October Monthly Recap

During the month of October, we completed many different jobs throughout the Des Moines area. In Urbandale, we serviced several homes for maintenance and shaping of bushes, along with bush and hedge removal as we prepare for colder weather. We completed a removal of an ash tree in Clive, as well as several smaller tree extractions. Throughout the remainder of the month, we trimmed trees throughout Ankeny and Grimes areas.

Mature Tree Care

Think of tree care as an investment.  A healthy tree increases in value with age and pays big dividends by increasing property values, beautifying your surroundings, purifying the air, and saving energy by providing cooling shade from summer’s heat and protection from winter’s wind.
Regular preventative maintenance, designed to promote tree health and structual integrity, ensures a tree’s value will continue to grow and prevents the development of more costly problems in the future. 
Pruning is one form of maintenance.  It is often necessary to remove dead, diseased or insect-infested branches and to improve tree structure, enhance vitality, or reduce risk.
Removal is needed when a tree is dead, dying, considered irreparably hazardous, is causing an obstruction, or is crowding and causing harm to other trees.

We can care for your tree needs any time of the year

As the holidays approach, your landscaping needs are probably not on the forefront of your mind.  However, while you are on a ladder hanging your holiday decorations/lights, it is a perfect time to take a good look at the trees in your yard to see if they may need some trimming.  If any branches or tree limbs are getting close to your house give us a call for a bid!  We will be happy to come out and take a look and give you a free quote.
Winter weather can also do a number on your trees.  Heavy, wet snow can weigh down your branches and ice can put so much weight on your trees that limbs often snap off.  This can be very damaging to your home/property.  You can eliminate this concern by making sure your trees are trimmed.  The cost to repair your home from tree damage will be much more [ ]

Trimming Your Oak Trees

If you have oak trees in your yard, after they have gone dormant is the best time to get them trimmed. Heading into the winter season, now is when you would want to schedule a time to have them looked at.
