What are the benefits of tree care?

Well-cared for trees provide many benefits:

  • Trees act like air filters. They clean the air of odors and pollutants, and filter particulates like smoke and dust out of the air.
  • Trees help you conserve energy. They provide shade and act as wind screens, so you need less energy to both heat and cool your home, which saves money.
  • Trees help you save water. Their shade allows for less water to evaporate from your lawn in the summer, which means you need to water the lawn less often.
  • Trees are beautiful. They create pleasant scenery, and will vastly improve the look of your property – especially if they’re blocking a less than scenic view!
  • Trees increase property value. Because of all of these benefits, trees make a property more desirable – but only if these trees are well-cared for, which is why it’s so important to hire professional arborists to look after your trees.

Why do I need an arborist?

Arborists are specialists in tree care. We are trained and equipped to evaluate a tree’s needs and provide it with everything it requires to grow and flourish. Proper tree care is the difference between attractive trees that add value to your property and a poorly maintained tree that is a danger and liability. Additionally, dealing with large trees can be dangerous work, both in terms of falls from high in the tree when pruning or removing branches, and falling branches that can damage property or cause injuries. Arborists are trained to take all the proper precautions, and can minimize the risks. Please feel free to browse our services and see how we can help you.

Stump Removal / Grinding

Do you have an unsightly stump on your property that you would like to get rid of? We are a complete stump removal service, here to help the people of St. Charles clear the stumps from their yards as efficiently as possible.

Why remove a stump?

Here are some of the main reasons why people remove stumps from their property:

Important for cities and municipalities- stumps near roads and sidewalks are removed to prevent future damage. The root structure of trees can continue to grow even after the trunk and branches have been removed and this can lead to cracked and broken sidewalks and paved surfaces. The driveway of your home is a likely candidate for this problem unless the stump is removed.
Many insects and tree diseases love tree stumps. By having a tree stump you are heightening the risk of the infestations or tree diseases spreading throughout your property.

If you have children, tree stumps can be a hazard. Tree stumps are quite hard and if a child falls onto it instead of grass they could be severely injured. Furthermore, tree stumps are very prone to growing moss and becoming slippery which creates another potential hazard.

If left alone it is quite possible that the tree will grow back. Felled trees often sprout saplings on the stump and though it will take quite a while for the tree to grow back completely, it is still counterproductive.

Why not to pull out tree stumps?

Many people believe that they can remove the tree stump by connecting it to their truck and then just yanking it out. This can work but there are hazards which make it not recommended. First, most trees have extensive root systems so the only thing you will manage to do with your vehicle is break the chain or harm the truck. Let’s say you do get quite a bit of leverage and it starts to work. Do you know how far the roots go? Are the roots intertwined with other root systems? Or worse, are you sure that the roots are nowhere near any utility lines?

Tree Trimming & Removal

When we have trees around our homes, it is sometimes necessary to trim them back or even remove a tree in order to prevent property damage. However, for large trees, this kind of maintenance can be very dangerous, as falling branches are heavy and sometimes unpredictable. If there is a tree on your property that needs trimming or removal, contact us today and let the professionals handle it.

Our highly experienced arborists have years of experience in safely trimming and removing branches and trees. Difficult removals may require cranes and a bucket truck to avoid damage to your home, power lines, or other surroundings.

Why do I need to remove my tree?

There can be any number of things that will make it necessary to remove a tree from your property. From disease, to storm damage, to simply growing too close to your house or to power lines, trees that are damaged or growing in the wrong place pose an extreme danger to both you and your property. If you suspect that a tree on your property is dangerous, contact Tree Cutting By Teron Featuring Curious Joe and we will evaluate whether it needs to be trimmed or removed, and determine the safest way to remove it.

Do I need a permit to remove a tree from my property?

It depends on the laws of the municipality, but generally, yes. Many towns and cities have bylaws requiring permission to remove trees of a certain size, because they enhance property values. However, most municipalities make exceptions for dead, dying, or imminently hazardous trees. If you are unsure about the status of the tree on your property, it is best to check your local laws.

Tree Pruning

Tree pruning is much more important than most people realize. Skilful pruning will improve the aesthetic appeal of your trees, but is also necessary for maintaining their health and structural integrity. It has been proven that trees that are properly pruned live longer. Pruning is important because it spaces out the tree’s branches, allowing more air to circulate and helping to prevent the wind from tearing branches off. This allows the tree to continue growing in a healthy manner.

There is no simpler way to enhance the beauty and elegance of a piece of property than to plant trees. Purchasing trees for your property is an investment in the future, as they only become more beautiful and impressive over time as they grow and age, and you will be enjoying them for years to come. However, the first step is to make sure that they are planted well so that they will be healthy and have the chance to grow. That’s where Tree Cutting By Teron Featuring Curious Joe comes in.

Tree Health / Pest and Disease Management

Why should I remove a tree?

Unfortunately, sometimes it’s necessary to remove a tree from your property. The tree may be dead or dying, or in the case of an emergency, it may have suffered a serious wound that it cannot recover from. You should have a professional arborist assess the tree to determine whether it can survive the damage that has been done to it.

Why do I need an arborist to remove my tree?

If a storm has damaged your tree, but it’s still standing you need to get an arborist to look at it right away if you hope to save it. Losing a branch exposes a tree to infection and parasites that can further damage or even kill it. It is important for an arborist to assess and treat the tree if you want to save it, and arborists have the equipment and expertise to safely remove the tree if it cannot be saved.
