Professional Tree Removal
An arborist or “tree surgeon” is an arboricultural professional specializing in the safe, controlled treatment or removal of healthy or damaged trees. The best are trained and qualified, such as the arborists at Yankee Tree, and use state-of-the-art tree removal equipment.
Many “Do it yourself” enthusiasts will attempt to prune and remove trees on their property by themselves; this can be dangerous. Tree cutting is listed as one of the most dangerous employments, and thousands of accidents occur every year when unqualified people attempt to work with a tree on their property. Our qualified arborists have a deep and specialized knowledge of individual trees, and how to effectively deal with them. If you have a tree on your property which you would like to prune back, or remove, call us today.
Emergency Tree Removal & Other Tree Services in Connecticut
As tree experts and tree removal specialists in Connecticut, we offer the most diversified range of tree services including: emergency tree removal, tree limb and branch removal, tree spraying, and tree injections.
Without regular pruning to keep your trees the height and shape that best suits your landscaping ideas, trees can get out of control before you know it. In most tree removal cases the story is always the same. Connecticut property owners talk about how small their trees were when they planted them. The only problem is they were planted 20-30 years ago and they’ve been growing taller each year.
Tree Removal – Do you need a tree removed from your property? Are you uncertain if it’s necessary at all? Our arborists can help you make the decision and carry out the task.
Emergency Tree Care – Emergency situations usually stem from some act of severe weather. You may need to have limbs or even entire trees removed after being damaged in a storm.
Tree Health Care – Our arborists can take measures to keep your trees healthy to prevent problems from arising.
Pruning – Our arborists can maintain or even improve the appearance and health of the trees on your property. We can ensure that your property is safe by doing things like removing limbs that interfere with electrical wires. We can not only help avoid potential hazards, but prevent further decay by removing dead or weak limbs.
Fertilization and Aeration – We can maintain and improve plant health and root growth. We do this by fertilizing and aerating the tree or using sprays or injections to control certain insect and disease problems.
Why Hire an Arborist
Beautifully Shaped Trees
We keep your trees beautifully shaped. The money you spend on regular Arborist visits is an investment that offers substantial returns. Great looking, healthy trees increase property value in Connecticut and ugly, unhealthy trees decrease property value. As your landscape matures over the years, the amount of care put into it will be easily noticeable by everyone who sees it whether they know anything about trees or not. The easiest way to get your trees working for you to increase your property value is to hire Yankee Tree for all your tree care.
Insects and Disease
Tree diseases thrive in dead decaying wood. Small, dead branches are the perfect place for fungi and other tree diseases to grow and spread into the rest of your tree if not removed. As diseases spread, larger sections of your tree will die and the disease will spread faster. As Arborist serving Connecticut, we can regularly remove all dead and dying branches from your trees to prevent the spread of disease.
As more and more dead branches accumulate, less and less direct sunlight will reach the living parts of your tree. As a result, your tree will expand outward and upward at a greater rate in order to get the sunlight it needs to survive. This kind of rapid growth is bad because major limbs will grow long and skinny and may not be strong enough to support the weight of all their leaf-bearing branches and your tree’s rapid expansion will cause it to fill its allotted space much sooner than normal resulting in crowded, overgrown trees in your landscape that will need to be removed. After we remove all the dead branches from your trees, more direct sunlight is able to reach all parts resulting in the proper development of major limbs and a much slower overall growth rate.
Consult an Arborist When You Plan Your Landscape
If you fail to plan, your plant could fail! Arborists can help you choose more appropriate tree species for the type of environment they will be planted in. Some questions that should be considered are:
- Is the area big enough for the tree? If not, when and how much tree pruning is required to comfortably train it to be the size and shape you want it?
- How much direct sunlight does the area receive? Will your new tree have to compete with larger trees in the area for food, water, and sunlight? If so, can you supplement resources to meet the needs of your tree?
