Tree Trimming and Tree Pruning: Are They the Same?
Actually, no. Tree trimming and tree pruning are two different things. Trimming is done for aesthetic appeal. Pruning is a type of cutting done to guide the growth of the tree, so it will mature in a safe and healthy manner. Both trimming and pruning need to be done at a certain time of year to be effective. It's best to let a professional handle the job.
When your trees and shrubs are properly trimmed and pruned:
- They look more beautiful.
- They grow to their full potential.
- Any hazardous branches are removed.
NOTE: Oaks and American elms can ONLY be trimmed in their dormant stage.
Reduce the likelihood of Oak Wilt and Dutch Elm Disease by trimming Oaks and Elms while they are dormant. In fact, winter is a great time to get all your trees and shrubs trimmed. Give us a call at any time of the year, and we'll come over and make a plan for future trimming.
Kildeer Tree Removal Services
Whenever we can save a tree, we will. Sometimes, it's necessary to remove a tree. McGinty Bros. is a fully-insured tree removal company. We have the experience and equipment to remove even the most difficult trees. For example, you may have a tree that is hanging dangerously over your house or garage. Or, you may have a big tree that needs to be removed, and it's growing in a narrow piece of yard. These tricky situations require technical maneuvers. When other tree companies decline, you can count on McGinty Bros. to take the tree down safely!
After the tree is cut down, we will grind the stump up to 12" below the original grade. The wood chips from the stump can then be used as mulch for the rest of your landscape. (If you don't want the wood chips, we can take them away for you.)
Treating Tree Diseases Are Part of Our Expert Tree Service
Diseases, insects, and fungi attack trees all over our service area. We work hard to keep them at bay. Some of the disease problems we fight include:
- Foliar Fungi
- Leaf Spotting
- Dutch Elm Disease (we use a DutchTrig® injection to prevent this disease)
What's the best way to keep your trees disease-free? Preventative treatments. We offer effective preventative treatment plans for all types of trees.
If you have noticed damage in one or more of your trees, unfortunately, it may already be too late to control the disease. Give us a call, and we'll send an Arborist over to take a look. All disease control plans begin with a free analysis. Then, we'll create a customized pest and disease management plan. It's our job to do everything we can to get your trees healthy again.
Fight Against the Pesky Emerald Ash Borer
Emerald Ash Borers are small beetles, metallic-green in color. They bore into ash trees and disrupt the tree's ability to transport nutrients. These small insects can create big disasters. Is your ash tree infected? Take a close look. It may be infected if:
- there are suckers at the base of the tree
- the tree's bark is splitting
- beneath the bark there are marks of tunneling
- you spot D-shaped exit holes
- woodpeckers have been pecking at your tree
- the leaves at the crown of the tree are dying
When we catch this infestation early, we can treat it and prevent further damage. Call us to evaluate your ash trees.
Stop Harmful Insects in Their Tracks
The professional Arborists on our tree care team correctly apply insect control applications to trees that have been damaged or are at risk of damage by insects. Timing is very important when it comes to insect control applications. Don't let these harmful insects create havoc in your trees and shrubs:
- Leaf Miners
- Lace Bugs
- Plant Bugs
- Sap Suckers
- Box Elder Bugs
We can also apply insect control applications around the foundation of your home.
