What does regular Denver tree service and maintenance look like?

Trimming: Regular maintenance of branch health and length in our Urban Forest Environment is important for many reasons. Careful maintenance trims or pruning facilitates fresh, young productive growth. Older and dead branches can increase a trees risk of pest infestation or disease. Trimming regularly also mitigates the potential for hazard from fallen or broken branches. All of this maintenance in turn protects your valuable tree assets for years to come.

Removals: In many different cases, you may need a tree removed from your property. The crew with Colorado Trees is able to remove trees of all sizes, in many different seasons and weather conditions. We’re also able to remove trees from lots of different locations.

We’ve safely removed trees from between houses, hanging over a structure (i.e., a garage, fence, shed, home, et cetera).  Our crew is highly trained to handle removals that require technical rigging and/or use of a crane to remove larger trees. We work with the city to get all necessary permits for temporary street closures to ensure this is a smooth and safe procedure, every time.

Treatments: Colorado Trees has a Qualified Supervisor with the Department of Agriculture to diagnose and treat various tree health issues. Denver tree health issues which require service range from mitigating infestations or infections, or treatments after they have been infested or infected to help get their immune systems working on their own again. We also offer vitality treatments to boost the overall metabolism of your tree, helping their immune and vascular systems run at an optimum level to fight off both infestations and infections.

Can Snow and Ice Damage My Trees?

Ice buildup on tree branch

Here in Colorado, winter weather is a given. Between seasons, snow can come at what seems like any moment. While some arbor species were meant to handle this harsh climate, the climate is changing, and so are the weather patterns. Extreme fluctuations in the weather can seriously damage your trees! 

Any deciduous tree can be damaged by the snow and ice storms which frequent the Denver Metro area. Softer trees like elm and birch trees can be damaged by the weight of ice accumulation on branches. Trees with a single trunk that splits into two can even crack right down the middle!

When trees and branches break, they can impair buildings and power lines. This can create a dangerous situation for your family or business. If a tree is damaged in any way, you’ll want to call a certified arborist from Colorado Trees. We’re happy to come give you an estimate or assess storm damage on more immediate notice.

There’s not too much you can do to prevent storm damage on your older, more established trees before a big storm except regular maintenance. They’ve been through a lot, but with proper care you can set them up for success before a storm comes. Younger, smaller trees around twelve to fifteen feet tall might fare a little worse at the onset of an extreme temperature drop or winter storm. You can loosely wrap a tarp, burlap, or thin plastic around these guys if they still have leaves.  

If one of your trees or branches is starting to crack due to winter weather — don’t worry! Just get in touch. We’re certified, licensed, insured, and not to mention, pretty good at what we do! We’d love to make sure your trees are ready for a wild winter, and we’re here to help in case of immediate tree damage, too.
