Tree Facts

When a tree is planted, it takes years to recover from the stress.  Roots must become adjusted to the new site and establish the ability to obtain nutrients from the soil.   Depending on the size of the tree, it may take up to seven years before it grows.   A rough rule of thumb is "for each inch of trunk diameter, allow one year for the tree roots to establish."

PRUNING FOR HEALTH 

Trees require pruning to preserve their health, appearance and to prevent damage to human life and property.  Dead, diseased and broken branches are pruned to prevent pathogenic organisms from penetrating adjacent parts of the tree. Pruning is an effective control measure for black knot, fire blight, several twig blights, some cankers and dwarf mistletoe. 

We remove live branches to allow penetration of sun and proper circulation of air through the canopy. Such preventive treatment makes the tree a less favorable site for powdery mildew and favors formation of flower buds.

Proper pruning can prevent breakage by reducing wind resistance and by increasing the structural stability of the tree. We target branches that form an acute angle of attachment because they are prone to breakage. 

PRUNING FOR APPEARANCE
Pruning can be used to:
1. Maintain or restore the desired, characteristic crown form. 
2. Maintain normally large shade or ornamental trees within reasonable boundaries of
    small properties.
3. Produce unusual shapes of the tree crown.

PRUNING FOR SAFETY  
Broken, split and dead branches must be removed to eliminate constant hazard to property and human life. Low branches in the area of pedestrian and vehicular traffic should be removed to a height of 12'. It is also very important to remove branches which obscure clear vision of warning signs and traffic.

STUMP GRINDING

Stump grinding removes stumps below grade level with out disturbing adjacent features. Our smaller, self propelled machine can be walked through the 3' gate of your back yard and is ideal for soft or steep lawns. The large machine in our fleet is a tow-behind, used to pulverize the biggest and toughest of hardwood stumps. Another application of stump grinders is surface root pruning which can prevent roots from uplifting driveways, sidewalks and foundations
