Consultation and Diagnosis
Our relationship with a client begins with an initial site visit and tree consultation. An arborist will work with you to determine your tree care needs. The arborist will inspect your trees for any visible signs of disease or insect damage as well as structural and property hazards. Your arborist will develop a tree care plan that best addresses the property owner’s needs and the health of your trees.
24-Hour Emergency Tree Care Services
New England weather constantly demands the need for Emergency Tree Care. Storms can often cause tree limbs to fail and trees to fall: damaging property and blocking access to homes, businesses, driveways and streets. Western Mass Tree Care offers year-round, 24-hour Storm Damage Services. When a tree emergency happens on your property, we can help make the untimely expense more manageable by accepting most major credit cards.
Tree Cabling and Bracing
Trees can grow in a manner in which their physical structure will no longer support their own weight. This is particularly common in mature multi-trunked trees and trees with open canopies. Failure of a large branch or trunk can result in property damage, personal injury, and the decline of a tree’s health.
Cables and bracing rods are tools arborists use to protect or improve the structural integrity of trees. The installation of cables and bracing rods, along with pruning to reduce end-weight, can reduce the likelihood of a structural failure. Properly installed cables help to redistribute structural stress and bracing rods can provide support to branch attachments deemed weak. A combination of cabling and bracing can successfully address existing splitting limbs and trunks. An Arborist can best determine if your trees can benefit from the installation of cables and bracing rods.
Tree Pruning and Tree Trimming
Pruning and trimming trees are both an art and a science. While there are as many reasons to prune a tree as there are trees, the important factor is that there is a reason to prune and trim. Each cut has the potential to change the growth habit, character, and health of a tree. Western Mass Tree Care can determine the type of pruning needed to establish and maintain the health of your trees and is an expert at pruning each species of tree to develop and maintain its unique aesthetic form.
Young trees are pruned to develop a structure that will meet the needs of the tree and the purpose it serves within a landscape. Pruning cuts are made with an eye to the future. The pruning of a mature tree is driven by practices that maintain the long-term health of the tree.
We offer services for Tree Removal, Tree Climbing, Brush Chipping and Land Clearing.
While it is often the last resort, there are circumstances when tree removal is necessary. Urban and suburban trees which are dead or declining often present a hazard to person and property. Western Mass Tree Care can assist you in making that determination. The Technicians at Western Mass Tree Care have the training, experience, and equipment to remove your trees in a safe and efficient manner. A standard tree removal will include: safely felling the tree, chipping the brush, removing the logs, cleaning up the debris, and cutting the stump just above ground level.
Western Mass Tree Care is equipped to grind any stump, regardless of the size. In a routine stump grinding, the stump is ground 4-6” below ground level. Stump grinding can also include the removal of any remaining large surface roots. Cleanup of the debris as well as loom and seeding can be provided as additional services.
Tree and Plant Health Care
Discolored leaves, dead branches, early leaf drop, fungus or decay are symptoms that are often a cause for concern. To better address situations such as those, Western Mass Tree Care can create a Plant Health Care program. The objective of such a plan is to maintain and improve your landscaped appearance, vitality, and safety – using the most cost-effective and environmentally sensitive practices and treatments available. Plant Health Care involves routine monitoring, preventive treatment, and a strong working relationship between you and Western Mass Tree Care.
Trees can enrich your life in so many ways. They provide shade, beauty, windbreak, privacy, clean air and less glare to mention a few ways they benefit you and your property. Planting or replacing a tree can have economic value as well. Trees and shrubs are valuable assets to your property. A well-maintained landscape with mature trees can increase the overall market value of your property. But the key to these benefits is to select the right tree and plant it in the right place. This not only assures a lifetime of satisfaction, but it also keeps maintenance costs low. Western Mass Tree Care will work with you to select tree species that will fill a particular role or function in your landscape.
Western Mass Tree Care only purchases locally grown trees from area nurseries and all trees and shrubs come with a 1-year warranty.
