What Responds Best to Being Pruned.

It is getting to be that time of year again (late winter/early spring) when pruning bushes and trees is highly advisable. At this point, it may seem like winter will never end in Northern Nevada, but it will…and soon! So now that the time is soon arriving, we thought it would be a good idea as to which plants on your property respond best to pruning.

Here are some of them –


1.  Forsythia

2.  Lilac

3.  Honeysuckle

4.  Red and yellow twig dogwood

5.  Azaleas

There are many, many more, of course. Suffice to say, as spring is just around the corner you should be calling a professional pruner in the Reno area to come to your Northern Nevada property. The answer, as always, is The Tree Professional of Reno, NV. Take a look at their gorgeous portfolio at thetreeprofessional.com. Call Greg at (775) 420-8694.

Trees and Power Lines…Bad Combo!

Did you know that nearly a quarter of the unplanned power outages you may have experienced in Northern Nevada are caused by trees and other vegetation growing too close to power lines? In high winds, trees can be blown onto power lines, causing the lines to short-circuit, and can also cause major damage to electrical equipment, resulting in power interruptions.

Here are some helpful tips -


1.  Trees should be a certain distance from electrical conductors.

2.  Subscribing liability to those who are guilty of that distancing.

3.  Find the right company to safely remove a tree.

That last part is easy in Northern Nevada. It is the aptly named Tree Professional of Reno. They have safely removed trees from properties throughout the area for many years. Greg and his team know that it is always safety first! See their amazing work by googling thetreeprofessional.com. Call day or night at (775) 420-8694.

Sadly, it is Time to Say Good-bye.

Sometimes, a tree on your property needs to be removed. Even after years of providing protection and shade to your Northern Nevada home or business it simply “gives up the ghost” and must be removed whether it is still standing or not. It does not necessarily require an arborist to see that a tree is dying.

Just think of the consequences of your continued procrastination-

1.  Branches may break off

2.  The next winter storm may be disastrous

3.  It could be leaning unsafely (like the Tower of Pisa!)

Regardless of which of the above refers to your tree play it safe. Call The Tree Professionals. They are a noted safe tree removal service who is licensed and bonded in the Reno area. Greg and his crew will give you peace of mind in no time. See the incomparable work of The Tree Professionals at thetreeprofessional.com and call anytime (775) 420-8694.

Heavy Snow = Heavy Trees.

One thing we can be certain of in Northern Nevada this time of year is snow…and plenty of it! It comes as no surprise that as the snow gets more intense, severe side effects start to appear. As you might have observed and heard, heavy snow often comes with the tell-tale cracking sound indicative of the damage it is inflicting on your plants.

These are some of the risks of heavy snow on trees –

1.  Bending…sometimes the entire tree.

2.  Splitting…a tree can literally go into shock and split from the weight.

3.  Breaking…branches just give out and break entirely.

4.  Falling…the ultimate disaster on your property!

Whatever may become of the winter of 2021, if it includes heavy snow around your Reno area property, you may need the help of The Tree Professionals. They are winter-care tree experts in Northern Nevada who help you with the ravages of heavy snow on your property. Just visit thetreeprofessional.com and call (775) 420-8694.

The First American Christmas Tree.

It dates back to the mid-19th century as the story goes, August Imgard originally from Germany, set up the first American Christmas tree in Wooster, Ohio, in 1847. The basic version of the tale was that Imgard, after arriving in America, was homesick at Christmas so he cut down the top of a spruce tree, brought it indoors, and decorated it.

Another version has it that a professor at Harvard, Charles Follen is known to have set up a Christmas tree in his home in the mid-1830s…well before Mr. Imgard. Further, The Christmas tree of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert became known in America in the late 1840s, and in the 1850s reports of Christmas trees began to appear in newspapers around the US.

However you celebrate the Holiday season we here at The Tree Professionals honor the Balsam Fir as the most popular variety of Christmas Tree. Whenever you need tree removal or trimming around your Northern Nevada property please think of The Tree Professionals of Reno in 2021. Happy Holidays from Greg and his staff at The Tree Professionals.

Plant a Tree…Breathe the Fresh Air.

We are sure that you know planting trees on your Northern Nevada property really is one of the best things you can do for the local environment as well as for the planet. It is no secret that trees help the environment, but you may be surprised by all the benefits that planting trees can provide. They produce oxygen while removing carbon dioxide and contaminants.

Here are some more benefits from tree planting –

1.  Trees reduce ozone levels in urban areas.

2.  They reduce erosion by storing water.

3.  Trees also absorb sound…we will bet you did not think of that!

4.  Obviously, they provide much needed shade at certain times of the year.

Now, the care and continued healthy growth of trees on your Reno area property is the job of The Tree Professionals of Northern Nevada. Greg and his crew will keep those majestic beauties fit and trim year ‘round. For a look at their amazing work see thetreeprofessional.com. Remember this phone number - (775) 420-8694.

We love trees as much as you do, so what do you do when you notice a tree on your Reno area property that has lived a long life, but now it’s time for removal?

It is a process, and one that we pride ourselves in being quite skilled at…tree removal in Northern Nevada. When that time comes do not hesitate!
