Dangerous trees are not to be taken lightly.  They can cause tremendous damage to property and people. A dangerous tree may not be easy to spot by an untrained eye, it requires experience and training to spot areas of concern.

Here are a few examples of dangerous trees:

  • Trees that overhang your home, out buildings, cars, etc.
  • Trees that overhang neighbors’ homes, out buildings, cars, etc.
  • Trees that overhang roadways.
  • Trees that appear healthy but are rotting at the core.
  • Trees over power lines or that have grown around power lines.
  • Trees that require climbing.
  • A tree that has suffered wind damage.

Tree Maintenance

Providing timely and needed maintenance ensures that your trees will live and provide you with years of beauty and shade.

Here are a few examples of maintenance your trees may need is to provide:

Pruning – removing healthy but over grown branches does more than just improve the shape and appearance of your trees.  It redirects the trees strength of the tree into it core, making the tree stronger and more beautiful.

Deadwooding – is the process of pruning and removing dead branches and limbs from a tree’s canopy. It should be performed with great care and with proper tools, to avoid damaging healthy parts of the tree.

Cabling & Branching – Cabling and bracing are the two most common forms of structural support for splitting or damaged trees. Cabling and bracing services are used for three major purposes –

  • Prevention: To reduce the chance of failure on a healthy tree with structural weakness
  • Restoration: To prolong the existence of a damaged tree
  • Mitigation: To reduce the hazard potential of a tree

Thinning – Tree thinning can prolong the life of your trees by fighting off drought conditions and insect and disease issues. It can improve air circulation, which reduces both disease incidence and the possibility of damage from storms and high winds.

Fertilization & Spraying – For healthy, lush, flourishing trees in Virginia, we recommend taking advantage of Ward’s Tree Services tree fertilization services.
