As an ISA Certified Arborist, I encounter a variety of maintenance tasks and tree issues when it comes to providing my customers service. Presently, Mountain West Arbor Care is providing tree maintenance services to Idaho Falls.
Today I’d like to take a few moments of your time to provide a few tips and recommendations that can go a long way toward helping to ensure the health and vitality of your deciduous and conifer trees in Idaho Falls.
ISA Certified Arborist Pruning
Regular pruning of your trees is necessary to ensure they remain healthy, resistant to disease and decay, and critical to maintaining their aesthetic beauty.
As an ISA Certified Arborist I can also attest to seeing the outcome of poorly and improperly pruned trees as well. It isn’t a pretty sight and can dramatically damage the health of a tree.
Schedule regular pruning of your trees, preferably in the fall after the leaf cover has dropped, or in the very early spring. You’ll be fortifying your tree against disease and decay, helping to spur flowering and fruiting growth, and maintain your trees structural integrity. Also, always ensure you’re hiring an ISA Certified Arborist such as Mountain West Arbor Care for your tree pruning needs.
Don’t be fooled by imitators and “arborists”. It only takes one improper pruning of your tree to cause irreparable damage.
Just like pruning, deadwood removal helps to protect your trees from rot and decay, and helps to maintain your trees structure and appearance. Likewise, regular inspection for deadwood removal can locate hazardous limbs and branches that can pose a threat to your loved ones and your property.
Just as you do with pruning, schedule a time for deadwood inspection and removal for your trees. An ISA Certified Arborist can assist you with this maintenance.
Enhancing Your View
There is nothing wrong with enhancing the view from your home. View enhancement is a skilled process that selectively removes branches from your trees while maintaining the trees health and structure.
Like pruning, an improperly skilled person can cause irreparable harm to your trees when conducting a view enhancement. An ISA Certified Arborist can explain to you the best method and approach for selectively removing branches to enhance your view, increase levels of sunshine, and more.
Hazardous Tree Removal
Hazardous tree removal is one of the more dangerous and specialized aspects of tree maintenance and care. Be sure to hire an expert for this task. Each hazardous tree removal is different, presenting special considerations that must be approached with experience and technical care. On a recent hazardous tree removal we encountered a note-worthy consideration…
