Tips for Choosing a Tree Service

The best way to determine tree health is to have an experienced tree professional do a visual inspection. In some cases, a sick or damaged tree can be saved and does not need to be removed. Testing equipment can measure tree health factors that impact survival rates, including the hollowness of a tree.

Choosing a Tree Specialist
References and internet testimonials are a great place to start, and look for recent feedback from multiple customers in your area. Key questions for potential tree service providers are:

  • How long have you been in Business?
  • Proof of Insurance Coverage provided?
  • Are Customer References provided?
  • Do you provide Free Inspections and Written Estimates? 

Insect and Disease Control
Damage and destruction caused by insects and diseases can severely limit a tree or shrub’s ability to manufacture the sugars and substances needed to remain healthy. As a tree’s health suffers and declines, the odds for defoliation and death sharply increase. A specialized program for trees and shrubs is the most logical step toward managing the spread of harmful insects and devastating diseases.

Stump Grinding
A quick, clean and efficient way to remove stumps from your landscaping. First the stump is ground down 6 to 8 inches below ground level.

Grinding the stump allows immediate use of the area where a stump used to be.

Chipping is an excellent option for tree debris, and is more eco-friendly and economical than hauling to a dump. An added bonus is that customers can use the resulting wood chips for mulch, landscape bark or and erosion control.
