Our hope is that we can do as much as possible for the tree to improve its health or restore its shape through trimming and pruning. Proper pruning improves the health and appearance of trees, prolongs life within the tree and encourages thriving lawn growth beneath it. Through trimming, dead, dying or diseased wood is removed, shape is enhanced, and limbs can be raised to clear height. We follow the tree-pruning guidelines established by the International Society of Arboriculture, the organization through which we receive our certification. A certified arborist knows the proper techniques for determining the angle and position of the correct cuts to a tree. Some one without this experience and training could actually damage the tree, jeopardizing its future health.
We can plant trees selected by you or guide you in your selection. Informed selection will help to insure the health and longevity of your new tree and eliminate or reduce maintenance problems in the future. We will plant your tree's) in accordance with the latest guidelines and techniques in order to insure survivability.
Shrub and Hedge Trimming
It’s important to keep shrubs and hedges trimmed on a regular basis as they can easily grow out of control. We perform hedge trimming at the optimal time of year for each type of plant in order to promote its best growth.
Standard procedure is to remove all brush and tree debris from the property by sending it through a brush chipper, which deposits the chips into the back of our trucks. Often customers choose to keep the woodchips and use them for landscaping mulch or playground bases.
Plant Health Care
We can advise you on the proper care of the plants on your property, and perform services to help them thrive.
Stumps of any size can be removed by utilizing a stump-grinder. Stumps are ground 10-12 inches below grade with grindings being either neatly raked back into the “hole” or removed.
Trees do so much for our world, our health, the view from our window and our souls, but there are times when because of poor tree health or landscape design they have to beremoved. Using proper techniques and equipment we can remove trees of all sizes. It is your choice to have the wood removed or left for firewood. Either way, you can be assured your property will be left meticulously cleaned and raked with little or no disturbance to surrounding landscape.
Emergency Storm Work
We’re all too familiar with the wrath of Mother Nature on our trees in this area. If you require immediate service due to a dangerous situation with a storm damaged tree or large branches please call our emergency number at (585) 748-1390
Cabling and Tree Repair
High winds, excess ice or snow, and other causes may result in large branches “splitting” at their point of attachment to the tree. Cabling involves installing steel cables between major limbs to reduce the strain and help support the tree. Generally, the cable can hardly be noticed as it reduces stress damage and maintains the shape of the tree.
Aerial Bucket Service
Where accessibility permits, we use a 60-foot working height aerial lift truck. If it is necessary to drive across your lawn to access the tree we protect your lawn with sheets of plywood placed underneath the wheels to avoid damage to your lawn.
