Risk Assessment

Whether your trees are old or young; HTC can give you a complete and meaningful risk assessment of the hazards the tree poses to humans, pets and structures. In addition, HTC will specify the appropriate plan of action to reduce your risks via pruning, removal or various other risk reduction strategies to keep you and your trees safe and healthy.

Construction Damage Mitigation

Any construction near trees deserves some forethought and careful planning. Construction damage can range from soil compaction to crown and trunk damage that can severely harm the tree and reduce vigor and potentially cause death. HTC has years of construction damage mitigation experience, to ensure positive results for the project while protecting the tree. If tree damage has already occurred, HTC can provide a myriad of products and mitigation methodologies, to bring the tree back to health for the long run.

Pruning and Removals

Tree pruning is an effective way to remove dead wood, reduce structural failure, remove pathogens and to provide adequate clearances to existing structures. Crown/branch reduction, elevation and sanitation pruning can achieve the latter goals while decreasing the chance of structural failure in normal and stormy conditions. If the tree can’t be saved, HTC can oversee the removal and replanting of trees to the customer’s satisfaction.

Tree Health Assessment

Periodic tree health assessments are a good idea for your trees. Catching pathogens and problems early greatly improves the trees chances for recovery and is almost always cheaper in the long run. HTC can often nurse your tree back to health using mechanical and chemical prescriptions to alleviate your tree health issues.

Tree Maintenance and Care

Proper maintenance and care is paramount in extending the life of your tree. Watering, weeding, fertilizing, spraying and maintaining proper soil grades by your tree is essential to promote good health and vigor. HTC can recommend strategies and take care of all your tree needs on a monthly or yearly basis and provide flexible billing options for payment.
