Tree Care

Trees are often the most valuable component of your landscape investment and deserve the care of an experienced arborist. Properly maintained trees with correct branch structure and form add a plethora of direct benefits including moderating climate, improving air quality, conserving water, and harboring wildlife.

Hunter Landscape�s specialty tree care division, Earthwise Arborists, provides a full array of services including tree inspections and appraisals; tree thinning, reduction, cleaning, restoration, removal, stump grinding, line clearing, and 24-hour emergency service.

The company�s four operational managers hold ISA Certified Arborist designations, and are educated in the latest advances in arboricultural best practices and employee safety. As tree care professionals, we guarantee that all of our tree care services conform to ANSI A300 tree pruning standards.

Our certified arborists can provide detailed tree maintenance programs, prepare arborist reports for tree health and risk assessments, and provide written guidelines for the protection and preservation of trees in all types of construction settings.

Earthwise Arborists recommends a proactive approach to tree care that emphasizes the development of proper tree structure and the removal of broken, dead, dying and damaged branches to minimize potential tree hazards and keep your trees healthy, strong, and beautiful.

Pruning and Maintenance

Saving money by hiring the lowest bidder, often results in indiscriminant cutting or �topping� of trees. This practice destroys the natural form of the tree and leads to branch dieback and decay. Topping activates latent buds, forcing the rapid growth of multiple weakly attached shoots just below each cut. These new shoots greatly increase the risk of potential liability due to branch failure.

When pruning, each cut has the potential to change the future growth of a tree so an understanding of how the tree will respond is very important. Improper pruning can cause damage that remains for the life of the tree, thus, no branch should be removed without a reason, and no more than 25% of the canopy should be removed in any one year.

Acceptable reasons to prune trees include improving tree structure and form, removing dead, weak, or diseased limbs that pose a hazard, increasing light penetration, and providing clearance for wires, buildings and pedestrians.

Earthwise Arborists maintains four Certified Arborists on staff. Employees continually receive training and assessments to ensure that all tree care conforms to American National Standards Institute (ANSI) A300 standards which promote the health and proper structure of trees.

Tree Removal

Trees offer a wide range of benefits to the environment and provide tremendous beauty, however, there are circumstances when tree removal must be considered. An arborist can help decide whether a tree should ultimately be removed or whether a viable alternative exists.

Tree removal is recommended when a tree has been improperly maintained and is dead, dying, or shows signs of decay. Sometimes, the wrong tree was selected for the site and the tree has outgrown its usefulness, or the tree is causing a hazard that is impossible to correct through pruning.

Our tree care professionals possess both the skill and the knowledge to evaluate and safely, efficiently, remove any tree no matter the size or location.

We comply with American National Standards Institute�s ANSI Z133.1 safety standards for tree care operations, and are fully insured for Workmans Compensation, General Liability, and Automobile Insurance for the protection of your property and the safety of our crews.

Tree Health and Management

Diagnosing tree problems requires a combination of knowledge, experience, and keen observation. Identifying the insect or disease that may be visible on the affected tree is not enough. Trees that die or decline usually are suffering from a combination of stress factors. Often, one or more less obvious underlying disorders, induces stress upon the tree. The underlying disorder compromises the tree�s health, reducing its defenses, making it a suitable host for insects and disease.

Tree stress is often caused by such things as poor water management, compacted soil, pollution damage, chemical or mechanical injury, and competition with other trees for sunlight and available soil nutrients.

Our experienced arborists can examine the entire tree from root tips to tree top and recommend a course of action to restore the affected tree to a healthy condition.

Emergency Services

Earthwise Arborists recommends a proactive approach to tree care. Our annual tree care program emphasizes the development of proper tree structure, and the removal of broken, dead, dying, or damaged branches. This greatly reduces the potential for structural failure with maturity.

Even with the best of care, trees can and do fail. Weather bursts, Santa Ana winds, auto accidents, and undetected defects may cause limbs or entire trees to fall, often landing on cars, homes or other structures.

Storm damaged limbs and trees can be dangerous to remove or trim. If an emergency situation should occur, our crews are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to safely remedy the situation, reducing further risk of damage to property.
