Certified Arborists are experts trained in planting, caring for, and maintaining trees. They are certified by the International Society of Arboriculture after passing rigorous certification exams. When dealing with large trees, heights, nearby power lines, and your home - relying on a Certified Arborist who is trained in pruning, removal, and how to best mitigate risks from storm damage is essential.
There are many valuable benefits that come with pruning trees and shrubs around your home. Proper pruning adds to the life of your trees by carefully picking branches to keep which increases structural integrity. Pruning can also have the added benefit of allowing for new growth as dead branches are cleared out. Safety is a factor to consider when deciding if your trees should be pruned. We suggest keeping a careful watch on branches that are near or over your home or power lines in your yard. Proper pruning can also assist in deterring pests and limit other infestations that occur in dead or dying limbs.
Trees provide beauty and add value to your property however sometimes it may, unfortunately, be necessary to remove a tree that has been part of your home for years. Some common causes include damage due to disease, pests, insects, or wind. A certified arborist will inspect your trees and help make the decision on whether or not a tree should be removed. They will then come up with a removal plan that is both safe and efficient. The next step is to complete a full spectrum removal starting with taking down the tree, removing all debris, and following up with stump removal.
Brush chipping refers to the process of removing debris leftover from tree removal or trimming and turning it into wood chips. The chips can then either be used to prevent erosion on-site or removed from the property. Brush chipping both adds usable space to your yard and can make your yard more visually appealing. There are many eco-minded benefits to chipping as well - a few of which include keeping timber waste out of landfills and conserving water in garden beds minimizing evaporation in the summer months.
At a time when heavy winds or severe weather occurs near your home, your trees are the most vulnerable. As a homeowner, fallen limbs or branches can be an incredibly stressful and overwhelming issue to address. Arborists are trained to see potential hazards left in the wake of a storm.
