are you in need of tree care?

 

Did you know that a properly pruned tree lives longer and will keep a pleasing, natural form? 

Tree trimming and tree pruning encourages air circulation which reduces disease incidence and the possibility of damage from high winds.

 

Structure Pruning

This procedure is performed on many trees for health, beauty, and vigor. We remove dead, dying, diseased, broken or conflicting limbs of 3 inches or greater. This Tree Pruning can be done almost any time of the year.

Hazard Removal

This procedure speaks for itself. Our focus is safety. We will remove all broken limbs, deadwood, or widow makers of 4 inches or greater to protect you, your family, and your personal property from damage.

Crown Reduction

Crown reduction pruning is most often used when a tree has grown too large for its permitted space. This method, sometimes called drop crotch pruning, is preferred to topping because it results in a more natural appearance, increases the time before pruning is needed again, and minimizes stress.

Tree Removal Services

Tree removal is very dangerous work and should be left to certified arborists and highly skilled tree workers. It is important that these individuals be expertly trained, and also have a passion and deep connection with what they are doing. A single mistake could result in serious damage or injury.

Canopy Solutions specializes in low-impact tree removal. In fact, most properties are left in better condition than when we started. Every aspect of a removal, from power line drops, traffic control, complicated set-up procedures and complex rigging systems, to great clean-up, are carefully handled for you.

Please check the permitting regulations in your area prior to scheduling any removals.

Stump Grinding

Professional stump removers with the experience and expertise to handle any stump grinding job. Stump grinding is the most effective method for removal of unsightly tree stumps with little to no impact to your property or landscaping.

Soil/Root Excavation Service

Accessing root systems with an Air Spade TM is done for a number of reasons. An arborist may want to check for root rot beneath the surface, break up compacted soil that has been preventing nutrient and water flow to the roots, assess and correct girdling (circling) roots, or perform a root collar excavation  -- a treatment to remove soil around the root collar.

Fruit Production Pruning

When it comes to fruit trees, especially newly established ones, pruning is something that needs to be done throughout the entire life of the tree. Pruning essentially removes growth that is dead, diseased, or stunting healthy development of the fruit tree. Pruning is also done to retain or correct the tree's shape.
 

When to prune fruit trees?

Pruning needs to be done at least once a year. Traditionally, a fruit tree is pruned during its dormant season, which is late winter to early spring. Prune older trees earlier and wait as close to the end of winter as possible to prune younger trees and early-bloom fruit trees. Pruning can also be done at the end of summer to remove new shoots or to cut back upright shoots on side branches.

Emergency Storm Services

After one of Western Washington's windstorms, it's usually a good idea to walk your property. Doing a quick inspection of your trees can catch possible problems. Some damages can be hard to detect. Broken, hanging limbs or cracks can fail, causing substantial damage if they're not attended to. Hiring the right tree care company to assist you following a storm is a serious decision. Consumers must be careful to differentiate between established companies that invest in a deeply-rooted culture of safety and training, and those fly-by-night companies that attempt to capitalize on natural disasters.

Cabling and Bracing

Cables and brace rods are structural supports installed to reduce the risk of failure of weak branches and multiple stems. Cables generally consist of extra high strength steel and are attached to bolts installed in the upper crown of the canopy. They are intended to limit the movement of the supported branches so they are less likely to fail during storms.
