Preserve your trees
You have beautiful trees surrounding your construction site or renovation project and want to protect and preserve them for the future. That’s what tree preservation is all about-using preventative measures to protect a tree when you know damage may occur.
Our certified arborists will be able to assess the situation and develop the best course of action for you. By taking the right steps at the beginning of your project, it’s possible to prevent or minimize any harm to the trees.
Have a damaged tree?
You may have a tree that’s diseased or has some broken branches and you’re wondering if it can be saved.
Ask the pros
Only a certified arborist, sometimes called a tree surgeon, is qualified to answer that question. There are many things to consider, such as the type and age of the tree and the extent of the damage.
A tree surgeon is an expert at treating damaged trees and the following are some of the techniques that may be used to extend the life of your tree.
