You might think that the mighty oak, the weeping willow, or the fragrant cherry tree in your yard simply grows without any need for extra care or attention and each can be left to grow wild. Or you might believe that in order to have healthy trees, you have to do all of the work yourself and have all of the tools and expertise in maintaining your own trees. You might also simply be wishing that someone else could take over the big job you see as the forest in your yard.
While each of these thoughts is a valid option—yes, trees are alive so they will grow on their own, and yes, most people could learn how to look after the trees in their own yards—rest assured that they’re not the only options available to you. At Mr. Tree, we have a team of certified and trained arborists with decades of combined experience providing a wide array of services and tree care needs to residential, commercial, and industrial properties. From lot clearing to tree trimming, here are five specific tree service jobs that we can help you with.
1. Tree Pruning
Pruning is crucial for the health and safety of your trees. Keeping the trees on your property pruned is essential to the healthy growth of a vibrant crown as well as the production of flowers and fruit. While it is possible to simply cut off branches, there is a skill to trimming properly that promotes growth, and not just from an aesthetic point of view. By cutting off large parts of a tree, an untrained person can actually stunt the growth of the tree. Pruning done by a professional arborist will stimulate growth.
Each branch is removed in a strategic manner so that what’s left can flourish without becoming wild and unruly. Methodically pruning trees keeps them safe too. It protects them from pest infestation because no part of the tree will be left overly exposed. As another of our tree service jobs, we will remove dead, diseased, or dangerous branches that could threaten to damage your property, other plants near it, or animals and people if it’s left untamed.
2. Tree Trimming & Shaping
While pruning focuses on safety and promoting healthy growth, trimming trees is a regular tree maintenance task that keeps your trees visually appealing. When the health of a tree improves, the shape can be maintained to have consistency in its appearance. Tree trimming is one of those tree service jobs that can be performed to improve the overall look of your property. Whether your trees need excess growth removed to let in sunlight or they need to be reshaped, Mr. Tree can help.
This can be a particularly beneficial tree service when you’re preparing to sell your home, as it can increase the value of your property, commercial or residential. And tree trimming isn’t only valuable for prospective buyers or sellers. For wedding or reception venues, conference or retreat centers, or even bed and breakfast businesses, for instance, having attractive, neatly trimmed trees can demonstrate the restful and organized experience that your business offers and attract prospective clients to your venue or event.
3. Lot Clearing
When you’re not a certified tree specialist, lot clearing could feel like an impossibly overwhelming job. But don’t worry. No matter the size of the job, Mr. Tree can help. If you have recently acquired land that is currently filled with trees and you want to build on it, our team can help with that. Part of the clear-out might involve our expertise with logging. We have the proper equipment to efficiently cut down and haul away trees.
We can also remove extraneous non-tree debris or overgrown shrubbery once trees are removed. And can even level the ground if you’re planning to start a building project. Whatever you need, we will be sure to leave your property ready for the next phase of construction—whether residential or commercial, we have the experience needed.
4. Tree Removal
There are several reasons why you might need trees removed from your property. You might be redoing the landscaping and want to create space for a new design. Another reason for tree removal could be that you have noticed some of your trees have dead branches, rot, or other visible diseases. These are all signs of an internal issue of the tree’s poor health.
Our team can come to your property and assess whether a tree needs to be removed or if part of it can be saved via other methods. If it’s not able to be saved, the best option is to have the tree removed safely so it’s not a hazard to your home or other buildings near or on your property.
If the worst does happen, and there is storm damage or any other emergency event that has caused a tree to fall on your property, we’re available all day, every day, even on weekends and holidays, to help you take care of the problem.
5. Stump Grinding
Once a tree is removed either because of clearing out a large number of trees, hazardous decay, or damaging weather, you might be left with a stump in the ground. This can be dangerous since it’s not seen very easily, and it can also prevent healthy re-growth of the area around the former tree. A team of certified tree professionals can come to your residential or commercial property with stump grinding equipment.
We will leave your yard clean and tidy, hauling away all of the ground pieces. Or, if you prefer, we can also leave the stump grindings with you to use as mulch. Alternatively, we can advise you on where and how to sell the mulch, which could be a great way to reimburse yourself for the cost of the service.
For all of the tree service jobs you can possibly think of, we are here to help. Give us a call at Mr. Tree for your free consultation. We’d love to take the burden of tree care off your shoulders.
