Worried about wind storms causing damage to your property?
You’re not alone as many home and business owners have dealt with trees and broken branches falling on their home or vehicle. Here’s some good news.
Maintenance pruning (also called preventative pruning) can decrease the chance of damage by removing dead, dying or diseased branches that are weak and more apt to break.
Our certified arborist can also spot insect infestation or disease so if you have a tree that’s infected, we can either treat it or remove it before high winds take it down. Why not eliminate problem branches and trees before they can do damage?
You might not know that pruning plays a critical role in younger trees. Regular pruning of a young tree helps it develop a strong structure, making it foundationally sturdier as it grows and better able to withstand high winds.
Stay safe with tree removals by professionals
Tree removal is no small task, especially if the tree is large or in tight quarters with buildings or around power lines. In all cases, safety needs to be a priority so the tree can be brought down without causing damage to property or people.
Our crews always follow strict safely guidelines when working on the job.
- Head, ear and eye protection
- Safety lines used when working 15 feet or more off the ground
- Ropes and rigging equipment used when lowering limbs
- Ground crew use safety devices to control traffic and vehicles
If you need a tree removed, make your life easier by contacting General Tree for a free estimate. Our crews show up on time, work efficiently to take down the tree and always clean up when we’re done.
Root Zone Enhancement for trees
The root mass of a tree is its delivery system for water and nutrients-everything the tree needs to grow healthy and strong.
Our Root Zone Enhancement service was developed as a holistic approach to restore the ideal growing conditions for the root mass.
If you have a tree that seems to be showing signs of struggling, such as small leaf size, crown dieback or lack of root flair, a root zone enhancement may put it back on the road to recovery.
To the pruning crew-Thank you so much for your work! You guys are the best!! I’m so thankful I hired General Tree Service and they sent you. You did a great job!
