About our services
Every tree is unique and needs specific care to maintain its health and beauty. Different environments and objectives require an individual tree by tree approach. Tree and shrub pruning by Smith’s Tree Care will improve the appearance, health, and longevity of your landscape.
We perform storm damage repair, and prune limbs to obtain clearance from structures, service lines and buildings, right-aways and vistas.
Tree Trimming and Pruning
The objective of pruning is to produce strong, healthy, safe, and aesthetically attractive trees. Smith’s Tree Care understands how, when and why to prune. Crown thinning helps to improve the structure of a plant consists of removing dead branches, weak or rubbing branches, and thinning suckers and/or branch structure.
Unfortunately there are occasions when a tree needs to be removed. As responsible tree care professionals we have the experience and equipment to get the job done safely and efficiently.
Smith’s Tree Care specializes in unsafe and difficult removals. This includes dead or severely damaged trees, trees close to structures and power lines, damaged trees due to structure failure, and trees and shrubs in the way of home or office improvement. No tree removal is too difficult for us.
Smith’s Tree Care has a special self propelled, radio controlled stump grinder. This versatile, narrow machine will allow access to almost all backyards with narrow access gates.
Cable and Bracing
Trees can grow with natural flaws such as included bark. Included bark weakens the branch union. Smith’s Tree Care exclusively uses the Tree Care Industry standard procedure for cabling trees to help prevent them from splitting apart during storms. This proven method of cabling is accomplished by drilling an anchor rod through the trunks of the tree and connecting them with a steel cable. This procedure does not damage or affect the health of the tree in any way.
Other methods of cabling, such as using an anchor screw, will most likely result in the screw being pulled through the tree.
Tree lightning protection systems are highly effective at protecting trees and property around them. Smith’s Tree Care strives to make lightning protection systems as effective as possible while keeping the cost as low as possible.
Fertilizing helps trees and shrubs fight off disease, insects, withstand draught and encourage longevity. Smith’s Tree Care uses the top products that the market has to offer.
Pre Construction Consultation
Minimizing stress to the trees you value during the construction process is paramount to the survival of those trees. Smith’s Tree Care will fence off the root zones of your trees to keep heavy machinery from compacting the soil and destroying the roots that deliver essential nutrients to your trees.
Insect and Disease Management
Smith’s Tree Care stays current with the skills and knowledge needed to effectively protect your plants and the environment.We are dedicated to protecting the environment and we believe the best approach to plant health care is to proactively manage insect and disease related issues. If these issues are treated early, then the amount of chemical intervention is minimal. If insect and disease problems have gotten out of hand, Smith’s Tree Care will always recommend the least invasive treatment program needed to get your situation under control.
24 Hour Emergency Service
With our 24 hour emergency storm damage service, Smith’s Tree Care will be there to help you when you are in need.
Modern weather forecasting may alert you of an oncoming storm. But even the most accurate forecasting will not prevent sustaining damage to your valued trees and shrubs.
With our equipment and experience, Smith’s Tree Care can safely remove dangerous and fallen trees from your home, cars and other structures.
Smith’s Tree Care offers an in house Crane Service. A crane is often the key equipment to safely remove dead hazardous and large trees. Cranes offer many advantages over manual removal. Our short wheel base hydraulictruck crane allows us to access many different areas of a property, or we can simply use the street access to reach the tree and remove it piece by piece. Typically, when a tree is removed with a crane, the tree climber makes far fewer cuts, the logs are longer, and the tree is more quickly removed. In addition, the benefits of using a crane are that all surrounding plants and grass will remain untouched. We also regularly rent our crane to other tree companies with operator.
Smith’s Tree Care will clean-up your Lot or Property by removing unwanted growth, brush and trees.
