My Trees Look Sick - What's Wrong?
There are many things that can cause a tree to look poorly. When we start looking more closely at the symptoms and the surroundings, we can often figure out what the likely culprits are. If you are willing to invest some time googling, you can often figure out the easy ones yourself.
Over-watering is the single factor we see hurting trees the most throughout the Los Angeles area. Our arborists can help get to the bottom of exactly what is going on and get your trees the care they need ASAP.
We want to build a pool / playground / basketball or tennis courts / picnic area in our HOA. How can I do that and keep our trees too?
We’ll help you determine what limbs can be cut. There’s a chance that so much is being cut that it will be better to cut the tree out entirely. We won’t take that step unless it’s the only option.
Don’t let the gardener or regular contractors make the decision. They’ll usually cut whatever is in their way without regard to what you’re going to have to do in the future to maintain the tree and may not be aware of the health or safety impact they are making on the tree and everything around it. Our certified arborists and land clearing specialists can help prepare any site for your needs.
We have a variety of trees on our property. Can you help us identify them?
Our certified arborists are specially trained and have years of extensive knowledge to help identify and care for all the trees on your property. Our team would also create a detailed inventory report for your records. Please call us for more details.
I hired a different company to cut my trees, and they did a terrible job. Can you help?
We’ll help you figure out if the tree can be saved. We will likely start by NOT cutting anything else for a while. In a year or two we’ll start selectively thinning limbs in an effort to rebuild and restore the new canopy. We call it a crown restoration and that’s what happens after bad tree trimmers “top” trees. DON’T ever top your trees. Contact us more to learn why
