Why Hire an Expert to Care for Your Trees?
Trees don't talk, so they can't tell you when they are sick. Most of the time, it's hard to tell when a disease or infestation has damaged your tree because it begins with barely-noticeable symptoms that you probably wouldn't recognize. A professional arborist is like a tree doctor, able to diagnose and treat your trees like only an expert can.
In the Chicago area, our trees face certain risks, such as:
- Dutch Elm Disease
- Oak Wilt
- Foliar Fungi
- Leaf Spotting
- Infestations, including Emerald Ash Borers
- Storm damage
- Lopsided growth due to branches growing in unusual and hazardous ways
The truth is, trees can have a rough time growing strong and healthy without a little tender care. If you have trees on your property, they could fall on your buildings and cause serious, costly damage. Our tree care specialists evaluate the risks involved and protect your trees and your property. We will help you keep your trees healthy so they will grace your property for years to come.
It's best to hire experts to care for your trees because experts know the tricks of the trade. They are knowledgeable about proper pruning, disease prevention, and the correct times of year to perform certain maintenance tasks.
Treat the Whole Tree, Roots, Trunk, and Branches
Our tree care programs are concerned with the entire tree, We begin with an assessment of all the trees and shrubs on your property. Then, we give you a free estimate for a plan to take care of them. Our custom plans are based on the assessment, and they are designed to protect, heal, and treat your trees. It doesn't matter if your trees are big, healthy, and vibrant, or small, sickly, and losing leaves. We care about them all. If a tree needs to be removed, we offer safe, fully-insured tree removal services and stump grinding, too.
Tree roots are best left alone. Tree roots that are cut or removed put the entire tree at risk of rot. Instead of cutting roots, we recommend putting up root barriers. These barriers keep roots away from your building's foundations. For roots that are growing aboveground, we can create a change in your landscape that will cover the roots, so no one can trip on them.
How do we care for a tree trunk? We keep away pests, trim off small twigs, and prevent diseases. We do use pesticides and chemical deterrents. Please let us know if you are concerned about using chemicals in your yard. We will work with you to come up with a plan that we can all agree on.
Trimming and Pruning
Proper trimming and pruning methods keep trees healthy and attractive. They encourage growth in all the right directions. We will keep an eye on the direction your branches grow. Regular trimming prevents problems before they become costly or dangerous. It also helps prevent too many branches from growing, which is a problem in itself. Overgrowth limits the amount of food and water that gets to each branch.
We'll get rid of the weeds that bother your trees. This includes invasive ivy and fungi. Our effective herbicides and fungicides take care of invasive plants, giving your trees room to breathe freely and look as majestic as they really are.
Support for Your Trees
Not all trees grow evenly. Some older trees have been left alone to grow lopsided or in a Y-shape, creating a risk for a split. Instead of cutting down these trees, our specialists may suggest cabling or bracing them to save both the tree and surrounding structures.
Barrington experiences a full four seasons, which allows for a dormant season for your trees. Much of our tree care services, including pruning, are saved for the dormant season. We also prepare your trees for winter's cold. We deter pests and rodents that might want to burrow into the base of the tree. We spread a layer of mulch around the tree base to protect the roots from the freezing temperatures. Some trees benefit from a winter trunk wrap, which gives extra insulation and prevents sunscald.
We love the promise of a sapling. That's why we protect young trees and give them the special treatment they need to give them a great start. Need some advice about what kind of tree would grow great in your landscape? Our arborists will be happy to help you find the perfect tree variety, giving you valuable information about growth speed, height, and special needs. We will help you decide the best placement, looking at distances from other trees, power lines, and buildings.
After the tree is planted, we will give it the proper fertilization and preventative treatments it needs to grow. All tree care plans include copious notes that allow our staff to keep a watchful eye on any potential problems.
