Tree Care Myths Debunked!

Unfortunately, certain tree myths lurk in the minds of many homeowners. Today we’re taking a look at some of the most pervasive (but completely untrue) myths about tree care.

Myth #1: Tree Topping Reduces Fall Hazard, while Improving the Health of Struggling Trees.
The Truth: Tree topping is deadly for all trees. Period. In reality, chopping off the top of a tree causes more hazard danger, since new growth is often poorly attached. Moreover, tree topping significantly reduces a tree’s ability to take in energy, making it more susceptible to disease and infestation.

Myth #2: Tree Pruning Always Causes Trees & Bushes to Grow More Vigorously.
The Truth: Tree trimming spurs local growth, but you must also consider that cutting away foliage means that the tree has less ability to photosynthesize, and therefore less capacity to take in energy for all life processes. Effective tree pruning strikes a balance between spurring new growth and maintaining leaf area. Severe/novice trimming can cause serious damage to a tree.

Myth #3: Tree Cavities Should be Filled with Concrete, for Improved Healing.
The Truth: Filling a tree hole with concrete used to be considered wise. The thinking was that filling them with concrete could strengthen weakened trees. However, we now know that this practice causes serious harm. While a filled tree moves with the wind, the concrete column inside stays immobile, causing abrasion. This increases decay and invites disease.

Myth #4: Branches will Always Grow Back, so It Doesn’t Really Matter Where You Cut Them Off.
The Truth: Limbs do not grow back in the same spot. Random, thoughtless pruning can cause permanent damage. Tree trimming is an art and a science that should be left to a professional.

Myth #5: Newly Planted Trees Should Always Be Staked.
The Truth: Staking is a species-by-species consideration. Species that need structural support to stay upright will indeed benefit from stakes. However, you can actually limit strength by staking trees that are able to stand on their own. Staking is necessary in areas of high wind, and when the tree needs help staying upright. Always remove stakes once the tree is strong and established.

Myth #6: Old, Diseased Branches will Come Down on Their Own, So We Don’t Need to Worry About It.
The Truth: Yes, unhealthy branches will eventually fall—but they are a real hazard, as one can never know which storm will cause a limb to come crashing to the ground (or onto your roof, onto your pet, onto your car, etc.). It’s smart to be concerned about the dead branches in your trees. Rather than waiting for tragedy to strike, call an expert arborist to discover whether pruning or tree removal is your best (safest) option.
This is only a handful of the dozens of tree myths in circulation today. Rather than depending on the old wives tales you hear about trees, it’s best to contact a professional arborist with your questions. Don’t trust the rumors you hear about tree health. Contact a professional arborist for reliable, accurate information.

How To Tell If A Tree Is Dead

Are you concerned that a certain tree in your yard may be a rotting hazard? This is a valid preoccupation, as infected, unhealthy trees are more likely to fall during inclement weather. Read on to discover the clues that your tree is sick and/or dying. If you spot these signs on your tree(s), call us. We can dispatch a professional arborist to help with tree healing or removal.

A visual inspection can tell you a lot about the health of your trees. Lack of leaves or a reduction in the amount of leaves in one area of the tree can be a sign that something is wrong. The same is true for open wounds or soft spots. Also look for signs of fungus or rot. Finally, notice any cracks or cracking in the bark. If the tree shows structural problems, such as branches splitting apart, there’s a good chance disease has taken hold.

A quick mnemonic device for inspecting trees is to look for “The three D’s.” Arborists look for tree tissue that is Damaged, Diseased, or Dead. If you find any of these symptoms it might be best to call a professional to figure out the cause of the problem and what you can do to solve it.

The twig test. You can learn a lot from inspecting a twig. For one thing, you can break the twig to see how it feels. If the wood is green the tissue is still alive. You can also use your pruning shears to scratch the bark off and inspect the wood. If the wood is dark and brittle, it is dead. However, once you check one twig you might consider looking around and inspecting different parts of the tree to determine its overall health.

Keep it clean! Be sure to practice proper pruning techniques; making an incorrect cut can leave the tree open to infection. When you are done performing the twig test, remember to cleanly cut off any branches you have broken off. You don’t want to attract more diseases and pests by leaving broken branches behind. In addition, you are going to want to remove damaged, diseased, or dead wood as quickly as possible. We suggest calling for professional tree removal. Homeowners generally lack the in-depth knowledge required to effectively heal or remove diseased trees.

Infection and Old age. Tree threats include infection from tree diseases, insect pests, and old age. As an example, the fungus anthracnose can be a problem, as it thrives in the wet weather, and its spores spread in the wind. This disease causes discoloration in the leaves, and there may be some defoliation as well, especially if the tree is stressed. In addition to hardwood trees such as sycamores and oaks, Pacific Northwest Dogwoods and Japanese Maples are susceptible to anthracnose. This is just one of dozens of potential diseases that could be attacking your trees. For an accurate diagnosis of a diseased or dying tree, it’s best to call the “tree doctor” (i.e., a professional arborist).

Age can’t be helped and some trees live longer than others. Some ornamental fruit trees may only have a life expectancy of twenty-five to thirty years, while trees such as Giant Sequoia and Douglas Fir may live for hundreds of years.

Call for Help. The average person is only going to be able to do so much. You can certainly work on controlling the cultural conditions to a certain degree, and you can always perform a visual inspection. If you have the proper tools and training, a certain amount of pruning and ground level maintenance is possible. But a tree care professional or arborist is going to know more about why a tree or shrub might be sick or dying, and they will be educated about the proper way to handle the problem. Finally, our professional arborists can inform you on how to improve the soil and other environmental conditions. Don’t put yourself (literally) “out on a limb” flailing at a job that is too large to handle yourself.

Things To Consider When Removing A Tree

What are your goals for both the tree and your yard? It can be helpful to prioritize your goals. For example, if you have a tree next to your home that causes safety concerns but you really love how it looks and the shade it provides, you can rank your priorities like this:

  • Safety
  • Shade
  • Appearance

You can even get more specific regarding what exactly you like about the tree’s appearance or what your top safety concerns are. If yours is a rental property, you might have completely different goals, such as reducing maintenance and liability worries.

If you simply have a tree that you don’t like, it’s also important to think about why you dislike the tree. For example, does it drop too much sap in the summertime, making your deck a sticky, unusable mess? Even in a case like that, there are alternatives. For example, rather than spending several thousand dollars removing the tree, property owners might consider a several-hundred-dollar treatment to prevent aphids, which are often the actual culprits in sap production. (Aphids feed on sap and secrete “bug poo, aka honeydew.”)

What are your options? Be super clear with your arborist about your goals so that they can help you achieve them and/or suggest other options. For example, it may be better to prune a tree rather than remove it. Of course, it’s possible that the opposite is the best course of action: a property owner may want to prune a tree that should actually be removed. If the customer’s goal is to eliminate branches overhanging the house, reduce the height of the tree, or stop a tree from uplifting concrete, there are many cases where the only true answer to those problems is tree removal.

We don’t necessarily like to cut down healthy trees, but trees are renewable; they can be replanted. In many cases, it’s better to remove a tree and start over with the right tree in the right location. Plus, delaying the inevitable can increase the cost of tree removal.

In any case, you can ask questions and get answers by contacting a certified arborist for options!

3. What does the law say? The ultimate decision to remove a tree may not be up to you — even if it’s on your property. In many cases, the final word is provided by the city via a tree removal permit process.

For example, our hometown, has an urban tree canopy that is among the country’s most admired. Cities are active and often aggressive in monitoring the tree canopy, and unpermitted tree removals can incur fines in the thousands of dollars.

What happens to the removed tree? We work hard to provide tree services in the area, that work best for our clients, the community, and the environment. Every part of the removed tree is recycled and/or reused. The wood is either milled into lumber or used as firewood, and wood chips can be used as mulch to help fight invasive plants and to rebuild native habitats. UFP donates most of this material to nonprofits and various municipalities.

Storm Damage Tree Removal: Watch Us in Action!

As tree removal experts, we’re highly attuned to each maelstrom that tears through the Rose City. Each gust makes us wonder how many gargantuan trees will be sent tumbling onto driveways, roadways, and roofs. Fallen trees threaten structures and pose safety hazards. While we don’t relish the sight of a beautiful tree pulled up from its roots, or broken at the trunk, we do enjoy setting things right through expert, informed tree removal. Today we’re sharing a time lapse video showing how we removed a large oak tree that fell during a storm.

This tree was a grand oak. Judging from the tree’s outward appearance, it seemed healthy and strong. The owners had provided proper care. However, this particular oak had hidden root issues. A storm in mid-March sent powerful gusts through, and knocked the oak down onto the home. Oaks are not especially prone to falling, but then again large trees are always more likely to tumble during a storm. Unfortunately, the fallen tree wreaked havoc on the roof; it caused major structural damage, and a modest amount of rain seeped inside, causing water damage inside. We arrived at first light the morning after the storm. Our exceptional relationships with local crane companies allowed us to arrange for a crane to take the tree off the roof. Once the fallen oak was safely removed, the home’s roof was patched, allowing the homeowner to arrange repairs according to his own time schedule.

After the Storm: What to Do When Storms Damage Your Trees

There are a few preventative arboreal issues you can address prior to a serious storm. First, train yourself to recognize problem trees. Dead limbs, leaning trunks, and branches that cross paths with nearby hazards (think power lines) are indications that a tree is more likely to fall in a storm. Fungal growth signifies disease. Such vulnerable, sick trees have a higher chance of falling during storms.

If you’re unsure that a tree is safe, steer clear! Call a certified arborists for further guidance.

Prevention is the best approach to prevent fallen trees, but as in the case of the oak, trees are not 100% unpredictable, and occasionally a tree that appears healthy will fall in a storm. In such cases, it’s best to contact a professional tree removal service as soon as possible.

Storm Damage Tree Removal by Urban Forest Pros

As certified arborists, we are passionate about all aspects of tree care, including cleaning up storm damage. As a full-service arborist firm, we are capable of removing any fallen tree, no matter how big, or how precariously situated. We have removed hundreds of trees over the years, for dozens of reasons (storm damage, disease, the tree is too big for the space, etc.). Safety is always our first priority. We follow ANSI-approved rigging standards to keep every branch and trunk within our control as it falls. Once the tree is down, we chip and recycle the branches and other debris; larger pieces of wood can be cut into rounds and left on your property, or removed (for an additional fee). Rarely, the felled timber may be valuable enough for resale; in those circumstances we can help you arrange a sale to wood recyclers. The cost for tree removal varies widely according to multiple factors, including local tree removal permitting costs. Contact us today to get a consultation and determine whether the trees surrounding your home are an asset or a liability in the next storm.

So You Suffered Tree Damage, Now What?

Recent storms have left many trees in a sad state. High winds and ice storms often break branches, opening the tree to disease. Moreover, maelstroms may knock down entire trees—as one unfortunate cyclist recently learned in downtown, when a tree fell on her. In this post, we take a look at what to do if your trees have suffered storm damage. We also discuss how to spot hazard trees—those that are liable to fall in upcoming inclement weather. Finally, we talk about how to prevent damage in future storms.

Tree Damage and Storms. High winds may damage trees, especially older specimens and those with large crowns. When inspecting trees for damage after a storm, be extremely cautious. Look out for downed power lines—if you see downed wires, stay at least 30 feet away, and notify the power company. Additionally, if a branch is dangling precariously, contact an arborist. ISA certified arborists have the tools and expertise to safely remove hanging limbs. In addition to post-storm pruning, Urban Forest Pro’s arborists can provide tree removal.

Trees do have a remarkable ability to heal, and some damage is inevitable. For trees with light damage, first aid measures are available. If major limbs or upward leader branches are broken, it will be harder for the tree to respond, and it may not be able to survive. If most of the branches are broken, or the upward leader limb has been severed, it will be very difficult for the tree to respond in a positive way, and it will most likely require removal by certified arborists.

Proper Care. The best way to prevent storm damage is to provide proper care throughout the year. Tree services can prune away weakened limbs that are likely to fall in a storm. Homeowners can care for their trees through consistent observation. Regularly inspect your trees and identify any dead, damaged, or diseased portions. The growth pattern should also be inspected. Is the tree top-heavy, or does it have a lot of crossing branches? If so, it may need to be thinned so that more light and air can pass through the canopy.

Signs of Hazardous Trees. It’s relatively easy to spot a hazardous tree. Here are a few warning signs to look for.

  • Dead limbs should be identified and removed immediately.
  • Check for leaning trees. Even without high winds, leaning trees can be a hazard to your home and family.
  • You don’t want limbs too close to power lines; six feet is the suggested distance from power lines and buildings. Trust trimming near power lines to professionals. 
Our previous post has more information on how to recognize tree hazards.

Preventing Damage. Pay attention for signs of disease or excessive fungal growth. A diseased tree is more likely to fall in a storm. Additionally, if a tree has been “topped,” it may be susceptible to falling or breakage in high winds. Extremely soggy soil conditions can also have detrimental effects, so you observe this on your property, aim to figure out what is causing the soggy soil in the first place. Our technicians can help you create a healthy environment for your trees, and decrease the chance of storm damage.

Call us. If you are unsure for any reason about the health, vitality, or condition of a damaged tree, please give us a call. We would be happy to schedule a consultation visit, and you can rest assured that you will receive high-quality tree trimming or pruning service by licensed and insured professionals.

The First 5 Things To Do When A Tree Falls On Your House

It’s something you hope never happens, but in a city and area renowned for its trees, sooner or later a tree may fall on your house. What you do next in the pursuit of emergency tree service is crucial. In order of importance, here are the 5 things to do if a tree ever falls on your house.

1. If the area has foot or road traffic, rope off or block off the area to limit the risk of someone getting injured by the hazardous tree. Whatever you have on hand is better than nothing. This terrible situation is only made worse by someone getting hurt on your property. Also think about putting a sign on the doors inside your home to prevent anyone from forgetting and using the affected exits.

2. From a distance observe if your power lines are involved. If they are it might be advisable to either turn off your power or at least unplug any expensive electronics. Most modern electronics are surge protected now so this is less of a factor but it is still something to consider. You might want to call the power company as well to alert them to the issue.

3. Take a few pictures from a safe distance with your phone. If the tree service company you contact can see the whole tree in the frame that is much more effective then something close up.

4. Call a local tree service that provides emergency tree service. The company will likely ask you for the photos so they can assess the situation. Tree services that provide emergency service should be able to dispatch someone to examine the damage in about thirty minutes. Once that person arrives they should be able to dispatch a crew in approximately another thirty minutes, even on the weekends or holidays. Sometimes extreme weather causes these times to increase. Speed is an important factor in limiting water damage to the interior of your home in our rainy climate.

There is no need to get an estimate for the emergency tree service work to be performed as tree service companies who routinely deal with these sorts of calls will usually bill your insurance company directly at an hourly rate. This is preferred as they take on the liability for collecting their fee from the insurance company and only require your cooperation in providing information to the insurance company.

Companies who don’t handle it this way might give you a bid which you decide to accept. However, when your insurance agency only agrees to pay a portion of the invoice, that same tree service company is nowhere to be found. Now you’re left with the difficult work of trying to recoup your funds.

5. Call your homeowners insurance and open a claim. There is no reason to avoid doing this because homeowner’s insurance rates are not affected by this type of claim. Additionally, this type of emergency tree service work is very dangerous and thus very expensive. You will need to get the following information from your insurance company:

  • Claim number
  • Your adjuster’s name, phone number, and email.

Having a tree falls on your house can be a traumatic event. Following these steps can help mitigate the damage caused in both the short-term and long-term.

What To Do When A Tree Falls On Your House Or Property

Snowstorms, rain storms, wind storms – they make the news, can disrupt our lives, and occasionally knock down trees. And when they do, the safest thing to do is call a tree service company experienced in emergency tree removal. If you haven’t dealt with a fallen tree before, or even if you have, here are the steps you should take if a tree has fallen on your property or home.

Neighbor’s Tree Fell on My House

It doesn’t usually matter whose tree it was, what matters is whose property it is on now. That is the person who will be responsible for hiring a tree service and paying for the tree work or arranging payment through their insurance.

If your tree fell on your neighbor’s property it is their problem and vice-versa. That being said, a good neighbor should not have to take complete responsibility for what is generally considered an act of god. Most neighbors will likely do what they can to make the situation right with their affected neighbors.

Making it right could mean splitting or taking care of any out of pockets costs your neighbor has regarding this work. This is especially a good idea if they have mentioned their concerns about the tree to you before.

Who to Call When a Tree Falls in the Road

If the area has foot or road traffic, rope off or block off the area to limit the risk of someone getting injured by the hazardous tree. Whatever you have on hand is better than nothing. This terrible situation is only made worse by someone getting hurt on your property. Also, think about putting a sign on the doors inside your home to prevent anyone from forgetting and using the affected exits.

Check the Power Lines

From a distance observe if your power lines are involved. If they are it might be advisable to either turn off your power or at least unplug any expensive electronics. Most modern electronics are surge protected now so this is less of a factor but it is still something to consider. You might want to call the power company as well to alert them to the issue.

Call in a Professional

Call a local tree service company that provides emergency tree service. The company will likely ask you for the photos so they can assess the situation. Tree services that provide emergency service should be able to dispatch someone to examine the damage in about thirty minutes. Once that person arrives they should be able to dispatch a crew in approximately another thirty minutes, even on the weekends or holidays. Sometimes extreme weather causes these times to increase. Speed is an important factor in limiting water damage to the interior of your home in our rainy climate.

There is no need to get an estimate for the emergency tree service work to be performed as tree service companies who routinely deal with these sorts of calls will usually bill your insurance company directly at an hourly rate. This is preferred as they take on the liability for collecting their fee from the insurance company and only require your cooperation in providing information to the insurance company.

Companies who don’t handle it this way might give you a bid which you decide to accept. However, when your insurance agency only agrees to pay a portion of the invoice, that same tree service company is nowhere to be found. Now you’re left with the difficult work of trying to recoup your funds.

Fallen trees are very dangerous! Even trees that look like they have fallen may be under great pressure and thus are extremely dangerous. It’s no joke – leave the emergency tree removal and clean up to the professionals. That neighbor of your who swears he is skilled with a chainsaw and can handle it for you? Really not a good idea. The one thing that can make this already bummer of a situation worse is a trip to the hospital.

What Is An Arborist And Why Might You Need One?

Arborists and other tree care professionals are certified through the International Society of Arboriculture at a number of levels. This organization trains and certifies professionals in order to carefully and expertly grow, care for, and research trees for many different purposes. You are probably familiar with landscaping professionals, but may find yourself wondering what makes arborists different, and whether you need one to maintain your property. Here’s some helpful info on arborists and why you might need one.

What is an Arborist?

Arborists can be educated at many different levels. Some arborists will have higher degrees for particular tree research purposes, and others will have less (or no) formal education outside of their ISA certifications. Either way, arborists are tree professionals that you will trust with health and safety on your property, so it’s important to examine their qualifications, experience, and references carefully. Arborists provide crucial tree services that not only benefit your property, but in many cases, keep your family safe from large and high-risk trees. Regardless of your landscaping needs, it’s important to find a reputable arborist for tree service you can trust.

Tree Roots

Soil doesn’t always have enough organic matter in it to help promote tree growth. This becomes especially problematic because plant roots need oxygen to survive. Excessive rain can fill up those pore spaces within your soil and this leads to tree roots suffocating and dying. Once those roots begin to suffer, it prevents trees from getting water whatsoever. Believe it or not, too much rain can be just about as bad as a severe drought.

Planting Trees

One great way to add beauty to your property is by planting trees. Trees add shade and beauty to your property, which can allow you to enjoy your landscaping and outdoor spaces more. Arborists can help you plant and maintain beautiful, healthy trees that will add beauty and value to your property for years to come. Healthy, well-maintained trees can even benefit the health of your landscaping by helping to prevent soil erosion over time through deep and strong tree roots. When it comes to planning your landscaping, a reliable arborist can help you find the perfect balance of plantings to suit your needs.

Assessing Risk

Arborists are also important for assessing and maintaining high-risk trees on your property. This is especially true for large trees close to buildings and outdoor living spaces. Falling tree limbs can be dangerous, potentially causing injury to family or guests, or costly damage to your home. Finding an arborist you can trust is key to preventing injuries and damage, as well as making sure your landscaping is healthy and well-maintained. It’s also a good idea to find an arborist with excellent communication skills who can help you better understand the needs of your trees and property.

2 Big Tree Myths: Busted

When it comes to keeping trees on your property, the right care and maintenance is crucial to keep your trees healthy and your home safe from any falling hazards. Trees can be a great addition to any property, adding value to any landscaping design and bringing an idyllic quality to your curb appeal. But without the help of a professional arborist, many homeowners find themselves misinformed about proper tree care. In order to care for your trees and keep them healthy throughout their life, make sure to stay well-informed about tree care and partner with a reputable arborist in your area to avoid making some common tree care mistakes. Here are just 2 of the biggest myths that homeowners tend to hear about tree care.

1. Only Trim Your Trees in the Fall

Many homeowners, avid gardeners included, may be unfamiliar with the process of tree pruning. So when a homeowner receives the common advice that you should only trim your trees in the fall, it’s no wonder why they would follow that rule. However, this is actually a myth. While the fall is the best time to trim trees because the tree is dormant, there are plenty of other occasions where it is appropriate to trim trees. For example, it’s fine to trim a tree in the spring or summer if it has been several years since the tree was last pruned. In fact, this is a good way to avoid falling limbs that can pose a serious danger to you, your family, or your pets. Tree trimming is also a great way to get your landscaping looking its best and boost curb appeal in time for showings if you are planning to sell.

2. Ivy is Harmless and Looks Great

While climbing plants can grant a charming look to a garden pergola or lattice fence, it’s a myth that ivy won’t harm your trees. Actually, ivy can effectively choke trees by climbing the trunk and growing out of control, preventing the tree from getting necessary sunlight and water, while also drawing additional insects to prey on the trees. In fact, there are many species of invasive ivy in the Maryland area that can seriously harm your trees. Tree care can be more complicated than many homeowners believe, so it’s a good idea to partner with a reputable arborist to keep the trees on your property healthy and safely maintained.

What Indicates That A Tree On Your Property Is Dangerous?

Falling trees can be a greater safety hazard than most homeowners realize. Whether you have a large property covered with trees or a few large ones near your house, it’s important to keep an eye on your trees and make sure they don’t pose a safety risk to your family, pets, or guests. A professional arborist can help by assessing the risks of any trees on your property and properly maintaining them to avoid falling trees or limbs. Here are our tips for spotting indicators that a tree on your property may be dangerous.

Inspect the Overall Tree

A good place to start is by finding a position where you can see the whole tree, top to bottom. Use this vantage point to determine whether the tree is leaning to one side or another, and spot any possible dead limbs hanging from the branches. These are signs that your tree may be unhealthy or posing a safety hazard on your property. It’s especially important to contact an arborist if you notice a large, dead limb hanging from your tree, as these can be extremely dangerous.

The Ground

The next step is to examine the ground. After all, the foundation of any tree’s health is the root system. There are two main types of tree roots that keep the tree healthy, fed, and structurally sound. There are anchoring roots, which are strong structural support for a tree, and absorbing roots, which are responsible for absorbing nutrients from the soil. If the anchoring roots are rotting or decaying, this can make the tree unstable and dangerous. Try to pull back any ivy or ground cover that may be hiding the visible roots and check for rotting at the base of the tree.

The Trunk

Next, inspect the tree trunk. It’s important that the trunk is strong and stable in order to support the weight of the canopy. Look for cracks or cavities that could pose structural problems for your tree. These can be signs of splitting and cracking that can result in your tree falling or breaking apart in a dangerous manner.

The Canopy

It’s crucial to look for dead wood in your tree’s canopy. This is one of the surest signs of an unhealthy, dangerous tree. During storms, these trees will be more likely to drop large, dangerous branches or even fall down on your property.

The Top Signs That Trees May Be Sick

If a tree on your property is diseased, it can pose a problem for your property. After all, diseased and weakened trees can be a safety risk, especially during the winter months or periods of inclement weather. It’s important to keep an eye on the trees on your property in order to make sure there are no health or safety hazards posing a risk to your family, friends, and neighbors. If a tree on your property is sick, it will require the proper tree care in order to prevent safety issues and encourage healthy plant growth on your property. Here are the top signs that your trees may be sick.

Shelving

If you have oak trees on your property, it’s a good idea to routinely check the tree’s base for fungal growth. There is a common type of fungus that affects oak trees by stunting branch growth and causing the tree to weaken. To spot this fungus, look for brown shelves along the base of the tree. If you spot this shelving, be sure to call a tree care professional, as the tree can be in danger of falling soon after the warning signs are visible.

Mildew

Mildew can be a problem for just about any type of tree. This will often develop after periods of high humidity as spots of powdery white spots. Mildew is often a sign of disease in trees that can distort the shape of leaves and stunt the tree’s growth.

Fluid Seepage

One sure sign of disease in a tree is seepage of slime-like fluid. Check your trees for pools of slimy liquid at the base or dark streaks along the bark. These can be signs that your tree is seeping fluid and may require professional tree care.

Discolored Leaves

While many of us look forward to the colors of leaves changing in the fall, this can also be a sign that your trees are sick. Look for green leaves turning yellow or brown during the summer months, as this can be a sign that a tree is suffering from root rot.

Peeling Bark

Bark is the tree’s outermost layer of protection from the elements. This can keep your tree safe from boring insects or harsh weather, so peeling bark or bare patches on your tree can be a sign that the tree is vulnerable. Have trees with peeling bark inspected to ensure they are healthy.

What Elements Of Tree Care Do You Need To Make A Priority?

Adding a tree or two (or three or four…) can add some extra greatness to your property. You get some more shade, additional privacy, and it even makes your home look a bit nicer than it otherwise would. Trees are also important in creating healthy, fresh oxygen, which are useful in making the entire neighborhood feel brighter and nicer. With this in mind, it’s also important that we understand just how to keep our trees healthy and safe. Make sure you’re always staying on top of these tree care tasks to keep your trees in tip top shape.

Pruning Your Trees

Pruning your trees is an essential element of good tree care. It keeps them healthy, strong, and helps them grow properly. It’s important that you do this to help secure your trees during severe weather events and to make sure that everyone in the vicinity is safe. Otherwise, tree limbs left unpruned can end up causing a lot of damage and are much more likely to break off. All of this aside, pruning is also just a part of keeping your trees looking well-maintained and healthy, contributing to their natural beauty.

Fertilizing

Fertilizing your trees can be a big part of encouraging growth, particularly for young or new trees. Figuring out the correct balance between watering enough and applying fertilizer will help encourage the right kind of growth that any tree owner wants to see. If you’re unsure of how much you should fertilize, contact your tree professional or do some additional research into whatever species of tree you’re dealing with.

Maintain Safety

Branches that are dead, or on their way there, are a serious hazard. In a storm situation, those branches could come flying off and end up damaging your home or, worse yet, seriously injuring someone. Removing those branches before they become an issue at all is generally the best route to take. Keep in mind that in the instance a branch does come down, an insurance company will likely not cover any damages because homeowners are responsible for the upkeep of their own trees. Trimming trees also increases the value of a home in the sense that a well-maintained tree is less of a risk.

Treating Pests and Diseases

When it comes to proper tree care, few things are quite as important as looking out for diseases. It’s not something many of us think about but it’s critical to keeping trees alive. Most trees end up passing away from pests or diseases rather than just dying of old age. Look out for any warning signs and contact your professional tree care service if you notice anything of note.

Why Tree Planting Can Completely Change The Atmosphere Of Your Property

Trees are an essential piece of any residential piece of land. They are crucial in many ways more than one, for both the effects they provide for the environment and for the aesthetically pleasing visuals they offer. Whether you prefer oak, pine, or spruce trees, there are many benefits of tree planting around your property.

Wide Range of Species and Visually pleasing

Since there are so many different kinds of trees available to plant and grow, there is a variety of trees for homeowners to consider. This allows for endless possibilities of astounding combinations of colorful trees in one’s front lawn or backyard. Many tree species offer striking autumnal foliage in shades of fiery oranges, deep reds, golden yellows, and firm greens. What’s a better feeling then landscaping with a range of colorful trees to spruce up your property’s appearance? Tree planting

Nature’s Privacy

Another good reason to consider tree planting is for the form of privacy it can provide to you and your property. Picking out the appropriate species of trees for your property can provide you with an outstanding kind of privacy and noise buffer. This is great if you have noisy neighbors and would love to relax a bit outside. Some of the ideal tree species for seclusion would be larger species, such as the fern pine, oak tree, or Japanese loquat.

Environmentally Friendly for All

Tree planting isn’t just good for you, it’s also good for the planet. Other than increasing biodiversity, trees play a huge role in many ecological functions. This includes photosynthesis, aka when trees absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Too much carbon dioxide in the atmosphere speeds up the process of climate change, so the more trees, the better. Trees also help ease the effects of an urban heat island. In urban areas with a high proportion of paved areas and buildings, warmer temperatures tend to be made even more extreme in the absence of trees. Trees help these environments by making them less prone to higher temperatures. So if you decide to plant some trees, you’re helping out the planet, what’s not to like?

Long-term Value

Tree planting is another excellent long-term term investment if you ever want to move out. Why you may ask? Well, trees add an economical advantage towards homeowners and real estate buyers. Trees increase property value due to people appreciating the shade, air quality improvements, and overall personality that fully-grown trees give to a property.

Questions To Ask Yourself Regarding Commercial Tree Removal Services

Trees are lovely additions to any piece of land. However, they can also cause many problems in certain situations. Trees are one of the most common obstacles encountered when planning, developing, rezoning, and building structures on a new piece of land. If there’s trees on your property that seem like a burden, take time to consider which trees you need to remove and why. Not all trees need to be removed, so the choice you make to remove them must be strongly considered. Here are a few questions to ask yourself about commercial tree removal services to keep in mind.

Why Consider Commercial Tree Removal Services?

When commercial development is involved, most of the trees on a given piece of land should be removed for any future owners of the property. They may not seem like it at first glance, but trees can grow into dangerous hazards that could cost foundation problems, roof damage, pavement cracking, and many other issues that can be avoided easily by clearing the land altogether.

When Is It Okay to Clear My Land Completely?

You might be wondering when does it make sense to consider commercial tree removal services for my property? And the answer is easy. Trees can potentially require excessive pruning when they’re adjacent to buildings. They might also need special landscaping that accommodates the maximum size that the tree will grow. Some trees might even require that you put up unique concrete barriers to make sure that their roots don’t invade underground water and electrical pipes. These can cause serious problems, even from a younger tree that has just begun to spread its roots.

Concerning the Functions of the Trees

You might be worried about the possible effects that commercial tree removal services can have on the surrounding environment. Trees do have important natural functions in some cases but do not outweigh the dangers that trees can possess the older they get. While it’s true that trees do convert carbon dioxide into oxygen, so do several other green plants like grass and flowers. The removal of one tree can be corrected with a large amount of other green foliage. One other primary function of trees is soil erosion prevention. The threat of soil erosion should only be minimal in a commercial environment due to the massive amounts of paved areas. Soil erosion can be prevented even more by the use of retaining walls for sloped areas and the presence of green plants – like grass.

The Many Benefits Of Stump Grinding

Is your yard cursed by one or more unpleasant looking tree stumps? If so, you should strongly consider stump grinding to tidy up your yard. Stump grinding is a tree removal service that eliminates unwanted stumps after a tree has died, fallen, or been cut. Many tree removal and landscaping companies offer stump grinding services, and there are many reasons why this service would benefit you and your lawn.

Aesthetically Pleasing and More Space

If you prefer a tidy lawn with neat hedges and incredible landscaping, then an ugly tree stump won’t be doing your yard any favors. Stump grinding can change all of that. The service is affordable and can vastly improve the look of your lawn while also increasing its value. Stump grinding makes more sense, especially if you have a smaller yard, as a tree stump can take up a large amount of space above ground and even more below. Once a tree stump is removed, you then have room for all kinds of activities and garden features such as a flower bed, hedges, tables, chairs, or even a pond. The possibilities are endless.

Safety and Convenience

Tree stumps can be a serious inconvenience when it comes to mowing your lawn. Having to navigate around them is troublesome, and accidentally hitting them can do severe damage to your lawnmower. Tree stumps can also be a trip hazard for your yard, which is even more dangerous for children living in your home. If a neighbor or guest were to trip over one of these stumps, you could face a serious lawsuit for their injuries. Stump grinding removes all of these problems for you.

Evading Unwanted Pests and Growth

Whenever a tree stump is left behind, it can potentially cause new trees to pop up around it. Usually, new growth from tree stumps can create a cluster of tinier trees to grow around at its base. Other than being unpleasant to look at, this group of younger trees can also damage any nearby plants because they also absorb nutrients and water from the soil. Tree stumps are also home to many pests. This includes termites, ants, beetles, and wood borers. You run the risk of those pests making their way into your home if you don’t take proper action. Stump grinding can eliminate any pests or unwanted trees that might pop up.

How An Expert Tree Removal Service Can Assist With A Tree Struck By Lightning

All across the planet, lightning strikes millions of times per day. Each bright bolt poses a severe threat to nearby trees, and sometimes our treasured plants can suffer well after a storm has passed by. Lightning can injure trees so bad that they might need the assistance of an expert tree removal service, depending on the circumstances. Here’s a few pieces of advice on what to do if your tree was struck by lightning.

My Trees Been Struck, Now What?

First and foremost, if there are any hanging or broken branches, these should be removed as soon as possible. If they’re too big for you to remove yourself, call out a certified expert from an expert tree removal service to do the job. Lightning damage also warrants a proper tree inspection. It’s hard to say if your tree will or won’t recover from a lightning strike, so it’s usually best to get an arborist’s expert opinion.

Signs Your Tree Was Struck By Lightning

The tricky thing about any potential lighting damage is that it can be very subtle, if not unnoticeable. Lightning strikes the inside of your tree, targeting the thick layer underneath the bark that we’re unable to see. So it’s not terribly uncommon for a tree to look entirely normal for days or even weeks and then steadily decline. However, sometimes, the internal damage does affect the outer layers of your tree. If this is the case, lightning damage looks like:

  • A slit or crack that runs down the tree’s trunk.
  • Chunks and pieces of park stripped off the tree.
  • Sparse leaves, or wilted leaves around the tree.
  • Blackened or burned areas of bark.

Can My Tree Die if Struck by Lightning?

You might be wondering if your tree is dead the minute it’s been struck, but it could survive. The fate of your tree depends on multiple factors – such as its health, species, location, and age. The consensus is that if your tree was only struck on one side of its trunk, it has a good chance at survival. But if both sides are damaged, you’ll likely need some assistance from an expert tree removal service.

How to Protect Against Lightning?

The best way to protect against lightning damage is with a lightning protection service. Just be cautious, as no system is 100% guaranteed to prevent any damage, so make sure to consult with an arborist or expert tree removal service if you’re interested.

Reasons To Consider Expert Tree Removal Services

Having a tree removed from your property isn’t something most homeowners think about until something terrible has happened, like a large branch falling onto your car or a tree splitting in half due to harsh weather conditions. When these things occur, you must hire a certified professional from a tree removal service to quickly prevent any further damage or harm to your property. Here a few reasons to call for help for any emergency tree removal services that you may need.

Dangerous Weather

Even the toughest, tallest and strongest tree can bow and break down due to extreme weather conditions. These can include wind, water, ice, snow, and lightning. This is one of the most common causes for many to have to call for assistance from an expert tree removal service.

Wind

High and intense winds from storms are also one of the most common causes of emergency tree removal damage. Windsail can happen when the canopy of a tree catches too much air, potentially uprooting it from the soil. Some more common wind injuries include tree twisting, which damages its trunk beyond repair. Weaker and smaller trees can also fall over unexpectedly due to intense winds.

Water Damage

Excessive water from storms can lead to flooding that loosens the soil and sediment around surrounding trees. This can expose or weaken a tree’s root system, causing it to fail and fall over unexpectedly. A tree removal service can deal with any wet fallen trees on your property.

Snow & Ice

Heavy ice and snow can be a burden to the natural weight of a tree, causing its branches to break down or collapse completely. While some trees, such as evergreens, can hold the extra eight of these chilly winter conditions, some trees cannot support the weight.

Lightning Strikes

Trees don’t stand much of a chance against lightning strikes. If lightning hits a tree, the strike can boil water within a tree’s cells, causing fatigue and death. Lightning strikes can also cause a tree to break, explode, or burn entirely.

Leaning

If a tree begins to develop a sudden lean or is growing at a severe angle and showing signs of damage or possible uprooting, it could come crashing down unexpectedly at any moment.
If your tree experiences any damage or falls completely due to any of these reasons, call out a licensed professional from a tree removal service to assist you!

The Roles And Importance Of Tree Pruning

Typically, the health of your trees might not be a high priority. Most people think that their trees can be easily replaced if they begin to die or get sick. However, cutting down a tree on your land might not always be the answer. Large, older trees are cherished for their ability to provide shade during hot summers. If you fail to take care of a tree on your property correctly, it will have poor health, and could even die. That’s where tree pruning comes in. Here are some reasons you should consider hiring a professional for a tree pruning service.

Tree Identification

The biological makeup of a tree is very complex, and often only a professional arborist will know how to classify the species of your trees and understand its growth habits. For example, eucalyptus trees have a way of forming branches that only an arborist from a tree pruning company will be able to recognize.

Nearby Environment

While analyzing the health of your trees, a certified professional will seek out any changes in the surrounding area. This will include whether or not a tree stands by itself or if there are any nearby trees. A tree standing by itself is often more structurally sound compared to trees that are standing in groups because it doesn’t have to compete for any resources. Trees standing together usually need more maintenance and tree pruning to ensure they don’t have and competing branches that could break or tangle up. Close-packed trees also often share diseases or insect infestations.

Fresh Growth Opportunities

Preventive tree care normally requires more than one visit by a professional. Why may you ask? Instead of attempting to fix everything at once, it’s essential to consider the future growth of a tree in form and structure to promote new growth and tree pruning chances. Only a professional arborist will know whether it’s required to remove whole limbs or branches, which can create massive wounds that a tree will need to recover from before additional pruning can take place.

Health and Healing

The status of a tree’s bark is a critical factor that affects its health. A certified professional will ensure you the best pruning practices to prevent any stripping or ripping of a tree’s bark. This part of tree pruning ensures that wounds will heal swiftly and properly, as professionals use tools that have been cleaned and taken care of properly.

Why Winter Tree Pruning Is Beneficial For Your Property

Trees are a landscaping focal point for many homes and businesses. For this reason, tree pruning is one of the most important elements of appropriate landscape maintenance. Winter tree pruning is a common practice and yields the best results once spring finally comes around. Here are some of the best reasons to consider tree pruning this winter season.

Tree Pruning, Why Is It Necessary?

Why not just leave those trees alone and lets nature do its thing? After all, so many people prefer a more wild, unkempt landscape. The most crucial reason for tree pruning is safety. This is especially true with larger trees, which can be at considerable risk for dropping heavy, dead branches that can hurt people or cause property damage. Pruning techniques can also be used to alter the future growth pattern of a tree. This can improve the tree’s structural integrity or give it a more refined shape. It can also encourage your tree to steer clear of any homes, power lines, or other dangerous structures.

Why Winter for Tree Pruning?

Winter is an excellent time to cut back trees because plants are dormant in the cold months of the year. During its dormancy period, a tree’s growth slows down; it consumes less energy and stops generating any food. The process is very similar to hibernation with animals. While they’re dormant, trees are much less susceptible to any potential harm caused by pruning and less likely to be hurt by fungus or insects, which also slows down during the winter. When done right, dormant tree pruning encourages trees to flourish in the spring by preparing them for a fast and healthy regrowth.

How to Prune a Tree This Winter

Safe and sound tree pruning requires tree knowledge, expertise, and a real understanding of the end goal for a tree’s health and appearance. If you don’t know how to go about pruning your tree, call us to give you a hand!

  • It’s best to prune on a sunny day with clear weather.
  • Dead or diseased branches should always be removed first.
  • Smaller or overgrown branches can be trimmed or removed to let in more air and light.
  • Trees should be pruned with the end goal of fostering a healthy tree.
  • Identify any potential obstacles or risks, like power lines, and use pruning techniques to encourage the tree to avoid them.

Why Tree Planting Is So Beneficial For Your Land

Most people don’t spend a lot of time thinking about trees. They’re everywhere, from urban sidewalks to county lanes, so it is easy to forget how valuable and special they are. Trees are actually one of the most interesting and beneficial things you can add to your property when you’re planning on landscaping projects. They provide many health benefits to the people who live on the property – such as providing oxygen and reducing stress and anxiety – but tree planting is also beneficial to the land itself.

Prevent Erosion And Manage Runoff

Trees play an absolutely vital role in managing rainwater runoff. The tree canopies slow the rainfall so that it doesn’t pound against the soil while the root systems absorb some of the water and hold tight to the soil as the rainwater washes down banks and inclines. Without trees, all of our soil would wash away into streams and rivers.

Fight Climate Change

Trees convert Carbon Dioxide into Oxygen through photosynthesis, and this process is a powerful tool in the fight against climate change. If you want to make sure that your land is doing as much as it can to protect the rest of the world, tree planting is a great way to do it. Trees also help to remove other harmful stuff from the air, such as nitrogen oxides and other pollutants, making the air cleaner for all of the surrounding plants and animals (and us).

Attract Wildlife

Trees will potentially attract lots of wildlife to your property, especially birds. Trees provide places for birds to build nests, as well as a source for food (including seeds and insects or any bird feeders you choose to hang up) and shelter from predators. Squirrels also are attracted to trees, and other critters may come visit your yard because of the residents that make their home in your new tree.

Improve Property Value

Having trees on your property can actually improve your property value. Part of this is because of curb appeal – the trees make your yard more beautiful. But it is also true that having trees on your property saves you money by protecting your home from the weather, providing shelter from cold winds and shade from the sun so you spend less on your energy bills.

An Improvement That Lasts

Finally, remember that planting a tree is not a short term improvement. Trees can last decades and even more than a century in some cases. This tree could well be improving your property as it is handed down to generation after generation.

Professional Tree Care
