Tree doctors in Swansea, IL use specialized tree care equipment made for making tree pruning, tree removal, stump grinding, tree spraying, and tree fertilizing easier, safer, and oftentimes less costly than if a homeowner did the tree work themselves. When possible, Swansea tree doctors use bucket trucks, also called cherry pickers, for tree pruning and tree removal work. Bucket trucks allow the tree doctor to move around the tree quicker than if the tree doctor had to climb the tree. Using a bucket truck allows the tree doctor to reach the tips of tree branches easier and quicker. The bucket truck gives the tree doctor a safe and stable platform for tree pruning or tree removal work. The bucket truck also allows the tree doctor to concentrate more on tree cutting rather than body positioning and making sure tree climbing ropes are out of the way and not tangled.

When tree doctors in Swansea need to remove a stump they use another specialized piece of tree care equipment called a stump grinder. A stump grinder can turn an unsightly stump into a pile of wood chips in minutes. Using a stump grinder to remove a tree stump is easier and quicker than digging out the tree stump or trying to pull out the tree stump with a truck. The other benefit of using a stump grinder to remove a tree stump is that the wood chips can sometimes be used elseware in the landscape. Another benefit of stump grinding is that it can be difficult to dispose of a tree stump that has been dug out or pulled out with a truck.

For tree spraying or tree fertilizing tree doctors in Swansea use trucks that have large tree spraying or tree fertilizing tanks on them. These large tanks are often divided on the inside, allowing the tree doctor to carry more than one formulation on a truck. By using split tanks tree doctors are able to do tree spraying to control both tree diseases and tree insects with just one truck. The tree doctor may also have one tank dedicated to tree spraying and another that the tree doctor uses for tree fertilizing.

Although homeowners could do many of their own tree care services, the benefits of hiring a tree doctor is the convenience and speed with which the tree care work can be accomplished. Tree doctors also have the knowledge of how and when to prune landscape trees planted in Swansea.
