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 arborist recommends regular 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.

Root Health Care for Healthier Trees

The root mass of a tree is crucial since it's the delivery system for water and nutrients-- everything a tree needs 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.

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.

Root Zone Enhancements for Healthy Trees

One of the main problems we see affecting trees that were planted and maintained by unqualified companies is root girdling from poor mulching techniques. When mulch is pushed up against the base of a tree in a “mulch volcano,” the tree responds by sending out small roots into the mulch. These small roots can grow into a knot and constrict nutrient transfer from deep roots, slowly killing the tree.

To remedy this problem, we perform a Root Collar Excavation and Root Zone Enhancement. Our tree care workers will use an air spade to excavate shallow roots that are constricting the base of the tree. We will trim problem roots then add a special blend of compost and fertilizer directly to the exposed roots. Finally, a layer of mulch will be properly applied to protect the roots. The result will be a happier, healthier tree that is less susceptible to problems.
