Our Gates Mills tree services

Tree Trimming and Pruning

Tree pruning is essential to maintaining tree health on your property. Trees often grow awkwardly or become too dense with branches and foliage. This additional weight or instability can make trees dangerous during storms where wind or snow, and ice can cause limbs to break off and fall.

Besides avoiding costly storm damage clean-up, regular pruning can improve the health and beauty of your trees, extending their lifespans and preventing disease. Benefits of regular tree trimming include:

  • Removing dead or dying branches that steal a tree’s nutrients from healthy structures
  • Thinning the canopy for improved airflow and to create more space for new growth
  • Cropping the canopy to reduce the overall size of the tree
  • Removing low-hanging branches that obstruct or rub buildings, walkways, and power lines

In addition to trimming, we can also identify weak limbs or improperly structured branches and use cabling and bracing to shape their growth for better structural support and stability.


Tick and Mosquito Control

We offer a six-month mosquito and tick control program. Each application offers four weeks of control to kill ticks, fleas, mosquitos, and other pests on contact, plus repelling new individuals for 28-30 days. Our all-natural formula relies on cedar and peppermint oils that pose “little to no risk” of affecting you, your pets, or the environment.

We begin our yard pest control program in May and apply treatments each month through the warmer months of the summer and fall.

Tree Health Management

Our TCIA Accredited professionals will inspect your trees to find existing problems. We will perform soil tests, insect pest identification, and identification of structural weaknesses. We can then develop a tree health management plan for tree and shrub fertilization, disease treatment, disease prevention, and emergency tree removal for dead or dying trees.

We have a large, old buckeye tree and an old lilac bush in our backyard. Both were seriously damaged in a severe summer storm. Independent Tree was recommended by our landscaper. They arrived on time, assessed the damage, and recommended a course of action. When they returned, they quickly and efficiently trimmed and pruned where needed and fed the tree & bush. A year later, both were thriving.

Insect Pest Prevention and Treatment

If your trees and plants are showing signs of stress or damage, it could be any of several pests common in Northeast Ohio. We can identify pests like:

After insect pest identification, we can use targeted organic and all-natural treatments to interrupt the reproductive cycle of these pests.

Disease Treatment and Prevention

When we inspect your trees, we’ll also look for signs of diseases, wilt, and blights. We can then plan a schedule for appropriate disease treatment to address any active infections, as well as develop a disease prevention plan to contain the disease and prevent it from spreading to healthy trees on your property.


Tree & Shrub Fertilization

Healthy trees and shrubs start with good soil. We’ll perform soil tests to measure your soil’s quality and nutritional balance for the trees and shrubs in your yard. We can then develop a custom fertilizer formula to apply to your tree and shrub roots, as well as adjust your soil density with amendments.

If your trees don’t have the right root structure to benefit immediately from tree and shrub fertilization, we can apply a plant growth regulator treatment. This formula encourages the growth of fine, hairlike roots responsible for absorbing water and nutrients from the soil.

Tree Removal & Stump Grinding

We can’t always save every tree. Sometimes a tree is already dead or too far gone to recover. In these cases, we offer tree removal and stump grinding. We also offer tree removal with a crane for large trees or for removing storm-damaged trees that have been uprooted. After removing dead, dying, or damaged trees, we offer stump grinding to remove live stumps and prevent infection, infestation, or regrowth.
