Your tree health impacts the health of your entire property. Pruning trees, trimming trees, maintaining proper fertilization, and keeping your trees pest and disease-free will benefit the entire landscape (and even your whole neighborhood!). Over-fertilization of trees can cause detrimental environmental impacts, especially for nearby lakes, rivers, and streams. If a tree is left to decay, it can provide a safe haven for pests like termites and ants. Bushy, overgrown trees can mean bare spots where grasses and wildflowers die due to lack of sun exposure. Don’t overlook your tree health! It’s an important part of home and business ownership.
Assessing the health of your trees and overall property can save you time down the line - as well as potentially thousands of dollars. Year-round tree maintenance ensures that when you are faced with a big snowstorm or wind event, your trees withstand the pressure without issue. Anyone who has experienced a tree emergency will tell you - prevention is key! Avoid the headache while you still can.
If you don’t have a degree in horticulture or background as an arborist, tree health can be confusing. That’s why we only employ fully certified and degreed tree doctors. When our arborists visit your property and provide you with a free assessment, you can rest easy knowing that we take the utmost care to consider the health of each individual tree as well as your entire landscape and that we’re looking to save you time and money.
Trees can sometimes exhibit symptoms like wilting, early leaf drop, discolored leaves, and dying branches. Sometimes these have perfectly normal explanations - for instance, some trees will purposely shade out their own lower branches. However, a visit from an expert arborist can help you determine if these symptoms are a sign of something normal, something small, or a larger issue that needs to be addressed immediately.
Some symptoms that a tree can exhibit can be a completely normal part of a tree’s life cycle. For instance, it is normal for some trees to self-prune their own lower branches. Shortleaf pine trees are a great example - it is normal for their lower branches to wilt and fall off. However, sometimes early leaf drop, wilting, dying branches and discoloration on the leaves are a sign of something more serious. Our expert arborists can help you tell the difference.
Some symptoms are not disease-related at all. Sometimes leaf wilt and dying limbs are an indication of pest rather than disease. We are always happy to advise you on the best course of action to keep those pests from damaging your home or property.
