Structural Pruning For Trees To Ensure Health And Safety

»Posted in blog

When you consider trees in nature, you know that, most often, they will grow up in a stand of other similar trees, stretching up toward the sunlight. The natural forest encourages a strong central trunk and reasonable branch size. Now, consider your landscape trees. Most often, they are solitary trees, not having to compete for sunlight. According to Dublin tree trimming and pruning experts, a tree outside its normal habitat will often grow a wide crown, large lower branches, and multiple limbs. Although these can be beautiful to us, they can also mean a tree that is structurally weak. Poor tree structure can result in limb breakage and tree failure. These trees will often be the first ones to fall during a storm but can also be weak in normal...

Is Bracing Or Cabling A Good Solution For A Structurally Insecure Tree?

»Posted in blog

Brace rods and cables are supports used for trees that have weak branches, compromised structure, or multiple trunks in order to reduce the risk of failure. When a tree is leaning, it can pose potential risk, especially in stormy weather. In other cases, a tree can grow in a way that its structure can no longer support its own weight. This is the case, many times, when tree have multiple trunks and large canopies. Risk can mean several things. Are structures, utility lines, or people in danger if the tree falls?

Healthy Soil Means Happy Trees

»Posted in blog

In suburban Dublin, your trees are faced with a lot of competition. Grass, landscaping, a finite amount of sun and water, limited room for growth, soil nutrients — all of this presents a challenge to the plants that are vying for these limited resources. Back before Jose Amador was granted 16,500 acres of what is now Amador Valley, this area was a natural area with a thriving food web. The soil web of life was fed by decaying leaves, fungi, and microbes. This fed insects and birds. The cycle of organic habitat was reclaimed, over and over. This created soil rich in nutrients. But when housing moved in in the 1960s and transformed Dublin into a suburb, heavy machinery and construction practices began to dig away at the healthy layers of soil, compacting what...

Be On The Lookout For The Bronze Birch Borer Beetle

»Posted in blog

In drought ridden California, Dublin tree cutting experts have noticed that we have been dealing with the Bronze Birch Borer Beetle as a result of the hot, arid climate. It has been surmised that this pest has killed several thousand mature birch trees between California and Nevada. Because a tree may be infested for years without many visible symptoms, an infestation can go undetected until it is too late. The bronze birch borer is a bronze colored beetle up to 2 inches long. To susceptible birches, it is both deadly and difficult to control. The damage is due to the larvae which interrupt the flow of sap and eventually weaken and kill the tree. Tree cutting professionals in Dublin warn to keep watch of the general health of your trees. Borer beetles prefer to...
