Have You been Pruning?

No, not from the sun…although it is good to keep an eye on that as well.  What have you done about your spring-flowering trees and shrubs?  Trees and shrubs that bloom in the spring season such as lilac, rhododendron, magnolia, mock orange and forsythia, all bear flowers on wood formed the previous year.

Arborists have determined that the best time to prune these plants is immediately after they finish flowering in late spring.  Since summer is underway, it is really important to keep your spring bloomers be as healthy as possible by removing 1/4 to 1/2 of the oldest shoots all the way to the ground - this will allow younger stems to thrive.

Your local arborists are The Tree Professionals serving all of the Reno area.  They have been pruning all types of trees in Northern Nevada for many years.  Whatever is needed on your property, trimming, pruning, removal, or hauling please give Greg and his team a call for your next important tree-care project at (775) 420-8694.

Whose Tree is that Anyway?

Hey, I get no respect, no respect at all.  With apologies to the late Rodney Dangerfield trees don’t respect property lines.  That can be very problematic for maintaining good neighbor relations.  Overhanging branches can cause more problems.  Branches can break, wildlife can come over to the next property for a bite to eat, etc.

Large branches, of course, take considerably more care in removing than smaller, thinner branches, especially from the standpoint of safety. Cutting the branch in manageable sections allows for a simpler, safer procedure. If the branch is large and thick, please hire a tree service for the job to protect yourself and your investment.

There is a lot at stake here.  If you love to climb go to one of those indoor rock climbing parks!  When large branches need to be moved call a tree professional.  In Northern Nevada that is The Tree Professional.  We are the Reno area’s top tree trimming and removal service.  Call us today and we’ll come out.  That phone number is (775) 420-8694.

What is the Right Time to Prune a Fruit Tree?

Well now, that is up for interpretation. The answer depends on your specific goals. For example, let’s say that you have a small, burgeoning apple tree and you want it to grow quickly and produce a better quality harvest. In that particular case, late winter pruning is a great idea because winter pruning spurs vigorous growth.

However, what if you have a cherry tree that is already too large to harvest? In that case, you might opt for summer pruning. When you prune your fruit tree during the summer you can reduce its size by cutting off some of its branches without encouraging vigorous growth.  Stick to a restricted percentage of pruning each year!

All of this requires expertise.  If you have fruit trees on your property, please consider contacting us.  We are aptly named The Tree Professionals…Northern Nevada’s tree pruning professionals.  We know the right time to prune your trees.  If you live in the Reno area contact us for removal, pruning, and trimming of trees, shrubs, and hedges at (775) 420-8694.

Who Planted that Tree…George Washington?

Trees are not like any other living organism.  They are monuments.  They may have been growing on what is now your property for centuries.  Determining when it is time to remove one should come with careful consideration.  One thing you DON’T want to do is just hang on to a dead or dying tree because of its history!

When you hear about a legendary tree reaching the end of its life it conjures up a question that people have asked for time immemorial.  Should I cut down a large, healthy, mature tree on my property?  Is it now, or is it about to cause structural damage?  That applies not only to the part that you can see, but what is happening underground as well.

To properly assess this question, you turn to a tree professional.  Voila, you have a tree professional right here in the Reno area!  He is Greg Chavez and his team at  Leave this important decision to the arborists.  Call Greg today to come out to your property at (775) 420-8694.

Do I Need Braces?

We can’t speak to your dental needs, but as far as your trees go, the answer may be a resounding yes!  A brace or cable may be used on your trees for one of three main reasons…mitigation, restoration, or prevention.  You may help a young, struggling tree through its weakest stage.  You could prolong the life of a damaged tree or to keep a tree from falling.

How is bracing done?

1.  The strength of the hardware is essential.
2.  How they are arranged makes all the difference.
3.  The proper placement and entry points of all of the cables or braces.

One thing is certain, you need to contact a certified arborist who is experienced in this area.  When you need a tree braced in the Reno area your first choice is The Tree Professionals.  Who else?  Greg and his team will come out and assess your situation and take action if you wish.  Call The Tree Professionals today at (775) 420-8694.
