Many urban trees are growing in poor conditions, such as highly compacted soils low in organic matter and microbial life. In an urban environment, leaf litter that decomposes and provides natural fertilizers for our trees is cleared away. Grass is planted under trees, creating competition for water and nutrients, and then mowed with heavy equipment that compacts the soil. When homes are built, topsoil is removed and roots are damaged. Traditional fertilizers high in Nitrogen, can produce excessive canopy growth, which can be problematic when trees lack the required root system to support extra growth. These things combined can leave trees in a weakened state, predisposing them to attacks from insects and disease.
The backbone of a Tree Company is its Arborists. Becoming certified is only the beginning of a career in Arboriculture. Experience, training, and education is what turns a certified Arborist into a great Arborist. At Green Leaf Tree we strive to provide these qualities so we can bring the very best service to our customers. Often people are surprised when trees they thought would need to be removed can be saved, or when they learn exactly what kind of trimming their trees need and why. This valuable advice is not only useful in helping you make good, balanced decisions, it’s educational, too!
For example, did you know that trees, like almost all living organisms, fight off diseases and attacks by bugs and bacteria? Unlike animals however, trees never “heal” an infected part of themselves, they just wall off their sick parts and grow around them, effectively “sweeping their problems under the rug”! Trees that are rotten inside will always be rotten (or hollow) but that’s not always bad; a healthy tree will compartmentalize the rotten area with special protective layers of cells and just keep adding layers of wood around it. Keep in mind any tree that poses potential hazard needs to be look at and evaluated properly.
Start talking with Green Leaf’s Arborist Don and you could find yourself picking up little tidbits of information like that, making analogies between trees and people (some of these analogies could be a streeeeetch…), or getting into a lively exchange about recycling, city planning, public transit……just a fair warning. Arborists are a strange breed. Remember that most of them got into this business so that they could climb trees. Cheers!
