Why Hire a Certified Arborist?
In most industries, there is a standard to help customers determine the level of service they can expect from a given professional. In the tree care industry, the certifying organization is called the International Society of Arboriculture. The ISA sets standards for individuals to reach before they certify them as arborists. These include field experience and education to obtain an arborist’s certification as well as continuing education credits to maintain the certificate over the years after they pass their exam.
What this means to the customer is that, when you hire a company that is run by an arborist, you can expect the highest level of technical excellence that is available to the tree care industry. Thompson Rivers Tree Service is run by an arborist that advises and works with our crews on a daily basis. This means that when you call us for help, you are getting the gold standard in tree care.
When to Call for Tree Removal
Deciding to remove a tree can be a difficult decision. On one hand, it may be a tree you would like to keep and it is suffering from a disease. On the other hand, it may be threatening to damage your home. Regardless of the reason, the professionals at Thompson Rivers Tree Service are ready to help you make the decision.
Some of the reasons that you may need a tree removed are:
- Trees are growing into power lines
- Trees are growing too close to a home or commercial building
- Trees are damaging a foundation with invasive roots
- Limbs are laying on roofs and damaging roofing material
- Diseased trees are suffering
- Too many trees are crowding each other for sunlight and other nutrients
Why is Tree Trimming and Pruning Necessary?
When left on their own, trees in the wild can become overgrown to the point that they inhibit the growth of trees around them and damage their own potential to be healthy. In a habitat with limited resources, trees become competitive to their own detriment. This is where human intervention can come in handy.
One of the primary tasks that fall to a tree service company is to keep trees growing in a habit that is healthiest for them and the surrounding landscape. We use trimming and pruning techniques to accomplish this. Some of the benefits of pruning and trimming are:
- Prevents unhealthy overgrowth
- Allows better light penetration
- Allows better air circulation within a tree
- Promotes foliar growth
- Promotes fruit production
- Maintains appealing shape of the tree or shrub
How We Do Stump Removal
At Thompson Rivers Tree Service, we’ve found the best way to accomplish stump removal is with stump grinding. Stump grinding uses a special machine that has a large spinning blade. The blade is lowered onto the stump where it grinds it down into coarse sawdust. One of the main benefits of stump grinding is that it grinds below the level of the ground so taproots are destroyed. This prevents ugly regrowth and allows the homeowner to immediately replant the area.
Professional Lot Clearing Services
Removing trees and vegetation from a build site is the first step to an exciting construction project. At Thompson Rivers Tree Service, we perform lot clearings to your exact specifications. We can clear-cut lots or selectively cut them so that you can save trees that you want to keep around. Our crews will expertly remove all of the necessary trees and undergrowth and grind away stumps so that your construction crews will be ready to begin work.
