Our Shaker Heights Tree Services

Tree Trimming and Pruning

For beautiful and healthy trees, you should schedule regular tree trimming services from a certified professional. At Independent Tree, we focus on preserving the health of your trees through regular tree pruning, paying special attention to the shape and weight of each tree.

We recommend pruning trees regularly for several reasons, including:

  • Thinning and shaping the canopy for better airflow between branches
  • Controlling the tree’s growth to keep it from interfering with structures, power lines, walkways, or roads
  • Reducing the need for storm damage clean-up by keeping trees healthy and tending to weak branches early
  • Removing infected branches for disease treatment before the disease has a chance to spread

By scheduling regular tree pruning with our company, you can avoid costly emergency tree removal, disease treatment, and property damage during inclement weather from falling trees or branches. Additionally, with proper cabling and bracing, we can support weaker branches and guide their growth for a stronger tree structure.

We had a large white oak uproot and threaten our home. They responded on the day of the uprooting with an assessment, advice, and an appointment. On the day of the work, they came on time and fully prepared. They safely brought the tree down with zero damage to the property. The team was professional and efficient.

Treatment & Prevention of Tree Diseases in Shaker Heights

When you call us, we’ll inspect the trees on your property for signs of infection by common tree diseases, including:

We can then plan appropriate disease treatment for any active infections, disease prevention to keep the rest of your trees healthy, and fertilization to feed your trees appropriately so they can resist disease more easily.

Tree & Shrub Fertilization

Through soil testing and other measurements, we can determine which nutrients your trees need and if your soil requires additional conditioning. We’ll develop a custom organic fertilizer formula and soil amendment blend to address concerns on your property.

We can also apply a plant growth regulator treatment to help your trees grow more fine root hairs to help with water and nutrient absorption, improving health and growth from the ground up.

Mosquito & Tick Control

Northeast Ohio is home to mosquitos and ticks. These pests in your yard can infect you, your family members, and your pets with any of several diseases, including Lyme disease, West Nile Virus, eastern equine encephalitis virus, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, anaplasmosis, babesiosis, and more.

At Independent Tree, we know the risks these dangerous insects can pose to humans and pets alike. We offer seasonal sprays that target different stages of these pests’ reproductive cycles, lessening their population and reducing your risk of contracting one of these life-altering diseases. Call us for tick and mosquito control.

Tree Removal & Stump Grinding

If you have a tree that requires removal on your property due to oak wilt, illness, or instability, we offer tree removal and stump grinding services. For large trees, we even offer tree removal with a crane. After removing a tree, we can grind the stump to prevent regrowth, infection, or infestation of the live stump. We can also help you choose the right tree for replacement in accordance with local ordinances.
