Residential Tree Care & Inspections

When was the last time you had a tree inspection or had a plant inspection to assess the overall health of your landscape? If it’s been awhile, now may be the best time to have our professional Certified Arborist examine your property. As Plant Health Care Specialists, our tree doctors effectively service homes throughout Delaware County, Chester County and Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. We will examine your trees and shrubs to assess their health and overall conditions to identify how we can offer solutions to their problems.

The Importance of Residential Tree & Shrub Care

Oftentimes, when trees and shrubs initially develop problems, an untrained eye is unable to notice the symptoms of environmental stress, a pest, or disease such as a tree fungus until it’s too late. By the time tree problems are widespread throughout the tree, it may be too late. We are tree professionals and will examine your trees and shrubs to check for stress or symptoms of pests or disease. Oftentimes the expense of removal can be avoided with early detection and treatment.

Regular Residential Tree Inspections

The best times of the year for an initial tree inspection is in the spring and fall. As we become familiar with your property we can identify common problems with key plants in your landscape and schedule additional visits if necessary. Prevention and suppression of pests and disease will typically always offer the best results, and in order to best manage the trees and shrubs on your property, regular tree Inspections are key.

Why Hire a Certified Arborist vs. Tree Service?

Often confused, Arborists are often a world apart from tree trimmers or landscapers. Many tree service companies can remove your dead or fallen trees but lack, however, the majority lack the proper education AND certification that enables a qualified Arborist order to preserve and protect your landscape over the long haul. The major difference is that Certified Arborists must meet strict standards and participate in ongoing continuing education to stay up-to-date on the latest science in tree care and insect and disease management. They can evaluate the condition of trees then provide the best tree management plan in order to minimize risks and keep them healthy.
