Advantages of Hiring a Tree Service Company in Albany NY

<IMAGE PROFESSIONAL TREE CARE> Caring for trees is not only beneficial to us and the environment, but also beneficial for homes and businesses both aesthetically and in terms of property value. Growing trees and plants to maturity creates

a serene ambiance and beautifies the external space. Most landscaping and gardening jobs can be done by DIY’ers especially if one has the proverbial green thumbs and an interest and affinity for landscaping.

Tree care services however, call for some level of specialization, which requires people who are trained and have professional qualifications in tree care.

Continued Professional Training

At On A Limb Tree Care, Inc., we love our work in the Upstate New York and Greater Capital Region and take it very seriously.  That’s why we are a member of the New York State Arborist ISA (International Society of Arboriculture) Chapter.  Being a member opens up many opportunities for our staff’s advanced training and education.

This is a voluntary membership which is evidence that you are dealing with a professional company whose staff is not only knowledgeable and well equipped to perform tree care services, but also dedicated to a standard of excellence. We are fully insured and use the most modern equipment, techniques and safety gear to handle every job.

Advantages of Services Offered

Tree services begin with planting. Knowing the appropriate tree species for a particular environment, soil type, purpose and even location of a tree is key. You may not know how high a tree can grow, or how far or wide the root system of a tree will grow—both of these can potentially damage structures and utilities.  We will advise you on the best option for you. Whether you are looking for a flowering tree or a bushy one that offers a great canopy we will guide you on your options.

In the event that a tree falls or is damaged, we offer emergency services to clear the debris and survey your property to ensure that there are no further risks of injury or property damage from loose tree limbs. Damaged trees can also be rehabilitated to stop further damage and ensure healthy growth. To avoid getting into an emergency situation, we recommend and undertake regular pruning of trees to ensure that weak, decaying or diseased branches are removed before they become a potential hazard. Tree and shrub pruning also allows sufficient sunlight to reach other plants and grass below the tree. The best equipment and techniques are used to ensure that your property including the lawn is not damaged during the pruning process.

Further stability to trees can be provided through a process known as cabling and bracing which involves the insertion of cables into trees to offer support. The cables take some of the weight or stress off branches allowing them to grow safely. We know that this requires utmost skill and care in order not to damage the trees or your property.

Whenever necessary and in most cases when a tree poses some danger, it will need to be removed. That is a sad reality. We utilize safety ropes and, if necessary, cranes to safely remove trees with little to no damage to your lawn. The cranes are operated only by our certified crane operators. We also ensure safe removal of tree stumps and will rehabilitate the space to leave your lawn neat and tidy.

We know that trees provide various benefits to us, but they are also popular with pets. Cats are known to enjoy a good climb up a tree but they never seem to think about how they will get down! Instead of calling 911 for the fire service, we offer you this service and will help you bring your pet safely down to earth.  We’ve even been known to rescue a drone copter before.
