Here is What We Offer:
Tree pruning can be divided into 4 categories, Full prune, Dead Wood prune, Structural prune, and Specialty prune
1. Full prune – a complete pruning which includes removing dead branches, lightening heavy ends, removing crossing limbs, thinning and shaping of the tree.
2. Dead Wood prune – removing dead branches only, usually 1” and larger in diameter.
3. Structural prune – this is a safety prune, which includes dead branches (1” and larger in diameter) and hazardous limbs; with younger trees structural pruning means pruning for proper structure and for optimizing growth.
4. Specialty prune – includes specific pruning orders given by the client such as specific branches to be removed.
**Trimming Recommendations are as follows – a full prune should be done once every 3-5 years, and then a maintenance prune every 1-2 years
We use a slow released Nitrogen fertilizer (organic) that is injected into the root system to keep your tree healthier longer. We also have specific fertilizer for trees overly stressed from a harsh winter, newly transplanted trees, and trees experiencing drought weather conditions.
We provide complete removal of most trees except those of historical value or of community interest. We also provide stump grinding to remove stumps, including the grindings below grade.
Emerald Ash Borer: The emerald ash borer is a type of beetle that develops under the bark of ash trees. Its scientific name is Agrilus planipennis. It is a type of beetle in the family Buprestidae. Emerald ash borer (EAB) is an extremely destructive insect of ash trees (Fraxinus species), including the kinds of ash (green ash, white ash) that are widely planted in Colorado. It is far more damaging to trees than any other insect that previously has been found in the state and, as populations of the insect increase in the infested areas, it is expected that emerald ash borer will ultimately kill almost every unprotected ash tree presently growing in North America.
We use a machine called a stump grinder to chew away at the stump of wood that is left after a tree has been removed. The stump grinder uses a powerful blade to reduce the stump into smaller wood chips, eventually clearing the stump to below ground level. This gives you the space to extend your lawn, put in a garden or even plant a new tree! Additionally, you can use the wood chips to fill the hole or as mulch. Or we can remove the chips for a small fee.
