Tree Care
Trimming or removing trees that pose a potential risk to your home or business gives your trees a fighting chance against high winds and torrential rains especially in a hurricane . A tree's canopy resists the wind, if not trimmed, like a huge sail or umbrella. When a tree can no longer withstand the high speed winds, it will break or topple over at it's weakest point or heaviest side. Trees uprooted from storms are blown over easily if they are immature or the ground is saturated by heavy periods of rain. Calling a tree company and expecting immediate service before a hurricane makes landfall is naive. Our phones do not stop ringing at the first sign of tropical activity or as a depression begins to form into a hurricane over open water. Even if the hurricane does not steer toward Florida, the fear of being unprepared or the probability of the storm to change direction, influences property owners to have their trees serviced. If we're removing a very large or tall tree as a hurricane approaches Florida and it's path is predicted to strike locally. We'll remove the entire canopy and leave the hearty portion of the stalk rooted in the ground to brave through the storm. This method of tree service can quickly alleviate the potential risk of wind-born debris, and fall damage. It lets us perform more removals for our customers before the storm arrives, prevents damage to property, and in a few cases has actually protected the home. When the storm has passed we return to remove the remaining stalk, buck up the wood and haul it off. If the local municipality is in charge of storm clean up and debris removal. Normally the wood is staged at the R.O.W. (Right-Of-Way), a portion of your property located near the road. The debris will be removed by individuals contracted by your local municipality. 
We ask that you please be patient after a hurricane. Our crews work 7 days week, dusk till dawn removing trees from damaged homes, utility lines, and roads. 
It can take weeks if not a few months to finish removing your stalk. We will be busy tending to customers that did not have their trees serviced before the storm and in all likelihood have fallen. We've had the stalk of a tree, left at a customers home before hurricane Irma, protect the home by blocking a neighbors falling tree which had not been serviced before the storm. After a hurricane or severe storm we are busy removing trees and debris for days even a few months.
Customers are serviced by the severity and critical nature of the job.
Removing trees or cutting trees down is the last coarse of action our company desires to perform for our customers. Routine trimming over the coarse of a trees growth can improve a trees health and also the odds of surviving wind gusts during severe weather. Trees also need to stay "clean" by removing dead wood in the canopy and branches. Trimming new growth sprouts on limbs and leads we call "suckers". Cankers and diseases can sometimes be cured through spray or tree injections but in most cases the trees are removed. We also use cables on tree limbs and stalks to help balance a tree that's growing rather peculiar until the tree can support it's unbalanced weight. Tree care is only successful when customers are given the correct information to properly care for their trees in order to grow into a strong and beautiful investment. Awareness of possible hazards to property and signs of damage to the tree from nature itself.

Other forms of tree care that are sometimes needed to help a tree grow healthy are tree injections. A service we offer to invigorate and protect trees. Also known as stem injection or trunk injections it's administered by drilling a few holes around the base of a tree and using either a multi-macro injection system or a micro injection feeder. Both injection systems use a formula that helps the tree resist diseases and pests while also providing it nutrients. Micro injections are non-evasive and give the tree a small concentrated dose that gradually helps a tree. Sometimes a tree could be in jeopardy from infestation or disease and an aggressive injection system is needed. Several holes, depending on the caliper or diameter of the tree, are drilled around the base and ports are installed. Little check valves that only allow the formula to enter. Injectors connected to a pumping system are inserted into the ports and the antibiotics or nutrients are administered under pressure in a large quantity. If this type of injection fails to help the tree recover not much else can be done to save the tree.
Cabling trees is normally rigged when a young tree is planted in the ground so the roots can grow without being jostled or disturbed. The canopy of immature trees are heavy enough to topple from gusts of high winds and cabling supports the trees until a time the cables can be removed. Cabling is also used on older trees whose limbs have grown abnormal and it would be taxing on the trees growth if removed. We cable the abnormal limb to a dominant limb or the stalk to adjust how it grows. If a limb becomes to heavy and partially separated or broken from the stalk and the customer wants to attempt to save the tree. We can cable the limb in place to prevent it splitting further and hopefully repair itself over time. Cabling trees is rarely requested by our customers but it is a service we provide and an essential part of Tree Care.
