Services Tree Arborists Perform
Pruning is the process of removing certain limbs, branches, or stems from a tree. It is much more than the simple act of sawing off some limbs. A Certified Arborist will always follow American National Standards Institute (ANSI) A300 Pruning Standards and will make informed decisions about how much and where to trim or remove, as well as use the proper technique to do so to help facilitate proper healing and health. Proper pruning can help improve a tree’s structure and health.
There are numerous reasons why a tree may be removed and it is often done because the tree is dead and/or is a threat to people or property. Tree removal, particularly large tree removal, requires specific knowledge and equipment and is a highly technical task. A Certified Arborist will be able to remove a tree in a safe and efficient manner.
Emergency Tree Care
A tree emergency is a tree that has become immediately hazardous, usually as a result of a storm or weather. Downed trees can present even more of a risk and should be left to a tree care company with extensive experience in responding to storm damage. A Certified Arborist will also be able to asses whether a tree can be saved or if removal is required.
Certified Arborists are well-versed in tree biology and as a result, are able to identify and diagnose ailments that affect trees, including, but not limited to, fungal diseases, insects, and environmental conditions. A Certified Arborist will be able to provide recommendations as to treatment options to help maintain tree health.
