Trimming

Trees throughout the northeast have been extremely successful in their native environments as well as their managed environments such as your yard or office grounds. In fact, tree growth can often be so successful that eventually your trees’ health and livelihood, as well as the safety and security of people and property, depend on trimming existing problems or potential problems. Limbs of all sizes pose hazards in storms and high winds including snow and ice storms. Removing these hazards, as well as unwanted growth areas such as low limbs over walkways, is very important.

 

Pruning, Thinning, and Crown Reduction

Tree pruning is very important to the health of your trees in addition to improving the aesthetics and overall appearance. Tree pruning eliminates significant weight from the tree's branches improving the resiliency of your trees while allowing the tree to better withstand wind, snow and ice damage. Crown cleaning includes removal of dead, diseased, crowded and weak branches.

Pruning also allows better light exposure to the whole tree which improves the health of the tree and its appearance. Furthermore, flowering and fruit trees produce more during healthy pruning cycles. Fruit trees as well as many faster growing species often benefit in appearance and strength from a crown reduction. A thorough crown thinning, cleaning and reduction will help ensure your trees will avoid limb failures and possible disease symptoms.

 

Takedown/Removal

Unfortunately, trees sometimes have to be taken down and removed from your settings which can be a daunting task. Sick, dying or dead trees pose a serious risk to persons and property including liability if your tree, or parts of your tree, fall outside your property. Trees that grow too close to power lines or immoveable sewage or drainage systems may have to be completely removed before property or utility damage occurs. Proper and safe tree removal can make the difference between a dangerous liability hazard and just another yard improvement.

 

Cabling/Bracing

Cabling and bracing is a support technique using hardware to provide stability and strength to susceptible trees. Over time trees may be affected by wind, snow, ice or storm damage or even significant weight from their own canopy weakening trunks and branches. If the affected trees are not provided support from cabling and bracing they could eventually fail. In addition, cabling and bracing can be used to influence the direction of growth for tree trunks and branches providing improved aesthetics.

 

Stump Removal

In addition to tree removal, stumps are often the only part left over from a lost tree and can cause interference problems with your yard and landscaping plans as well as just being an eye sore. Stump grinding can be dangerous business so we are completely licensed and insured and can remove stumps from your landscape up to 6 inches below ground.

 

Installation/Planting

Trees are not only an aesthetic and environmental improvement to your property if planted and cared for properly, they can also be a lifetime investment. Replacing a sick or dead tree can be a difficult and expensive exercise so proper installation and planting can be essential.

 

Lightning Protection

Tree, like many other tall objects, are susceptible to lightning strikes that can cause serious damage to the tree as well as other surrounding objects. Installing lightning protection such as copper conductors connected to ground rods can significantly help struck trees survive with minimal damage. Lightning protection can be extremely affective when installed properly and maintained. Trees are living, growing objects so the fasteners, conductors and ground cables will have to be adjusted over time.

 

Emergency Storm Work

Storm damage to trees can be extensive not only to the tree but to surrounding property as well. Our ISA certified arborists use modern techniques and equipment to effectively and efficiently remove tree damage without causing further damage to your property. Our emergency storm work can include tree and branch cleanup, stump removal and debris hauling, in addition to tree staking and bracing, tree trimming and pruning and replanting if necessary. We provide emergency response service so you can be at ease that your emergency storm work will be resolved quickly and correctly.

 

Insect/Disease Control and Treatment

Trees are a beautiful and functional part of any landscape and provide pleasing aesthetics and shade. Trees are also at the mercy of their outdoors environment so insect control and disease treatment are important services that we provide. Our certified arborists can effectively evaluate your tree’s health, insect exposure and damage and provide you with the most effective treatment options.

 

Hazard Evaluation

Tree hazard evaluation is certainly not an exact science. The certified arborists at Georgetown Fine Pruning and Tree Care are experienced in examining the risk factors and defects in weakening trees which could lead to failure.

 

Landscape Lighting

Landscape lighting brings out the best features of your yard adding curb appeal and safety to your home. Proper landscape lighting can also increase security – a well-lit yard discourages criminals.

Soft, natural lighting not only increases visibility at night for driveways, pathways and entrances, but showcases your landscape and architectural features and is great for enjoying your yard at night for parties and BBQ’s.

Lighting can be used for gardens, trees, water features, statues, driveways and walkways, decks, patios, gazebos and other outdoor living spaces.

 

Tree Trimming for Satellite Dish Signal Quality

We work with your satellite dish installer to make sure dishes are properly aligned with the orbiting satellite without any obstacles that would cause interference. Locating a dish where trees will partially block the satellite signal will result in a lower than normal signal level.

Whether at the time of installation or after trees have grown, we can trim branches or remove trees in your yard that are blocking the line of sight to the satellite and greatly improve or restore your signal quality.
