Trimming & PreservationOur certified arborists are trained in the right ways to keep your trees neat, tidy and healthy through routine pruning and preservation. Pruning and trimming trees doesn't just add aesthetics to your home, it also makes your trees safer by removing hazardous dead or weak branches. However, the health of the tree must also be taken into account. Pruning too many or the wrong branches puts significant stress on the tree. Our professionals carefully prune your trees to maximize the look of your landscape and preserve the health of your trees.
Fertilizing & Vertical MulchingWe employ the latest techniques in tree care and growth technology. Soil remediation (a.k.a Soil Density Reduction), and Vertical Mulching is used to ensure that your landscape remains healthy above and below the ground. Through pneumatic vertical mulching, we're able to fracture heavy clay soils to create more space and aeration for the tree root system. This technique doesn't damage roots or buried utility lines. Vertical mulching is an excellent technique used to partially alleviate soil compaction within the critical root zones of trees. Soil compaction is harmful as it reduces the amount of pore space in the soil normally filled by oxygen (micro-pores) and water (macro-pores).
