Clearing The Way
The importance of trees in our life is the same as our family. Trees are an important source of oxygen and natural air filtration. Trees are natural water conversation and filtration systems. Trees are the source of food, fruits for animals, birds, and humans. Trees are home for birds. Trees are play-field for kids, birds, and monkeys.
Trees are important for the environment, economic, social and personal development. In order to preserve the harmony between nature and our social duties, it takes a trained and experienced professional to understand the terrain and strike a balance. With this said, nature requires maintenance.
Utility Line Clearing
It is known that trees conflicting with live power lines can be a hazard and are the leading cause of unplanned power interruptions. It’s understood the lack of power severely impairs your home, farm, and business, not to mention the ability to lead a healthy life during blistering cold winters. Trained and certified arborists are necessary to safely and efficiently shape or remove hindering trees.
When To Know Are You Out On A Limb?
Most routine pruning to remove weak, diseased, or dead limbs can be accomplished at any time during the year with little effect on the tree. As a rule, growth and wound closure are maximized if pruning takes place before the spring growth flush. Some trees, such as maples and birches, tend to “bleed” if pruned early in the spring. It may be unsightly, but it is of little consequence to the tree.
Heavy pruning of live tissue just after the spring growth flush should be avoided, especially on weak trees. At that time, trees have just expended a great deal of energy to produce foliage and early shoot growth. Removal of a large percentage of foliage at that time can stress the tree. There are a few tree diseases, such as oak wilt, which spread through pruned wounds; providing access to pathogens (disease-causing agents). Susceptible trees should not be pruned during active transmission periods. So, it is important to understand your tree’s cycle to know the best time to prune.
Know Your Expert Arborists
To work near power wires additional training is required for arborists. Current and up-to-date training is necessary to keep up with changing technologies and electric line safety guidelines. Keeping in close contact with your local utility companies is necessary. We regularly review state, local, and federal guidelines for line clearing and also hold local training for our team and local municipality linemen.
