Exceeding Expectations in the Arbor Care Industry
Older trees have a certain vibe and aesthetic quality that cannot be captured in younger, freshly planted trees. Preserving the beauty of an older tree requires expert care and knowledge. Our team at Metro Tree can help homeowners and commercial property managers save historically significant or older mature trees with our tree preservation services.
EACH TREE IS UNIQUE AND NEEDS A CUSTOMIZED MAINTENANCE/PRESERVATION PLAN
Trees may look alike on the outside, but they are vastly different from one another. Every tree has a unique set of needs based off of its current location, soil it is planted in, climate, age, and previous maintenance schedule. Our arborists are prepared to create a detailed and customized maintenance and preservation plan for each tree.
Maintenance and preservation plans are created by our arborists after a detailed assessment of the tree. When performing their assessment, our arborists are looking at the current health of the tree, where it is planted, the root system, and the climate/atmosphere of the area in which the tree is placed. This information allows our arborists to create a customized preservation and maintenance plan for the tree.
Some of the recommended services that may be incorporated into a tree preservation and maintenance plan include:
- Deep root fertilization
- Pest control
- Disease control
- Regular pruning and/or trimming
- Maintenance – soil placement, watering schedule
Metro Tree offers homeowners and commercial property managers access to a team of skilled arborists and staff members that can provide these services. Our team is committed to helping our customers preserve any historically significant or mature tree by following through with the services recommended for a maintenance or tree preservation plan.
WHAT MAY BE INCLUDED IN A TREE PRESERVATION AND MAINTENANCE PLAN
Our arborists set out to assess a historically significant or mature tree with two goals in mind: a need to determine the current health of the tree and a desire to create a long term maintenance plan.
Assessing the current health of the tree requires our arborists to look at what nutrients the tree is receiving, if it has been exposed to any diseases, or has been plagued by pests/insects. In addition to looking at these specific items, our arborists will look at the growth of the current root system, tree branches, and leaves.
After assessing these factors, our arborists will make recommendations on how to improve the health of the tree. Recommendations can range from pruning and trimming branches to deep root fertilization or pest and disease control services. These services are recommended in an effort to improve the current health of the tree.
Once the tree’s health has been revitalized and improved, our arborists will work to create a long term maintenance plan. This long term plan will help keep the tree healthy and vibrant while preserving it in its original state.
Long term maintenance plans can include the need for a variety of services that are similar to those used to improve the health of the tree. These services include trimming and pruning branches/roots, regular pest/disease control services, and occasional deep root fertilization.
Be able to enjoy the beauty that only a historic or mature tree can provide by preserving it. Schedule a consultation with one of our arborists at Metro Tree to start the tree preservation process.
