As you travel north of Stamford, you will enter New York State. The first town you will most likely drive through is Pound Ridge which very is nice and quaint. There were scenes from movies filmed in Pound Ridge such as the 1976 Dustin Hoffman thriller Marathon Man. Additionally, there have been tons of successful people that call Pound Ridge home or who once did such as the late Howard Cosell, Vera Wang, Tim Robbins, Christopher Reeve, Tom Brokaw and Blake Lively & Ryan Reynolds. We aim to make Pound Ridge as much of our home as we do for Stamford with our tree care services.
Just like watching a pro golfer beautifully swing a golf club, one would assume how easy it is to just take down a tree. A smooth golf swing takes years to develop as your entire body has to move through the swing and not just the arms. Removing a tree also takes technique and lots of teamwork especially those 50+ foot ones. We only perform the tree removal service if the tree can never regain full health. Sometimes, cutting off trees can leave more room for your properties as well, both residential and commercial. Plus, by having a professional remove a tree, you would have a lot more free time for yourself.
You can have the greenest lawn in your neighborhood yet that unwanted stump can ruin the landscape of it. A dead or diseased stump is not only grotesque looking but it can be harmful to the other organisms around it. The disease could spread to those other plants and anything that is decaying attracts unwanted insects. Those insects could find their way into your house and cause even more problems. We have stump grinding machines to shave that stump down to nothing. We can fix up that spot and make it look like the stump never existed in the first place.
As with solving any problem, you must first play doctor and give a proper diagnosis. Tree doctors are commonly called arborists but we thought the former term would sound catchier. Before we perform any real work on the tree, we have to find any issues it has and from there perform what we deem the right course of action. Like if we find that the tree is on its last legs and no chance of becoming fully healthy, we remove it. Also, if we see that some branches are getting too long to the point that it goes onto your house, we trim it.
Firewood & Wood Chipping
Since we work with wood all the time, we can provide you firewood. With any trees we take down, we know that they are not garbage after being uprooted. We are not woodworkers such that we can create chairs and tables out of them. However, those tree remnants can be used for fuel whether it is your fireplace, BBQ smoker or campfire. This will give you comfort in knowing that what was once yours is something of value. For the firewood to be created, we cut the fallen trunk into pieces and then dry it out by placing it in the sun. With the lesser part of the tree like branches, leaves and roots, we can create wood chips out of them. We have the proper machines to make this happen and the woodchips can be added to your garden or landscape. Additionally, wood chips could also add extra flavor for your BBQ.
The removal of any tree branch is called pruning. This is done for any branches that are either diseased, dead or have to be taken off to better shape the tree. Most importantly, pruning boosts a tree/shrub's health by minimized the chances of branches from falling off. Whenever a tree has a diseased branch, it is best practice to get rid of it before it falls off or spreads to the rest of the tree. It is just like how cancer is detected in one area of the body but spreads to another. Since pruning helps to better the tree's shape, extra light could be brought in and in turn provide further growth for the other plants.
Out of all the jobs we perform, tree trimming is probably our most common one. We have seen so many situations where tree branches grow to the point of hanging over someone's house or workplace that it could cause danger. Getting rid of that extra long branch will give your family a sense of security as well as minimizing the chance of any harm that really long branch would have caused if not attended to. Tree trimming also plays a big part in maintaining its natural beauty. Trimming too little of a branch or too much of one can actually distort a tree's beauty.
Deep Root Fertilization
There are plenty of cases where a tree is lagging in its growth. The most common cause for this is that the soil in which it is grown on does not have the necessary nutrients for it to grow better. To improve the growth, one of our arborists will create a fertilizer containing the necessary nutrients for the tree to grow and stay health for a long time. Injecting the fertilizer is not as simple as it looks either. Arborists have all the equipment necessary to make sure the fertilizer is properly injected into a tree's roots. If you notice something off with your tree's growth or health, give us a call.
Tree Cabling & Bracing
We have seen plenty of instances where a tree is healthy but something is off but its balance and structure. If there is concern that the wind can cause the tree to fall, we would provide cabling and bracing services. This would help maintain a tree's structure and keep it sturdy. We cable the tree by placing steel systems which will in turn make the tree get stronger as time goes on. We could also use rope systems as well to cable the tree.
