Going Out on a Limb.

Did you ever wonder where that expression comes from?  It was used in politics back in the late 1880’s as it was obvious what it meant.  When a politician left the “safety” of the center of the “tree” he was going “out on a limb”.  Everyone knows not to try to climb out on unsafe limbs and try to trim them.

However, what many try to do is a certain amount of tree-trimming that they THINK is safe.  That decision is not only dangerous, but could be downright serious.  Are you really willing to risk your future and your family’s by being some ersatz Paul Bunyan just to save a few dollars and have it done right?

It is not just about the money, but how is the job going to look when you are done.  One of Northern Nevada’s best tree-trimming professionals is Greg Chavez.  If are not convinced then visit  See the gallery of his work.  Then call for an appointment at (775) 420-8694.

What is an Arborist?

No, it is not someone who works in a ship yard.  Let’s give you a dictionary definition.  An arborist is a professional involved in the cultivation, management, and study of trees, shrubs, and other perennial woody plants.  Generally, an arborist concentrates on the individual health and maintenance of such living organisms.

If an arborist is required to work near power lines additional training is required.  Those that climb use a number of techniques such as “single rope” or “double rope”.  They may also use spikes attached to their chainsaw boots with straps that ascend to do their work.  It sounds somewhat romantic and dangerous!

Greg Chavez is proud to be a Northern Nevada arborist.  You would have to ask him where he developed his love for trees, but count on this…if you have a tree or shrub that needs to be removed or trimmed you won’t do better than inviting Greg onto your property to estimate the job.  Call The Tree Professional today at (775) 420-8694.
