Trees…Glorious Trees.

What about those trees on your Northern Nevada property?  Trees affect our climate, and therefore our weather, in three very specific ways - they lower temperatures, reduce energy usage and reduce or remove air pollutants.  Those leaves turn down the thermostat.  They actually cool the air through a process called evapotranspiration.

It’s a combination of two simultaneous processes…evaporation and transpiration.  Water is converted from liquid to vapor and evaporates from soil, lakes, rivers and even pavement.  Through transpiration water is drawn up through the soil by the roots and evaporates from the leaves.  TMI perhaps, but we just wanted you to know how important trees can be!

The care and health of those trees should be left to us…The Tree Professionals of Northern Nevada.  Working out of Reno we do the things that are simply too dangerous to do on your property to protect those precious trees this summer and through every season to follow.  Call the Tree Professionals at (775) 420-8694.

Trimming Hedges.

Start with this premise…new hedges should be pruned from an early stage to establish a shape and prevent unhealthy growth.  The amount you prune back will depend on the type of hedge.  We recommend that you start shaping the hedge as soon as practical.  A formal hedge whether new or established, should be tapered so that it is wider at the bottom than the top.

Once the hedge is established, regular maintenance will ensure it keeps healthy as well as neat.  Some can even cut the hedge by just judging with their eyes.  Again, we recommend that it’s a good idea to set your lines with lengths of string taut between canes.  Yes, it is probably more of an exact science than you think.

That is why we are The Tree Professionals…professional arborists who help keep Northern Nevada beautiful…one property at a time!  Let The Tree Professionals trim your hedges and other green and growing things on your Reno area property.  Just give us a call from the very beginning at (775) 420-8694.

Hug a Tree.

It may sound a bit “hippyish” on the surface, but it is a metaphor to remember when protecting the health of the trees on your Northern Nevada land.  Trees can enhance any property with beauty, shade, tranquility, and home value.  Because they’re so advantageous to keep healthy, it’s crucial to learn as much as you can about tree care tips for your property.

Here are some –

1.  Prune those unruly branches.
2.  Inspect them periodically for damage from insects, disease, etc.
3.  Nourish them with organic mulch.
4.  Try to plant new trees in the fall.
5.  Sometimes just leave them alone to grow at their own pace.

No matter how much TLC you give to the trees on your Reno area property you still may need a tree professional now and then.  That’s where we come in.  We are aptly named The Tree Professional servicing all that matters where green and growing things are concerned in and around Reno.  We will be here when you need us.  Just call (775) 420-8694.

Please Get it Off my Property…Safely!

Let’s get one thing straight from the get-go…safe removal of a dead or dying tree is best left to a professional tree removal service, especially if the tree is large and close to your home.  The tree removal process may seem easy enough, but without the right equipment and knowledge, it could pose great risk to those involved!

Here are some steps that The Tree Professional will use –

1.  Thoroughly clear the area
2.  Carefully examine the tree
3.  Make sure that there is a clear and safe escape route in case the tree falls awkwardly
4.  Have ALL the right equipment at the ready

See what we mean?  That last point is not something that any average Northern Nevada homeowner keeps in their garage.  The Tree Professional of Reno has all the equipment, knowledge, and bonding to safely pull off the job.  For tree removal in Northern Nevada always call The Tree Professional at (775) 420-8694.
