Thinning an overgrown canopy to prevent a sail effect during high winds.
Weight reduction to prevent limb loss due to water weight and wind force.
Mulching and fertilization (as needed) to encourage proper root growth on very young trees.
Removal of dead and dying trees. Dead or nearly dead trees are bowling pins to an El Nino storm.
Earlier this year we experienced a forecasted storm. Many homeowners tried to engage a tree company at the last minute without much success. Now is the time. Don't pay emergency rates for something that could have been prevented during fair weather. Once a tree becomes imbalanced, that's it. A trim or weight reduction could save you thousands of dollars. That's not an exaggeration. Just prior to storms, most reputable tree companies will be either preparing commercial properties or doing last minute work for previously scheduled residential clients. At Bud's we staff an emergency crew or two depending on the forecast. But even then we prioritize for life threatening, home endangering work. In other words, we get the tree on the ground and move on, often finishing up after the storm. When sending a climber into an unstable tree during high wind, rain, and darkness, we pay them more. Likewise the ground crew. It's an overtime that can kill or maim even the safest workers. Obviously, the customer pays for that. I would much prefer to make less money and have our clients spend less money to the welfare of all involved. If you're not sure what your tree needs, call us. Our estimators often tell people good news--the tree doesn't require work. When preventative or correction action is needed, we can save you money through advanced scheduling among other things. Since our estimator visits are free, you have nothing to lose. Please give some thought to El Nino while the skies are still blue and let's have a safe winter.
