Trees are pruned to help preserve their health and appearance. Pruning involves the removal of dead, dying and diseased damaged branches. While pruning we may also remove the excess sucker growth. Overlapping branches are sometimes removed to prevent rubbing and the eventual decay that can cause. It is also desirable to remove live branches to permit air and sunlight penetration through the canopy. We will also prune and reshape your formal landscape plantings to help improve their health, appearance, and manageability.
We specialize in the safe and efficient removal of dead and hazardous trees. We can also help to evaluate your property to determine which, if any trees, may need to be removed due to poor health, root damage, construction or close proximity to structures.
Deep Root Fertilizing
Woodland trees thrive off rotting leaf mold and virgin soil, unfortunately these conditions are not available in formal landscape plantings. In order to remedy this situation supplements are required to maintain the health of and promote vigorous growth in your plantings. Liquid fertilizer is injected throughout the root zone of your trees and shrubs to help improve their vigor. This can be accomplished in the Spring and/or Fall.
Stump Grinding involves the mechanical removal of stumps and above surface buttress roots to approximately 4-6 inches below ground level. Our machinery is self propelled which makes access to almost all locations possible.
Cabling and Bracing
The installation of various cable supports is an inexpensive form of tree insurance and an important part of any complete tree maintenance program. Cables and braces are necessary to help prevent tree failure due to V-Crotch formations, split or weak crotch formations, or the detachment of long and massive branches.
Storm damage involves cleaning up areas left damaged by storms and, where possible, repairing damage that may have occurred to your trees.
We can clear your property for new home site construction or to increase the open space at your present location.
