Removals can be done for several reasons:
Often trees out grow the area they are planted in and become too large
Storm damaged trees
Dead, dying, and diseased trees
Trees with cracks in the trunk or crotch
Pruning/Trimming can be done for several reasons:
Removal of deadwood
Removal of hazardous branches
Shaping and thinning for light and wind filtration
Raising of the lower branches
Stump grinding is done to remove the last bit of the stump. Otherwise the stump is cut as close to the ground as possible (usually within 2 inches). Stumps are ground 6-10 inches below the ground. With the stump removed and some top soil applied grass can now be grown where the stump used to be. Check out the videos section to see our Carlton SP7015 grinding a large spruce stump.
Trees with co-dominant stems may require the installation of a cable to help preserve the structure of the tree and to help prevent the stems from separating. Dynamic rope cables allow the tree to continue to grow, while providing low oscillation in the wind to help prevent branch breakage.
Braces are installed when there is a crack present between the two stems, a large drill is used to bore through the tree and a threaded rod is installed to brace the crack.
When possible we like to structurally prune one or both of the codominant stems.
We are now planting trees!!! We plant 10, 15, 20, 25 gallon container trees. Planting prices include the tree, mulch, and staking if required. Give us a call for some ideas on great trees to plant in Manitoba.
Trees that are not doing well can sometimes be helped along by fertilizing. We use a slow release liquid fertilizer that is applied with a deep root injector needle. Fertilizing can be done in the spring or fall.
Emerald Ash Borer has arrived in Winnipeg. We will be using Treeazin injections to save ash trees. Treatments take place in early summer and last for two years. Timberland Tree Service can work with home owner's and property managers to come up with a management plan including, treatments, removals, and replacement of ash trees. Check out our learning centre for more information on the Emerald Ash Borer and Treeazin.
