Hire a Certified Arborist

The Arboriculture Society of Michigan points out the benefits of hiring a Certified Arborist to create and implement your tree health care plan:

Tree Selection

Many problems in tree care result from poor choices in the species and variety of tree. Some may be too large for the location. Others require different soil and water conditions than what is available. Non-natives are more likely to contract pest and disease issues. Picking the right tree to begin with is the first step in long term tree health.

Planting Trees

People assume it’s enough to dig a hole and put in the tree’s root ball, covering it up with the soil to fill it to ground level, adding water, and calling it done. Good planting techniques are more than this, including assuring the correct size of the planting hole, reducing disturbance to tree roots, and staking the tree correctly to support it during its initial years.

Tree Problem Assessment and Management

Trouble can develop even when the right tree is in a good spot. Incidental damage like cuts from mower blades, insect or disease infestations in wounds, and chemical or fertilizer over-application around the tree can create specific risks.

Pruning and Trimming Trees

Some tree varieties and many shrubs require regular maintenance through a carefully thought out trimming and pruning plan. Without this care, the canopy becomes overgrown, risking damage to the property around the tree. Done badly, the tree may not survive.

Tree Removal

Taking a tree out with safety and property protection in mind is only one step in the Kalamazoo tree removal process. Stump and major root removal ensures the area is ready for replanting or repurposing with minimal ongoing problems.

Emergency Tree Care

When the worst happens, you want your trees saved, if possible, and your property cleaned up as quickly as it can be. Storm damage may create only minor issues that are easily addressed or may require more intensive efforts to return your site to safety.

Expect Trained Crews

Our crews are trained to always keep your safety and property protection in mind. We receive continuing education from the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA), the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA), and the Arboriculture Society of Michigan (ASM). Our investments in learning the latest science, research and methods assure your peace of mind in selecting us for your tree health care planning.
