The work of an Arborist involves a wide range of functions, and not all Arborists do every activity in the spectrum. Some Arborists work mostly around utilities, ensuring cables and trees do not conflict. Other Arborists give evidence in legal situations, write reports, or work as consultants. Tampa Tree Service Arborists are extremely "hands on", being involved in all physical aspects of the work. Their work can involve large, complicated trees, young trees, a few trees on a small lot, or heavily wooded acres on a Commercial or Residential site.  They have years of training, experience, and knowledge of their craft. Safety and efficiency in the tree and around trees is also of the utmost importance. As you can imagine, quite a few aspects of Tree Care can be extremely dangerous.

Our Tampa Tree Service Arborists  find solutions for situations that  may seem very formidable. For instance, in urban areas trees are severely disadvantaged. Their natural setting is in a forest, where all the nutritional and ecological functions occur in that setting, not needing help from humans, as a rule. The Urban tree has sidewalks, driveways, structures, overhead wires, roads, lawns, and other obstructions to its survival. Within a city or neighborhood blocks, you are likely to see trees struggling to catch their needed share of nutrients and water. Those cracked sidewalks and large roots coming from the ground are the trees' attempt to "breathe" and get food to send through the rest of the tree for survival, as one example of the situations trees need help with. Trees are reliant on us as we are on them, providing us with oxygen they expel and absorbing carbon dioxide. Out of their natural setting, they need people to ensure they are first, planted in the optimum location, have sufficient room to branch out and grow, fight off diseases and insect infestations. Failure to maintain and improve the health of your trees is a loss environmentally, and will decrease value of a property.

Our Estimator will thoroughly examine your trees, ascertaining what the problem(s) are , and how best to resolve them in order get your trees back to vigorous health.  If damage is too severe, removing the the tree is occasionally the best course. This action is sometimes necessary to protect other trees, as diseases can be spread through the complex tree root system.
A tree may also need to be eradicated if it:
  • Is crowding out or harming other trees
  • is dead or dying
  • is extremely hazardous for various reasons
  • is causing an obstruction which is not able to be helped through trimming
  • is being replaced by a species more suited to the area

Peach tree with problems

Dead citrus
This beautiful, mature tree pictured here is having its magnificent limbs protected by the Cabling process. These cables are strategically located through vulnerable areas of the tree. Limbs are given strength to resist breakage, avoid obstructing anything,and are better equipped for onslaughts of heavy, sustained winds. Cabling allows high winds to move freely through the tree, rather than buffet it constantly head on. Arborists use this safe, effective process on trees that are historic, or  a city group or single family, depending on the circumstance, simply want it to be preserved for all to enjoy the extreme, remarkable beautiful of these types of trees.

Tree Cabling

These are two prime examples of the struggle trees have in urban and suburban environments. Paved roads, concrete sidewalks and retaining walls are nice features of modern living we rely on and expect. Watch any western, medieval, or any pre-pavement show and how thankful we are not to have to deal with the mud, unsanitary conditions, and just plain aggravation of walking and travel in earlier times. We all love the amenities of modern life, but we all love and value our trees as well. Both are expensive to replace and add substantial value to our home or business property. So, how can this dilemma be reconciled?
Trees must have soil that is loose enough and moist enough to sustain its growth and health. Roots of a tree are going to push through soil as any plant does while growing. As the soil is being contracted and shoved against by relentless roots with no where else to go, cracks and breakage of the walks and also roadways are inevitable to occur and costly to repair. Buttress roots support the tree and are incredibly strong-causing much severe damage. Growing roots continue on their struggle to get air and nutrients by heading to cracks in sidewalks which is why they are commonly seen coming through areas where the things they need are the most accessible.
At this point, some action must be taken. An Arborist with Tampa Tree Service is very familiar with this situation.  As with all aspects of Tree Care, no one solution solves every problem. For instance, what is the condition of the tree whose roots are causing the problem? If the tree is not in good condition, it will only get worse and become even more dangerous. In this instance, Tree Removal is likely advised. Then the sidewalk can be replaced or repaired.
Some techniques to try to have the tree and sidewalk co-exist are used successfully in the situation. Your Estimator will present the best options during your Free Assessment. If you are wanting to have some new trees planted, our Arborists possess invaluable advice on what type trees, where they should be placed, and how much space they require when mature. Naturally avoiding the tree-structure problem is the best way to go. Tampa Tree Service Arborists will explain the trees most suited to your lawn size and layout, giving your trees the most room for future growth unhampered by concrete, pavement, etc. Call the Arborists who care and   have the knowledge, experience, and dedication to transform and boost your trees and shrubbery to their most robust, beautiful condition ever!
