Out Darn Stump.

With apologies to Shakespeare, an unsightly tree stump is like an annoying looking spot on an otherwise pristine article of clothing.  Do you like looking at old tree stumps when you peer outside of your window?  What do you think that neighbors and people driving by your property think of them?

Here are some other reasons why stump removal should be a high priority –

1. They are downright dangerous!  Anyone can trip over them.
2.  When they decay they attract insects.
3.  Something called “sucker growth” continues from the stump itself.
4.  Stumps harbor disease that can spread to healthy plants on your property.

Stumps or no stumps that is the question (again, apologies to the Bard).  Unsightly, decaying tree stumps on your property is NOT the business.  Removing them IS the business of The Tree Professional.  Greg and his team will remove tree stumps quickly, efficiently, economically, and completely.  If you live in the Reno area call him today at (775) 420-8694.

What Constitutes a Tree Emergency?

Snow storms, rain storms, wind storms – they are all a part of Northern Nevada.  Occasionally, they knock down trees. And when they do, the safest thing to do is call a tree service company experienced in emergency tree removal. If you haven’t dealt with a fallen tree before, or even if you have, here are the steps you should take if a tree has fallen on your property.

1.  Think safety first.  Block off the area.
2.  Check the power lines.  You may have to turn off the juice.
3.  Did the tree fall onto a neighbor’s property?  Make sure that matter is considered.
4.  Now, call a pro.

Exactly, call a professional tree removal company.  Did you know that there is a company that has been serving Reno and surrounding Northern Nevada for years that just happens to be called The Tree Professional?  Perfect!  Greg and his crew have been dealing with tree removal emergencies for decades.  Call him right away at (775) 420-8694.

Non-Political Stumping.

During this time of year as the mid-term elections approach stumping takes on a specific meaning.  If that stump is from an old tree in your yard it has a whole different meaning.  Many homeowners around Reno will choose to ignore a simple tree stump.  This may be a really bad idea for your family.

There are several good reasons for removing a tree stump –

1.  Curb appeal.  No one wants to look at that nasty thing.
2.  Property value.  Yours is worth more when not dotted with stumps.
3.  Safety.  Nothing good comes from tripping over one.
4.  Freeing up space.  Plant some flowers in that spot already!

Now to the point.  Who should you trust to remove that (or those) tree stump(s) from your property.  The logical choice is Northern Nevada’s Tree Professional.  Greg and his team will get rid of that unsightly growth and help beautify your Reno area home.  Don’t hesitate another day.  Call the Tree Professional at (775) 420-8694.

There is a sound we never want to hear if you or a loved one are climbing one of your trees to do your own trimming.  It’s “shocking” how many homeowners are injured trying to trim trees near overhead electrical wires.  Tackling a project on your own that may otherwise cost some money certainly can be gratifying, but come on!  Where do you draw the line?

Terrible accidents can happen when a homeowner uses pole-mounted cutting tools and/or metal ladders to trim backyard trees and shrubs. Too often, an energized overhead wire is not noticed and is touched by pruning tools, causing injury or death…ZAAAP!  You know better, right?  Don’t try to be the Paul Bunyan of Northern Nevada.

So, there it is.  You can try to be a hero and save a few bucks, or you can call The Tree Professional.  That’s right Reno’s premier tree removal, trimming, and pruning service.  Greg and his crew are used to dancing with electrical wires.  Let them do the dirty work!  Call (775) 420-8694 today.

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 to Plant and When.

The colors, the shapes, the textures, oh my!  The choices are many and varied as to what to plant as summer comes to the Reno area.  One of the keys is NOT to buy things that you don’t really need or want.  Think carefully…what are you trying to accomplish on your property?  Let’s achieve our goals.

If you want to attract wildlife it is essential to the fundamental concepts of wildlife management.  You should know the basic habitat of our area in the ever-changing seasons of Northern Nevada.  Look around your neighborhood and discover what naturally grows in our area, then decide how to enhance the native habitat.

Plant right and plant for decades to come.  We at The Tree Professional are here to advise you and keep those new trees trimmed to perfection.  You really CAN be the envy of your neighborhood!  Just give us a call at The Tree Professional of Northern Nevada at (775) 420-8694.
