A certified Arborist has achieved a level of knowledge in the realm of tree care through education, experience, and certification. Their skills range from tree trimming to disease management and more. Here are some services you can expect a professional arborist to provide:
Pruning is the practice of removing dead branches from a tree to maintain its health and vigor. Above all, this practice helps to sustain proper structural development in young trees and reduces density in mature trees. Reducing a tree’s density provides a reduction in wind resistance and thus prevents storm damage. Therefore, arborists should prune trees regularly for optimal wellness.
Deep Root Fertilization
Deep root fertilization is a liquid fertilizer injected into the soil; it is the quickest way to get nutrients to the tree. Interestingly, deep root fertilization helps tree vitality by improving resistance to disease, insects, and stressful weather. Additionally, applying a high-quality and slow-release fertilizer is a great way to return natural nutrients into the soil. This is especially true in urban where organic matter does not enrich the soil.
Tree Inventory & Analysis
Like a doctor’s checkup, tree inventories inspect trees to uncover and diagnose issues before they cause significant damage. Tree inspections include a series of visual, audible, and scent inspections, which determine the health, vitality, and vigor of trees. With this information, an arborist can make helpful recommendations regarding the treatment needed. Importantly, having a certified CT arborist conduct a thorough inventory and analysis will determine whether your trees are a continued asset to your home’s property.
The pH value of soil affects how well a tree will grow and how healthy it will be. The optimal pH level is dependent upon the species of tree. In addition to this, compacted soil may need to be addressed. Compacted soil reduces the availability and intake of oxygen and water. Furthermore, this increases drought stress in the summer as temperatures rise. Air spade and verti-mulching allow trained arborists to fracture the soils without harming the root system.
Insect and Disease Management
Arborists recognize and identify beneficial insects versus pest populations. It is crucial to detect pest infestations before they reach damaging levels, especially in highly invasive species like the gypsy moth and emerald ash borer. Tree disease is also usually a simple diagnosis for an expert arborist. Preventive care is the best method to prevent tree disease because healthy trees will defend themselves against many diseases.
