Why Trees Need Routine Care

Trees do not live forever. Trees require care to reach their full life span. While a tree may be strong and tall, keeping them alive is a fragile endeavor.  The “skin” of a tree lay just below the protective bark. One can think of it as a glove over the entire branch, trunk, and root system.  It is only 3 cells thick.  Very fragile.  This “skin” is the only living tissue of the tree.  Damage a significant portion of it, and the tree is in danger of dying.

Further, each branch of a tree corresponds to a root. Kill that root and no nourishment goes to the related branch, and it will die.

Proper tree maintenance includes appropriate nourishment, and protection from disease and insect infestations.  Improper pruning techniques can severely damage trees, leaving them vulnerable to weaknesses, which in turn can lead to an unsafe environment for property and people.  Trees should be inspected, pruned, and nourished regularly.

Want to have healthy trees for generations to come?  Tom Day Tree Service will help you manage your tree assets for the long term.  We’ve been doing this, right here, since 1974.

Techniques for Removing Trees

Improperly felled trees can crash down on your home, car, or healthy trees, and a dead stump can sometimes serve as a disease vector that will put the rest of your trees at risk. By hiring the certified tree care professionals at Tom Day Tree Service, you can avoid these potential problems. Because our experts have years of tree care under their belts, they know exactly how to fell trees safely.

If space allows, we can notch the bottom of the tree to control the direction of descent and fell it in one piece. If space is limited, we can use the cut and chuck method. This technique involves scaling the tree and cutting it down in small sections from the top to the bottom. If the space is extremely tight, we can even lower the cut sections by rope for maximum control.

When To Remove A Tree

At Tom Day Tree Service, we can help you determine if and when a tree needs to be removed, preventing damage to your property from wandering roots or falling branches.

Tree Size. One danger of planting trees on a small lot is the potential for the tree to outgrow its space. It can potentially damage nearby pipes, pavement, structures, drop leaves or branches outside your property line, or simply block your view. Or your tree might have an overdeveloped crown that makes it susceptible to wind damage. Some species grow faster than others, and different varieties have different weaknesses and vulnerabilities, so there’s no timeline for tree removal. Having regular service from the professionals at Tom Day can help you identify trees needing removal before they damage your property.

Tree Health. Your tree may have a fungal infection that has killed half the branches, or become diseased, or damaged by drought, insects, or lightning strikes, or has simply expired from old age.

Topping. Unfortunately, if you’ve had your tree topped by another tree service, you might end up needing tree removal. Topping can result in significant stress to trees, including UV damage to bark, an inability to produce enough food, vulnerability to disease and insects, and unhealthy regrowth. Any of these factors has the potential to be fatal. If you have a sick tree, let us attempt to cure it. If it cannot be cured, we will then discuss removal options.

Attempting To remove A Tree by Yourself

Tree removal is dangerous if performed by untrained individuals, and may result in personal injury or property damage. Felling a tree—even a small one—is dangerous if not handled by professionals. Don’t risk injury to yourself or damage to your property by attempting to remove the tree yourself, or hiring unqualified workers!

Instead, hire Tom Day Tree Service and rest assured that the job will be done right the first time.

Our certified tree removal experts can quickly and safely fell any sort of tree, using industry-approved practices and in accordance with OSHA safety standards. Trust us with your tree removal—you won’t regret it!
