Trees like your home need care and attention.  Neglect often leads to damage not only to the tree, but your home.  Recalling the wind, snow and rain storms that
visit Cincinnati each year reminds homeowners in Lebanon, Wyoming, Hyde Park, Ft. Wright and Cheviot of the dangers of unattended to trees.  The little things
like broken branches and leaves are easy to remedy, but when you have downed power lines, roof and gutter damage, your home is now in need of professional
repairs.

Though proper tree care is not a guarantee that damage to your trees and home will not occur; it's an excellent preventative measure.

So when a Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky homeowner wants to find an arborist, what should s/he do?  Start by asking the following questions:

  • What needs to be done to my trees?
  • Do my trees need pruning?
  • Is my tree dying?
  • Do I need to remove the tree?  If so, can the arborist also remove the stump and plant another tree?
  • Can I find tree(s) that are best for my environment?
  • How many years experience does the arborist, or tree service, have in the care of trees?
  • Is the arborist certified to inspect my trees?
  • Does the tree service have insurance?

Proper tree care and maintenance by a
professional arborist will add beauty and longevity to your trees.  Certified tree services or arborists provide a variety of
services.  They include tree pruning, tree spraying, tree fertilization, tree removal, tree disease assessment and prevention and stump grinding.

Tree Pruning
There are many reasons to have tree pruning done to your trees. It may be necessary to cut trees away from a house, clear trees from signs, remove lower tree
branches, or cut trees back from driveways.  If the canopy, or crown of the tree, has excessive branches an arborist can remove tree branches from the interior of
the tree canopy. Tree thinning allows the wind to blow through the tree canopy and can reduce the chance that the tree will be damaged in a storm.

Tree Spraying
The tree species is often the determining factor as to whether tree spraying is necessary.  Some tree species, like Maple trees, are rarely in need of tree
spraying. Other tree species, like certain Crabapple tree varieties, may require tree spraying every year to control insect pests or tree diseases. A local arborist
will usually know what tree species is susceptible to insect pest or tree diseases in your area.

Tree Fertilization
An often overlooked tree care service is tree fertilization. Many homeowners don’t realize the need to have tree fertilization done because trees in the forest seem
to grow without tree fertilization.  However, an arborist can explain that there are significant differences in the growing environment between forest trees and
landscape trees. There are several tree fertilization techniques available to an arborist to make sure your trees remain as healthy as possible.

Tree Removal
An arborist usually starts a tree service or works for a tree service to save trees, not remove trees. Nonetheless, trees have a lifespan and tree removal will
eventually be necessary. Tree removal,  especially removal of large trees, is best handled by an arborist that is experienced and carries the proper liability
insurance.

Stump Grinding
After a tree service completes a tree removal all that remains is the tree stump. In the past it was thought that grinding a tree stump was optional. If the tree
stump was in a remote location in your landscape, it could be left to decay naturally. More recent research, however, indicates that grinding out tree stumps may
help protect other trees in your landscape. Decay fungi that might attack your other trees could become established on stumps left in the landscape after a tree
removal. These fungi use existing stumps as a food source and then become established in your landscape. If one of your other trees is wounded in the future
the decay fungi then has the opportunity to colonize the wounded tree.  If you contract stump removal with your local tree service they may grind a tree stump the
same day as the tree removal or their arborist may return later to do the stump grinding.

Now that you know what needs to be done and why for the proper care of your trees, you need locate a certified tree service or arborist.  The tree care specialists
