Time for a Decent Burial.

How do you determine life or death?  Well, it may not be that be simple when the subject is trees on your property.  Here are a few ways to tell if a particular branch is alive or dead.  At first, you might find you need to go up for a closer examination, but over time you’ll start to get a sense from the ground.

Is a branch leafless while its counterparts are flourishing?  Have you noticed that seemingly dead leaves are clinging to a branch while others around it are bare?  Look carefully at the bark.  If it is bare, thereby exposing the smooth wood beneath it that is a sure sign.  The obvious one is noticing large clumps of fungus growing on the tree.

It all adds up to one thing.  Those limbs or that tree need to go.  Knowing when, where, and how are the reasons you contact a tree professional.  In Reno that choice is simple.  You call The Tree Professional…Northern Nevada’s tree health and maintenance experts.  Let them come out and give you an estimate before summer turns quickly to winter by calling (775) 420-8694.

Hot August Nights 2017

"Hot August Nights 2017 is the 31st anniversary of the Reno area's biggest event of the year, which will run from Tuesday, August 8 through Sunday, August 13."

To Prune or Not to Prune.

That is the question.  We are not talking about staying “regular”, although that is a good idea.  The reference here is when and how to have the trees pruned on your property in the Reno Nevada area.  First of all, we want to give you a head’s up now that the ideal time for pruning is in a couple of months when the weather turns.

How to prune is something probably best left to a tree professional.

1.  Dead or dying branches should be removed…a pro will know which ones.
2.  Prune well below any diseased limbs and NOT when they are wet!
3.  When two branches cross…cut off the smaller of the two.
4.  Leave room for plenty of sunlight to reach the middle of the tree.

When you love trees and recognize them as living monuments you take great pride in your work.  That is the case of Greg Chavez and his crew.  They are Northern Nevada’s tree professionals.  Please visit the beautiful gallery and satisfied reviews at  Then call for an appointment on your property at (775) 420-8694.
