From tree removal to pruning, Trees Unlimited in Rutland, MA, is your go-to source for reliable tree services. Allow us to put our extensive experience to work for your tree needs – you won’t be disappointed.
Removing a tree on your own is a very dangerous job, and requires the expertise of a professional. Using modern equipment, such as aerial lift trucks (buckets) and cranes, we can remove the largest or smallest trees and increase the safety of your property.
As an added bonus, we are trained in safety and advanced techniques – including electrical hazard awareness training and tree risk evaluation – for the safe removal and cleanup of dead or unwanted trees and shrubs.
Say Good-Bye to the Stump
Using the state-of-the-art stump grinder, we can remove an unwanted stump from your back or front yard. After grinding the stump below grade, we will happily clean up the leftover mulch or leave it for your gardens or surrounding shrubs.
Keeping your trees pruned properly not only enhances the aesthetics of your property, but also increases your safety. Our tree service involves many different objectives, including removing deadwood.
The Risk of Deadwood
Deadwood is an entry port into the tree for viral, fungal, bacterial pathogens, borers, carpenter ants, and termites. There is also the physical danger of large deadwood falling on people or property. Additionally, it’s considered a hazard by many insurance companies.
If it causes damage or harm, it could be considered to the property owner’s negligence. This often negates the payment of a claim, putting the financial burden on the homeowner.
Evaluating the Problem
With our experience in the industry, trust us to evaluate your trees for potential risk from weak branches, leads, crotches, or decay, which could fall and damage your property, or worse, a pedestrian. Eliminate the risk with our expert tree services.
In addition to removing deadwood, removing hazardous limbs is another important aspect of the tree service. Sometimes limbs can grow very fast and not have enough support strength to withstand high winds, snow, or ice. If the limbs hang over power lines or roofs, they can break and cause damage. No worries – we offer the tree services you need.
Bracing & Cabling
Don’t let weak branches become a problem. Instead, turn to us for our expert tree services. We’ll supply you with artificial support by cabling or bolting two weak branches or “V” crotches together and to the tree itself; thus adding extra protection to prevent damage from breaking onto homes or property.
Trees are sometimes cut back in height to prevent breakage, especially with certain species that have a tendency to grow quickly with not enough strength to weight ratio to support themselves. Thinning is done to open the interior of the tree to promote air passage so disease cannot grow. Diseases grow much better in moist conditions. Thinning is also done to keep wind resistance down to prevent trees from blowing over.
Tree Planting & Tree Fertilizing
Let us choose the proper tree and placement that works best on your property.
Shaping trees is purely for aesthetic reasons. Trees sometimes grow in strange shapes and need to be brought back to conform to other plants in the landscape.
Trees can sometimes be raised up called crown raising to elevate the height of low branches over buildings, driveways, or just for head clearance when mowing the lawn.
Professional Insect and Disease Control
Insects and diseases damage plants and trees. Prevent problems with the foliage and plants around your property with professional insect and disease control services from Trees Unlimited.
When left unchecked for too long, plants may become weakened beyond the point of saving. Additionally, the improper use of pesticides can make the problem worse, as this eradicates beneficial insects and microorganisms that help the plant or tree.
The Asian Long-Horned Beetle
Certified arborist Karl Smith has the experience to diagnose a variety of problems associated with tree health and maintenance. A prime example is the invasion of the Asian long-horned beetle, an invasive species that swept through Massachusetts and destroyed native tree species.
It's incredibly important to take care of the beetle before they spread outside of the infected area. This special certification was created to handle the insect, and it is recommended that only those who are certified work with the infected trees.
Let the professionals, including certified arborist Karl Smith, perform a range of insect and disease control treatments for your trees. We even offer a variety of solutions and persistently fine-tune the recommendations to eliminate the problem.
Should a pest become well-established and out of control, or economic constraints prevent organic treatment, chemical applications are the best course of action. Each year we aim to use less and less chemically-based treatments.
When you're unsure of what to do with your property, let us help. We'll discuss our services, experience, and our extensive certifications, as well as provide you with an analysis, control, and cost of your insect or disease problems.
One of the most important and highly sophisticated aspects of controlling any tree problem is proper diagnosis. Unlike most companies, we use proper procedures and scientific research to determine issues and suggest the right treatments.
