Preserving Your Trees for the Next Generation



What exactly is an Arborist?

An arborist specializes in the field of arboriculture, or individual tree care. Arborists understand the needs of specific trees, just as as a medical specialist is trained for specific parts of the body. As tree “doctors,” arborists provide trained care for all types of trees, shrubs, and their protective surroundings.

Are my trees safe?

It’s a common misconception that trees fall merely due to storms, since often times, trees had existing damage in which the storm was the final straw.

Tree branch and trunk failures are often caused by disease or decay, thereby diminishing a tree’s strength. This can lead to major damage to your home. Our experts will assess your trees to determine their safety, which can prevent costly damage down the road.

While most trees with healthy, undisturbed root systems can withstand strong winds, an arborist’s inspection can determine early warning signs of root damage. A tree risk inspection can also determine how healthy trees can become dangerous over time, especially in urban environments that have been newly built around existing trees.

Common Tree Risks in Urban Environments

  • Improper tree pruning is usually the single biggest risk of limb failure in the urban environment. Lions tailing, foliage stripping, heavy thinning can cause huge risks to your trees.
  • Construction or Landscape installation that cause grade changes.
  • Pipes and sprinkler lines under trees.
  • Construction of housing around trees, particularly when a pre-existing smaller house is demolished for a newer, larger home.
  • Constantly moist soil due to poor drainage or changes in drainage. Tree roots can become suffocated and decayed if soil stays perpetually moist.
