Arborist Tree Care High River

In association with Rowley Tree Care

Arborist High River

Trees are part of our landscape.  They create beautiful backdrops for our viewing pleasure.  Planting them, taking care of them, nurturing them keeps us busy and the reward is watching these trees grow to their maturity.  Providing us shelter from the sun, bearing the brute of our winter winds and snow, and maybe even preserving a carved initial or two.  They truly become part of our landscape and our surroundings.  

But these trees require us to properly maintain them.  To keep them healthy, we need to be on the lookout for any disease or pest infestation so that proper action can be taken.  This maintenance and care will prolong the life and the health of the trees.  And other trees within the same vicinity.  If you have noticed something does not appear right or there has been a noticeable change in the appearance of the tree, reach out to an Arborist.  We are trained to evaluate the health of your trees and determine any corrective action that is needed for the benefit of the tree and the safety for all concerned.  Trust a professional Tree Service to evaluate the situation, propose a corrective plan, and execute the plan successfully.  Not all trees need to be removed, if treatment for a disease or pests is taken early enough.  Arborists can treat with soap solutions or chemical solutions as a remedy as well.  This is why it is important to consult with a Tree Service if you think there is an issue as soon as possible.

Tree Removal High River

Tree cutting actually requires quite a bit of skill.  Cutting down a tree and removing it is actually a very dangerous task.  A tree cutter will assess safety concerns, understand how and where to do the cut, and how to execute it without causing further harm or damage to the existing tree or other trees.  The arborist will minimize risk to other structures that are near by.

Once the tree has been cut or trimmed, the tree service will then remove the debris and clean up the site.  If in extreme cases that a tree had to be removed completely, the tree will be disposed of for you.  And any stump removed as well.

The Benefits of Routine Tree Trimming

Tree Trimming is required to be done on a regular basis for the overall health of your trees.  Trees are not indestructible.  They do endure damage or injury over time.  Branches break, which is actually an injury to the tree itself.  Branches die and begin to decay, causing health issues to the other parts of the tree.  And nature can cause for some unexpected damage from it’s storms and such.  Just like our bodies age over time, so does the parts of the trees such as branches, bark, roots, etc.  These parts make up the overall “body” of the tree and regular Tree Trimming can help identify any issues that may be coming to light.
An Arborist or Tree Service will first identify any deadwood that can be removed first.  These are branches or arms that are no longer supporting the overall health of the tree.  Removing these will help eliminate the risk of infection to the overall tree.  And will remove the hazard of unplanned breakage.  It is best to remove them before anyone or anything gets injured.
Then, the Arborist will inspect for areas of disease or infection and remove those.  By doing this, they will stop any advancement of infection or pests to the healthy parts of the tree.  If branches or stems are damaged and will eventually die off, we will remove them now as well. 

Next, after all of the above has been addressed, the Tree Service will assess the overall structure of the main part of the tree – the trunk.  We will prune or shape the tree so that the structure will continue to grow without interruption or injury.  We remove any parts that may be impending this.  Sometimes structures can become an issue.  We are not suggesting you remove the structures.  Rather, an Arborist takes into account the placement of the tree to it’s surrounding area and can pre-emptively trim and prune areas that will essentially train the tree to branch away from these structures.  But this is an ongoing process and needs to be part of the regular trimming and pruning.  And if it is a concern that the tree could potentially cause a hazard to a roof or garage, as an example, pro-active trimming can be done to avoid any issues in the future.

When a Tree Needs to be Removed

The Arborist will only recommend removal of a tree if it is absolutely necessary.  They will assess if there is any other means of keeping the tree first.  But the reality is that we must be mindful of safety first.  And unfortunately, sometimes the tree has become such a hazard that the removal of it is the only correct action.  We would much rather remove the tree under our control than have it come down under its own direction.  If the structure of the tree is unsafe or vulnerable, disaster could strike with the very next storm that rolls in.  We have seen vulnerable limbs ripped from trees and shot through people’s windows.  Or tree tops snap and come down onto roofs, causing damage and injury. 

Now, you may be able to remove the hazard by proper trimming or cutting.  But sometimes that is not the case.  If the tree is dying, deceased, or badly infected, it will need to be removed.  It is too much of a safety hazard.  This task can be a daunting thought due to the size of the tree or the location of the tree.  But a Tree Service comes with the right skills, expertise, experience, and equipment to tackle this.  There are many technics that an Arborist can use to bring down the tree safely, and then have it removed.  The average person should not attempt to do this.  There is extreme danger involved with bringing a tree down – other trees, power lines, structures and property, and obviously human life.  This should be done by a team of experts.  Arborists are trained and qualified to perform this for the safety of all.

Safety Concerns around Overgrown Trees and Power Lines

Do not ever under estimate the danger of overgrown trees and their proximity to powerlines.  These lines are carrying high voltage electricity into your home or business and, when an overgrown tree is to close to the line, the risk of fire is a very real one.  Electricity can arc and make contact with limbs that may not be directly touching the lines.  Therefore, 3 metres distance should be observed to minimize risk.

While Property Owners are responsible to monitor the trees on their property and identify potential hazards, they should NOT attempt to trim any tree that is in close proximity to a powerline.  This should only be attempted by a qualified arborist.
A temporary outage will most likely need to be scheduled for the safety of yourself and the arborist.  Contact the utility company as soon as you identify concerns.  Power will be reinstated once the tree trimming has been completed and any area cleanup done.

Also, always plan for the growth of trees when you are planting them.  Think ahead and don’t plant any tree underneath or close to powerlines if possible.  Consider the area that you want to landscape and choose the trees you want to put there wisely. 
You must also keep in mind that your local utility company will need to be able to access transformers with ease on your property.  This also will mean that you should consider future growth when planting around these, ensuring that they remain clear from obstruction by plants, shrubs, and trees.  We recommend at a minimum, keeping 3 metres clear on all sides of the transformer for ease of access.
