Proper tree care encompasses a number of different tree services. Each tree service is important in its own way to maintain the health of your landscape trees. Tree doctors in Canfield, OH can advise you on which tree services would benefit the individual trees in your landscape. Here are a few of the most popular tree care services offered by tree doctors in Canfield.

Tree Trimming

The most common service offered by tree doctors in Canfield is tree trimming. Proper tree trimming is a tree service that almost every landscape tree will need at some time. Tree trimming frequency varies depending on the tree species and its location in the landscape. Tree trimming is the practice of selectively removing tree branches. The most common reasons tree trimming is done is to remove dead tree branches, trim broken tree branches, remove crossing tree branches, remove low tree branches, remove tree branches close to wires, or to remove tree branches too close to a house or building. Proper tree trimming will help to keep landscape trees healthy, safe, and looking good.

Periodic tree trimming insures that dead or diseased tree branches will be removed before the tree branches become hazardous or pose a health risk to the tree. Dead tree branches, broken tree branches, and hanging tree branches should be removed before they fall and harm someone or damage your property. This is especially important for trees near buildings, walkways, driveways, or pools. Having routine tree trimming done also insures the tree canopy is properly thinned out. This can reduce the chances of storm damage hurting your landscape trees. Professional tree doctors have the equipment and skills to trim trees so the trees retain their natural shape and growth habit.

Tree Fertilizing

The three most important tree nutrients for trees in Canfield are nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. A basic tree fertilizing program will supply these three nutrients, but there are cases where other treatments may benefit landscape trees. Sometimes the addition of micronutrients such as iron or manganese to a tree fertilizing program will benefit certain landscape trees. Root stimulants can be used in a tree fertilizing program for newly planted trees. Beneficial fungi, called mycorrhizae fungi, are added to a tree fertilizing program to enrich the existing soil when the native topsoil was removed during construction.

Insect & Disease Pest Control

Native landscape trees are sometimes virtually pest free, while other landscape trees are constantly attacked by insect pests or tree diseases. Insect and disease control on trees and shrubs can be done by various means, depending on the insect or disease that is attacking the tree. Tree doctors in Canfield may recommend tree spraying, tree trunk injections, or soil injections depending on the insect pest or tree disease to be controlled. A tree doctor can also tell you if the tree can be saved or if tree removal would be a better option.

Tree Removal

Most tree doctors in Canfield would rather save trees, but sometimes tree removal cannot be avoided. Tree removal, especially removal of mature trees, is a dangerous task. A tree doctor has the equipment required to safely remove your mature trees and dispose of tree limbs and the wood from the mature tree removal.

Stump Grinding

Total tree removal includes stump grinding. Depending on the location in the landscape a tree stump may be a hazard, a mowing obstacle, or simply unsightly. Stump grinding will turn the tree stump into wood chips. Tree stump removal allows a new tree, or grass, to be planted instead of leaving the unsightly tree stump in the landscape.

Tree Cabling & Bracing

Poor tree structure, tree decay, or cavities in trees are some of the reasons to have tree cabling or tree bracing installed. Tree cabling or bracing is done to help support structurally weak branch unions. Installing tree cabling or bracing does not guarantee tree safety, but it may reduce the potential for serious tree damage to occur. Tree cabling or bracing might also reduce storm damage on your mature trees.

Girdling Roots

Occasionally, a tree root will grow around a tree trunk instead of away from the tree trunk. If the tree root is not removed it may start to hamper the natural flow of water and nutrients in the tree trunk. Girdling roots eventually lead to decline in the canopy of the tree. The decline in the tree canopy may progress to the point where the tree becomes weak, unsightly, and tree removal will be necessary.

If girdling roots are not too large they can be severed. This may involve cutting the tree roots with hand pruners, loppers, or using a mallet and chisel to cut the tree roots. A tree doctor will probably recommend tree fertilizing if girdling roots need to be severed.

Lightning Protection For Trees

Lightning can instantly kill or seriously damage mature landscape trees. Installing a lightning protection system in a mature tree is usually less than the cost to remove a tree that is struck by lightning. Lightning protection systems direct electricity down braided copper wire to a buried grounding rod and are usually installed in mature trees or historic trees.
