade of a landscape is changed or dirt is brought in to cover up exposed roots. To fix this problem, our teams perform a root collar excavation to tree away harmful roots and restore health to the root ball.
If you have a tree that seems to be showing signs of struggle, such as small leaf size, crown dieback, or lack of root flair, contact us for an evaluation. We can advise whether a root zone enhancement or root collar excavation will put it back on the road to recovery.
