Tree Huggers Stay Away!

This a tree you DO NOT want to hug.  It’s a tree that has fallen on or next to a power line.  About one out of five unplanned power outages in America are caused by trees and other vegetation growing too close to power lines.  High winds in Northern Nevada can (and often do) cause trees to fall on lines of communication.

Trees and electricity don’t mix!  Just having a tree growing too close to a power line is a source of great potential danger.  There is the risk of fire in dry conditions.  Electricity can travel from the top of the tree directly to the ground.  Obviously, those that touch such foliage are subject to shock and even electrocution.

So, what’s next?  The answer is obvious.  In the Reno area you call the Tree Professional.  He is Greg Chavez…Northern Nevada’s safe tree remover.  Let his years of expertise come into play as he removes those potential hazards from your property.  Don’t even THINK about doing it yourself!  Call Greg Chavez of The Tree Professional at (775) 420-8694.

Trees…and the Upcoming Winter.

It won’t be long now.  Your trees have a way of communicating that the season is changing.  They are sitting on your property asking to be “groomed”.  As the leaves begin to change color and eventually shed it’s important as property owners to give your trees a helping hand as they prepare for our often harsh and cold Northern Nevada winter.

Here are some tips to prepare for the next season –

1.  Before you start…clean up the dead trees and limbs.
2.  A very important step in the process is pruning.
3.  Give your trees a little extra water…they are thirsty in the fall too.
4.  Fertilize around the base of your trees.  They need the nutrition.

Caring for your trees is as important as caring for the inside of your home.  In Northern Nevada home owners know the area’s best tree professional.  He is Greg Chavez.  Greg is the owner of The Tree Professional…duh!  Before the snow flies call Greg for a visit to your property at let him assess what is needed.  That number is (775) 420-8694.

A Not So Merry Christmas.

That is odd…Christmas in September?  What is that all about?  It concerns the blight of the Northern Nevada pine tree.  It is known as “needle blight and it generally describes the sudden demise of pine needles (tomorrow’s Christmas trees).  It usually is spotted at the tip of the needle with a gray discoloration.

A comprehensive study of pine needle blight syndrome was conducted several years ago.  There were a variety of factors cited as the cause of pine needle blight on the Northern Nevada landscape.  There may be fungal pathogens or environmental stress, for example.

Be that as it may, we live in harmony with our trees.  Their health is vital to your property and the planet in general.  In the Reno area, you can always trust Greg Chavez, The Tree Professional to identify and treat the symptoms of arboreal disease.  Invite him out to your property by calling (775) 420-8694.
