Making sure your trees get the care and attention they need enhances the exterior of your home, raises your property value, and contributes to the overall beauty of your neighborhood. The International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) certified team at West Valley Arborists offers comprehensive tree care services in Livermore, San Jose and the Bay Area. Tree care is not a one-size-fits-all service. Perhaps you want to preserve a historic tree, diagnose diseases or insects, plant new trees, or remove trees after Mother Nature caused some damage. In any case, our skilled team can provide you with tree care needs tailored to your specific situation.
The following are some examples of
tree care services we can provide for you:
Fertilization & Deep Root Feeding
When you have young trees in your yard, they might need fertilizer. Poor soil, insects, and disease can cause your trees to be unhealthy. A certified arborist from West Valley Arborists will diagnose any issues with your trees and ensure you have the proper soil for healthy growth. Mature trees might suffer from deep root issues because they were initially planted too deep. Our team can evaluate mature trees and put together a deep root feeding solution if applicable.
Whether young or mature, your trees will need pruning for a variety of reasons, including removing dead or dying branches. The aim of most pruning is to control size, which also improves structure and safety. Storm damage might cause a need for pruning and flowering trees will produce more buds when pruned properly. Our team has several pruning techniques based on your individual situation; we can clean, raise the crown of the tree, thin secondary branches from the tree. We also prune hedges to keep them shapely and beautiful.
When storm damage occurs, you may need to remove a fallen tree, but other hazards also require tree removal. Trees which are too close to a structure or power lines might have to be permanently removed, or transplanted if possible. Removing a tree which has not fallen is not a easy decision and it’s unsafe for the average person. Removing a tree, dead or alive, might result in environmental consequences, too. Hiring a certified arborist to evaluate the situation will ensure you make the right decision.
Tree Cabling & Bracing
In some cases, trees might require support, especially in San Jose, where winds can be high. Cabling and bracing prevents young trees from being uprooted or leaning until their roots have had a chance to grow. Once the roots develop and stabilize, the tree will no longer need the support. DIYers can easily cable or brace a tree too tightly, restricting natural growth. The team at West Valley Arborists can support your tree so it grows for years to come.
Homeowners often decide to allow a tree stump to decay into the surrounding ground area, but this isn’t always the best solution. If you want to landscape an area with stumps or intend to plant another tree, you will need to have the stump removed by a professional service. Stump removal includes grinding the stump with a machine which turns the stump into small chips. We serve Livermore, San Jose and the Greater Bay Area!
