The term tree service refers to a variety of activities that involve the maintenance of a tree in an arbor or tree spade. In arborist’s dictionary it is defined as “the application of arbors and other forms of infrastructure designed and built for tree growth.” Tree service is the application of various barbaric techniques such as pruning, cutting, and felling/thinning/colocating in residential and non-residential built environments. Park wood, driveway edge, road verges, garden and forest vegetation are all in the cross-section of attention for the tree service industry. They are also responsible for the cleanliness and health of our environment by preventing illegal cutting, removal, and disposal of trees and other plant life.
Tree services can also provide necessary maintenance to property owners whose yards suffer from erosion, excessive wind, fire outbreaks, tree diseases, insect infestation, and structural deterioration caused by storm damage. The most common service offered includes clean-up following a storm, removing dead, dying, injured, or cracked trees, pruning thinned areas, re-potting damaged soil, tree removal, tree thinning, and associated tree removal/plantation repair. The tree service can also provide preventive maintenance to prevent future tree damage and destruction caused by storm damage. This preventive maintenance can save money by reducing the frequency of need for expensive tree removal/plantation repair, and/or, help to improve a home’s curb appeal.
In addition to tree services, wood chip mulching can benefit your trees by protecting them from the damaging effects of severe weather such as hurricanes, snow storms, and tornadoes. Wood chips will act as a natural sponge to absorb moisture, keep the leaves and branches of unwanted trees from falling on your property. Wood chips will also prevent erosion. Another important tree service is the removal of dead trees. This process is often referred to as “burning” or “pulling out the stump.” Tree removal/removal services include the cutting down of trees that are unsafe for housing, commercial, or other applications because of hazardous conditions, tree disease, or tree destruction caused by storm damage.
