Frequently Asked Questions

When it comes to working with our clients, both commercial and residential, we strive to do our best. Here are a few questions that most of our clients ask about tree removal and pruning, lawn care, and landscaping tips.

What is the best time of year to remove a tree?

Anytime, year around. We service in all seasons.

What is done with the wood following a tree removal?

They can save the wood if they want or we can get rid of it. Some clients ask to have the wood diced up and saved for further usage.

What is involved in the tree removal process?

Either a 65-foot bucket truck or climber takes down the tree. We cut the flesh and then remove it.

Do I have to be home when the tree is being removed?

No, you do not have to be home.

What do I do if a tree that needs to be removed hangs over my neighbor's property line?

You have a right to do whatever you want if it’s on your property.

What is the purpose of stump grinding?

If you want to plant grass or flowers you might want to stump grid. Most of the time we just cut the flesh and remove it to the ground.

Will the stumps be removed the same day as the trees?

Most cases yes. Depends on what time the service starts.

Who identifies property lines?

The owner.

What's the best way to cut a tree branch without killing it?

Following are the few things you need to remember when cutting tree branches:

  • Avoid chopping off tree tops
  • Only prune trees at specific times, depending on the species of the trees
  • Use proper pruning techniques
  • Avoid over-pruning your trees
  • Be careful around clustered branches
How to trim a large tree?

Using a pruning saw, remove all dead branches within reach. To trim bigger branches, do an offset cut: Make an undercut into the underside of the branch about 18 inches from the tree trunk. Then make a top cut approximately 12 inches beyond the undercut. Continue cutting until the branch falls to the ground. Please note inappropriate pruning techniques can be harmful to your tree’s health, preventing growth. It’s best to hire professionals!

How much water does my lawn need?

During the summer months, cool-season grasses may become excessively hot or dry. When temperatures hit 90 degrees, cool-season lawns can become dormant and turn brown until colder weather and sufficient moisture reaches the soil. We recommend watering 2-3 inches each week throughout the early hours during the hot summer months.

A healthy grass needs 1-2 inches of water each week throughout the cooler months. When a lawn receives more water than usual, moisture accumulates in the soil. Too much moisture might cause illnesses to spread across the lawn. Allow your grass to dry out for a few days before continuing with the suggested watering schedule.

What should I do to prepare my lawn for the winter?

There are several things you can do to prepare your lawn for winter, including removing lawn debris, mowing the grass properly, aerating your lawn, applying topsoil installation, and fertilizing. Call our experts now for more information.
