  • 5 Ways to Prepare your Trees for the Summer Heat

    Being pro-active about your tree care will help your trees survive and thrive in the coming summer heat. The spring season is the perfect time to establish a yard maintenance routine to follow throughout the coming months. At 770-Tree-Guy, our team of certified arborists has compiled a list of the best measures you can take to keep your trees healthy and cool:

    1. Say Hello to Proper Hydration—If there has not been rain, your trees will probably need to be watered at least once or twice a week. Your tree could need additional watering if you recently planted it to ensure rapid root growth. Your trees require more water than you probably realize. Dumping a watering can’s worth of water at the base of the tree is not nearly enough. Trees need water to penetrate to the roots to remain hydrated. Set up your hose on a slow setting and you can likely leave it running for an hour during the intensely hot months.
    2. Mulch Properly—We are extremely passionate about the many benefits of mulch. Mulching is the single best thing you can do for your trees. Mulch helps your tree retain necessary moisture, absorb helpful nutrients, prevent competing weed growth, and avoid being scorched by the blazing heat. Make sure to follow proper mulching technique of not placing more than 3-4 inches of mulch. There is such a thing as too much mulch. At 770-Tree-Guy, we make quality mulch in a variety of colors to suit your landscape and nourish your trees at the same time. Call today to schedule your mulch delivery!
    3. Do a Deep Root Fertilization—Many homeowners will put fertilizer at the base of their tree when the roots truly are the part in need. Using an injection process with fertilizer and water, you can directly infuse your trees’ roots. Healthy roots lead to a healthy tree. If you need guidance with this process, reach out to one of our tree professionals.
    4. Avoid Pruning Unless Absolutely Necessary—The summer heat is relentless in Georgia. Pruning your tree could be compared to taking away your tree’s umbrella or sunglasses right when they need it. Leaves on trees provide protection from the sun. Also, freshly trimmed portions of trees could be dwarfed or less healthy due to scorching from the sun. If you must prune, only trim away dead or diseased branches. When in doubt, reach out to us before you start pruning.
    5. Call 770-Tree-Guy for Tree Services—Whether you need help with pruning, assessing tree health, laying mulch, or anything in between, we are ready to help with your tree service needs. Call today to schedule!
  • The Magic of Mulch:

    Mulch can improve the health of your soil and everything that grows in it. Consider that mulch is the food that your trees need to truly thrive. Since quality mulch encourages quality soil, you will notice a difference in the health of your yard after choosing to mulch. At 770-Tree-Guy, we are so passionate about how mulch can transform your yard that we make our own. Our mulch is made from blends of hardwoods and conifer trees, which have been pH balanced to break down into highly oxygen rich soil. We have a variety of color choices which will improve the appearance of your yard and the health of your soil and plants.

    FAQs about Mulch:

    • Why should I consider mulch over pine straw?—Pine straw has been utilized as a ground covering in landscaping for many years because of its appearance, inexpensive cost, and availability. Although pine straw is better than having no covering as a barrier for your beds, it simply does not provide the same value as mulch. Mulch does far more than impact the aesthetic of your yard. When used properly, mulch can help retain needed moisture, block out competing root growth, safeguard your roots from scorching sun, and combat the impact of hard Georgia red clay.
    • How is mulch different than wood chips?—Many tree companies will bring a machine to chop up wood chips on site at your home. The wood chip making process is extremely loud and can disrupt the peaceful atmosphere in your neighborhood. Also, wood may not be chopped finely and precisely with this method. Wood chips have not been allowed to sit and decompose to allow the ideal breakdown before applying them to your soil. Because of this, wood chips can deplete nitrogen, while mulch adds it into the soil.
    • Does using mulch require a lot of work?—Homeowners are often surprised to find out that mulch actually cuts down on their yard maintenance. Once applied, mulch usually does not have to be replaced for about 6 months. During this time, your soil is being fed nutrients from the mulch breaking down so fertilizing is generally not necessary anymore to have good soil. Also, the water retaining quality of mulch minimizes the need to water frequently. Your yard can thrive with little upkeep if you have properly mulched.
    • How much mulch should be used?—A little mulch goes a long way, so you only need about three inches of mulch, equating to 1 cubic yard of mulch covering 100 square feet at 3 inches. Too much mulch can be problematic because it can retain excessive moisture and encourage rot.
    • How is 770-Tree-Guy’s mulch different?—Our mulch can be trusted because it is made under the watchful eyes of licensed arborists. We are passionate about creating optimized mulch which not only looks great but feeds your soil. At 770-Tree-Guy, we use a blend of hardwoods and conifers, which have been perfectly pH balanced. Our goal is to provide mulch that transforms the health and appearance of your yard.

    If you are interested in our quality mulch, call us and schedule a mulch delivery. We will bring what you need right to your yard. Improve your yard and your soil through the magic of mulch!

     

  • Tree Damage – Insurance Claims

    Whether the result of a storm or a tree’s condition, many homeowners will experience a tree falling on their property at some point. When a tree falls, it ideally falls away from the home…sometimes, unfortunately, it does not. There is a silver lining, however. If a tree has fallen on your home, deck, workshop, fence, or across your driveway blocking access to your home, your home insurance provider will cover it.

    There’s A Tree on My Home! Now What?

    Believe it or not, your insurance provider can be pretty particular about the steps taken after an event that has damaged your home or an extension of your home. The information you need is in your policy, but it’s often buried deep, which is a problem in and of itself. If a tree is down on your home or extension of your home, the “next steps” can be overwhelming…but they don’t have to be. Just remember to “S.I.T.”

    1. Safety: Prioritize Safety First​— Exit your home as quickly and safely as possible, then notify necessary emergency services (i.e. the fire department if your home is on fire, or the power company if lines are down.)
    2. Insurance Provider: Once your family’s safety has been established and emergency services have been notified (if necessary,) notifying your insurance provider and filing a claim is the next important step. Your insurance provider will likely instruct you to hire a reputable tree service to tackle the tree work, and to notify them once the work is completed. An adjuster will be sent out to assess the damage, but not before the debris is gone. The adjuster cannot accurately assess damages and estimate repair costs otherwise.
    3. Tree: Call 770-Tree-Guy at (770) 873-3489. We have the expertise, experience, and equipment needed to safely remove the tree(s) and debris – and will do so with a focus on preserving your property. “Preservation of Property” is high up on your insurance provider’s list of priorities…second only to your family’s safety.

    Tips (And Other Useful Information)

    -Multiple Bids – are they mandatory? Your insurance provider may suggest that you get multiple bids, but doing so is rarely mandatory. In fact, it can often be completely impractical. In the aftermath of a hurricane, for example, a community’s tree damage workload far exceeds the workforce available to handle it. Can you imagine trying to line up multiple bids? There is a tree on your home! Time is of the essence.

    -The $500.00 Myth – Oftentimes, homeowners are under the impression that their insurer will only contribute $500.00 toward a tree removal project. Typically, policies do commit a set amount of $500.00 for debris removal, but that pertains specifically to the hauling of debris from your property, after the technical tree work has been performed. The actual removal a tree from your home, outbuilding, etc. requires a completely different calculation and is a separate line item in the estimate.

    -Payment – When possible, hire contractors who don’t require payment until you have been reimbursed by your insurance provider. In many cases, 770-Tree-Guy will work directly with the insurance carrier to arrange payment, removing that responsibility the homeowner’s plate entirely. It is not uncommon for contractors to request partial or full payment up front, particularly in the all the chaos following a major weather event. Don’t do it!

    -Your Vehicle(s) – If a tree or debris has fallen on one or more of your vehicles, but not your home or extended property, that damage is more appropriately covered by your auto insurance provider.

    -Insured Contractors – Be sure all contractors you use have both liability insurance, AND worker’s compensation. In addition to performing tree work and helping you walk through early stages of the claim process, 770-Tree-Guy can assist in sourcing other contractors needed for the balance of the project. In most cases, they too will be an advocate for you during the claim process.
