Trees provide significant benefits to our Tri-Cities area, but when trees fall and injure people or damage property, they are issues to address. Understanding and addressing the risks associated with trees makes your property safer and prolongs the life of the tree.
Our team can help you manage and maintain trees on your property and can provide treatments that may help reduce the risk associated with certain trees. We can assess any tree risk and may suggest one or more of the following:
- Remove the tree. While a home or a nearby power line cannot be moved, it is possible to move picnic tables, cars, landscape features, or other possible targets to prevent them from being hit by a falling tree.
- Prune the nuisance tree. Remove the affected branches of the tree. Because inappropriate pruning may weaken a tree, pruning work is best done by one of our ISA Certified Arborist.
- Brace and cable the tree. Provide support for weak branches and stems to increase their strength and stability. Such supports are not guarantees against failure.
- Provide routine maintenance and care. Older trees need routine care in the form of water, nutrients (in some cases), mulch, and pruning as dictated by the season and their structure.
- Remove the tree. Some trees with unacceptable levels of risk are best removed. If possible, plant a new tree in an appropriate place as a replacement.
We have a team with some of the only arborists in the Tri-Cities. Keep in mind that having trees on your property comes with a little bit of maintenance. With just a little maintenance, you can prevent most major pitfalls. You won’t have to be worried about trees causing property damage or even worse, personal injury. We look forward to discussing your tree maintenance needs. We have trained arborists in the Tri-Cities that are professional and that can answer any questions you have.
