Tree Healthcare

Any arborist knows that there is more to tree work than just pruning and removing trees.  Improving the health and safety of your trees is a great way to extend their lifetimes and reduce risks associated with them.  Every tree and every situation is completely different, and our ISA Certified Arborists are ready to listen, assess, and recommend services to keep your trees growing for years to come.

Our Tree Removal Services

Lightning Protection

Reduce risk of damage

Lightning strikes can be deadly for trees, some, more quickly than others.  Tree lightning protection systems are recommended for large trees, trees with historic or sentimental value, and trees with few other lightning “targets” around them.  A lightning protection system is a collection of copper terminals, connectors, and wire that is installed high up in the canopy of a tree, runs down the main trunk, and is then buried in the surrounding soil.  These systems allow lightning to flow through the copper and dissipate into the ground, and greatly reduces the risk of damage to the tree itself.  Click here to learn more about Lightning Protection Systems.

Air Spading

Remove harmful stem girdling roots

An air spade is basically a power washer, except instead of using water to clean your sidewalk, it uses high pressure air to expose the root system of trees without damaging them.  We use these to break down mulch “volcanoes” when surrounding dirt or mulch is piled up too high against the trunk of a tree, and to expose stem girdling roots.  Stem girdling roots are roots that choke the tree, and should be removed before they get large enough to kill the tree.  Air spading also breaks up compaction in the soil, which is harmful to roots.  It can also be used to install root barrier systems, apply organic material, and in many other applications.  Talk to one of our arborists to see if air spading is right for you, and click here to learn more.

Cabling

Improve the structural integrity of your trees

Tree Cabling is the act of installing a steel cable in the canopy of a tree to limit the movement of major branches and improve their structural integrity. Tree Cabling is a service that can improve the longevity of trees that have grown in a manner that makes them prone to splitting, from co-dominant stems, to large, heavy branches, and more. It is one of the best defenses against storm damage in trees, and one of the most popular tree support systems in the field today.

Applications

Ensure the health of your trees

Prestige offers a full range of chemical treatments for trees and shrubs.  Our arborists can come to inspect your tree or trees, and work with you to create a plan to ensure their long term health.  We can identify and treat a wide range of pests from common insects to fungi and everything in between.  Biotic (or living) pests are often tolerable at low levels, and pose no risk to healthy trees.  However, arborist intervention is needed if pest populations get too high, invasive species are present, or some ecological imbalance is upsetting the natural order in or around your trees.
