Jamaican Me Crazy… Mon!

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.

“Cone-ing Down” The Real Cut

Lightning struck and dead pine tree must go so here’s a little taste on how to safely remove a very dead tree in tight work zone. As with every case and every tree job, Safety is number one. When a tree dies it becomes dry and brittle and a tree climber cannot exert rigging forces on the tree. Basically we cannot catch the tree top off of itself because the tree will break. This is a great reason to call tree service sooner than later when a tree dies because prices will go up as risk goes up. Arbor Pros can assist with dead tree removal.

Glory Laurel

Video titled “Glory Laurel” but we are actually pruning a laurel oak tree in north Florida. This day doing tree work was glorious and the tree, elder in age, with an overextended limb over the roof. Older trees overextending over your roof is not good. We pruned this tree in an effort to minimize length and weight from this one limb by making a large reduction cut. The client has been educated that the tree is nearing end of “safe” life span and due to the species, which is known to be short lived and prone to decay, will need to be removed in a few years.
