Integrity Tree Service, Inc. is a full-service tree care company. We provide:
Pruning is both an art and a science. Integrity Tree Service, Inc. combines both artistic expression and research-based data in making pruning decisions. To guide these decisions, we abide by the ANSI A300 publication, Standard Practices for Pruning. ANSI A300 is the industry standard for proper tree care.
A design precept states that form follows function. The same applies to pruning trees. Beautiful trees are the result of proper tree function. When we can aid that function with the help of good pruning practices, trees are more structurally sound and they also look their best… naturally!
From time to time trees need to be removed. Some die or decline beyond recovery. Others outgrow their intended landscape purpose. Often the planting site can no longer contain them. Roots begin to damage walkways, walls or hardscape elements. Even building foundations and plumbing can be threatened. When these things occur, tree removal is often the only solution.
When the decision is made to take down a tree, we start by carefully planning the removal. We inspect the jobsite for hazards, determine how much rigging equipment will be required and if crane assistance is needed. With proper planning, even large, difficult removals can be done safely and efficiently.
Another valuable service we offer is stump grinding. This time-saving service allows us to efficiently remove large stumps to a depth of 8 – 10 inches below grade. This is usually deep enough to break up the root ball and allow replanting in the same location. While some trees are small enough to be dug out by hand, stump grinding is the best option for larger stumps.
Cabling and Bracing
Certain trees with narrow branch attachments or other structural problems require cabling and bracing. This procedure involves the installation of special hardware to prevent branches from spitting apart. A tree hazard evaluation can determine if cabling and bracing is required.
Many trees and shrubs in their natural setting don’t require fertilizer or soil amendments to survive. But due to a host of cultural problems in our urban landscapes, trees often need supplemental nutrients to grow and thrive. We offer both deep-root liquid as well as slow-release solid fertilizer applications. To realize the full benefit of fertilization, we also recommend improvement of site conditions, such as soil compaction, poor drainage and high pH.
Quarterly and Semi-Annual Maintenance Programs
For many customers we recommend a quarterly or semi-annual maintenance program. Some of the benefits include:
1. Pruning specific tree varieties at appropriate times of the year.
Consultation and Problem Diagnosis
Sometimes trees present symptoms that require investigation. Integrity Tree Service, Inc. provides a fee-based consultation service to meet this need for accurate diagnosis of tree health concerns. From insects and diseases to irrigation and soil problems, we assess your situation and provide a written report with our findings including a recommendation for treatment. Services include:
