Healthy trees are likely the most valuable landscape asset on your property. Unhealthy trees are the opposite. They can be a liability, hazard and a risk to people and structures. Keeping them healthy and beautiful should be a priority. Our highly trained arborists help to preserve trees in the Erie, PA and surrounding areas.
Any and all of these events can and do damage your trees. Sometimes it can be mediated but at times it can’t. Also, please note that not all trees merit preservation, some trees are structural nightmares and pose severe risk to targets and people. You can have good biological function with a tree but also have a sketchy at-risk tree that is unsafe.
Even small, insignificant factors can harm trees, putting them in stress and possible decline. The fact that trees occupy large spaces, both above the ground, and within the soil structure puts them at risk of many negative happenings, including the following reasons:
- Irrigation installs
- Vehicle traffic
- Bare soils
- Herbicides, weed killer and synthetic fertilizers
- Installation of sod, retaining walls and pavement over CRZ
- Loss of surrounding barrier trees
- Insect Colonization
