To provide you with a free estimate, our office staff takes detailed notes about what you would like done to your trees as well as the location of your trees in relation to standing at your house facing the front door. This information is then passed on to one of our two arborists or our licensed applicator. They group estimates together by location and visit as many trees as possible each day. Treeo is happy to call you with an estimate, leave one at your home for you, or most commonly email an estimate to you. Depending on how busy we are, this process can take anywhere from a day or two up to a week. If an arborist visits your tree and feels they need to meet with you we will schedule a consultation appointment at no charge to you.
A diagnosis is when an arborist comes out to inspect and evaluate your tree but does not provide you with any type of estimate. Upon your request, Treeo is happy to write you a statement including the findings from our visit as well as the current condition of your tree. There is a $60.00 charge associated with this service.
After your stump has been ground there will be a pile of mulch in your yard.
There are also circumstances where the ground must be dry so that we do not cause any damage to your lawn or property. In these cases we are grateful for our client’s patience as we wait out the soggy weather, and get them on the schedule when the ground is firm.
Commonly used Terminology:
Lateral pruning refers to cutting tree branches back to the nearest green lateral branch.
Green lateral branch is a living limb that is at least 1/3 the size of the limb being cut.
Parent limb is a dominant lead or part of the main trunk system of a tree that branches typically grow from.
Crown is the woody and leafy section of a tree. It is made up of limbs, branches, twigs, and leaves.
Canopy is the horizontal area that the crown covers.
Drip line is the outside circumference of a tree’s canopy.
Crown reduction is a decrease in height and/or spread of the foliage bearing sections of a tree.
Dieback is when tips of branches exhibit no signs of life.
Deadwood is removing branches or stems that are non-living.
Decline is when a tree shows signs of reduced leaf size, color or density (lack of vitality).
Thinning is when the density of live branches is reduced to allow air to pass through the canopy instead of pushing into it or to allow sunlight to penetrate the inner foliage to promote longevity of inner branches.
Sucker growth is a clone of the plant growing from the plant’s base or root flare.
Root flare is the area at the base of a trunk where the tree joins the roots.
