Tree cavities are typically created when branches grow away from each other, causing a pocket or cavity to form in the tree trunk. While tree cavities are common, they can lead to a decline in a tree’s health over time. When it rains, water can form in the tree trunk and soften it from the inside out, which makes them more vulnerable to heavy rain or wind.
Some of the most common signs of a tree dying are peeling or missing bark, discolored bark or leaves, falling limbs, and limbs that don’t grow leaves. Dead trees are typically discolored and leafless.
As a rule of thumb, we generally recommend trimming your trees once per year to maintain their health. How often you should trim your trees depends on surrounding foliage, where the tree is at in its life cycle, and your own personal preference.
After we do a tree removal, we typically grind the stumps four to six inches below the surface of the ground. Stump grinding produces stump mulch, which we rake back into the area where the stump was. Over time, the stump mulch breaks down and grass can grow back over the area.
There are a few things we recommend doing before tree removal work begins. First, if you have a homeowner’s association you need to make sure you have their approval. You should also reach out to your city to see if they require a permit. Lastly, make sure any underground utilities, irrigation systems, or sewer lines aren’t in the way of the tree work being done.
No, homeowners don’t need to be home while our arborists are working as long as we have access to the property. You are welcome to stay and watch if you’d like.
Yes, we offer 24-hour emergency tree removal services. We give our emergency jobs priority based on the extent of the damage and the risk of danger.
Fall and winter are both great seasons to trim your trees because the trees are dormant. It’s a good idea to assess the health of your trees once the leaves have grown back in the summer.
