Tree Care

We employ the most current techniques to preserve trees, both above ground and below:

  • Spikes (AKA gaffs & spurs) are only used when removing a tree.
  • Only light-duty trucks are used, and are not driven over unpaved parts of the trees’ root zone without owners’ permission. Aerial work is done using ropes and harnesses.
  • Cambium Savers (AKA Friction Savers, as seen on left) and false crotches are used routinely, devices which greatly reduce the damage which climbing and rigging ropes can cause to bark.
  • All pruning tools, with the exception of chainsaws, are sterilized before work on every site.
  • We use spent vegetable oil to lubricate our chainsaw bars so that we arenít spraying petroleum oil around your landscape.
