Q - What is the difference between trimming and pruning a tree?
A - Trimming focuses on making the tree and its surrounding area more attractive. When pruning, our work is calculated, where the health of the tree is the priority.
Q - When is trimming and pruning a tree ideal?
A - The best time of the year for trimming and pruning is towards the back end of winter and early spring. Done this way, the trees will have the proper amount of time to recover from the pruning going into summer. You want to start pruning your trees when they are young. This way, as the tree ages, it will grow stronger and be healthier.
Q - Why should I remove or grind my tree stump?
A - It is unattractive to see and is a hazard to you, your family, home and business.
Q - When is it best to remove or grind a tree stump?
A - Ideally, this should be done once we remove the tree.
Q - When do I need to have bracing and cabling done on my tree?
A - Bracing and cabling are ONLY needed if trees have the potential to cause personal or property damage.
Q - Can I just have bracing done instead of cabling?
A - No, bracing is done in conjunction with cabling. They must be done together.
Q - What is girdling?
A - Girdling is the complete removal of a certain section of bark from around the entire circumference of a branch or the trunk of a tree. A tree will die if the layer of tissue just below the bark, which is called the Phloem layer, is damaged and cannot carry the nutrients to the rest of the tree. We pay attention to how we are bracing and cabling so that this does not happen.
