Tree Pruning, Shaping and Beautification
Our goal is to improve the trees health or restore its shape through trimming and pruning. Proper pruning improves the health and appearance of trees, prolongs life within the tree and encourages thriving lawn growth beneath it. Through trimming, dead, dying or diseased wood is removed, shape is enhanced and more daylight is provided. We follow the tree-pruning guidelines established and certified by the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA).
Trees are important to our environment both aesthetically and practically. They are important to the air we breathe and the natural visual landscape, but there are times that trees have to be removed due to poor health or landscape design. Using proper techniques and equipment, we can remove trees of all sizes, shapes and in various locations both safely and efficiently.
Cabling and Bracing
Trees may lose their structural integrity due to pests, disease and weather or just from inherent natural flaws that develop with normal tree growth. When these situations arise, cabling and bracing is the answer to help support your tree. Often cabling and bracing will delay indefinitely a costly or aesthetically displeasing tree removal.
Comprehensive Plant Healthcare Program
Our plant healthcare program enhances the maximum vitality, value, and beauty of your landscape. We will tailor a custom program to your existing landscape that monitors your trees and landscape plantings for insect damage, disease, and environmental stress. Any existing conditions will be treated immediately. Harmful insect populations are contained, diseases are stopped or prevented, and environmental stresses are identified before permanent damage occurs. This is a must for any comprehensive property maintenance regimen.
In natural environments, the recycling of nutrients occurs naturally when leaves and organic matter decompose. However, problems do occur when that natural cycle is disrupted. In landscaped settings, trees compete with grass and other types of ground cover. If trees are not naturally replenished with nutrients, nutrient levels are quickly exhausted. Fertilization solves what nature cannot by increasing your trees resistance to drought conditions, insects and fungal diseases, and will ensure that your trees look their best, with fuller, more beautiful tree crowns.
Disease and Pest Infestation Treatment
Trees are like people; they can and do get sick. Trees are susceptible to disease for a variety of reasons, some of which are: pest infestation, old age, root compaction, drought, nutrient deprivation, and neglect. However, there is help. Through our comprehensive program we will evaluate and then prescribe a regimen that will get your tree or trees on the road towards good health and will reccomend a regimen to prevent disease in the first place.
Our goal is to use the least toxic and smallest dose of a prescribed material to effectively control a given problem. In some instances horticultural oil is the only prescription needed to control an issue. Disease prevention and pest infestation is controlled through timely visits to your property on a prescribed schedule that deals most effectively with the particular disease or infestation.
Deer Repellent Spraying
Within the past 50-100 years what was once open meadow or farmland (that’s where all those stonewalls came from) has now become thick new growth forest, an ideal place for deer. Deer have become a persistent threat to a variety of plants and trees, as well as the carrier of the deer tick. We provide a harmless service that encourages deer to find their meals away from your property. We spray a natural material that the deer find offensive to smell and taste and thus ensuring that they dine elsewhere. These sprays will not harm the deer or other animals.
Stumps are an unsightly blemish on an otherwise stately landscape and are, in some instances, dangerous if located in high traffic areas. We grind stumps for a fraction of the cost of digging them out. Once the stump is ground, grass or other ground cover can be put in place, thus eliminating any potential hazard, while beautifying your property.
Trees are cleared and woodlands are selectively cut from your property efficiently and cost effectively by using the latest in chipping and log handling equipment. Woodland beautification improves the look of your property while also improving air flow to other planted things such as lawns, shcrubs and other landscape plantings.
With the latest in land-clearing technologies we provide an efficient and cost effective service for clearing properties to provide for new home construction, increased sunlight, airflow and beautification. Clearing can promote a better environment to highlight speciman trees to ensure healthy and effective tree management on your property.
Complimentary Wood Chips
Aesthetically pleasing natural wood chips are great for controlling weed growth, erosion problems and for a tree that is stressed. Wood chips removed from one property are recycled to another, thus providing a “green” solution for disposal of the chips. Chips by the truckload are offered and delivered free of charge on a first come first serve basis.
