“Not only did they provide excellent work, but from contact to quote, to scheduling, to completion was top of the line.”Brent G.
Trees are the bedrock of life on earth, since without them to absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen, life wouldn’t exist on this planet. Trees beautify our landscape, and the presence of trees is good for our physical and mental health. Studies have shown that spending time looking at trees or walking in a forest lowers stress and blood pressure.
Caring for your trees should include professional tree care and maintenance. Often, the time of year dictates the tree care services that should be performed. For example, fall is the best time to prune your trees. The trees are going into their dormant phase, and fewer leaves enables tree care professionals to clearly view the structure of the tree.
During tree pruning, attention should be given to:
- Proper branching structure
- Removing dead, diseased, broken, or crowded limbs
- Raising the crown for improved views
- Crown reduction for improved clearance
Pruning and trimming trees should only be done by properly trained and experienced professionals to prevent harm to the tree. An inspection from an ISA-certified arborist can alert you to structural defects, cavities, and other potential hazards. Based on the results of the inspection, a treatment plan can be developed for stressed or diseased trees, and removal may be recommended for a hazardous tree.
The specific tree care and maintenance that is needed will depend on several factors, such as the tree species, overall condition and health, and any issues that need to be addressed. A yearly checkup is important for maintaining the health of your trees and ensuring prompt diagnosis of tree problems, which can help preserve your trees and the natural beauty of your landscape.
Tree Removal May Be Necessary
Of course, tree care focuses on saving sick trees and preventing hazards, and many problems with decay spots and dieback can be resolved. However, when a tree is dead or hazardous, it will need to be removed. A certified arborist with hazardous tree credentials can evaluate the health and stability of the tree to determine the best course of action.
