Most of us love our trees and hate to see one go. Sometimes diseased or dead trees present no other option but removal. When weak, they can pose a threat to the safety of people and structures near them. Our Arborists understand how to identify potential hazards for a tree removal process. We use our training and experience to determine how to proceed with a removal. A trained tree specialist can mitigate safety hazards involved in the process. Hazardous trees need careful planning and execution for safe removal. Our employees have decades of experience with a mixture of techniques. We use modern practices to perform removal including the use of pulleys.
Tree pruning is the maintenance of internal and external branches. We have skilled tree climbers with decades of experience at the ready. We follow the Standards set forth by the America National Standards Institute (ANSI) A300 standards and (ANSI) Z133.1 safety requirements for tree pruning services. We take the utmost care by not using spikes for pruning. Tree pruning involves the removal of dead, dying and diseased branches throughout the tree. There are many options for pruning so be sure to ask the estimator on the proper course of action. Proper pruning will ensure that your trees be safe and healthy for years to come.
Crown Reduction involves reducing the size of a tree spread and tree height. Crown Reduction helps maintain the structural integrity and natural form. We select choice branches to remove on the top with the goal of lowering the height. This is great for small select ornamental trees and vigorous small trees. We do not perform drastic topping on large trees due to bad effects to the tree's health. Click below on to read more about the difference of crown reduction and tree topping.
When the tree branches become overcrowded or overgrown, the tree may need cleaning. Crown cleaning is our process of cleaning the interior branches of a tree. We can achieve proper structure, increase light penetration and reduce wind damage. While aloft for crown cleaning we also perform a general pruning.
Lower branches of trees will need maintenance to provide clearance underneath. This is both for practical and aesthetic reasons. By removing these lower limbs, we make the area around the tree more open. This may improve the view of your house or landscape. We raise the crown (or canopy) to aid vegetation growth around the tree, but also to give the tree a more uniform look. Tree elevation allows easy pedestrian access under the tree or to prevent children from climbing. Often times there are other concerns, like car clearance over a driveway or street. We are more than able to handle your tree elevating needs.
Tree supplemental support systems are used to provide support when the structural integrity becomes a potential risk. For example, when limbs become overextended or a lead begins to split, a cable or brace is required to mitigate the risk of failure and prolong the life of a tree.
Trees provide significant benefits to our homes and cities. When trees fall and injure people or damage property, they are liabilities. Recognizing and reducing tree hazards reduces the risk of failure.
Our expert staff has decades of experience when working around energized power lines. Proper techniques are vital in this type of tree trimming because mistakes may be deadly. We use a variety of arborist techniques to reduce the risk around power lines. If the power lines are too close, we contact the local power company to shut off the power so we can perform the work. We have done utility tree trimming projects both large and small. Don’t hesitate to call us if you have a tree by power-lines or utilities.
