  • Winter Preparation for Your Trees: Mulch

    The season of scarves, sweaters, cozy blankets, and hot chocolate is upon us. As you are bundling up your family for the cold, remember to help your trees be layered up for winter too. Trees and shrubs must endure through harsh conditions throughout the winter, so the least we can do is tuck them in with a blanket of mulch. Fall is the ideal time to prepare your yard for the season ahead. Although the temperatures are cooler now, we have not reached freezing temperatures yet. The 770-Tree-Guy team can guide you on how to bundle up your trees with mulch properly before the freeze hits.

    Reasons to Mulch in the Fall:

    •       Save Time in the Spring–Mulching in the fall actually saves time when you are caring for your yard in the spring. The mulch you place in the fall will not completely breakdown throughout the winter, so you will not have to work hard mulching in the spring.
    •   Work in Pleasant Conditions—When temperatures are comfortable during the fall days, you will be unlikely to even work up a sweat while you are mulching.
    •   Help Your Trees be Protected in Winter—Think of mulch as a thick winter coat. You will trap warm air to provide insulation for your trees’ roots.

    Tips for Fall Mulching:

    •   Create a Layer of Mulch 2-4 Inches Deep and Spanning a 3 Foot Diameter—More is not always better when it comes to mulch. Stay within the advised range for the mulch to provide the desired benefits. You could smother the base of your tree with excessive amounts of mulch.  Also, do not build up the mulch around the tree trunk. Piling the mulch up high around the trunk can allow moisture to build up and lead to rot.
    •   Use An Organic Mulch—You could utilize your own natural mulch or purchase some, but we recommend sticking to organic mulch. Organic mulch infuses your soil with incredible benefits for the long-term health of your trees and shrubs. We sell fully organic recycled mulch, so reach out to us if you would like to get some of our quality mulch. We offer a variety of colors to fit every yard’s style.

    Keep your yard healthy this winter and start mulching. If you need mulch or assistance, contact 770-Tree-Guy today! We are happy to help you bundle up your bushes and trees.

  • Beautiful Trees for Fall Foliage

    The rainbow of colors painted on leaves in the fall is one of the best parts of fall. Going hiking to see a beautiful autumn view is a nice weekend adventure but getting to have a masterpiece of color outside of your window each day is truly amazing. 770-Tree-Guy can help you find the perfect trees to create your own seasonal rainbow. If you are interested in adding some trees with incredible fall foliage, consider these five showstoppers of the Southeast:

    Red Oak—Clothed in crimson in the fall, the red oak grows reasonably quickly and generally tops off around 50-75 feet. The red oak is durable and tolerant of different soils. This tree provides great shade coverage and requires little maintenance.

    Sweetgum—With star shaped leaves, the sweetgum has a distinct look. The color spectrum can range from red to yellow to orange to purple. They are hardy trees and survive well in a variety of soil types. The sweetgum earns its name by also having a beautiful fragrance. Typically, the sweetgum grows to the height of 60-80 feet.

    Sassafras—Topping out around 60 feet, the sassafras offers a range of colors including yellow, red, and purple. Part of its sass is a distinct licorice like smell, which repels mosquitos, but smells pleasant to us.

    Japanese Maple—Smaller in stature but eye-catching anyways, the Japanese maple can range from a few feet to 30 feet depending on the variety. The most recognizable variety has bright red leaves, but there are some Japanese maples which are gold or orange as well. This smaller tree likes a little shade so it can be a strong choice right outside of your home or along your garden path.

    Ginkgo—Brighten up your yard with a pop of yellow! The Ginkgo tree has a distinct leaf shape and a cheery yellow hue. They grow between 25-50 feet on average. This tree is hardy and adaptable to a variety of soil types.

    If you need help from a tree expert to determine the best fit for your yard, schedule a consultation with 770-Tree-Guy. We are happy to help you create your autumn scene.

  • How to Care for Storm Damaged Trees

    Your trees endure storms day in and day out. Sometimes, the weather can get the best of your trees. Whether struck by lightning or hit with intense wind, your trees can become storm damaged and a liability for your family. You may not know whether your tree is dead afterwards, at risk of falling, or will recover on its own. At 770-Tree-Guy, our team is run by certified arborists, which are essentially tree doctors. We are also TRAQ (Tree Risk Assessment Qualified) certified so we can make informed recommendations about your storm damaged trees. If you have storm damaged trees, follow these important tips:

    •       Make Sure That You Are Safe—Not all storm damaged trees are dangerous, but your tree could drop branches or fall later even if it stood up to the initial damage. There are crucial signs to look out for when you have a damaged tree, such as split tree branches, leaning, hanging branches, broken treetops, damage or decay in tree trunk, or new visible roots or uprooting. If you have observed any of these signs, please contact 770-Tree-Guy right away. We want to ensure your safety and address your storm damaged tree. You should avoid DIY care for your storm damaged tree and entrust your care to a trained professional armed with the right equipment for a safe solution. Trees are heavy and powerful so you could endanger your home or family by not informing a professional.
    •       Only Use DIY Care on Small Branches—If there are small branches broken or hanging from your storm damaged tree, you can prune these branches carefully to prevent further damage. Large branches should always be left to professionals. You should not place yourself or your home at risk by pruning anything large. When in doubt about the safety of pruning a branch, do not try it yourself. Call our professional team!
    •       Check Tree Splits Carefully—If your split tree is not hanging or deformed, your tree will probably heal without any intervention. A small split is like a papercut—it is annoying, but it will go away on its own. When a split is more severe or on the trunk of a tree, this is a time to call in the tree doctors. A significant split will not heal up naturally. Your tree may recover from this damage without dying, but it will need medical attention. We can help you get your tree on the path to recovery quickly. When in doubt about the severity of a split, call us for an assessment just in case.
    •       Never Let Your Trees Be Topped—Whether topped by a homeowner or a “professional,” tree topping is a dangerous practice which should not be done. Tree topping can permanently damage your trees and make them a liability anytime a storm comes. When trees are topped, their branches will grow back in a weakened condition, which will make them a risk for breaking or the tree toppling. If a tree company recommends topping, they are not a tree company worth using. Not only is the practice terrible for the tree, but it is also putting you and your home at a significant risk. If less than 50% of your tree’s top is damaged, we may be able to nurse your damaged tree back to health. If more than 50% is damaged, the tree may be beyond repair and require removal. We are deeply passionate about trees and never recommend removal unless that is the only viable choice to keep you and your property safe.
    •       Choose a Licensed and Certified Tree Service—Trees are too large and powerful to let just anyone handle their care. A licensed and certified service will have the experience, training, and equipment to ensure that your storm damaged tree does not do further damage to your property or home. When you choose 770-Tree-Guy, you can feel confident that your storm damaged trees will get the appropriate care and your safety will always remain our highest priority.


    If you have a storm damaged tree that you are concerned about, call 770-Tree-Guy today to schedule an assessment. We will dispatch quickly to make sure that you stay safe!
