Frequently Asked Question From Customers

How can I get a consultation?
Click any of the pretty green buttons on the page above, or click here to schedule a consultation. Just give us a call, and after we chat, we'll be out to assess your property at the earliest opportunity.
How do I know when my tree needs to be pruned?
Tree pruning is often dependent on the species, but generally, if you notice dead, diseased, or damaged branches, it may be time for pruning. Overgrowth and encroachment on buildings or utility lines is another reason. A professional arborist can assess and advise on optimal pruning time.
What are the signs of disease or pests in my trees, and what should I do if I spot them?
Signs of disease or pests can vary. Look for discoloration, spots or blotches on leaves, abnormal leaf drop, wilting, bark changes, or unseasonal flowering. If you spot them, call an arborist to identify the problem and suggest treatment.
When is the best time of the year to trim my trees?
Pruning time can depend on the tree species and the purpose of pruning. Generally, late winter or early spring is ideal as trees are dormant, which minimizes stress and pest infestation. However, certain species may require different timing. Some flowering trees should be pruned right after they finish blooming to maximize flower production the following year.
How often should I have my trees inspected?
Tree inspections should be conducted at least once a year to ensure they're in good health. If your trees are older or have been affected by disease or pests in the past, they may need more frequent inspections, possibly every 6 months. An arborist can monitor your trees for signs of disease or infestation and make recommendations for care.
Why would a tree need to be removed?
Tree removal is usually the last resort when dealing with tree health issues. Trees may need to be removed if they are dead, if they're infested with an incurable disease, if they have suffered irreparable storm damage, or if they pose a danger to nearby structures. Sometimes, trees need to be removed for construction or landscaping purposes. Before any removal, a professional arborist should evaluate the tree and exhaust all other potential treatment options.
What can I do to keep my trees healthy?
Maintaining tree health involves a combination of proper watering, mulching to protect roots and retain soil moisture, and using appropriate fertilizers to supply nutrients. Additionally, proper pruning can help prevent disease and pest issues. Regular inspections from a professional arborist can also help identify potential issues early, before they become significant problems.
What kind of equipment do you use, and how does it affect my property?
At Strobert, we use a variety of specialized equipment including chainsaws, pole saws, tree chippers, stump grinders, and aerial lifts or bucket trucks for tall trees. Our team is highly trained in the use of this equipment to ensure safety and efficiency. We use protective barriers when needed to minimize any potential damage to your property, and always conduct a thorough cleanup as the last step in the job.
How can I identify a hazardous tree and what steps should I take?
A hazardous tree often shows signs of structural weakness like dead or hanging branches, decayed or hollow sections, cracks in the trunk, severe leaning, or root problems. If you spot these signs, contact a professional arborist immediately.
Can a sick tree be saved, or does it always need to be removed?
Whether a sick tree needs to be removed often depends on the type and extent of the disease, and the overall health and value of the tree. Some diseases can be managed through pruning, treatment, or changes in care practices, allowing the tree to recover. A professional arborist can assess the tree, diagnose the disease, and provide a recommendation for treatment or removal.
What does it mean when the leaves of my tree are discolored or wilting?
Leaf discoloration or wilting could indicate several issues like nutrient deficiency, pests, disease, or environmental stress. Professional diagnosis is important for proper treatment, which might include changes in care or environment, and treatment for pests or disease.
How long does it typically take to remove a tree?
The time it takes to remove a tree can vary greatly depending on the size of the tree, its location, its health and structural stability, and access limitations. A small, accessible tree might be removed in an hour or two, while a large, complex removal in a confined space can take a full day or more. Every tree is unique, and an on-site estimate is the best way to determine the time required.
What are the typical signs of a tree in stress?
Signs of tree stress can include wilting or discolored leaves, early leaf drop, reduced growth, abnormal leaf size, and changes in bark texture or color. These symptoms can be caused by a variety of factors, including pests, disease, water stress, nutrient deficiencies, temperature extremes, pollution, or physical damage. A professional arborist can diagnose the cause of stress and recommend appropriate treatments.
Are you and your team certified arborists? What does that mean exactly?
Certified arborists have passed comprehensive exams covering all aspects of tree care, maintain their certification through ongoing education, and adhere to a Code of Ethics, ensuring knowledgeable and professional service.
Is your tree service insured? What does that coverage entail?
Yes, we are fully insured, which covers any damage to your property during our services, and provides worker's compensation in case of any worker injuries.
What should I look for when hiring a professional arborist or tree service?
When hiring a professional arborist or tree service, look for proof of certification, insurance, and business licensing. Check references and reviews for quality of work. The arborist should conduct a thorough on-site inspection before providing a written estimate. They should be knowledgeable, professional, and willing to answer all your questions. It can also be helpful to verify their standing with professional organizations such as the International Society of Arboriculture or the Tree Care Industry Association.
How much does it cost to have a tree pruned or removed?
The cost of tree services varies depending on the specific task. For instance, tree removal is typically more expensive than pruning. Factors influencing cost include the size and location of the tree, the tree's health and stability, and any access limitations. Other potential costs include stump grinding or wood chipping. It's always best to get a written estimate before work begins.
What are the risks if I try to prune or remove a tree myself?
DIY tree work can be dangerous due to falling branches, improper equipment use, and potential damage to property. Hiring a professional ensures the job is done safely and correctly, protecting you, your tree, and your property.
How do you ensure the safety of my property and your workers when removing a tree?
We ensure safety by adhering to the industry's best practices, which include using appropriate safety equipment, like helmets, safety glasses, gloves, and safety harnesses when working at heights. We set up safety barriers when necessary to protect people and property in the work area. We also conduct a job hazard analysis before starting work to identify any potential risks and take appropriate measures to manage them.
What happens to the wood and debris after you prune or remove a tree?
After pruning or removal, the wood and other debris are typically chipped on-site into mulch, which can be used in your landscape or removed from the property. Larger pieces of wood can often be cut into firewood-sized lengths for your use or removed as well. We strive to leave your property clean and tidy.
How can I tell if my tree has been damaged by a storm, and what should I do?
Signs of storm damage to a tree can include broken or hanging branches, split trunks, a shift in the tree's lean, or partial or complete uprooting. After a storm, ensure safety by keeping a distance from the damaged tree, especially if there are hanging branches or if the tree is near utility lines. Contact a professional arborist to assess the damage and determine the best course of action, which could include pruning, cabling, or tree removal.
