Tree Care

Tree Maintenance & Care

Proper tree care and maintenance help keep trees healthy. There are many valid reasons why tree care services are needed in Tulsa, but let’s just cover tree pruning, tree trimming, and tree planting.  We could talk about nutrition for your trees, but we’ll let our arborist write a separate blog post about that.

Tree Pruning Service

Without a doubt, pruning is one of the most important things you can do to help your trees stay healthy. As trees grow they require pruning and structural support. Yep, it’s not just aesthetics.  It’s an important safety precaution you can take, so a tree growing rogue doesn’t cause a major structural problem later. Oklahoma’s hot summers and severe storms can threaten the health of trees. Proper tree care involves both science and art, so it’s important to have a knowledgeable arborist caring for your landscape trees.

Benefits of Pruning

– Improves tree structure and form by removing rogue or overgrown branches

– Reduces risk of branches snapping at unexpected times

– Maintains clearance for buildings, vehicles, pedestrians, and utilities wires

– Enhances flower and fruit production of the tree

Proper technique, timing, and tree biology knowledge are key to pruning success. Consult with our certified arborist to determine the best pruning solutions for your trees in Tulsa.

Tree Removal Service

Tree removal is sometimes necessary for the health, safety, and aesthetics of your property. There are several reasons you may need to remove a tree.

– The tree is dead or dying. Branches or the entire tree may fall unexpectedly during a nasty wind or snowstorm. Removing these trees eliminates this danger.

– The tree is diseased. Taking down diseased trees helps control the spread to other trees in the surrounding area.

– The tree is interfering with utility lines or buildings. Overgrown trees can cause damage to a lot of things.  If it is too close to your house its roots could cause foundation or plumbing.   Removing problematic branches or the whole tree solves issues with power lines, plumbing, roofs, and more.

– The tree obstructs views or sunlight. Some property owners choose to cut down the tree when it blocks their view. Thinning or removing a tree can let in more light.

Tree Planting

Planting new trees is always a good idea. Trees can provide beauty and benefits. But when is the right time to plant a new tree? Here are some tips for planting success in Tulsa:

Ideal Time to Plant Trees

Spring and fall are the best times for planting new trees in Tulsa. You want to avoid the harsh summer heat and winter freezes. It adds stress to newly planted trees. 

Ideally, you can plant in the fall and in the spring. During these times, soil temperatures are moderate. New roots can be established before cold or heat sets in.

Containerized trees can be planted through early summer. But take note, they should be watered frequently.

Caring for New Trees

Water is good for your tree! Every week during the first year, slow-soak the root zone. Give lots of water too during hot weather.

Mulch around the tree. Covering it with wood chips or bark will help it to retain moisture. Be careful when you do this. We don’t want to pile mulch against the trunk. That can actually damage the trunk, so put it up to the tree, but not touching the actual tree itself.

Prune only dead or damaged branches at planting. Better to wait for a year before broader pruning to allow the tree to establish itself.

Proper tree planting and aftercare is the key to successfully planting new trees. If you have any questions, feel free to give us a call.
