To be an arborist, you must have at least three years full-time experience working in the industry, and you must have passed a comprehensive exam covering all aspects of arboriculture. At Acorn, we have a certified member on staff who will is trained and equipped with the knowledge and tools to provide proper care for maples, oaks, spruces, dogwoods, and more. Poorly maintained plant life can be a huge liability on your part. Prune, trimming, and removal are all projects that should be taken care of by a professional who knows what they are doing. This can ensure that the job is done right, and done right the first time without any threat to you or your family's safety and well-being. We can also provide preventative maintenance services to keep your plant life healthy while reducing the risks associated with insects, diseases, or location problems.
Depending on the variety you have growing on your lawn will determine when this service is necessary. For example, maples, dogwoods, and oaks shouldn't be cut during certain times of the year as it can cause problems for growth in the future. This service can come in handy if you have growth over your driveway, home, or power lines, or it may be needed if there is storm damage on your property. We know what limbs and branches to cut to provide you with a healthy, beautiful plant.
You may need this service to remove diseased or storm-damaged branches or limbs, to thin the crown to add for new growth underneath, to cut down on the height, to remove lower branches which are hanging over a power line or obstructing other plant life, or to shape the growth for design purposes. Typically, this is a service that is performed during the dormant growing season - late fall or winter - as this can minimize sap loss and stress on the trunk and existing branches.
This service will be needed if you have your maple, pine, oak, etc. removed from your property. Not only is a dead stump an eyesore, but it can become diseased over time and cause additional problems for your lawn. A decaying trunk can be attractive to unwanted pests, including: termites, roaches, mosquitoes, snakes, spiders, and so on. We can grind the stump to provide you with wood chips for mulching or other purposes. It is also important to get this obstruction removed as it can be a tripping hazard on your lawn.
This service will be necessary from our trained arborist if the tree is old, diseased, or if you need to make room for new construction on your property. It may also be needed if the plant is growing over the home, too close to power lines, or for a variety of other reasons. All work will be handled by professionals so you can rest assured knowing that no branches or other pieces will land on your car(s) or other belongings and damage them.
Cables and braces can be used to provide structural support to a trunk or weak branches to prevent problems such as splitting or breaks. They are installed in strategic places throughout the crown to provide the support where it is needed most.
