Pruning

One of the wisest investments you can make in your property is to keep the trees and shrubs safe, healthy, and beautiful by maintaining a pruning program. This periodic removal of plant parts is done for safety, appearance, structural integrity, health, and restoration after storms or other damage. However, improper pruning can harm healthy plant growth. Choose your arborist carefully. Call upon experts who know that no cut should be made without a specific purpose.

Arborway Tree Service, Inc. follows the pruning standards for the National Arborists Association, National Association of Arboriculture and the International Society of America (ISA). These standards emphasizes that the quantity of wood removed is not as important as selecting the branches to remove for that particular tree. Therefore, we provide you with a service that offers the finest pruning techniques and the best results.

When to Prune

For most trees, the dead of winter is the best time to prune. Pruning during this dormant period minimizes sap loss and subsequent stress to the tree. It also minimizes the risk of fungus infection or insect infestation as both fungi and insects are likely to be in dormancy at the same time as the tree. Finally, in the case of leafy trees, those that lose their leaves in the fall, pruning when the leaves are off will give you a better idea of how your pruning will affect the shape of the tree. Pruning of fruiting and flowering trees is more specific. Our consultants at Arborway Tree Service, Inc. can help with those questions during your free consultation.

Bonus tip: If you have dead, broken, or hazardous branched in your trees that you are concerned about, please call us right away so that we can get someone out to your property as soon as possible to minimize the potential for property loss.

Crown Reduction

For safe, healthy trees never top a tree... doing so destroys the trees' natural structure and function. Rather, thin the tree and/or have a crown reduction performed by a certified arborist. Trees that would have been topped as standard practice many years ago, can be made safer, and actually are healthier and much more beautiful once thinning and crown reduction has been done properly.

Removals

Healthy tree removal is not a service that Arborway Tree Service, Inc. encourages, but is nonetheless a necessary part of landscape management. Selective removal of trees from crowded landscapes provides space for the remaining trees to grow and prosper, and when space for building additions and other site changes must be created, professional removal is a must.

Dead, dying, and defective trees, on the other hand, must be removed to protect people and property. Removing these trees provides an opportunity to replant the site with a young, vigorous tree that can make a positive contribution to the landscape.

Tree removal is the most hazardous aspect of arboriculture. Often, tree workers must remove trees growing in confined spaces near homes, utility lines, and other sensitive areas. Tree removal requires considerable experience and training to successfully perform this task.

At Arborway Tree Service, Inc., our arborists are highly trained in the art and science of tree removal. We incorporate the latest tools and techniques for performing tree removal work. In recent years, there have been considerable advances in the technology and equipment available for rigging and removing large trees. This ensures that trees are removed safely and economically with minimal disturbance to the site. Our goal in all of our tree work operations is to provide thorough clean-up of debris and cause minimal impact to surrounding vegetation.

Plant Healthcare

The single most important preventive measure you can take to enhance the health, beauty, and vigor of your trees is to Deep Root Feed your tree’s root system. A successful Plant Healthcare Program begins with the proper nutrients. Trees receiving regular applications of essential nutrients look better and live longer. The arborists at Arborway Tree Service, Inc. can detect impending problems and recommend the optimum time for fertilizing before signs of nutrient deficiency are visible and plant vigor has been compromised.

Why treat your roots?

Trees and shrubs in your landscape actually exist in a foreign environment and even “native species” can lack natural nutrients. In your landscape--where there is limited natural fertilizer--tree roots must reach out to obtain the nutrients they need. Obstacles such as compacted soil, rock ledges, buildings, pools, and pavements often impede their ability to obtain nutrients. Don't count on your lawn fertilizer to help. Only an insignificant amount--if any--will filter down to the tree roots.

When to treat?

You should treat your roots now, before the warning signs of nutrient deficiency are visible and the plant’s health has been compromised. The knowledgeable arborists at Arborway Tree Service, Inc. can diagnose the situation and recommend the optimum time to fertilize. Trees receiving regular applications of essential nutrients look better and live longer.

One to three treatments per year are recommended depending upon the environment your trees live in. Spring treatments are designed to stimulate seasonal growth and replenish soil nutrient levels. Summer treatments are designed to provide essential nutrients and water in the dry summer months. Fall treatments are designed to prepare the tree for the stresses of winter, and improve rooting and carbohydrate reserves

Our treatment solutions

Commercial Tree Management

Landscape management of Commercial Properties and Rental Properties is more challenging on properties with large tree populations. Trees have specific healthcare and maintenance needs not known to most landscape management companies. Keeping track of individual trees can be time consuming and confusing without a management plan backed up by a detailed tree inventory. Arborway Tree Service, Inc. can complete detailed tree inventories on your property. A typical inventory consists of various information including tree species, size, health and condition, adverse site conditions, and recommendations for action, if necessary. Trees are numbered and mapped for easy identification. Got a tree with an issue on your commercial property? Just call Arborway Tree Service, Inc. and tell us the tree number and the concern. We will cross reference our records and send an arborist out to the property. No need for you to go to the property. We will look at the tree and make recommendations based on your needs. Simple, easy, and effective.

Woodlot Clearing/Management

Woodlot clearing/management enhances the unmanicured, wooded areas of your property. These sections are thinned to remove dead, diseased, or undesirable trees. Woodlot management will open an overcrowded forest canopy. It also encourages forest regeneration, species diversity and the growth of desirable under story shrubs.

Woodlot Clearing/Management:
Expert Tree Removal and Tree Preservation

Tree removal can alleviate unhealthy competition and open up beautiful vistas. Your feature trees may be pruned to remove dead and diseased wood. We advocate pruning or reducing the presence of invasive species when they impair the ability of other species to develop. This woodlot management practice will ultimately prevent damage to feature trees and under story trees. The brush that results from woodlot management services is chipped within the woods and the bulky wood stacked in low rows. This enables the beneficial organic material to return to the forest floor, thereby maintaining the balance of nature on your property and providing essential nutrients for growth.

Cabling

Cabling/bracing reduces the risk of tree failure resulting from the following:

* Structural weaknesses (V-shaped crotch)
* Storm damage
* Mechanical injury
* Rubbing limbs
* Long, heavy limbs

Properly installed cabling systems are unobtrusive, but "out of sight" can't mean "out of mind". Cabling systems should be professionally examined once a year and again after each major storm. A climber should inspect the system every five years. Bracing is normally done as part of an overall cabling system, mainly to add strength to a weak "V-shaped" crotch. The technical term for "V-shaped" crotch is Co-dominant or multiple stem with included bark.
