The Best Hawkins County Tree Service

What Type of Tree Service Do I Need?

Your tree care needs will vary based on seasonality, the types of trees in your yard, the age and size of your trees and the number of trees on your property. The climate in Church Hill, Mount Carmel and Rogersville, as well as the location of your trees in relation to buildings and hardscape features will also help determine what options are available to you.

Tree Trimming

Older trees require regular maintenance or corrective trimming for optimal health. There are several methods of trimming commonly used for mature trees:

  • Crown Cleaning – Most professional tree companies will start with a crown cleaning. This process removes problem areas from the crown such as dead, diseased or broken branches.
  • Crown Thinning – Thinning removes branches which are growing improperly and crowding out healthier limbs. Thinning an overcrowded crown allows the tree to receive better airflow and more rays from the sun.
  • Raising the Crown – Removing the lower branches of a tree is known as crown raising. This is usually done for aesthetics as well as ease of mowing under the tree.
  • Reducing the Crown – Crown reduction removes the upper limbs of the tree. This is only used when necessary because the types of cuts required for this method will often leave the tree susceptible to disease.

Tree Pruning

Younger trees require careful pruning. Pruning encourages new growth which helps keep the tree lush, healthy, and well-shaped. When pruning is introduced to a young tree it will improve the overall form and eliminate the need for heavy trimming as the tree ages. Hiring a tree company in Hawkins County with a flair for artistic pruning may not be high your wish list, but it often goes hand in hand with a high quality service professional who takes pride in their work and does what is necessary to improve the aesthetics of your property.

General Ongoing Tree Care

Scheduling quarterly, semi-annual or monthly tree service will allow you to enjoy beautiful trees year round. If you have several species requiring multiple types of care a planned maintenance schedule will ensure shaping, pruning, disease detection and more are each done at appropriate times. Regular tree care services also include disease monitoring, treatment of tree diseases, and storm bracing.

Emergency Tree Service in Hawkins County

Professional tree companies offer emergency service for those times when tree or limb removal just cannot wait. If a large limb or a tree has fallen on your home or car, or if a precariously balanced branch is hanging over a walkway, you should request emergency tree services. Keep in mind that emergency tree care will cost more than regular maintenance, particularly if you are requesting same or next-day service. Finding a tree care company in Church Hill, Mount Carmel and Rogersville to address hazards right after a storm can be difficult due to the amount of downed trees and subsequent service requests received. Emergency service is usually charged at a premium of 1.5x to 3.5x more than regular rates.

Questions to Ask Your Tree Service Company

Should I Have My Tree Topped?

Topping a tree is an aggressive technique and can significantly damage your tree so it is only to be used when a tree is encroaching on a building or other structure that may cause damage.

Will You Remove the Debris from Pruning and Trimming?

Yes! Aptera tree service companies in Hawkins County will remove all debris from trimming or pruning.

Can You Mulch the Limbs for Me?

Most of our partners have access to large chipper machines and for a small fee will mulch the limbs for you. Just be sure to make the request when scheduling.

Will Your Equipment Damage My Lawn?

Although the utmost care will be used, tree trimming equipment needed for trees above 15 feet is heavy and have the ability to damage landscaping or smaller plants.

*Always alert tree service professionals to the location of any irrigation systems and other hidden areas of concern.

Do You Use Climbing Spikes?

Climbing spikes can damage a tree and should not be used for trimming a living tree whenever necessary.

When Should Trimming Be Done?

Most trees can be trimmed anytime outside of an active bloom. The best time for trimming deciduous trees is just prior to budding.

Are You Insured?

Hawkins County tree companies will have general liability insurance and worker’s compensation insurance. Additionally, they will have certified arborists on staff and follow OSHA guidelines for safety.

Your Tree Care Checklist For Homeowners

There are steps you can take on your own to help ensure the health of your trees by keeping an eye out for hazards and performing small maintenance tasks in between regular appointments. Follow these tips for optimal tree health:

  • Look For Signs of Disease – Trees infected with bacterial diseases, blight, or certain types of fungal spores have various warning signs which indicate an unhealthy state. Look for brittle or spongy bark, defoliation (early or unusual leaf loss), visible fungus growing on the bark, and lesions on needles or leaves.
  • Hydration – Make sure your trees get enough water in arid climates or times of drought. For saplings during the first two years you should water them every day by soaking the root area for approximately 30 seconds. Applying mulch at a depth of 3” around the base of the tree will help it retain the right amount of moisture after watering.
  • Intermittent Pruning – If you want to shape your trees between regular tree care appointments, make sure you are cutting the branch in the correct manner to avoid damaging the tree. Pruning is done in a succession of three cuts:
  1. Make a small notch on the underside of the branch, about two inches from where it joins the tree.
  2. Make a vertical cut an inch to the outside of the first cut, lopping off the branch.
  3. You will be left with a few inches of the branch still intact with the tree. Remove this portion at the branch collar, leaving as little of a stump as possible without wounding the collar.
  • Avoiding Trimming Evergreens – While deciduous trees can be pruned nearly any time of year, evergreens should not be trimmed if it can be avoided. Trimming an evergreen for corrective purposes is acceptable.
  • Aptera tree care in Hawkins County will improve the look of your property and even increase the value of your home.
