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.

Weather Emergencies and Colorado Trees

Weather emergencies and other extreme weather events are commonplace in Colorado’s front range. In this case, the Colorado Trees crew is here to help resolve tree-related weather emergency calls.

Although Colorado’s deciduous trees go dormant for the winter, they are still susceptible to damage via extreme weather. Fluctuating temperatures, swift temperature drops, and low soil moisture are weather emergencies which influence your tree’s vulnerability to damage.

Property owners can decrease tree susceptibility to illness, injury, and death in the case of winter weather emergencies via preventative maintenance. Thus, decrease your risk of tree damage or property damage during a weather emergency by keeping soil moist in the fall, and making sure limbs are pruned regularly.

If you weren’t able to do your yearly maintenance and your tree gets hit by the heavy snows, a certified arborist from Colorado Trees is happy to help set your trees straight. We mitigate this damage through trimming or removal of hazardous trees or their limbs.

After a snow or ice storm, there are some questions you can ask to see if you need our help:

  • Has the tree lost any portion of its canopy?
  • Does the tree have any broken limbs or branches?
  • Are there cracks in the wood?
  • Is the tree leaning?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, please get in touch with us.

This means your tree is likely damaged, and we’ll need to come trim or remove parts of it. Broken trees as a result of weather emergencies are hazardous. They have the potential to harm people and property if not taken care of swiftly.

With Colorado Trees, the winter season is a fantastic time for removing trees that could become a problem if not dealt with.  We offer discounted pricing on all trims and removals during the winter. So give us a call!

Maintain Trees That Are Ready for Denver’s Winter

As winter approaches, you may be wondering whether or not your property’s trees are ready to face ice and snow. It’s no surprise that snow and ice can damage your trees. Yet, you’re wondering if there’s anything you can do to maintain trees that are ready for Denver’s winter months. 

The answer is yes! Allow us to explain. maintain trees that are ready for denver's winter

Maintenance pruning is the thoughtful cutting back of certain parts of your trees or other woody plants. This controls the size and shape of the tree. However, it also keeps the organism productive and healthy. An added bonus of maintenance pruning is that it decreases your tree’s susceptibility to pests and disease.

When your tree has lots of dead branches and thick, congested areas in the canopy, they are more susceptible to breaking in snow, ice, and wind storms. For this reason, maintenance pruning throughout the year can set your tree up for success before the heavy snows come in. 

For your trees that are younger or newly transplanted, it’s a good idea to wrap the lower 1 to 2 feet of the trunk with a light cloth wrap. You can get these at any nursery. This will help protect your younger trees from frost damage and help better prepare them for Denver’s winter. 

Your trees are a valuable asset to your property, so it’s important to care for and maintain trees that are ready for Denver’s winter. If you’d like to learn even more, be sure to schedule an estimate with a certified arborist from Colorado Trees to make sure your trees are ready for anything this winter.
