Whether keeping a large-growing tree in scale or giving an overgrown tree a trim, smart pruning can improve a tree's appearance and make your outdoor spaces safer.

Just walking through a forest and viewing its beauty, everyone sees a tree’s ability to adapt itself to a location. Here pruning occurs naturally.

Tree pruning – which has several definitions - fundamentally involves removing parts of the tree to improve its appearance, health and impact on the surrounding landscape.

Though routine, proper pruning is a skill that incorporates special equipment, training and experience with an eye for the aesthetic. Certainly, pruning is necessary to remove dead or diseased branches, improve its structure and reduce the possibility of personal injury or property damage. No branch should be removed without a reason and pruning should be performed with care.

Pruning primarily is a matter of common sense. In most cases, it is better not to prune than to do it incorrectly. By using improper pruning methods healthy plants are often weakened or deformed.

Our experienced arborists provide tree pruning services necessary to maintain or improve the health, appearance and safety of your trees.

Artistic Tree Pruning

Artistic pruning is the creative interpretation and expression of trees and shrubs.

Shaping trees and plants for style and function is an art and a science – a creative endeavor. It combines the artistic skill of the pruner, the essence of a tree, the client’s needs, and the plant’s locale, creating a living art form.

Ornamental trees and ornamental shrubs serve many functions in the landscape. They are focal points; shade providers; they define spaces and screen views; or are simply a beautiful living showcase. Arborist Now uses skilled pruning techniques to ensure that your plants remain an asset to your landscape now and in the future.

Whether you prefer a natural look or clean, crisp lines, we are here to help. We adapt the pruning style to your objectives and the needs of the specific plant.

As a tree is a lifetime investment, there is more involved than simply picking out the loveliest tree at the nursery. An arborist can evaluate your soil conditions, ambience of the location and other factors so the best tree is selected.

It is a challenging task when you want to move one of your trees to another part of your property. Arborist Now provides tree transplanting services to preserve the tree’s integrity and limit shock during the process.

Whether you invest in our tree planting, tree replacement or tree transplanting services, we develop a program that includes pruning, mulching and fertilizing your newly planted trees so they can survive and thrive on your property.

The professionals at Arborist Now will help you choose the right trees for your property.

Soil and Root Care

With proper soil and root care, it takes the stress off of Urban Trees, allowing them to thrive.

Healthy soils make healthy roots. This dynamic combination creates healthy trees that can withstand the challenges of the environment.

The soil beneath trees must be capable of holding water, oxygen and processing the nutrients required by the plants to survive. Urban soils are frequently challenged with severe compaction issues, infiltration problems and barriers that affect management of necessary nutrients.

These challenges often stress plants, which induce other disease and insects to step in and cause additional problems. It is recommended that a professional arborist evaluates the need for fertilizer feeding of trees with health problems.

We offer complete soil testing, including both chemical and biological components. We test soil structure, composition and bulk density to determine how your soil is functioning and if it is providing everything necessary for healthy trees.

Arborist Now uses a method to loosen compacted soil with high pressure air and adds a blend of organic compost and engineered soils to create a soil environment that trees can thrive in for decades.

Tree Cabling & Bracing

Cabling and Bracing is an essential tree support system used in providing supplemental support to individual branches and leaders by reducing movement.

Tree cabling and bracing helps save trees and protects people and property. You probably have seen a tree split down the middle and wondered why! This structural mishap is caused by a weak crotch that sends entire limbs to the ground.

All trees are assessed for appropriate cabling plan prior to performing work. Arborist Now uses dynamic cabling to reduce tree crown movement, as static cabling eliminates most movement and weakens the tree. In most cases, cabling must be accompanied with pruning to remove weight from limbs that need to be secured. Braces are designed to support codominant stems (also called multiple leaders). Brace rods help reduce the risk of the leaders moving sideways or spreading apart. Cables typically accompany the brace rods to provide additional support. Arborist Now uses “synthetic” cabling of hollow braid polyester designed to be an adjustable cord for cabling limbs.

Arborist Now provides bracing or cabling in San Francisco to help restore your trees to optimum health.

Tree Protection Plan

A well implemented tree protection plan is used during construction and can help minimize any damage and protect your landscape investment.

Are you planning to build or remodel a home? Before you start, consider the impact of construction on plants.

Trees and shrubs contribute to property values. Unfortunately, plants meant to be part of a home's permanent landscape often are needlessly damaged or killed during construction. Careful planning and coordination with a tree-care specialist and your builder can reduce damage and save you the trouble and expense of treating or removing injured plants.

Each construction site has its own unique set of soil, tree species, and building process conditions. An arborist will be familiar with the growth characteristics and common problems faced by tree species in your area and can help evaluate plant health and the likely impacts of construction activities.

It's not always easy to save trees during construction, but your efforts are worth the trouble. Advance planning and simple steps to minimize damage often can prevent future problems. Take the time to protect and monitor the health of your investment. Your home landscape will be healthier and more attractive.

Work Zone Tree Protection

As arborists, we ensure which trees are sufficiently protected in various work zones in the urban setting.

Protecting trees during construction helps save both trees and property from potential damage. It is important to keep the crown, branches, and trunk clear from direct contact and injury by equipment, materials, or disturbances during construction. Tree protection measures should also preserve the roots and soil from compaction and disturbance. When steps are taken to protect trees on construction sites, the risk of damaging or destabilizing trees is reduced.

Buildings and homes are often constructed near existing trees to take advantage of their aesthetic and environmental value. Unfortunately, the process involved with construction can be deadly to nearby trees. Proper planning and care are needed to preserve trees in building sites. Arborist Now can help you decide which trees can be saved. We also work with the builder to protect the trees throughout each phase of construction.

We understand that careful planning and communication is just as important as avoiding tree damage during construction. You can depend on Arborist Now for the finest and most experienced professional tree care in San Francisco.
