Sometimes it is possible to mitigate the risk of tree/branch failure by installing cables and braces to provide supplemental support. Bracing or cabling a tree provides the tree with a safety net for any branch that may be at risk of falling. It can help a tree grow in a more proper shape and can ensure that the tree does not have an imbalance from the varying tree branches.
Pruning a tree is a very skillful, slow process that ensures that the tree is thinned out and shaped appropriately. Tree pruning is a great way for the tree to remain balanced and healthy, leading to a lower chance of a tree or branch falling. Pruning is the most common arboricultural practice. Our ISA Certified Arborists have the education and training needed to prune trees according to the national pruning standards and ISA Best Management Practices.
Thrifty Tree Service has multiple ISA Certified Arborists on staff that have the education and experience to diagnose tree health problems and recommend treatments. Many trees become disease ridden and with declining health can be saved with proper treatments. What may look like a healthy tree on the outside could be totally rotten and disease-ridden on the inside.
There are many reasons for removing trees ranging from personal want to a decline in the trees health, but no matter the reason, we can remove any tree regardless of size. Tree removal can be an extremely hazardous undertaking that requires specialized training and equipment. Our professional arborists are equipped appropriately to remove trees safely, while minimizing damage to surrounding property.
In cases of catastrophic loss, legal disputes, or simple assessments, an appraisal of a tree’s value is sometimes required. Our ISA Certified Arborists offer tree appraisals as a consulting service. Tree value estimates are a service that help the customer by providing them with information on what their tree is worth and what steps they should take to protect it. These estimates take all factors into account in order to provide an accurate tree value estimate for any situation.
Except for the youngest and smallest trees, almost all trees pose a potential risk from failure. A Certified Arborist can assess this risk and recommend measures to minimize it. This is to ensure that a tree is not at a high risk of falling and such an assessment would provide the customer with the knowledge about how dangerous of a tree they have. A Tree Risk Assessment is valuable for a tree that poses a threat to a home or building and is a way for the property owner to decide whether or not the tree should be removed.
Although trees grow quite well in the forest without supplemental fertilization, urban and suburban soils may lack the vital nutrients that trees need. We offer fertilization as one of our many plant health care practices. We pride ourselves in being able to save trees and have the experience, tools, and supplements necessary in order to save and fix any problems a tree may have.
There is very little that can be done to treat trees that have been damaged due to construction-related activities. This is why it is essential to involve an arborist early in development projects to ensure that measures are taken to protect the trees.
