Trees in urban areas do not have the advantages that forest trees have. There is very little organic recycling because leaves and other organics are raked up and disposed of. A proactive approach must be taken when dealing with urban trees. We suggest regular watering with a soaking hose, proper tree mulching and tree fertilizing.

Weed wackers and lawn mowers cause irreversible damage to tree trunks and can decrease life expectancy. We suggest caution when mowing around trees or contracting a professional to properly mow your yard.

Back fill over root systems will kill trees and the use of heavy equipment on root systems will adversely effect the health of trees. We suggest getting a certified arborist’s advice before construction begins, or properly treating damages already occurred by proper pruning or cabling, wound dressing and proper mulching and watering.

Trees need regular maintenance just like lawns to keep them healthy. Pruning every 2-4 years, depending on tree species, can greatly extend your tree’s life. It not only removes hazardous dead limbs but also eliminates crossing & rubbing branches thus opening the canopy so wind & snow can filter through.

Aphids are small and pearl shaped. An infestation can cause yellow discoloration and defoliation, as well as leave a sticky residue on the property.

Spruce Bark Beetles have been high for several years now killing a lot of the spruce trees in Anchorage. Tall Trees offers a preventative spray in the Spring effectively preventing beetles from infesting those trees for up to 2 years. Call our office for current pricing.
