As urban environments grow and change, proper tree management on both residential and commercial properties becomes increasingly important. Tree beneficial impacts include cleansing our air, providing cooling shade, calming our senses, and increasing property value. They are a vital part of maintaining good physical and mental health and provide necessary habitat for the variety of wildlife that live among us.
Within your landscape, trees can be one of the largest features and therefore require a certain amount of tree management that is very different from surrounding plants. They encroach on buildings, produce and drop leaves, seed pods, sap, and sometimes fruit, and require more space for their root systems than landscape plants.
NW Tree Specialist will help you identify and understand all of the tree management needs within your landscape, which will vary depending on the species of the trees you own. Some variety of trees require annual pruning where others may only need pruning on a five or ten year cycle. And when it comes to plant healthcare (PHC), hearty, native species require less care than more exotic and susceptible species.
Unfortunately, there are times when trees just don’t fit, cause problems, or in some cases become hazardous. Determining if tree removal is more pertinent than ongoing management takes a certain type of knowledge. Our ISA certified Tree Risk Assessors at NW Tree Specialist can identify potential risks and mitigation options for the trees on your property. This aspect of tree management cannot be overlooked, because while trees can be your landscape’s most valuable asset, they can also be your greatest liability.
Of course, identifying risks is one thing. Dealing with them is a whole other matter. Our tree crews at NW Tree Specialists possess the proper skills and knowledge and are outfitted with the latest tools and equipment needed to perform all types of arbor care. You can be assured that when we come onto your property, the work will be done as outlined in the work order and with the protection your property as a main priority.
For more information, please get in touch with us. Give us a call or send us a message. We would be happy to have one of our consultants out to your property and discuss your tree management needs. We look forward to hearing from you.
