Our Services

Tree Surgery – Experts performing tree pruning and trimming services make it seem easy, but there is so much more to it than just cutting here and there. While some tasks can be done on your own using your pruners and saws, most of them are best left to the pros. According to the experts, the right pruning and trimming has to do with what portions to cut, how much, and when to do it.

Tree Removal – People take out trees for a number of reasons – as a landscaping requirement, if they are precariously reaching the electric lines or if they are dead. Whatever the reason may be, calling a tree removal expert is the best thing to do. Though you can easily chop down the tree with a chainsaw, you may lack the knowledge on how to do it properly, which could cause injury to yourself, your family or damage to your home.

Tree Felling – Is more than just cutting a V into the trunk in the direction you want the tree to fall. Amongst other things an arborist will take into consideration the shape and weight distribution of the tree. In a fairly open area it can be as simple as a straight drop, but a lot of the time felling a tree can involve dismantling the tree in sections and using ropes or a crane to lower the pieces to the ground safely as they are cut.

Tree Contractors – When trees are not looked after properly not only will they no longer look their best, they can also pose danger to your family and your property. Your best course of action is to employ the services of a local tree contractor. Apart from tree removal and tree felling  we also offer a number of other services for both our residential and commercial customers. Other services we offer include: tree planting and tree maintenance, mulching services, stump grinding.

Cleaning Up Your Backyard

Despite your vigilance, the tell-tale signs are there: your tree is filled with dead limbs, hasn't developed buds despite the fact that it's late spring and looks a bit, well, dead. Before you call your local landscaper to tear down the tree, put down the phone and take a closer look.  Is your tree really dead? 

Perform this quick test to determine if your tree is dead or just sick: snap off a small tree branch.  How difficult was it to break the branch?  Did the limb snap right off, or did you have to put effort into it?  Is the inside of the limb dry as dust, or is there still some moisture?  Moisture means life - so if you've determined that your tree isn't dead, it's likely to be diseased.  Get ready to put on your punching gloves, because here's how to fight back against tree disease:

Stop All Extra Maintenance.  While this may seem contrary to your natural instincts, fertilizing and mulching a diseased tree is highly ineffective, and can even be dangerous.  Most tree diseases can be fought against naturally, so give the roots of your tree room to breathe by refraining from fertilizing and mulching.  After all, the point is to let your tree heal - not overwhelm it by encouraging extraordinary growth!

On The Other Hand... When you have a diseased tree on your hands, you will need to give it a little extra TLC than usual.  Water your tree as often as possible, as a diseased tree will have more difficulty retaining moisture than a healthy tree.  Additionally, don't mow around a diseased tree, as you'll put the tree at risk for wounds inflicted by the blades; hand clippers will work equally as well here.

Don't Over prune. Diseased trees will have plenty of dead limbs; however, don't get carried away with your pole pruner, as this will only exacerbate a bad thing. Prune any major dead limbs, but don't cut more than ¼ of the tree's limbs.

Call In The Professionals.  Most trees can fight disease on their own with little assistance from you; however, there's one disease that needs the help of a professional to beat: Dutch Elm Disease.  If you suspect that your tree has been inflicted with Dutch Elm, call a landscaper or arborist right away, as this serious disease can wipe out a whole forest in a matter of months.

Spray for bugs - along with removing dead limbs, its critical that there isn't infestation in the tree.  Make sure the tree is treated for ANY infestation, because infestation will result in death if left untreated.

Tree trimming and pruning - Its important that you remove dead limbs, however you don't want to scalp the tree.  If you have doubt as to your ability to trim it up nicely call in your local tree trimmer for help, the costs are insignificant when compared to the immediate and lasting results.

When it comes to tree disease, it's better to be safe than sorry.  If following these expert tips hasn't helped, don't hesitate to call upon a professional to help you out - the health of your tree will thank you for it!

Most Important Tree Trimming Services For The Home

Pruning a cherry tree is different than pruning other fruit trees.

Pruning most fruit trees is fairly simple. The end result should be a funnel allow equal amounts of sunlight to reach all the branches and in turn the fruit as it grows, promoting healthy growth and maturity of the individual fruits. Trimming a cherry tree is different, here's how...

Although the theory is the same, the end shape is different. It is sometimes described as a scaffolding, ladder or layers. In other words, all of the main producing branches should stick out perpendicular from the trunk, like a "T". The first layer starting 2" prime; -3" prime; from the ground and then additional branching at 2" prime; intervals all the way to the top. Like other fruit trees this allows equal amounts of sunlight to reach the fruit, thought the shape is different. It also increases air flow, which is important for optimal cherry growth.

Special Note: Never prune more than 25% of the tree except in very specific and rare cases.

When should I prune my cherry tree?

In a health region, free of silver leaf disease, pruning and trimming should be done in late winter just before the cherry tree starts to bud. If silver leaf disease is prevalent in your area then it is best to trim in the summer at the first sign of the disease.

Be sure to know the kind of cherry tree you have as some cherry trees require a slightly different approach. Especially varieties of ornamental cherry trees.
