When you realize that trees are the oldest organisms on the planet, it becomes apparent that we must protect and care for them. They communicate with each other and even send nutrients to ailing trees via a complicated root system. If you have ever walked down a street devoid of trees, you can see how important they are to shaping how we view the world. They help to cool the planet and provide life generating oxygen. On a planet in which global temperatures continue to rise, we see the value in caring for trees, young and old.
Water is the elixir of the planet. Human bodies are comprised primarily of water. Although they stand tall and strong, a tree’s predominant makeup is water. Saplings have the highest risk of perishing. When we select and plant trees on your property, we make sure that it’s the right species, given the light, soil and location. It is imperative that we give it just the right amount of hydration. Too much and you drown it. Too little and it will starve. As trained and licensed arborists, we know ho much water is required for trees to thrive. Allow us to take the guesswork out of tree care.
To be quite honest, the soil quality in Sacramento is not great. In an effort for trees to thrive in an urban setting they need fertilizer.

When trees are able to garner the resources they need near the surface, they won’t have a need to plunge deeper and damage your sidewalks, plumbing and foundation. If you see that your trees show signs of struggle, contact us today to explore fertilization options.
You may recall your science teacher speaking about these magical little protons, neutrons and electrons. All of it is energy that cannot be detected with the human eye. Trees are miraculous beings that transform energy from the sun into oxygen. Marine plants, algae and trees supply the entire planet with this vital resource that every living thing requires to survive. It is imperative that saplings are planted in areas that provide the right amount of light. If not, they won’t survive, regardless of the amount of water or fertilization. As veteran arborists, provide viable solutions for trees that are not in a conducive light environment.
Pruning, Mulching and Root Care
Pruning should be done with care. All too often, homeowners and landscapers are in a rush to get ‘er done. The results are disastrous for trees. If the right tools and techniques are not utilized, the necessary callous will not form. This leaves your trees in danger of preventable diseases and insect infestation. Mulching is a natural insulator for trees. It protects them from cold Sacramento evenings and hot summer days. The foundation of every healthy tree is its roots. We make sure that your tree’s roots receive just the right amount of nutrients to grab hold and thrive.
