“Peep This Pick Up” Hauling Trees

Peep this style drip video clip of the Peterbilt grapple debris hauling truck operated smooth by “Last Call” Paul.

He’s the last man on the job making sure the last leaf is hauled away from the clients yard.

We recognize how hard you work on your lawn and this video shows how we do our best to leave the lawn and take the trees off site.

Contact Arbor Pros for tree debris hauling.

Ready or Not CHUNK-N” Dead Pine Tree Blocks

This wicked little video cut is a “cut and chunk” pine tree removal scenario. Another dead pine tree. Super dead pine tree. And of course this super very dead pine tree was tucked far back into the fence corner behind the shed. Too dead to climb our track lift machine fit through the narrow gate into the back yard. And of course…. throwing stuff from up high never gets old!!!!!!

“Stand Clear!!!!”

Please contact Arbor Pros immediately when you see a dead tree otherwise the risk level and cost of tree removal can go up the more dead it gets.

Dead Pines Removed in Tallahassee

Dead pines everywhere oh yes they are. So I write this in November of 2019 and after three years of hurricane hits to our area our trees are stressed out and dying.

Pay attention but there are literally dead pines everywhere. I play a game in the truck with my two boys, four and seven years old, spotting dead pines is quite an active car ride game…. try it and keep count!

Back to business -- here is a video of a beetle infested dead pine tree being removed by the Arbor Pros. Trees like this are dying all over the place and talk on the streets is shifting from hurricane and tree discussions to discussions about beetles.

“Oh the d@*#! beetles are gonna kill all my trees”

Maybe…. maybe not. That can be tough to predict, but what we do know is that the wind loading has stressed the trees out. When they sway so drastically, and three years in a row, internal cracking and fractures are happening. These damages cause the trees to use more energy in healing. Then they become stressed, weak, depleted, and then ultimately are susceptible to invasion by beetles.

So healthy trees do have immune systems which do keep the beetles out. The hard part is identifying these wind loaded stressed trees in advance so that those can be protected with pesticide. Once the visible signs of pine tree stress show up it more times than not turns into a tree removal job.

Tree owners out there, please look up, look up often so you spot these dying trees. When a tree gets too dead it becomes more dangerous for tree workers to remove it and the cost for removing it goes up.

So please spot your dead trees fast and report to Arbor Pros by phone or website to make your request.

Tree Pruning for Solar Panels

Solar panels are gaining popularity. Everyone wants to do their part right? In this video we do our part by pruning low cherry tree limbs away from the homeowner’s house to allow sunlight for solar panels. The cherry tree was the only impedance and not a super nice specimen tree, just an average wild cherry volunteering to grow between the house and over the new solar panels.

So I call these types of clients solar seekers.

The need for sunlight is most often to allow the lawn to grow better. When people need their grass to thrive they immediately look up to the shading trees and the battle begins between turf grass and trees.

As arborists we tend to love the trees more than the lawn but we get it, folks like a nice lawn!

Arbor Pros can assess your needs for sunlight, offer opinions on how much light could be gained by pruning, then assist by performing proper pruning to the offending trees.

If there is no way to salvage a tree because pruning will be too excessive, we will tell you. Tree removal then becomes an option if there are not neighboring trees in the backdrop that could also cast shade.

Think of Arbor Pros Expert Tree Company when you need more sunlight, let us know you are a “solar seeker” and have a great day!!!!

Dead Pine Tree Removal With 40 Ton Crane

As the title reads ohhhhh my dead pine in a bad spot surrounded by primary power lines on a fast moving one way street In mid-town Tallahassee which could have lead to catastrophe! But wait… the Arbor Pros showed up and with crane assisted tree removal we safely and predictably picked up and set down the dead trees. There were actually three in total all in the same area in which lightning appeared to strike one. The shock grounds into the surrounding root systems and distressed the conifers. Now stress and shock set in they become vulnerable to boring insects AKA BEETLES!!! Beetles are not the starting problem but they sure will finish off a stressed out weak tree. This is a problem lately in the panhandle of Florida. Recent hurricanes have left remnant damages to a lot of north Florida and Tallahassee’s trees. Inspect your trees there are systemic treatments to prevent invasion into a prized tree.

Call for more information or to speak with an Arbor Pro Arborist.

“Hinge Wood” Tree Felling

In the olden days they yelled TIMBERRRRRRR but times have changed and now the Arbor Pros say… STAND CLEAR!!!

The safest place to be when felling a tree is as far away as possible. In this sick little video cut (no pun) the sawer does a great job of setting up his directional pull rope, then cutting his directional notch, then setting up the hinge perfect with a back cut, then he steps far far away out of harms way and gives the command. BOO-Ya! Nice cut, nicely executed and the video clip even captures the hinge wood which is actually the fibers of the tree that the chainsaw operator intentionally leaves to “steer” the tree down to the ground. Its a skill that leaves your heart racing with Adrenalin every time and that’s why we come back for more!

So check out that HingeWood and when you need trees felled or removed call the pros… the Arbor Pros.

Vine Covered Pine Climbed and Cut Down

Holy cow this jaw dropping view from the perspective of certified arborist Cory Wilson up this 130’ tall vine covered pine is outrageous!!!!! That was a mouthful but I’m telling you he is on point.

The tree risk inspection revealed several decays spots near the base. Trees are like levers in the wind so when the wind blows and applies forces (the tree sways back and forth) and the most amount of force applied is to the base of the tree. Since decay is the weak link where trees always fail, the lower on the trunk the decay is, the more forces of wind loading are being applied makes this dangerous. WHAT!?!?

Basically if you have a tree with decay down low on the main trunk that’s a big deal and you might have to cut it down. Decay on the lower trunk means the whole tree will fall instead of just parts of the tree.

So this super tall pine tree being so tall has sooooo much leveraging forces being applied during windy times, and decay in the base and VINES!!!!

Vines create extra weight and wind loading. Trees are pretty much just giant sails in the wind and when vines hang on trees they pretty much make the sail much larger catching more wind…… catastrophe waiting to happen.

Cut your vines around the base of your trees to kill the vines and keep them from getting worse. Oh my gosh vines are the devil!!!!

So the arborist will leave this tree trunk cut about 30’ tall otherwise known as a habitat pole for birds and critters to use. He cut it short enough that one day when it falls it will not hit the house.

By the way this client is awesome. We have serviced this fantastic property for over ten years and have been watching this tree for almost that long. I love when a tree client delivers that much faith in our expertise. We love trees and love to make happy living between people and trees. We co-exist well.

For a consultation on your trees to find out if decay or vines are a problem contact or call Arbor Pros right now! Today!!!! GO!
