We have finally gotten some rain in the valley. The saturation point has apparently been reached with a remarkable number of home owners reporting falling trees. The soil isn't holding the roots. Everyone with a large tree in reach of their home needs to pay attention for rising roots or increased lean angle. We'll likely have a few weeks of falling trees until the earth processes the water and the rains drops off.
Stumps grinding can be done almost anywhere provided the stump grinder can fit through gates and passageways, the stump is not surrounded by hardscape, and safety concerns can be addressed. Unfortunately, there are many places a stump grinder can't reach. In those cases, a licensed chemical applicator may be able to destroy the stump with chemical injections. Obviously the rotting process takes time and there are concerns about which treatments can be used around certain plant life but a licensed arboriculture applicator will be able to assess that for each client.
If you have a fireplace consider saving some money on tree work by agreeing to keep fireplace sized wood. Tree companies must pay to have wood debris processed. So the less wood they have to handle the less they will charge. Also, getting firewood early in the year allows the wood to naturally dry before next winter. Save money twice by reducing the cost of a tree removal and not having to buy expensive dry firewood next fall.
Bud's Tree Service has now been in business for 48 years. We're still growing and that is largely due to word-of-mouth advertising from our satisfied customers. Bud knew how to treat customers; many of you have been with us for a very long time. Thank you.
