Tree Service Maintenance for Property Owners

Trees provide many benefits to property owners, including increased visibility and safety. They also increase property value and fruit yield.

Tree service technicians are often hired to help property owners maintain trees on their landscapes. They can offer guidance on best practices for pruning and other maintenance tasks.

Preventative Maintenance

Trees offer a number of benefits for your property and home, from offering shade and increasing the value of your property to providing natural beauty. However, they can also present hazards and safety concerns if not properly inspected and maintained.

Fortunately, tree service companies can provide an important service that ensures your trees are well cared for and maintain their integrity. Proper pruning and trimming can increase the value of your home, reduce the risk of fires and storm damage and protect your family from potential injury.

Preventive maintenance is a systematic approach that aims to reduce unplanned equipment failures and downtime. This is achieved by facilities personnel performing routine inspections, maintenance, and repairs on assets to ensure they function as intended.

To ensure that your preventive maintenance plan is sustainable, make sure that you follow best practices and use modern technology to keep track of inspections and work orders. In addition to offering scheduling and task generation, modern preventive maintenance software also offers data integration so that you can see how your work orders impact operational downtime and repair costs.

Tree Removal

Trees provide many benefits including reducing air conditioning costs, controlling erosion, storing carbon, shielding homes and buildings from storm damage, and providing aesthetic value. However, they can pose safety hazards if not properly maintained and inspected.

For example, trees and branches can interfere with overhead power lines or create a tripping hazard for pedestrians. To address these concerns, utility companies have established programs and procedures to maintain lines and minimize disruptions.

The City also has regulations governing trees on private property. These regulations aim to balance private property rights and the community’s desire to preserve trees and their inherent values.

If you have a significant tree in your yard that needs maintenance, it’s best to contact the City first. We can send an arborist out to assess the tree and determine if it requires any work. The tree will be assigned to one of our crews or an outside contractor based on the priority level deemed by the arborist.

Stump Grinding

Stump grinding is the process of using a machine to grind down the remaining tree stump to below ground level. The machine used for stump grinding is called a stump grinder, and it works by using a rotating cutting disk that grinds away the wood. The end result is a pile of wood chips that can be used for landscaping, or can be removed from the property.

Why Should You Get Stump Grinding?
There are several reasons why you should consider getting stump grinding done on your property. First and foremost, a stump can be an eyesore and can detract from the beauty of your landscaping. Additionally, stumps can be a tripping hazard, especially for children and elderly people. Finally, stumps can also attract pests such as termites, which can cause damage to your property.

Emergency Tree Service

If you see a leaning tree, or loose limbs, it is important to call an arborist to check on its status. This is because a weakened root system could cause it to collapse in strong winds and heavy rains.

The good news is that many times, a little maintenance can keep your trees healthy and strong for years to come. In fact, the best way to avoid this type of issue is to have a total tree evaluation done prior to storm season.

This process will identify any trees that pose the most risk and recommend options for preventive tree maintenance to keep them strong and healthy. This can include pruning or tree removal if necessary.

Tree Pruning

Tree pruning removes dead, dying, or weak branches that could worsen over time and cause long-term damage to the tree. Pruning also helps to control the direction of the growth of the tree and promotes new healthy limbs.

It also promotes a plant form that is appropriate for your landscape design. The late dormant season is the best time to prune for most tree and shrub species.

During this season, you should avoid flush cuts that cut the branch collar. Instead, prune the branch using a series of cuts that reduce its weight. The final cut should be at a branch, twig or bud that is pointed in the desired direction of growth.
