YEARS OF SERVICE
Tree Removal & Maintenance
All trees removed by certified professionals according to ANSI safety standards.
As a full-service tree removal company, we can remove trees of all sizes and in every situation. We have completed jobs from removing the smallest residential trees to removing the very largest of hazardous trees. Trees can be removed for several reasons including (but not limited to) disease, storm damage, threatening structures, growing too large for the space, improper pruning in the past, poor health or structure, or because they are a nuisance variety. Most trees can be removed in just one day. Tight quarter tree removals require special care. If you have a tree that needs to be removed but it is located near power lines, buildings or other trees, that’s a situation that requires special care and planning. The professionals at DZ DUZ IT Tree Service’s have the experience and equipment to deal with complex tree removals so that other property(s) in the area doesn’t get damaged during the process. As with all our services, our crew will explain the removal process before we start any work so you’ll understand what is being done and approximately how long the process will take. If you have any questions or concerns, we encourage you to share them with our crew right away so they can be addressed.
Stump grinding is the best method for stump removal.
Once a tree has been removed, you still have to deal with the stump. While you could leave the stump in place, most homeowners like to remove it as it gives them more options, such as landscaping the area, planting a replacement tree, fencing, or planting grass so it blends into their yard.
No matter the size, stump grinding is the fastest, most efficient way to remove any stump from your yard.
Pruning & Care
Trimming, pest and disease evaluation, preservation, cabling and bracing, hazardous tree assessment and removal including stump removal, pre-construction consulting, tree-scape planning, and of course…24 hour emergency service.
Pruning is a process that takes time to master. Masterful pruning techniques ensure every cut made directs growth. For an arborist to truly understand the impact of his work, years of experience allows him to see how the tree reacts to his work. Our arborists are also trained in the latest high-climbing techniques for safe and damage-free tree removals no matter the size or predicament of the tree.
From specialty pruning of fruit trees to hazard reduction for removing dead limbs to maintenance pruning for improving a tree’s health. Seasonal programs are available for tree and shrub care including ornamentals.
The different pruning types, timing of pruning, and frequency depend on the special circumstances of the tree. For your information, we have provided a description of the most common frequencies, timing & types of pruning:
Deciduous trees: Most deciduous trees in an urban environment will benefit from pruning every 3-5 years. This frequency may need to be increased if the trees are close to or over structures. Pruning a tree more heavily to avoid regular pruning often creates an opposite effect when the tree sends out significant new growth in response to the heavy pruning. There is a delicate balance of taking just the right amount that must be maintained.
Evergreen trees: Most of our large fir and pine trees need to be pruned ever 5-7 years. It is important, however, to inspect trees for changes that may affect their health and therefore their pruning schedule during this time. When in doubt, ask an arborist. Cedars and other evergreens in most cases should be pruned every 3-5 years. This frequency may need to be increased if the trees are close to or over structures.
Ornamental trees: Most ornamental trees can be pruned at the specific tastes of the owner. Most commonly, these types of trees are pruned yearly or every other year, but some are pruned as much as twice a year to achieve the desired look.
Timing of pruning is very dependent of the type and condition of the tree. If your tree has not been regularly pruned, the best time to prune is now. If you have regularly maintained your tree through pruning, the best timing depends on the type of tree:
Full Pruning: Bring out the best in your trees and shrubs by showcasing what nature already did. The form is strengthened, accented, and cleared by removing what does not fit. Dead, diseased, rubbing, and duplicated limbs are eliminated, and 10% to 20% of the live crown is all we remove. The greatest compliment we receive is when the owner says, “It doesn’t look pruned, it just looks better!” Better aesthetics mean better health. Air circulation can improve problems ranging from insect colonies to fungal growth – without chemical intervention.
Heavy Thinning: Sometimes, a tree has grown too large for its setting or too old to support some of the furthest growth from the root system. In these cases, we sometimes suggest removal and replanting, but there is a pruning remedy. Crown reduction pruning is a way of cutting back tips and leaving certain leaders to create a new, lower crown. This time-honored professional practice should not be confused with topping, which we do not perform. Topping is the indiscriminate lowering or shaping of a tree to arbitrary points between nodes or branches. Because topping makes a tree more susceptible to disease and other problems, it is never recommended by Urban Forest, unless there is a specific need.
Crown Restoration: If a tree has been topped, we can begin the process of restoration with the first pruning. We reduce the amount of leaders struggling for light, and separate these evenly as possible. If done properly in a cycle of years, a tree that has been “ruined” can often be reclaimed, and go on for years and years after the event.
Crown Lifting: Ever notice how deadwood seems to gather at the bottom of pine and fir trees? Growth is mainly a function of available light. Light, for a tree, is food, and leaves are the tree’s stomach. When a tall, straight tree gains more growth on top, it is natural that it will lose limbs on the bottom. We anticipate this action by pruning the lowest limbs on many of our native conifers and some of large native trees, like big leaf maple. It keeps them healthy and encourages upward growth.
Formal Pruning: When a tree is planted for fruit, flowers, or to conform to a space that is too small for the norm in nature, it can be pruned formally to keep a desired shape. If the pruning is done regularly and properly, it can be a thing of beauty and usefulness. Unfortunately, we find many trees that have started out formally, but been let go. If it’s feasible, we save the tree, and if not, we recommend removal and replanting.
