Winter Tree Removal
  
Some removals obviously have to be done right away, especially if they are a safety hazard, but many removals can wait. 

Here are just a few good reasons to perform tree work in the winter:

1.) There are not landscape companies or spring cleanup crews in the way 2.) The ground is often frozen thus minimizing yard damage 3.) The leaves are not on the trees thus making the workload lighter 4.) Trees are dormant

Safety Spotlight

Do you know that storm season is approaching us here in the Northeast? TCIA does and wants to give you a heads up! 
Winter is storm season in the northeast region of the U.S. Are you prepared? Here are a few best practices to reduce the likelihood of falling branches during storms:  
Mulch Around Your Tree
Properly Fertilize
Provide Appropriate Nutrition
Prune Your Tree
*Use an Arborist*
 
Certified Arborists will be able to check if your tree is structurally safe, sturdy and healthy. They can also assist in cabling or adding bracing rods to stabilize, secure and support your tree if necessary.
Cabling: “Installing galvanized steel support cables to reinforce and strengthen the upper canopy.”
Bracing Rods: “Threading steel through bolts often installed on the trunk when there are multiple leader stems or to prevent a crack from widening.”
