Frequently Asked Tree Questions
1. Does your company use spikes to climb the trees?
We do not use spikes to climb trees that we are pruning. We will only use spikes if we are taking down the tree.
2. Does your company spray trees with pesticides for insects?
No, we don’t believe in the use of pesticides to control insects in most cases. We feel that if your tree is healthy it can withstand an attack from common insects. We recommend maintaining your tree with regular pruning and fertilizing to keep it strong and healthy. However, in some cases the use of pesticides are necessary, and we can recommend a reputable pest control service for you to contact.
3. Do you top trees?
Topping is no longer a recommended pruning method to cut a tree down in height. It is actually harmful to the health of the tree. Your estimator can discuss other methods of pruning to maintain a certain height, and to try to repair trees that have been damaged by topping.
4. When is the best time to prune a tree?
There are different times to prune different trees, for example most flowering trees should be pruned after they bloom, and Maples can be pruned most times of the year except when in a drought. It is best to discuss pruning with the estimator, because every tree is unique in it’s placement on your property and it’s condition.
5. How often should I fertilize my trees?
We recommend you deep root fertilize your trees every 2 to 3 years. However, trees that are not in good health may need to be fertilized more frequently.
