When Should Tree Service Be Done?

Tree Trimming

Typically, trimming tree services should be taken care of in the late winter or spring. Mature trees and young trees both appreciate the trimming process before the real summer heat sets in.

With cooler overall temperatures, the risk of disease entering the tree is lower. As well, removing non-essential branches and buds before they begin taking in nutrients leaves more for the parts of the tree you’d really like to see grow.

Tree Removal

Tree removal services are best done immediately. Safety is paramount when it comes to tree removal. Safety for people, possessions and other trees in the area. If a tree is in danger and needs to be removed, any storm, group of insects or animals or an accidental force could push it to its breaking point and cause serious damage or injury.

If you aren’t sure if a tree needs to be removed, our experts have the tools and arboreal expertise to diagnose the tree’s need.

Stump Grinding

A tree stump can serve as the home for many types of fungus and bugs, including: ants, termites, beetles and other wood-boring insects. They can attack and carve out the tree stump, but can also cause significant damage to your lawn, other trees, shrubbery and even your house. Tree stumps should be ground out immediately upon noticing them, but if possible should be removed by spring to prevent insects or fungus taking root there.
