Tree Inventory

If you are interested in the collective value and health of the trees on your property, we can provide a comprehensive tree inventory. Cataloging size, age, state of health, and location, tree inventories can be very helpful for homeowners and commercial properties that want to monitor care and replacement of their collection.


Lightening protection

When trees have grown to "heritage" status and loom above our homes and playspace, they are targets for lightening strikes.  It is devastating to lose generation-old trees to a passing storm.  It also creates a safety hazard for everything in its shadow.  Lightening protection can ground the tree so that damage is avoided or minimized.  Our team can install discreet grounding wires that will protect you, your family and your home from harm.  Trees are so important to the stability and health of our soil structure, the protection of our wildlife, the quality of the air we breath, and our general wellbeing.  Large trees do not need to be a source of fear. We CAN live among them, with a sense of security that they can survive in harmony with Mother Nature.

Soil health is critical

Landscape design

Rehydrating a landscape

Although disappointing to lose a lawn to drought, grass can be replanted and bounce back in a season. The effects can be much more severe for a tree, however, lasting several years. If a tree is destroyed by drought it can take decades for a replacement to grow to the same size. Read more...


Large Tree Planting

Large tree planting is generally offered by a small number of tree service companies.  It takes acute horticultural knowledge and a strong understanding of the soil conditions to give this large investment the best chance for survival. First, we make sure that the right plant is being chosen for the right place.  Nothing can hinder the long term success of a tree like planting it in conditions not meant to support it.  Next, selecting a healthy tree and properly preparing it for planting is critical.  After settling the tree into its location, attentive aftercare - particularly for the first few years - helps the tree acclimate and thrive in its new surroundings.  Our team of plant health care experts see to it that your investment is protected by setting up a proper after-care plan.
