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.

Stump Removal – If you have been left with a stump in your garden not only can it be hazardous, it can also look unsightly,and be taking gardening space which you could put to better use. Having the stump removed will prevent suckers being produced from the stump and it can also prevent the spread of disease. Using a stump grinder we will grind the stump and the surface roots so that they are well below ground level.This will allow you to either replant the area or use it for anything you want.

Crown Lifting, Thinning, Reduction and Reshaping – By utilising these services we can transform your tree. With crown lifting and thinning we will remove the lowest branches on the tree and reduce the density of the tree this then allows more light and space under the tree as well as allowing more light through the tree while still retaining a healthy and balanced branch structure. Crown reduction and reshaping is usually used to reduce the height and crown area of the tree so that it not only prevents the tree from interfering with obstacles such as utility cables, but also creates a better appearance.

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.

4 Things to Look for In Your Tree Removal Estimate

The best time to trim trees in Arizona depends on the variety of tree you are trimming. In Arizona tree trimming is crucial to keep trees healthy throughout the year. If you don't get rid of branches that are weak and about to break off, you could set yourself up for having damaged property--either your personal property or someone else's. If a storm were to come in and with high winds, weak branches can break off and cause damage.

If there are large weak branches that is even a bigger problem, as they can smash through the windows of cars and homes and you would end up paying for it financially in the end. Also, trimming trees in Arizona is important because unhealthy branches hinder the healthy ones from growing. Your landscaping will look odd if weak branches remain without being trimmed away, and if the trees grow out of control and break off or partially fall down you may end up needing to call a tree removal service to remove the tree altogether.

There are many trees in Arizona, and there are different times when they should be trimmed. For instance, with palm trees, the best time to trim trees in Arizona is when their health is at stake. For aesthetic reasons, trimming of palm trees should be done at least twice a year. For several varieties the best time is in July and January so seeds and related growth are removed as part of the process, but you can trim them whenever you see fit. Trimming palm trees helps them to stay healthy and vibrant.

The best time to trim pine trees in Arizona is really any time--there is no certain season when they have to be trimmed. When you do trim pine trees, there should be a small stub left on the tree trunk--do not put a deep cut into the trunk. Otherwise the pine tree will grow more than it needs to and it will develop thick calluses. Wait about four months and then you can cut off the residual stub and smooth it off.

The best time to trim citrus trees is during the spring season, from the middle of March to the beginning of May. Citrus trees are really just large bushes and like to grow that way. With light pruning, even with the high temperatures in Arizona they will be fine. During the pruning process the trunk should not be exposed--citrus trees should not be exposed to direct sun because they will get sun damage.

The best time to trim trees in Arizona varies, depending on the type of tree. Correctly trimming trees is more important than when you trim them. Make sure that you are trimming the trees the correct way so that they will grown and thrive as part of your landscape for a long time.

cutting down a tree

Everyone loves the "tropical" feel of a palm tree. A palm tree is one of the most recognized tropical trees. A tropical tree is very different in structure from a Northern tree. A tropical tree is usually long and skinny. Most tropical trees have green leaves that seem to hang from the tree much like a person's hair. If you are landscaping your yard nothing give s a "tropical" feel like a palm tree. Many beginners are bewildered about the proper care and maintenance that a palm tree requires. What type of tropical tree should you choose?

The above question can be answered in three separate parts. One of the factors you must consider is that palm trees cold hardiness, sunlight and height requirements. For example if you live in a very cold part of the country you would not be able to plant a tropical tree outdoors because the tree would not receive enough sunlight or warm temperatures. The cold will eventually kill the tropical tree. If you live in a colder environment you may want to consider investing in a tropical tree that can be grown indoors.

There are several different types of palm trees. Some of the most popular types of palm trees are lady palm trees, Puerto Rican thatch palm trees and silver saw palmetto palm trees. Each of these types of palm trees has palmate leaves. A palmate leaf has lobes that fan out from one common point. The structure of the palmate leaf resembles an open hand. The leaves radiate from the Palm so to speak.

The other types of palm trees that are found in a tropical climate have pinnate leaves. The types of palm trees with pinnate leaves are mountain cabbage palm trees, queen palm trees and date palm trees. Now, there are certain tropical trees that can be kept indoors. Indoor tropical trees include the bamboo tree, lady palm tree and the Kentia tree.

A tropical tree tends to conjure images in ones head of sunny, bright blue skies, warm temperatures and a sandy beach. When one thinks of paradise an image of a tropical tree may appear. This is a false statement though. There are tropical trees that can grow beautifully under sunny skies or partial to full shade.

A taller tropical tree tends to be a sun lover while a shorter tropical tree can grow in the shade. If you want to plant both types of tropical trees in your backyard you may want to plant a taller tropical tree next to a shorter tropical tree. This way the taller tropical tree will provide adequate shade for the shorter tree.

A tropical tree is a symbol that we all recognize. Many of us who have fond memories of the Pacific Ocean remember the tall, skinny tropical trees that dotted the landscape. A tropical tree is a remembrance of warm weather, fun in the sun and a hint of paradise. A tropical tree is a great landscaping idea, outdoors and indoors, no matter where you live. Bring paradise to your home even in the winter months.
