Tree Trimming and Pruning

Correctly trimming a tree can improve its health and appearance, even making it more resistant to disease or pests. Our tree care professionals can help to shape and maintain the trees on your property with tree pruning combined with cabling and bracing to support weaker limbs.

There are several reasons to prune your trees, including:

  • Emergency tree service to remove storm-damaged branches that could fall and damage property or injure someone
  • Disease treatment to remove infected branches and trim back to healthy wood
  • Reducing the size and density of the tree canopy to allow for more light penetration and air circulation between the branches
  • Reducing the spread and height of a tree rubbing on a roof, interfering with power lines, or blocking sidewalks, driveways, or roadways
  • Controlling the growth pattern of a tree to direct it away from buildings and walkways

We can plan tree trimming to help prevent emergency tree removal after a storm by removing heavy limbs that could break during high winds or under heavy snow and ice. Removing storm-damaged trees during storm-damage clean-up is much costlier and more time-consuming than preparing before a storm with regular tree pruning.

Tree Health Management

We offer comprehensive tree health management plans to protect trees from insects, diseases, fungi, and other environmental stressors using organic, low-impact plant health care insect treatment and disease prevention formulas.

Insect Pest Prevention and Treatment

If you notice something wrong with your trees or shrubs, one of our arborists can help with insect pest identification to determine which pest could be causing the issue.

In Northeast Ohio, common pests include:

  • Emerald ash borers
  • Leaf miners
  • Lace bugs
  • Viburnum leaf beetles
  • Bagworms
  • Spider mites
  • Scale insects
  • White pine weevils
  • Bronze birch borers
  • Aphids
  • Japanese beetles

We can identify risks to your trees and develop a plan to treat and prevent only the insects on your property, so we don’t over-spray. Despite that we use organic treatments, over-spraying can harm other trees and plants in your yard or help insects and diseases build a resistance to certain compounds. We want to target only those issues of concern for each client.

Independent Tree came out last fall to trim my trees. They did a great job and left my yard looking better than when they arrived. This spring, the rain-heavy branches were blocking my satellite reception. Alan came back, trimmed the interfering branches, and in minutes my problem was solved. Thanks, Independent Tree and Alan Kraus!

Disease Treatment and Prevention

During our inspection, we’ll look for signs of active infection in your trees. Identification is the first step to disease prevention for other trees on your property and disease treatment for affected trees. Common diseases that affect trees in Northeast Ohio include:

  • Beech leaf disease
  • Dutch elm disease
  • Fireblight
  • Oak wilt

The timing of applications of pest treatments, disease treatments, disease prevention measures, and fertilizer is important to get the best effectiveness from sprays, nutrients, and other applications.

Tree & Shrub Fertilization

Tree and shrub fertilization requires soil tests to determine which nutrients your plants need, as well as to prevent the over-application of one nutrient like nitrogen or phosphorus.
We also offer plant growth regulator treatment to encourage the development of fine roots that increase nutrient and water absorption.

Mosquito & Tick Control

Tick and mosquito control is essential in Northeast Ohio. Both carry diseases that can affect you, your children, and your pets. Our organic sprays help to eliminate mosquitoes, ticks, fleas, and other annoying and harmful insects.

Tree Removal & Stump Grinding

If we can’t help you save a tree, or you have an oak tree infected with oak wilt, we offer professional tree removal or large tree removal with a crane. We also offer stump grinding as an add-on service to prevent a trip hazard in your yard. Stumps can attract pests and diseases that could spread to the rest of your trees.
