  • When is it Time to Remove a Tree?

    Resorting to tree removal is a sad moment, but sometimes it is necessary for the health and safety of your yard. As tree enthusiasts, the team at 770-Tree-Guy will always help you explore every possible alternative to removal. When removal is necessary, you can trust us to remove the tree without damaging your property or leaving a mess.

    There are seven solid reasons to consider tree removal. If you are unsure whether your tree fits one of these categories, you can schedule an evaluation by one of our arborists. We will assess the health of your trees and identify any potential safety hazards.

    Reasons for Removal

    • Sickness–Early detection of diseases can help you avoid tree removal. If one tree is diseased, it can spread the disease to your healthy trees and have a major impact on the health of your yard as a whole. As tree doctors, we always look for ways to treat the tree, but if the tree is going to endanger your yard and other trees, removal may be necessary.
    • Death–Leaving a dead tree in your yard is dangerous. Dead trees are more likely to fall, drop branches, and harbor pests. As soon as you identify a dead tree, give us a call. We can haul the dead tree away to be repurposed into organic mulch to help improve the lives of other living trees. 
    • Damage–If your tree has experienced storm damage, it has the potential to be a fall risk.  It is important to note that the structure of the tree could be thrown off if large branches have fallen or the trunk was struck by lightning. In addition to being a fall risk, damaged sections of a tree will be more susceptible to disease and pests. Removing the damaged tree will protect your other healthy trees from being exposed to disease or pests.
    • Interference–If a tree is interfering with your power, water, or sewer lines, the tree should be removed. Also, if a tree is too close to your house or property buildings, removing the tree may be necessary to avoid problems when the next storm hits. In some cases, trimming the trees may be enough to mitigate the risk. We can help you determine the risk if you need support.
    • Clearing–Tree removal may be necessary to make room for new construction projects. If you have a tree hindering your renovation plans or installing your backyard fence, this is a legitimate reason to consider tree removal. 
    • Placement–Each species of tree requires different spacing to accommodate growth. If trees were not properly spaced, you may have to remove a tree to allow for space for the tree’s roots and foliage as well as to avoid over-competition for nutrients. 
    • Neatness–Do you have a tree that drops needles, fruit, flowers, seeds, or leaves constantly? Messy trees can be a homeowner’s nightmare because they make your yard look unkempt even when you are maintaining your yard regularly. For this reason, your yard and your peace of mind may be better protected by removing the troublesome tree.

     

    If you need a tree removed, 770-Tree-Guy can help. Although having a tree removed should not be taken lightly, it is sometimes necessary. We are also available for consultations if you need to assess whether a tree should be removed.

  • If a Neighbor’s Tree Falls on my Property, Who is Responsible for Removal?

    A fallen tree can not only damage your home or yard but could also damage your relationship with your neighbors. When a tree falls from your neighbor’s yard onto your car or home, staying calm and civil may become difficult. As a tree company led by arborists, 770-Tree-Guy recommends practicing proper tree maintenance to help avoid fallen trees and conflicts in the future.

    Why do Trees Fall?

    There are two main reasons for a tree to fall: disease or storm damage. Although storms cannot be prevented, practicing proper pruning will help keep your tree balanced and minimize the chance of a fall. If you have a tree overhanging your neighbor’s property or they have one overhanging your property, address these branches proactively before they fall later. It is important to note that as a homeowner, you are permitted to trim back your neighbor’s tree if it extends onto your property, as long as you do not cause harm to the tree. You are not permitted to cross your neighbor’s property to prune. We highly recommend having a conversation before pruning their tree. Tree illness can often be addressed well before a tree becomes a fall risk. If you have any trees that show signs of illness (such as fungus, infestations, discolored leaves, bare patches, etc.), call us to evaluate and offer suggestions. Tree removal is always the last resort when the risk of falling will endanger your family or your neighbors. Trees that are dead or severely diseased are at the greatest risk of falling. 

    My Neighbor’s Tree Fell on My House–Who is Responsible?

    Blaming the owner of the tree seems obvious, but this is not always the case. For example, if your neighbor’s perfectly healthy tree is hit by lightning, falls, and damages your property, you are responsible for the repairs and cleanup. We recommend referring to your homeowner policy. You may have full or partial coverage to help with the expenses. If your neighbor has a sickly or dead tree and chooses to not do something about it and it falls, then the neighbor will be liable for your damages. In short, the tree owner is responsible if they have been negligent. 

    Whether your tree falls on a neighbor’s property or a neighbor’s tree falls on yours, stay calm and make sure everyone is safe. Safety should be the first concern. Remember that fallen trees can take down power lines and be conductors of electricity. Once you make sure everyone is safe, take photos of the scene. Photos will be helpful for yours or your neighbor’s insurance company. Afterward, give your insurance company a call to determine how to file your claim. The final step is to call 770-Tree-Guy for a safe tree removal and cleanup. 

    Whether you want a proactive evaluation of your trees or you need support after a tree has fallen, our team at 770-Tree-Guy is standing by to help!

  • Which is the Best Mulch to Prevent Weeds?

    Which is the Best Mulch to Prevent Weeds?

    Spring is a season for new life. As your plants start to grow, the weeds often start popping up too. Weeds are a problem for your yard for several reasons. First off, weeds will make your yard look unkempt. Weeds will also compete for the valuable nutrients in your soil that your plants need. An overgrown yard full of weeds will encourage pests as well. 

    Mulch is an effective solution for controlling weeds. For over a decade, the arborists at 770-TREE-GUY have been advocating the benefits of mulch. Using mulch is the best decision you can make for the health of your trees and yard. Because we believe in mulch so much, we offer blown mulch services for easy application, and we make our own organic mulch, recycled from green waste. If you are trying to determine which mulch is best for weed control, our team can help.

    Best Mulch for Weed Control

    There are a variety of materials that can be used for mulch, from wood chips to straw to compost, but we have found that organic mulch is our preferred choice. Some varieties of mulch that people purchase from large retailers may have added chemicals in them or weed seeds. We recommend being very careful when purchasing pre-bagged varieties of mulch. Pine bark nuggets look neat when used around landscaping, but they are not as effective for weed prevention. They are slow to break down, and they do not hold together like some other mulch types. Composting leaves from your yard can be effective mulch for the health of your soil, but this type of mulch tends to look less tidy.

    Benefits of Choosing our Organic Mulch

    •       Locally Sourced—Many homeowners complain about their bagged mulch looking different even when they bought the same kind. Although there will be some variability in your mulch, mulch prepared all in one place in your region will have a better chance of looking uniform. Also, using  mulch created in our region ensures that the mulch blends harmoniously with your yard’s ecosystem.
    •       Accessibility—Since we are in the tree industry, we have an ongoing supply of green waste to create more quality mulch. There will not be any supply chain issues or worries that your type of mulch is out of stock. We make accessing mulch easier than ever with mulch delivery and/or our blown mulch service. Our team can have all your yard’s mulch completed in a few hours.
    •       Quality Assurance—As a company run by an arborist, we are deeply passionate about trees and the environment. You can trust that we are not using anything harmful in our mulch creation process. Our quality mulch is chock full of nutrients to improve your soil quality.

    If you are ready to get the upper hand in your fight against weeds, start mulching! 770-TREE-GUY can supply you with the best quality mulch to improve the health and appearance of your yard.
