New Hurricane Tree Removal and Clean Up Page

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on New Hurricane Tree Removal and Clean Up Page

Just a quick note to  let everyone know that we put up a new Hurricane Tree Removal and Clean Up page.

Like it or not, hurricanes are a fact of life around the Charleston area. Our new Hurricane Tree Removal and Clean Up page is just to let you know that we stand ready to assist and that we have a great amount of experience working in the aftermath of hurricanes.

Attention to your trees that suffer damage from strong winds or hurricanes:

1. Do not give up on them or write them off. Trees can sustain significant damage and still live. Proper trimming may be the answer to save a portion of the tree.

2. Save what you have.  Proper care after damage may limit further damage.

3. Preparation. Maintenance of your trees does two things. 

  a. It makes your trees look good.

  b. It helps ensure the trees will have strong and safe structures as they grow. Consider a regular visit from a certified arborist, much like your annual termite inspection. Unfortunately most people tend to let trees mature without planned maintenance. The damage sustained by our next hurricane can be limited to a large degree with proper tree maintenance. A quick free inspection by your arborist will give you ideas on how to proceed. Call today.

Mt Pleasant and Charleston Tree Service Required

Mt Pleasant and Charleston Tree Service Required

Here at Palmetto Tree Service we are preparing for a busy spring season. The great recession left home and business owners with few resources to perform general maintenance on their trees and due to this, one of the biggest problems we are seeing right now are dead trees looming over homes, walkways and other common areas.

Dead trees are dangerous. They drop branches and pose the risk of falling or blowing over onto surrounding areas. Due to rot and decay, dead trees are particularly unpredictable to fell; therefore a Charleston professional tree removal company that carries general liability and workman’s compensation insurance should always remove them.

You have probably driven by a construction site before and seen orange netting on the site. In many instances that netting was the established boundary around trees. It marked the area that was not to be disturbed during the construction project.
 
Each tree has an area around it in which unacceptable damage would be sustained if the roots and soil around them were molested. The the orange netting alerts all workers and helps prevent them from disturbing that soil. Below are a few pictures of various tree sizes and types, each with a different boundary requirement based on the individual root structure.
