Tree Care Services
Birchwood Services can help you determine whether or not your tree should be removed. Our team has the skills and equipment to efficiently remove your trees if they are…
- Dead or dying
- Interfering with new construction
- Crowding other trees
- Not appropriate for a particular area on the property
A permit may be required in your area. If required, you will be informed by our office or you can check directly with your village/township office.
If a stump needs to be removed on your property, Birchwood Services can help you. A stump is generally ground 8-12 inches below the ground surface. Call our office for pricing; each tree stump varies based on its size.
Tree Trimming and Pruning
Our team can help you determine the type of trimming or pruning that will improve and enhance the appearance of your trees. Some of these techniques include…
- Shaping your tree
- Removing branches (thinning technique) to increase life
- Removing dead or decaying limbs
- Removing limbs that interfere with wires, roofs, chimneys, and gutters
- Eliminating branches that rub against each other
Many homeowners call our office to get estimates on topping their trees. Topping your tree can be one of the WORST practices in tree care that is considered harmful. Many homeowners are not aware of how detrimental topping can be to their trees. Although many homeowners feel that the primary purpose of topping a tree is to reduce the size of the tree, topping stresses trees and can make them vulnerable to disease and insect infestations. Topping can cause decay and lead to sun scold (the tree splinters or cankers, and branches can die). Besides making your tree look “ugly,” topping can create hazards, such as shoots prone to breaking in windy conditions. An alternative to topping is to let a professional arborist determine what type of pruning is necessary to improve the health and safety of your tree.
Tree Cabling and Bracing
Cabling and bracing are two methods used to prolong the aesthetic look of trees. By nature, some trees are prone to have weak crotches and others develop weakness due to decay, storm damage, or other damage. By cabling or bracing, we can lengthen the amount of time a tree maintains its healthy look and reduce the possibility of breaking.
Tree Spraying and Fertilization
Our tree care services include spraying for apple scab, rust, and birch borers, and applying treatments for oak wilt, emerald ash borers, and pine moths. Our certified arborist will come to your property and diagnose the proper treatment that is necessary for the health of your trees.
