Finding A Good Tree Service



Finding a good tree service in Bucks County, PA to meet your tree care budget and tree needs isn’t always an easy task. A homeowner may need to request more than one tree service to inspect their trees before they find a tree service they are comfortable with. When speaking with the arborist from the tree service ask questions about the arborist, the tree service, and how the tree service takes care of trees before actually hiring the tree service.

Here are some topics to discuss with the arborist before hiring the tree service:

  • Inquire about the qualifications of the tree service and the arborists that will be providing your tree care services.
  • Ask if the tree service will provide you with proof of insurance before beginning the tree care services.
  • Ask the arborist for references from other tree care customers.
  • Ask if the climbing arborists will use climbing spurs when trimming trees - they shouldn’t.
  • Ask if the climbing arborists know how to make proper tree trimming pruning cuts.
  • Find out if the tree service adheres to established tree care industry standards when performing tree care services.
  • Ask if the arborist or tree service is a member of tree care industry associations such as the International Society of Arboriculture, the Tree Care Industry Association, or a local tree care industry group.
  • Ask if the tree service employs ISA Certified Arborists, Certified Tree Workers, or Certified Tree Safety Professionals.

EMERALD ASH BORER ARRIVES IN PHILLY AREA

Warrington, PA

May 2, 2012

An invasive tree borer that has been marching throughout the Midwest for the last 10 years has been discovered on the doorstep of Philadelphia. The Emerald Ash Borer, first discovered in Michigan in 2002, has been found infesting Ash trees in Warrington.  An arborist from a tree service in Sellersville discovered the infested Ash trees while doing tree pruning work in Warrington.

There are several tell-tail signs to look for to determine if your Ash tree may be infested with Emerald Ash Borer:

Thinning foliage in the upper canopy of an Ash tree.
Bark splits on tree branches or on the tree trunk.
Sprouts growing from the lower trunk of an Ash tree.
Woodpeckers peeling bark from the Ash tree while searching for larva.
D-shaped exit holes on Ash tree branches or the tree trunk.

Tree services have several options available to control Emerald Ash Borer. Depending on the size and location of your Ash tree, a tree service can use tree spraying, insecticide soil injections, or trunk injections to control Emerald Ash Borer. Some of these Emerald Ash Borer control treatments need to be done annually, while others provide control for more than one growing season. If you have a medium or large Ash tree it's probably cheaper in the long run to control Emerald Ash Borer than it is to remove and replace your Ash tree.

Bucks County homeowners will need to decide if they are going to save their Ash trees with insect control treatments or remove their Ash trees. With Emerald Ash Borer in the area it's not a question of if they will find your Ash tree, just when they will find your Ash tree.

THOUSAND CANKERS DISEASE FOUND NEAR SELLERSVILLE, PA

Sellersville, PA

The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture announced the discovery of a new tree disease near Sellersville. The tree disease, called Thousand Cankers Disease, is spread by the Walnut Twig Beetle and is only found on Black Walnut trees. Prior to 2010 Thousand Cankers Disease was not known to be in the eastern United States. It was first detected in August of 2010 in Tennessee, then it was discovered in Virginia in 2011 and it has now made its way to Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

Black Walnut trees make up a small percentage of the hardwood trees in Pennsylvania, but due to their high value they are a significant component of the state’s lumber industry.

The discovery of Thousand Cankers Disease has prompted the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture to impose a quarantine on August 10, 2011 on certain walnut tree products and hardwood tree products in Bucks County. The quarantine includes, but is not limited to:

  • Walnut tree nursery stock
  • Walnut tree logs
  • All hardwood firewood
  • Ground hardwood tree mulch
  • Composted hardwood tree mulch
  • Walnut tree trimmings


Contact your local county cooperative extension office to report a possible case of Thousand Cankers Disease or call the Invasive Species Hotline at (866) 253-7189 or email to [email protected]

There is no known cure for Thousand Cankers Disease and tree spraying to keep the Walnut Twig Beetles is not practical due to their extended lifecycle. If your Black Walnut is infected with Thousand Cankers Disease you will need to consider finding a tree service near Sellersville to remove the tree.
