Municipalities, developers and homeowners around the world are increasingly working to preserve trees in our communities. Mature trees improve the aesthetics of our neighborhoods and even increase the value of a home or property. Trees play a critical role in our urban forest replenishing the air we breathe, protecting our homes from the sun, wind and rain, and reducing surface rainwater runoff.
Serving the interests of residential, commercial and municipal customers, Jones Road Tree Service always recommends saving trees whenever possible. It is important to remember that not all trees can be saved. Trees with weak structure or poor health should not be saved. Indications of poor tree structure include one sided canopy, dead branches, double trunk, codominant trunk, leaning, and low live crown ratio. Additionally, we look for signs of negligence or poor workmanship in prior maintenance. For example, if a tree has been improperly pruned or topped in the past, new growth may actually compromise the overall structure of the tree making it a hazard.
Before you build on a site with existing trees, Jones Road Tree Service LLC recommends writing a formal plan to protect your trees. We can prescribe bio-stimulants, tree barricading with chain link fencing and/or air spading to fight soil compaction caused by the construction process. The tree plan should be provided to all subcontractors at your job site.
