A few questions to ask yourself BEFORE planting a tree.

What functions will the tree serve? Do you want shade, a windbreak, a screen, or fall color? The answers to these questions will determine your species of choice.

What is the soil like? Sand or clay; poorly drained or well drained? Good quality soil that is uncompacted and well drained, with access to an adequate water supply, will promote healthy tree growth.

Does the site provide enough room for the tree’s branches and roots to grow? Make sure there are no utility wires or other obstructions underground or overhead that may interfere with the tree as it grows.

Proper tree care

Proper tree care can often be a mystery. Plant a tree and nature will take care of the rest, right? Not necessarily.

The trees in our yards, neighborhoods, and cities are a valuable asset, and they require our help to keep healthy. Trees contribute to the quality of our lives by cleaning our air, cooling and shading our homes, and increasing property values and the attractiveness of a community. Proper tree care is important because trees are an investment in the value of your home and the livability of your neighborhood.

This guide will provide you with techniques on how to properly plant, prune, and care for your trees, so that your trees are healthy and keep working for you.

Hiring an arborist like Top Tree LLC

When the job is too big for you to handle safely, it’s time to call in a professional. Hire someone who is bonded, licensed, and insured in Washington. Take your time and select a company you know is reputable. Look for a certified arborist, someone who has passed the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) certification exam. 

When choosing an arborist, be aware a good one rarely recommends topping and will be able to explain why it is no longer an accepted method of proper pruning. In addition, a good arborist will not climb your trees using spikes or spurs as these tools open wounds that provide a pathway for disease and insects to potentially weaken or kill your tree.
