As Arborists we are charged with the duty of caring for trees and landscape shrubs. Our training and education is very specific so you can be reassured that your trees and shrubs are being cared for properly. Trees have a long life and work that is done on them has lasting effects that is why it is so important to hire an arborist.

Tree Removal is necessary for many reasons. It is also dangerous and should be left to professionals with experience, insurance and equipment. Weather you have an old tree that worries you or would like to have some more space and light on your house or in your yard an arborist can help you come up with a plan for the removal that is safe and has the least impact on the surroundings and then execute that plan for you. 

Tree Pruning will help your trees be a safer, healthier and more aesthetically pleasing part of your landscape. Pruning is necessary for removing dead, dying and hazardous limbs, to increase clearance from buildings, wires, roadways and lawns. Pruning can increase the amount of light and air that moves through the tree and foliage and it can be used to make a tree more aesthetically pleasing. Proper pruning is the most important part of any pruning job. Pruning cuts should not be flush with the trunk, or leave long stubs, or peel the bark down the stem. Pruning should never remove to much of the foliage and never be done by a tree climber using tree climbing spikes.

Tree Cabling is used when a large tree part is in need of supplemental support. Is a structural flaw exists. Some structural flaws are co-dominant stems that display included bark and large limbs that have decay. Cabling is most often used on trees that are of significance to a property and have a potential target i.e. people or buildings or the damage tot the tree due to limb failure would greatly reduce the health and aesthetics of the tree.

Tree Fertilizing is part of proper tree care. Most trees and shrubs will benefit from fertilizing. Soils in and around developed areas are much different from the soils found in a forest. The soils in most developed areas lack the nutrients and organic matter a plant needs to produce optimal foliage and deal with environmental stresses like excessively dry weather, damage, insects and diseases. Soil compaction can be a serious issue leading to decline for trees if they have been left after development or are in an area of heavy motor or even pedestrian traffic. The use of soil injection fertilizing equipment allows us to put the nutrients needed along with water right in the soil where the trees roots can take it up immediately and also provides some aeration at the same time. Healthy soils make safe and healthy Trees!

Stump Grinding completes a tree removal project. Our small self propelled machine is capable of grinding any sized stump in just about any location regardless of accessibility with out landscape disruption. Clean up and removal of stump chips is also available. 

Tree Planting is far to often not carried out with enough thought or care. The trees we plant today leave a lasting and sometimes sizable imprint on the future. The whole process of tree planting from choice of species for the site, the selection of a quality tree from the nursery and  the proper planting of the tree should be planned or preformed by an experienced professional Arborist.
