Dreaming (and Crossing your Fingers) of a White Christmas.

How common is a White Christmas in Reno Nevada?  When you think of Christmas you think of snow don’t you?  Perhaps you just dream of it.  Here in Nevada our chances for snow on Christmas day varies by elevation.  What constitutes a White Christmas?  You have to have at least an inch of snow on the ground.

So, what about Reno itself?  We have an 11% chance of having a white Christmas in Reno.  Were you a fan of 1971 (if you happened to have been around)?  On Christmas Day that year, the city officially measured 15 inches of snow!  You can always drive a short distance.  Virginia City has measurable snowfall about half of the time on December 25th.

Whatever Christmas 2018 may bring, we at The Tree Professionals pledge to continue helping you remove trees and trim bushes in the year to come.  It has been our honor to serve the needs of Northern Nevada and the Reno area for many years.  From our family at The Tree Professionals to yours Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year.

The Dangers of Tree Removal.

Make no mistake about it, cutting down a tree on your property can be one of the most dangerous DIY jobs you will ever undertake.  This is NOT like changing the oil in your car, unplugging your clogged toilet, or replacing furnace filters.  Just because you have done mundane chores around your household in the past DOES NOT mean that you should be tackling this one!

Here are some things that a tree professional will do before tackling the job –

1.  The tree must be inspected for cracks as well as decay.
2.  They don plenty of safety gear.
3.  They have spurs and a two-harness system to engage in the climb.
4.  He secures his chainsaw which is protected by a sturdy line.
5.  Certain branches need to be left below his feet…and they know which ones.

Are you prepared for all of that and more?  We didn’t think so!  The Tree Professionals of Northern Nevada certainly are.  They exercise every safety measure to ensure that the removal of your tree(s) is safe and visually pleasing.  Whenever a tree needs to be removed from your land in the Reno area call The Tree Professionals at (775) 420-8694.

When Trees Become Hedges.

It is an intriguing prospect.  Why not consider planting trees that function as hedges on your property?  Deciduous trees lined up in a hedge row generally provide screening only during the spring/summer growing season.  Evergreen trees however, both the broad and narrow-leaved types, are effective year-round as hedges.

Keep in mind that most trees can’t be rejuvenated by pruning them back to ground level.  Trees do not fill in as well when topped - and most should not be topped.  Since trees take longer to fill in space as they are planted farther apart, the initial planting may look sparse and take several years to achieve the exact appearance that you desire.

We would like to help.  We are The Tree Professionals.  That’s right, The Tree Professionals of Northern Nevada and the entire Reno area are here for you every day to assist you in the care and maintenance of trees, shrubs, hedges, etc.  Let us come out to your property by giving us a call.  That phone number is (775) 420-8694.

Tree Removal…Safety First!

Above all else, when you are removing a tree from your Reno area property it is always about safety.  If done improperly people and pets can be hurt.  Tree trimming operations require climbing and pruning, often with portable power tools like chainsaws, trimmers, and an aerial lift.  Unless you are Paul Bunyan, these may not be items that you keep around the house.

Here are some of the steps that a true tree professional will take –

1.  Protection of the hands with leather lineman’s gloves
2.  Make sure everyone at the site including passersby are safe
3.  Don’t use tools that conduct electricity
4.  Keep a minimum distance from power lines
5.  A thorough inspection of cracks and other weaknesses before the climb

Safety first when trimming or entirely removing a tree is absolutely essential!  That is why Greg and his team at The Tree Professionals take great pride in their safety record.  It will always be their top priority when they set foot on your property.  When it is time to remove or trim one or more trees on your Northern Nevada land call The Tree Professionals at (775) 420-8694.

Healthy as a Prune.

That is not an expression that is prominent in the American lexicon, but when a tree is properly pruned it promotes good health and longevity for that trusty monument in your yard.  Pruning will also keep your trees safe for humans and pets and allow them to grow at a pace they were intended to in the first place.

So, why should you have your trees pruned?

1.  Beauty…dead limbs and unsightly growth areas will be removed.
2.  The tree will be ready to face a harsh winter.
3.  In fruit trees, it will promote production.
4.  Prevent disease from spreading.

Pruning the trees on your property on a yearly basis just makes sense…doing it yourself does not!  That is why you always call The Tree Professionals.  They are Reno’s and Northern Nevada’s tree pruning professionals.  This job is best done by a pro.  Those pros are The Tree Professionals.  Give Greg and his team a call at (775) 420-8694.

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.

Come, Gaze upon the Beauty.

People find beauty in different ways.  Maybe it is a sunset, the look of a new car, the unique smile of a new-born baby, and many other things.  When you walk outside of your home are you taken by the beauty of your property?  If not, maybe you could be soon.  That would be spectacular, wouldn’t it?

The trees that grow on your property should not only provide shade, but an eye-appealing site as well.  We invite you to take a look at our portrait gallery.  Please go to the website www.thetreeprofessional.com to see the work that we have done to beautify homes and businesses in the Reno area.

Yes, we are rightfully named The Tree Professionals because for many years we have trimmed, cut, or even removed (if necessary) the trees that make Northern Nevada so breath-taking.  Does the word beauty come to mind when you walk outside of your door?  Make it so by calling us…The Tree Professionals at (775) 420-8694.
