What We Do
Whether you are interested in increasing the value of your home by beautifying your property or have a dangerous tree that needs to go, our tree services will meet your needs!
There are several different ways of removing trees from a property and we are familiar with all of them. This can be as simple as felling a tree, or sometimes it may require that we bring in some machinery. In an effort to minimize the impact on the rest of your property, Pete will make sure he uses the least invasive means possible when taking a tree down. We also offer stump grinding when the removal job is finished as part of our tree services.
Not only can pruning improve the look of a tree, in many cases it can be used to improve the structure and overall health of a tree. We can remove dead or damaged wood, shape the tree, or remove parts of the tree that may be a threat to your home or property. We take great care to ensure that the remaining structure is healthy and looks nice.
We know that tree damage caused by storms can be a serious problem and a real inconvenience. If you have a compromised tree, branches down, or a limb threatening your home, we will make every effort to quickly attend to your needs.
When young trees are not maintained they can develop structural problems that may pose a threat to your property. These risks can be somewhat mitigated by installing a cable support system in the tree's canopy. To find out more about tree cabling and other tree support systems just ask Pete.
Soil Testing and Fertilizing
Sometimes a tree may be in decline and you are wondering why. We offer comprehensive soil testing to try and find the answer. If your tree would benefit from fertilization we are prepared to help.
Prior to any plant or location selections a proper soil test will be completed. This will help ensure that the site and the specimen will work together to help increase your property's value.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a ISA Certified Arborist®?
An ISA Certified Arborist® is an individual who has passed rigorous examination given by the International Society of Arboriculture. ISA Certified Arborist® are required to continue their education in order to maintain the credential.
Why hire a ISA Certified Arborist® opposed to a regular tree service?
Arborists specialize in the care of individual trees. They are knowledgeable about the needs of trees, and are trained and equipped to provide proper care. Hiring an arborist is a decision that should not be taken lightly. Proper tree care is an investment that can lead to substantial returns. Well cared-for trees are attractive and can add considerable value to your property. Poorly maintained trees can be a significant liability. Pruning or removing trees, especially large trees, can be dangerous work. Tree work should be done only by those trained and equipped to work safely in trees.
What are the benefits of maintaining my trees?
The social benefits of trees go beyond enjoying their beauty. Humans feel a calming effect from being near trees. The serenity we feel can significantly reduce stress, fatigue, and even decrease recovery time from surgery and illness. Green spaces can also help lower the level of crime within urban environments. Additionally the economic benefits of trees are both direct and indirect. Property values of landscaped homes are 5 to 20 percent higher than those of non-landscaped homes based on the species, size, condition and location of the trees included in the landscape. Trees also provide shade which can lower cooling costs for your home and reduce heating costs in the winter by acting as a windbreak.
Do you carry General Liability Insurance?
Pete Owens Arborist has General Liability Insurance. Upon request we can have the latest copy of our policy emailed to you by our insurance agent. It is very important that for your protection you request proof of insurance from anyone you consider hiring. Pete's overall goal is to improve the health and beauty of our environment and keep everyone safe and happy.
