Tree Services – Tree Trimming – Tree Pruning – Tree Removal

Trees have a life span and often we see them at the end of it or witness decline due to environmental factors. Arborist consultations cost money and the cost of removal is often enough expense for us to endure.

Trees are living organisms and like us the can have their life shortened due to environmental factors. Some of those factors may be be affecting your tree. Identifying them is helpful in determining whether or not your tree needs to be removed. See our other blogs on the micro organism battle that trees face to understand why it is most likely that a tree in decline may stay in decline and need removal and stump grinding or tree trunk removal.tree services - tree removal

The biggest reason that your tree may need to be removed is over pruning which can kill a tree. Often landscapers/gardeners try to make extra money by going into an area they know nothing about. The end result is over pruned trees that has stressed the tree into decline and made it susceptible to pests and other invaders. 

Licensing and Insurance Separate Tree Service from Landscaping For A Reason

They are 2 different lines of work. Insurance for landscapers often stays 12 foot and below and anything higher is not covered, this obviously effects the premiums and makes it more affordable for a landscaper to try to trim for a cheaper price. Do not be fooled and when that tree cracks your roof are surprised that insurance will not cover it.

Why is over pruning a problem?

A tree photosynthesis and draws up moisture in the roots through the process of evaporating moisture from the leaves. A large tree needs a lot of foliage to pull enough moisture to be able to store food and complete the process of nutrition. Simply over pruning a tree can kill it. I speak from experience have witnessed my brother (an arborist for 15+ yrs) kill a pine tree.

Tree Removal,/h3>

Tree removal was needed in that case and it was a sad sight to see. ISA reg’s state to not trim more than 30% of a tree’s foliage in any given 2 year period. This is based on a healthy tree and if you have a mature older tree it should be reduced to no more than 10% a year and 30% total over 5 years. Older trees have a harder time fighting micro organisms and over pruning may shorten their lives quickly.

What are some other factors that may be considered and if identified, help you in making the decision to remove your tree realizing that it is in serious decline?

Changes to soil.

Any construction work nearby, water runoff changes, salt or other substance added to soil, mulching near the trunk of a tree or planting nearby, use of herbicides nearby, soil deficiencies, and other factors such as air pollution etc.tree services

Damage to tree.

This may be obvious like a fractured branch, misc bad pruning techniques, storm damage. Or it could be as hidden as a neighbor cutting a root when putting down a sidewalk and not telling you, roots do not regrow and are vital to structure and food storage for a tree.

All of these factors weigh heavily on a tree, decline and the way a tree compartmentalizes (kills off) sections of itself to survive also effect the vital functions.

We recommend that if the tree is obviously struggling and replanting is an option to do so. Often in this economy we are looking for the most economic ways to care for our properties and removal is often cheaper than advanced treatments and maintenance yearly on a tree that will loose the micro organism battle and need removal in 5 years anyway.

I hope this has helped educate you and as always we are here to help. More information on this website

Orthodontic Treatment – Braces Care

Braces Care Oral Hygiene

Orthodontic bands and wires are food-catchers. It is therefore important that the teeth be carefully brushed after each meal and snack. After brushing, the appliances should be checked to see if they appear clean and shiny with no food particles or plaque. Failure to keep the mouth clean increases the likelihood of dental decay and etching of the enamel around the edges of the brackets and bands. Patients who keep their teeth clean and use fluoride gels usually have a minimum of decay, if any.

Regular Dental Check-ups

It is recommended that regular 6-month dental check-ups and cleanings be continued by your dentist during treatment.


Foods which are hard or chewy should be avoided during orthodontic treatment in order to prevent appliance breakages. Appliance breakages will complicate and thus prolong treatment.

Loose or Broken Appliances


Any breakage of the appliances (loose bands or brackets, broken wires, etc.) should be reported immediately to the office and an appointment made to repair the appliance. Do not wait until your next scheduled adjustment, as there is insufficient time during this appointment to repair appliances and make an adjustment. If a repair must be made during an adjustment appointment, you may be rescheduled at a later date in order to make an adjustment. If breakages become excessive, there may be an additional charge made for repairs.

Ceramic Brackets

Although ceramic brackets have several advantages, they also require special attention and care. In order to maintain their aesthetic appearance, these brackets must be kept clean. Any foods which have a tendency to stain (such as mustard, tea, and coffee) will turn the clear elastics around the brackets yellow over several weeks and therefore should be avoided, if possible. Ceramic brackets are more brittle than those made of metal and thus require special attention to the types of foods eaten in order to avoid breakage. Finally, ceramic brackets are much harder than the enamel on teeth. For this reason, it is important that the patient contact the doctor’s office immediately if he or she is biting on a bracket any time during treatment, as this may cause significant wear on the patient’s teeth.
