Pruning and trimming otherwise healthy trees not only improves the look of your property, it helps avoid future problems.

Transplanted trees must be watered two to three times a week in dry or hot weather for at least the first year.  

Deadwood consistently at the tree’s top indicates root stress, which often results from lack of moisture or construction damage. 

For work requiring dry ground in the summer, call six to eight weeks before the dry weather comes. We also have plastic alturnamats and rubber-tracked machines for most other situations. For trees in tight locations, we have a 96’ Palfinger tree crane to cut, group, and set down limbs robotically.  

Consider removing trees with 40% or more dead circumference. 

New research shows lack of water makes many transplanted maple trees more susceptible to sunscald. In order to prevent Emerald Ash Borer damage, trees must be treated with a pesticide from May through August. In Cole County, 2021 is likely the last year that some of the trees will be salvageable.

Cedar and natural double ground mulch that has biodegraded green wood material mixed in can add nutrients to the roots it covers.

We sell black, brown, and red dyed mulch with longer lasting color.
