Your Tree Needs a Haircut.

Just like human hair, a tree needs to be trimmed every once in a while.  So, if you’re having a professional tree service trim heavy branches, they have to be extra careful not to damage the bark or interfere with the tree’s natural healing response.  Tree trimming is an art and a vocation, not a weekend DIY project!

Here are a few steps in the process –

1.  A small notch will be cut at a precise point near the bottom of the limb
2.  Just outside of that notch a relief cut will be made through the branch
3.  The final cut should be made where the branch collar becomes the smooth branch bark

If not done properly the branch could be cut too short or left too long.  The relief cuts must be precise, or the branch could easily break off from the weight.  That’s why you rely on the professionals - The Tree Professional located in Reno and serving Northern Nevada.  Call the tree trimming experts The Tree Professional at (775) 420-7694.

Timberrrrr.

It could happen any day.  If you have a hazardous tree in your yard, strong winds from a major storm could break a branch or even cause the tree to topple onto your roof.  Fallen trees can cause thousands of dollars in damage and pose a big risk to you and your family.  You may have insurance, but that does not protect you from the potential danger.


Here are some signs that a tree is in danger of falling –

1.  There is a hole in the trunk.
2.  Deep cracks are visible and even missing bark.
3.  There are dead branches.
4.  The trunk is leaning.
5.  Branches are growing close together in a V-shape.

Besides the above, roots could be rotting which may be hard for someone to spot…unless you are a tree professional.  That’s right, in the Reno area there is one business that has earned the right to be called The Tree Professional.  If a tree falls on your Northern Nevada property EVERYBODY knows.  Call The Tree Professional first at (775) 420-7694.

Caring for New Hedges on your Property.

Newly planted hedges typically require some pruning right after planting. Did you know that? Hedges are often planted in late winter or spring before the plants fully awake from dormancy.  You should cut back spring-planted hedges immediately after planting before the buds begin to break.  The extra branching results in a fuller, more compact hedge.

Now, what about flowering hedges?  Pruning flowering hedges at the wrong time prevents the hedge from producing flowers the following season.  If a plant produces flower buds on old wood soon after it finishes the current season's bloom, always prune it after flowering.  Hedges grown only for their foliage aren't usually as picky about pruning time. 

The point of this is that hedges each have their own “personality”.  When to prune is as important as when to plant.  Please call the hedge trimming experts at The Tree Professional to get on the right track this summer and for all of the years to come.  The Tree Professional serves the Reno area and Northern Nevada.  Give them a call today at (775) 420-7694.

Things are Heating up in Northern Nevada.

Every year, we are impressed by how trees handle standing outside in 90 degree heat without being able to move and while they provide us with shade, they are not getting much shade themselves.  Of course, trees have evolved in very different ways from humans, buy just like us they “sweat out” water in order to hydrate.

This process is known as evapotranspiration.  It is how trees transport water through their roots, trunks, branches and eventually out of their leaves.  This particular process brings nutrients and water to all parts of the tree, and essentially allows the tree to breathe.  That old mantra climate change (whether you are a proponent or not) puts added stress on trees.

The trees of the Reno area and all of Northern Nevada are precious to The Tree Professionals.  They are this area’s true arborists and the people you call for care, proper growth, trimming, and cutting of all varieties of trees in our area.  Please call The Tree Professionals and keep your trees in tip top condition this summer.  That phone number is (775) 420-7694.
