TREE INSPECTION

PRUNING

Next to watering, pruning is the most common tree maintenance procedure. It is often necessary to improve tree structure, enhance vigor or maintain safety.

Removing foliage from a tree can have distinct effects on its growth. After pruning, the growth that occurs takes place on fewer shoots, so the new growth tends to be longer and stronger than it would have bene without pruning.

Because each cut has the potential to change the growth of a tree, no branch is removed without a good reason. Our team of highly trained arborists will perform the job safely, while determining the type of pruning your trees need to maintain or improve their health, appearance and safety.

MULCHING 

Tree owners often overlook that a significant aspect of tree health is the root system that remains out of sight beneath the surface. Mulching is an effective way to reduce environmental stress by providing trees with a stable root environment that is cooler and contains more moisture than surrounding soil. Regular mulching also protects the tree’s trunk and helps prevent competition from weeds and turf.

Perficut offers a variety of mulch layer options, including composted wood chips, peat moss, pine straw and other organic materials.

FERTILIZATION 

Like all plants, trees require certain essential minerals to function and grow. However, soil conditions in our community vary greatly, making the proper selection and use of fertilizer a complex process. In some instances, soils may not contain sufficient nutrients for growth and development. In other instances, the soil may provide everything that is needed, and supplementation will cause the tree harm.

Our Perficut Arborist will arrange to have your soil laboratory tested and give advice on application rates and timing as well as the best blend of fertilizer for each of your trees.

REMOVAL

With proper maintenance, trees are attractive and can add considerable value to your property. Poorly maintained trees, on the other hand, can be a significant liability. Pruning or removing trees, especially large trees, is extremely dangerous work. Our climbers and arborists have the experience and equipment to properly perform the task and can make recommendations on a suitable replacement.
