What is the process for tree pruning and removal?
We need to look into several factors, such as the size and location of your tree to determine the process we should use to prune or remove the tree. On most occasions, we use hand-held tools and climb the tree to complete the job, but if the need arises, we can utilize our bucket trucks and cranes.
How can you reduce the size of my tree?
We never practice topping to reduce the height of the tree as it can have adverse effects later on. We can use the technique called “crown reduction” to reduce the size of the crown without causing severe damage to the tree’s health.
Can you remove or prune my tree in the winter?
Absolutely. In fact, winter is an ideal time to prune trees because they are in a dormant state. It is easier to prune them during this time because branches are more visible and accessible due to the loss of foliage. The chance of getting infected by diseases is also significantly reduced when in winter pruning.
What is stump grinding?
Stump grinding involves using a grinding machine to mill the stump into smaller bits. This process aims to remove the sight of the stumps without causing damage to the surrounding area.
Should I get a permit to remove my tree?
In some cases, yes. Some municipalities require homeowners to apply for a permit before tree removal. Local regulations protect trees near or on private property, as well as the ones in sensitive areas. The law also protects heritage trees.
What arborist report do I need?
It generally depends on your situation. There are several types of arborist reports that you can choose from, which include:
Tree Inventories: This report identifies the different trees on a lot. It also notes the trees that are protected by the law.
Tree Assessments: If you are looking to remove a tree, this report is what you will need. This report includes information about the tree’s species, size, and overall health.
When is the best time to fertilize my tree?
The best time to fertilize a tree depends on your goal. It is recommended to fertilize in spring or the onset of summer if you are applying high nitrogen fertilizer. Before you feed your tree, make sure to consult a professional arborist to diagnose the needs of the tree for a maximum result.
What action should I take if I suspect my tree to be diseased or insect-infested?
You should contact a tree service and schedule an assessment right away. It is crucial to examine the tree to identify the root of the problem and treat it accurately. On many occasions, external factors and human activities cause the decline of a tree’s health. They can be diagnosed and corrected by a certified arborist.
