Why You Would Want a Professional for the Job

Because trimming and pruning is a skill that takes time and effort to master. Christianson Tree Services has been in the field for more than 40 years. Few homeowners have the expertise and the license. Instead of pruning, they can top a tree; leading to a rot in the trunk, weakening the entire structure, and increasing the hazard.

Benefits of Trimming and Pruning in Santa Cruz County

Homeowners and businesses hire professional ornamental trimming and pruning services for three main reasons: aesthetics, safety, and tree health.

  • Enhanced Aesthetics

    Professional arborists can enhance the appearance of your trees, giving your property greater curb appeal and striking a more pleasing balance between the trees and house.

  • Increased Safety

    Parts of your tree can jeopardize your and your loved ones’ safety, especially after a storm or strong wind. Proper pruning can ensure trees are not a threat to your house, electric supply lines, or family members.

  • Improved Tree Health

    Diseases and insects are trees’ mortal enemies. Professional trimming and pruning can prevent an infection from spreading, treat wounds, and shape trees to develop a strong structure that can withstand severe weather.

Frequently Asked Questions

Tree removal services could save your property from serious harm in many ways. Make sure you get in touch with a local tree expert if your tree has become a risk, a hazard, or a severe inconvenience. Here are some ways in which removing a tree can save your property.

At Christianson Tree Experts, we still recommend that you work with a professional to ensure everything is done properly. You’ll need the right power drill, as well as potassium nitrate. Going to try to burn the stump on your own? At a minimum, talk to the local fire department. The last thing you want to do is miss safety precautions that lead to an out-of-control blaze.

There are various factors that affect the total price of professional removal. When professionals come in with a commercial grinder, it usually costs about $3 per diameter inch of the stump. If you’re clearing large areas (multiple stumps), you could face an hourly rate of $150.

Let’s be frank: some trees are purely irritating. They may be healthy, but they could merely be a nuisance. This could be because they shed fruit or seeds. It could also be because the wood is weak and, therefore, there is a high chance that it is going to break. Of course, you may need the trees to be removed from your land because you require the area for other purposes.

Sadly, there are sometimes healthy trees that experience simply unavoidable damage. This could be severe weather as well as accidental contact with a vehicle or animal damage. In such a case, you should not only remove the tree. You need to consult experts so that they can assess the situation and help you to make an informed decision. After all, there could be the possibility that the tree may recover.
