The word “arborist” is a special designation that indicates a particular individual has undergone extensive training in the field of tree care. Arborists are trained and licensed under the International Society of Arboriculture, or ISA for short. During their training, arborists are required to have several years of hands-on experience to qualify for their certification. Hands-on training allows arborists to be ready for real-world situations they may encounter while trimming a tree or looking for the root cause of a tree that is ailing.
During their training, arborists must also undergo coursework. Coursework covers everything from proper pruning techniques to signs of nutrient deficiencies. These studies give them the knowledge they need to figure out problems that a tree is experiencing.
At VI Tree Service, our arborists have a combined 50 years of experience. In that time they have displayed stellar safety records and saved hundreds of trees that otherwise may have died.
While it’s not advisable to cut down trees willy-nilly, sometimes it is necessary. Despite the beauty that trees add to a space, there are times when their presence is detrimental to the safety of humans and property.
From the roots all the way up to the canopy, trees can cause problems with the property. Tree roots have a nasty habit of growing into concrete structures like sidewalks and foundations and destroying them. Overgrown branches are at risk of cracking under high winds or heavy snow loads and falling on houses or vehicles. Limbs can grow into power lines and threaten to snap them.
Whatever the need, the tree removal specialists at VI Tree Service can help. Our special tools and equipment allow us to safely go where other tree companies can’t. If you’ve been turned down by another tree company, give us a call.
The best time of year for pruning and trimming trees, even evergreens, is when they are dormant in the winter months. When trees are trimmed in the wrong season they become more susceptible to infection and infestation from tree pests that can cause permanent damage to the tree, although dead limbs can be trimmed out any time of year.
When pruning trees, it is important to follow the natural shape of the tree. Pruning is usually done to enhance the natural shape and amend the tree air that can circulate through its foliage. As an arborist prunes a tree, they will know what branches are weak and overgrown and they will remove them to help the tree grow better.
All too often, people have a tree removed only to be left with an ugly stump. What is the point of having a tree removed if you have to watch a stump decay over the course of many years? As you wait for the stump to rot, you will constantly be working around it and unable to do anything else with the spot where the tree once stood. Fortunately, you can get help with stump grinding from VI Tree Service.
