Crane Work

Cranes are undoubtedly well integrated into arboricultural practice. In certain aboricultural operations, the use of a crane is needed and/or recommended. We at Fergusons Tree Care try to keep the cost down for our clients as much as possible. There are many facts to consider which determines wheather a crane will be needed on a job. We look at the surroundings which can not be moved such as other trees, building structures, above ground wiring, as well as the safety of human lives *See the "Photos" tab for more information as well as photos.

Deadwooding

Deadwooding is essentially the removal of all dead, dying, broken or diseased branches from the tree. This process is used to prevent any hazards that may be caused by falling dead branches to people or property. Deadwooding also increases the amount of light and air circulation within the canopy of the tree, reducing and/or omitting the risk of pests and disease and improving the overall health and beauty of the tree.

Your tree might require Deadwooding if:

» Pests, disease or fungi growing on dead or dying branches.
» Dead branches are overhanging buildings, roads, pathways or light posts, which could be a
security issue and/or hazzard.
» The tree(s) branches have died during storms or drought.
» The tree(s) consists of a lots of dead/dying branches that "clogs" the canopy of the tree.

Deadwood is harmful to a tree’s health and growth as it is a breeding ground for insects, fungus and disease. It is natural for tree’s branches to die back, especially during drought or storms. It is important to remove the deadwooding instead of letting the tree shed it's dead wood naturally which could be a liability.

Limb Raising/ Pruning

Pruning for health (Figure 1) involves removing diseased or insect-infested wood, thinning the crown to increase airflow and reduce some pest problems, and removing crossing and rubbing branches. Pruning can best be used to encourage trees to develop a strong structure and reduce the likelihood of damage during severe weather. Removing broken or damaged limbs encourage wound closure. Pruning for safety (Figure 2), is a proceedure that should not be taken lightly. This must be done for to prevent damage to propery and people. In some cases, branches and/or limbs could interfer with light pole and obstruct the lighting around buildings.

Prune for aesthetics (Figure 3)

Pruning for aesthetics (Figure 3) involves enhancing the natural form and character of trees or stimulating flower production. Pruning for form can be especially important on open-grown trees that do very little self-pruning. All woody plants shed branches in response to shading and competition. Small branches that were once strong could become weak due to wind, heavy rain, and accumulation of snow and ice, resulting in needing to be removed. Branches removed by such natural forces often result in large, ragged wounds that rarely seal. Pruning as a cultural practice can be used to supplement or replace these natural processes and increase the strength and longevity of trees. Producing a strong structure should be the emphasis when pruning young trees. As trees mature, the aim of pruning will shift to maintaining tree structure, form, health and appearance. Proper pruning cuts are made at the shoulder, the point at which one branch or twig attaches to another. In the spring of the year growth begins at buds, and twigs grow until a new ones are formed.

Stump Grinding

A stump grinder or stump cutter is a power tool or equipment attachment that removes tree stumps by means of a rotating cutting disk that chips away the wood. Homeowners and businesses who have had a tree cut down on their property often find themselves with the left behind tree stump to contend with. Stumps left behind from tree cutting can be variously described as unsightly, taking up valuable gardening space, and even hazardous. There are various ways to deal with tree stumps depending on how quickly you want the stump removed.

Nature
Simply covering the stump with soil will eventually lead to the stump's decay. Once it has rotted enough it can usually be removed with an axe and/or shovel. Unfortunately depending on the size of the stump this process could take many months or even years and be a "eye sore".

Nature Accelerated
Various commercial products can be applied to a stump to accelerate the decay process. They are generally applied by drilling holes in the stump and pouring a liquid into the holes. According to manufacturers, after 8-12 weeks the stump should be soft enough for removal by burning. In many urban and suburban areas burning stumps is not allowed. Be sure to check local codes before pursuing this method.

Stump Grinding
If you want this "eye sore" to be removed and in most cases not even notice a tree existed there, is no better method than a stump grinder. A stump grinders has a high-speed disk with specially designed teeth that grind the stump and underground roots into small chips. Typically the chips can either be left for the use elsewhere or hauled away for in some cases and extra fee.
