TREE CARE

Pruning:

Pruning your trees and other woody landscape plants periodically is very important. Pruning can consist of elevation, storm damage removal, dead wooding, structure pruning, and balancing. That's why following ANSI A300 pruning standards is very important. But if you prune a tree improperly it can cause severe and irreparable damage. This is why it is important to have a Certified Arborist perform you tree pruning.

We never recommend "topping" or "tipping" trees, as this can:

- Leave large exposed wounds that can become infested.

- Ruins tree structure.

- Removes too much foliage, disrupting the tree's energy storage.

- Stimulates vigorous new growth, which is prone to breakage.

- Increases tree maintenance costs.

- Destroys a tree's appearance and value.

Instead, crown reduction is the preferred method to reduce the height, size, or weight of a tree, and also reduces the chance for storm damage. Pruning is not only for mature trees and plants; it is extremely important for young ones as well to promote strong and healthy growth early.

Shade Tree Care:

Our shade tree care begins with a pruning program that ensures safety and aesthetics. Trees are evaluated for hazardous limbs, possible failure, growth potential and ways to promote their future health and beauty. We employ certified arborists and tree workers that have proven experience safely executing even the most dangerous and arduous procedures. Shade tree services include dead limb removal, elevation of limbs from houses, buildings and roofs, cabling split leaders, and stabilizing damages resulting from previously injured or topped trees.

Ornamental Pruning:

Properly maintained ornamental shrubs and trees produce brilliant landscape displays that enhance a property's natural beauty. Boxwoods, yews, hollies and ornamental trees are among the species that thrive from a seasonal maintenance program. Our services include, espalier pruning, reducing, shaping and deadwood removal are among other services scheduled seasonally.

Cabling:

Cables provide additional support to tightly forked branches or poorly attached limbs which might otherwise break, particularly in storm events. Cables are installed approximately 2/3rds the way to the top of the limb and are made of high strength steel attached with steel eyebolts. Cables are somewhat ridged and provide support but can compromise the tree's ability to transfer wind energy by swaying. Cables generally last about 20 years before they are outgrown by the tree and older cables may succumb to rust and should be checked periodically, certainly whenever a tree is pruned.

The process of cabling is designed to aid in stabilizing a tree so that it can better withstand the stresses of bad weather and environmental stresses. It is quite important to use a professional ISA approved procedure for cabling, since it is possible to weaken a tree if cables are installed improperly. There are many different way to cable/brace a tree. Every system is designed to meet the specific need of each individual tree.
