As trees grow, they need direction. This may be in the form of pruning, thinning, or removing deadwood. Groundskeeper's professional
arborists have specialized training and equipment and an “eye” for what needs to be done. Pruning enhances the appearance and value
of landscaping, but proper pruning is essential for several reasons.
+ Removes weak, dead, storm damaged, diseased, or interfering branches
+ Can be used to train growth patterns of young trees
+ Minimizes the risk of storm damage
+ Provides clearance for streets, sidewalks, driveways, structures and overhead lines
Although we consider every option to preserve your trees, sometimes, due to poor condition, location, or risk, removal is the best management
option. Some removal projects are routine, while others require highly technical skills, including working around utility lines or complex
rigging. We have Arborists and crew members with all the skills necessary to safely complete the most challenging and hazardous removals. Groundskeeper is also equipped to grind stumps of any size.
The first line of defense against pests and diseases is plant health. The healthier a tree or shrub, the better it is to naturally fend off insects and diseases. Our primary focus is preventive pest management through overall tree care.
Even with preventive maintenance, sometimes your trees may still have problems. Our Certified Arborists will evaluate your trees and recommend the most effective and environmentally sensitive management approach.
Groundskeeper Landscape Care’s Certified Arborists can provide various consulting services, including tree surveys. A tree survey
is an essential part of your tree management plan. It gives the type, number, location, and health of your trees and can be used as
a baseline for an overall tree management plan. Many communities now require surveys as part of construction permit processing. Our experienced surveyors can undertake surveys from individual inspections to large populations numbering 1,000 + trees.
