Removal – Tree removal can be an extremely hazardous undertaking that requires specialized trained staff and equipment.
Stump Grinding/Removal – Usually, once a tree has been removed, the property owner will also want the stump ground out.
Chipping – Tree chipping is a common means of removing limbs and branches after they have been cut.
Fertilization – Although trees grow quite well in the forest without supplemental fertilization, urban and suburban soils may lack the vital nutrients that trees need. Fertilization is one of many plant health care practices.
Cable/Bracing – Sometimes it is possible to mitigate the risk of tree/branch failure by installing cables and/or braces to provide supplementary support.
Public Education – Opportunities to educate the public about proper tree care practices. This might include presentations to garden clubs, tree planting projects for residential estates, property management companies or schools at all levels.
Tree Value Estimates – In cases of significant loss, legal disputes, or simple assessments, an appraisal of a tree’s value is sometimes required.
Tree Risk Assessment – Most mature trees pose a potential risk from failure. This risk can be assessed and measures recommended minimizing damage to public or property.
Landscape Services – This might include landscape design or installation, landscape maintenance, lawn care, hedge trimming, irrigation installation, or other related services.
Pest Management – The key to avoiding pest problems on landscape trees and shrubs is to maintain a plant health care system. This involves proper selection and maintenance of plants, and monitoring of health and pest issues. Pest management also includes provision of the appropriate treatments for controlling pests.
Tree Planting – Good tree selection and how to properly plant a tree. It is important to consider the type of tree you plant in your garden, be it a large or small, rural or urban environment.
Tree Preservation Planning – There is very little that can be done to treat trees that have been damaged due to construction activities. This is why it is essential that measures are taken to protect the trees prior to development work.
