Tree & Shrub Pruning
Pruning is the most common tree maintenance procedure. Unlike forest trees, landscape trees need a higher level of care to maintain structural integrity and aesthetics. Pruning must be done with an understanding of tree biology because improper pruning can create lasting damage or shorten the tree’s life.
Trees contribute many benefits to a property including providing shade, reducing erosion, and maintaining privacy. However, with each year, trees become larger and may eventually obscure a desirable view. This is often a concern in resort and coastal areas where homes are built with a view of a mountain, pond, lake, bay or ocean. In these situations, view enhancement is a critical part of maintaining landscape trees. Having a view also increases the value of a property by 20 to 40 percent.
Health & Risk Assessment
Tree health assessments are needed for mature trees that are 20 + years old. This is to keep an eye on their overall health, vigor, structural integrity and their Safe and Useful Life Expectancy.
Support & Bracing
Trees often need some degree of supplemental, physical support to reduce the risk of structural failure of the crown or root system. Cabling, bracing, guying and staking can provide a solution for these tree failures. Tree-support systems help support the tree by limiting the movement of branches, leaders or the entire tree. They can reduce the risk of injury to humans and damage to property by providing supplemental support for structurally weak areas of the tree
During the tree care process, debris left over from tree trimming and removal is turned into wood chips, which can then either be removed from the property or subsequently used in landscaping to prevent erosion. Not only does brush chipping add to the usable space in your yard and make it more visually appealing, but it can actually ensure your home and family are safer in the event of an emergency.
Trees add beauty, increase the value of your home, provide cooling shade and offer shelter for wildlife. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, "One acre of forest absorbs six tons of carbon dioxide and puts out four tons of oxygen. This is enough to meet the annual needs of 18 people." Proper planting is critical to trees survival and long-term success
