SAFE TREE REMOVAL
At Waterford Tree Service, tree removal is just one of the many services we specialize in. Tree removal is the most dangerous procedure for an arborist. The worker is often high in the air, in a confined space or very near power lines. Each removal is unique and requires a unique approach. Whether the tree is very large or in a hazardous place, we have the right equipment, knowledge and experience to do the job safely and properly.
Yes, your brother-in-law has a chainsaw and a weekend free and owes you a favor. Unless it’s a very small tree, I would advise against this. Trees are highly unpredictable and the way they bend, twist and spin isn’t easily predicted or controlled. Our equipment is specialized and our team approach is organized. We prepare for all possible outcomes. All workers wear the required safety equipment including hard-hats and safety goggles.
WE CONSULT WITH A CERTIFIED ARBORIST
At Waterford Tree Service we have an ISA (International Society of Arboriculture) certified arborist that we consult with for specialized situations. What does this mean for you? A certified arborist’s credentials identify them as having a minimum of three years of full-time experience in the tree care industry. They have passed an extensive exam that covers all facets of arboriculture. The scope of their knowledge goes from the top all the way below the tree’s root system. A certified arborist is trained in the science of planting, maintaining and caring for your trees. They are also required to stay current and continue their education in order to keep that certification. They are always kept abreast of any changes and the most current techniques. There isn’t anyone more qualified or competent to consult and care for your trees and landscaping.
Your trees need to be routinely inspected for disease, decay, pest infestations, wounds and general health. Catching these problems early can help save your precious trees. Often, catching problems early
can end up costing a lot less to remedy the situation. Trees are more than aesthetically pleasing. They provide shade, privacy, sound-proofing and a great place to hang a tire swing. More importantly, studies have shown that trees can add as much as 10-25% to your home’s property value. Having a professional inspect your trees on a regular basis is a fiscally responsible thing to have done. Wouldn’t you rather have that tree that is about to have a very large limb fall on your home, brought to your attention before it happens?
If you have ever given up on digging a stump out of the ground yourself, the idea of grinding that stump down instead, sounds pretty good. So, if you are tired of mowing around those eyesores, we can grind down any size stump you have, to a depth of 12 inches below ground. We can go deeper if your needs require that. Grinding down a tree stump safely takes knowledge and some experience. It’s best left to the professional. We will call the proper authority and have all underground utilities and lines marked off. We work quickly and methodically so we take up no more of your time than we have to. Stump grinding and or stump removal is a dangerous chore, we know how to do things safely and properly.
When we are finished grinding, we meticulously clean up every last wood shaving and that stump(s) is just an annoying memory. The ground can then be covered up and grass grown or any other purpose you desire. And, of course, we will discount stump grinding services if you have a quantity of stumps to take care of.
TREE TRIMMING AND PRUNING
At Waterford Tree Service we are the experts at trimming and pruning trees. This is very important in keeping your trees healthy and manageable. Although technically you can trim and prune trees at any time of the year, it’s best to do this when they are dormant. With the exception of a hazardous condition, as when a tree or limb is coming too close to a power line.
We know the correct size branches that can be removed and the ones that should be left alone. The branches with u-shaped joints should be left for support and branches that are weaker with v-shaped angles should be trimmed or removed, thinning out more room for the stronger branches to grow in. When trimming or pruning is complete, the living crown to tree height ratio is two-thirds. These are just a few of the many techniques used when pruning and trimming. It’s one of the best things you can do for your trees, ensuring long and healthy lives. So call Waterford Tree Service and show your trees some love.
