Stormy, Stormy, Night.

With apologies to Vincent Van Gogh (Starry, Starry, Night) we just wanted to remind you that winter storms are just around the corner in Northern Nevada.  Lest you forget, when snow storms hit our area they usually come with full force including hail on many occasions.  No yard is spared from their wrath!

Winter storms can down trees that previously seemed invulnerable to nature’s blast.  Steady, strong trees that have deep roots and have survived the previous winter furies in Northern Nevada become damaged or even fall.  That means not only can they become hazardous to your family, but even to neighbors and pedestrians.

When and if winter storms hit Reno and the surrounding area have this phone number at the ready…(775) 420-8694.  It is the number of The Tree Professional.  Greg and his staff have just about seen it all over the many winters they have experienced here in Northern Nevada.  Just be cautious and ready to call The Tree Professional at (775) 420-8694.

Seven Fall Favorites in Reno Tahoe

(Click the link above for more information)

"Seven solid reasons to make Reno Tahoe your fall-cation destination."


Is Fall a Good Time to Plant a Tree in Northern Nevada?

Many experts (ya gotta love those experts!) claim that planting trees in fall is better. In the fall, the tree can make new roots without having to feed the leaves.  Water needs are suddenly much lower without the leaves on the tree.  It may feel cool in fall, but that is actually the best temperature for root growth!  Quite simply roots grow best in cool soil.

Here is an inescapable fact…A fall planting allows the tree to grow roots in fall and again early spring BEFORE leaves even develop.  This gives the tree a good chance to lay down a good set of roots before they need to collect water and nutrients for the leaves.  Good nurseries should have many plants available because fall planting is becoming more popular.

We here at The Tree Professional endorse the planting of trees in the Autumn of the year here in the Reno area and around Northern Nevada.  When and if, those trees need to be managed or even removed someday, we will be here for you.  For all or your arboreal needs we are The Tree Professional.  Just give us a call at (775) 420-7694.
