Frequently Asked Questions!

  • What should I look for in a tree care company?

    When it comes to tree care, experience and knowledge should be non-negotiable. Because servicing a tree, whether treating, trimming, or removing, requires extreme safety precautions, and only those knowledgeable and prepared should be trusted to perform their duties safely. Making sure that the tree company you hire is licensed, bonded, and insured to protect your financial interests is paramount for you — A-1 Tree and Landscaping Services has all you need to give you the opportunity to relax while your project is being done.

  • How can I tell if my tree needs to be removed?

    There are a variety of signs that indicate a tree is in less-than-perfect health, however, that does not mean that complete removal is needed. With a little TLC, your trees could be restored to their naturally robust selves. Symptoms of a tree in distress include leaf discoloration, leaf thinning, fungal growth, shoots growing from its base or roots, etc. If your tree is suddenly changing in appearance, call a professional tree care company for health analysis.

  • Why do my trees need to be trimmed?

    Beyond the basic aesthetics, overgrown trees are subject to a number of health risks. When a branch or limb breaks, it leaves an open wound where insects and disease can invade. The health of the entire tree is left vulnerable and your tree’s days could be numbered. Furthermore, regular pruning and trimming keep the rest of your property safe from falling branches and limbs.

  • What are the best trees to plant?

    With hundreds of species available, it can be hard to choose which trees to plant on your property. However, we always recommend selecting those that are appropriate for the local climate as you’ll save water and maintenance costs and keep the rest of your landscape safe from invasive species. Your personal preferences for color, tree shape, and shading will also help narrow down the choices.

  • If you determine a tree needs to be removed from my property, what can I expect?

    At A-1 Tree and Landscape Services, we never start a project without first taking every precaution to protect your property, the surrounding area, and every living thing within the radius of the tree’s crown. We simply refuse to compromise safety and use only industry-approved methods and equipment to limit risk wherever and however we can.
