Here are helfpul maintenance tips from Arborist Now's for your trees and landscape. These will assist you in maintaining the visual beauty and value of your property.

Arborist Now strongly supports a program schedule for the regular examination and treatment of the trees and other greenery in urban outdoor spaces. With regular maintenance, these plants should be healthy and long lasting.

Removal of the tree itself was a time-consuming, risky task. Now you are looking at what remains – the ugly stump! If you trying to decide what to do with that stump, consider that – stumps are unattractive – stumps are hazardous – stumps sprout new tree growth – stumps are obstacles – stumps attract insects and other pests – stumps take up valuable yard space – all of which lead to one conclusion – REMOVE the stump!

Trees are at risk when construction work goes on around them. They can suffer many different types of injury. The equipment used during construction can easily injury a tree’s trunk and branches. The tree’s roots are also at risk, as crews can sever roots and kill the tree. Heavy equipment compacts soil and inhibits root growth from less water and oxygen. The key to protecting tree roots in construction zones is constant vigilance.

A Tree Protection Plan (TPP) is a plan which outlines specific measures to protect trees during construction or other site disturbance. The TPP also addresses requirements for offsetting or mitigating impacts to protected trees, such as transplanting or planting replacement trees. The content and scope of TPPs will vary based on the site, tree species, tree location, type of construction and other factors.

When a tree or shrub is in decline, the problems are usually below ground. Previously, it was very difficult to excavate around a tree’s roots to apply effective treatment. Now, with the use of an air-spade and compressed air, we can now safely dig up the area quickly and uncover the hidden issues affecting a tree’s decline. This tool is also used to aerate soil and introduce organic matter to improve growing conditions of your trees.

Planting a tree is a simple and successful way to beautify your property, provide shade in the summertime, wind protection in winter and increase privacy, while increasing real estate values at the same time. Since a tree is a highly visible part of the landscape, good care must be taken to ensure proper growth conditions are maintained. A tree is far more difficult and expensive to replace, once mature in the landscape, than most shrubs.

There is no simple way to determine the exact cost to remove a tree. There are many factors to consider. For example, the complexity of the job and the height of the tree are just two pricing components. Costs may also vary depending on the condition and location of the tree. Additionally, extra services such as hauling away the tree trunk and stump removal will add to the cost of tree removal service.

Artistic Tree Pruning

Designs may include abstract, symbolic, or functional elements. Some shapes crafted and grown are purely artistic; perhaps cubes, circles, or letters of an alphabet, while other designs might yield any of a wide variety of useful shapes. Eye-catching structures such as living fences can also be grown, and even large architectural are possible with careful planning, planting, and culturing over time.

Trees are generally pruned for one of three purposes: aesthetics, safety or health. Pruning a tree effectively helps to maintain its shape and appearance. However, do not try to impose an unnatural shape or size on a tree. Dead or broken branches and limbs can fall off at any time, which is a serious safety hazard. It is sometimes possible to save an infected tree by strategically pruning away affected branches and limbs.
