We’re now in the season of lawn maintenance and tree maintenance here in Benton City. There are so many possibilities of how to plant, shape, and maintain your yard and the trees and shrubbery in them. If you have questions about trees, we are an excellent resource. We are fully accredited arborists in Benton City and there are only a handful of us here in the area.

Here are some of the more common questions we receive:

  • There is construction going on near my trees, should I be concerned? Yes, it is important to protect tree roots.
  • How do I prune fruit trees? Fruit tree pruning involves using different techniques than you would usually use on landscape trees, in order to encourage fruit production and make it easier to pick.
  • The utility company pruned the trees on my street, and now they look ugly – is there a better solution? We enjoy the benefits of trees, but we also need safe reliable delivery of electricity.
  • Your utility has a tough job making trees and utility lines co-exist. While they should prune to correct standards, some trees under power lines really are better off being removed and replaced with a better tree.

We’re now in the season of lawn maintenance and tree maintenance here in West Richland. There are so many possibilities of how to plant, shape, and maintain your yard and the trees and shrubbery in them. If you have questions about trees, we are an excellent resource. We are fully accredited arborists in West Richland and there are only a handful of us here in the area.

Here are some of the more common questions we receive:

  • The roots of my tree keep coming up in my yard and I run over them with the lawnmower. Can I do anything about this? While you can remove small roots, be careful not to injure the tree. Better yet, make a bigger mulch circle.
  • I think that tree roots have broken into my sewer line. What should I do? Roots will most certainly take advantage of any existing break, crack, or separation in a line of sewer pipe, but they can’t initiate a break. The problem is with your pipes, not the tree. You might try a copper sulfate treatment.
  • My tree looks sick, what can I do? Contact us!

If you have questions about trees, we are an excellent resource. We are fully accredited arborists in Richland and there is only a handful of us here in the area.

Here are some of the more common questions we receive:

Is it safe for a homeowner to stand on a ladder and run a chainsaw? Basically, no – you should call in a professional.

Should I use tree wound paint after I make a pruning cut? No, tree wound paint has no benefit to the tree and could inhibit the tree’s recovery from the pruning wounds. My tree is too big for me to prune myself, how can I find a good arborist? Only hire someone who is a Certified Arborist, like us.

If you have questions about trees, we are an excellent resource. We are fully accredited arborists in Pasco and there are only a handful of us here in the area.

Here are some of the more common questions we receive:

  • My tree is too big, should I “top” it? No, topping is one of the worst things you can do to a tree – it will only make the tree more hazardous.
  • When should I prune my trees and how do I do it? The best time to prune hardwood trees is when they are dormant. Some flowering trees you may want to prune right after flowering. Conifers may be pruned any time of year, but pruning during the dormant season may minimize sap and resin flow from cut branches.
  • My tree was damaged in a storm. Can I save it? Maybe; it depends on the age of the tree and the extent of the damage. The best thing is to not make matters worse by pruning it incorrectly.

If you have questions about trees, we are an excellent resource. We are fully accredited arborists in Kennewick and there is only a handful of us here in the area.

Here are some of the more common questions we receive:

  • What can I do to give my new tree a good start? Water and mulch are two of the best things for new trees. Just be sure to not overdo either. You can drown or suffocate your tree.
  • Why do trees change color? A combination of factors causes change. Shorter Fall days and cooler nights cause trees to stop producing chlorophyll and allows the true colors of the leaves to be seen.
  • How can I get grass to grow underneath my tree? Trees and turf have different water requirements. If you gave grass underneath a tree all the water it needs, you would kill the tree. Trees with lawn or turf do best when surrounded by mulch.

  • Are trees a good investment? Yes – better than the NYSE! Research conducted here in the Pacific Northwest by the USDA Forest Service shows that for every one dollar invested in trees, $2.50 worth of benefits is returned.
  • What kind of tree should I plant in my yard? The right tree in the right place. Consider the location you want to plant before you decide on the species. A good website to learn about example of trees or learn about different trees you can plant can be found at: https://toptreellc.com/june-2017-new-tree-planting-part-1/
  • How do I plant a tree? Choose the location and species carefully and thoughtfully, and then plant it properly. https://toptreellc.com/plant-trees-select-right-time-year-part-1/

We have a couple times of year where the wind in Burbank gets a little out of control. During this windy weather, we also get a fair share of rain. When and if the time comes where you need to take proactive action to prevent damage to your property, we would love to help. We look forward to helping you prevent any damage possible.

Removal
Although tree removal is a last resort, there are circumstances when it is necessary. Professionally trained arborists can help decide whether or not a tree should be removed and possess the skills and equipment to safely and efficiently remove trees. Removal is recommended when a tree:

  • is dead, dying, or considered irreparably hazardous
  • is causing an obstruction or is crowding and causing harm to other trees and the situation is
  • impossible to correct through pruning
  • is to be replaced by a more suitable specimen
  • should be removed to allow for construction

With proper maintenance, trees can add aesthetic and economic value to your property. Poorly maintained trees, on the other hand, can be a significant liability. For more information on mature tree care, contact your local ISA Certified Arborist.

Pruning
Pruning is often desirable or necessary to remove dead, diseased, or insect-infested branches and to improve tree structure, enhance vitality, or reduce risk. While pruning has many benefits, the removal of live branches creates a lasting wound. No branch should be removed without a reason. The removal of large limbs on a mature tree requires careful consideration.

Pruning large trees requires special equipment, training, and experience. If the pruning work requires climbing, the use of a chain or hand saw, or the removal of large limbs, the use of personal safety equipment, such as protective eyewear and hearing protection, is a must.

Arborists can assist in performing the job safely and reducing the risk of personal injury and damage to your property. They can also determine which type of pruning is necessary to maintain or improve the health, appearance, and safety of your trees.

Soil Management
Soil management is another important aspect of mature tree care. Urban landscape trees often exist in soils that lack the nutrients, pH (acidity or alkalinity), drainage, or pore space (air and water space) needed for growth and development. Proper fertilization based on plant needs can correct many deficiencies that limit growth. Sometimes soil nutrients may be sufficient, but soil pH levels may prevent plant uptake. In this case, soil amendments, such as sulfur, lime, and even some mulches, can alter soil chemistry and help alleviate plant stress.

Drainage systems or grading can help correct saturated soil conditions, although trenching or earthmoving activities within the tree’s root zone may cause more harm than good. Compacted soils can be tilled mechanically or with compressed air to increase porosity and encourage root growth. Care must be taken when loosening soil under the drip zone to avoid root damage.

When dealing with a mature tree that provides considerable benefit and value to your landscape, it is worth the time and investment to have the soil tested for nutrient content and texture. An arborist can arrange to have your soil tested at a soil testing laboratory and recommend treatments based on the results.

Mulching
Mulching can reduce environmental stress by providing trees with a more moderate root environment that has fewer temperature and moisture extremes than the surrounding soil. Mulch reduces competition from weeds and grass and prevents mechanical damage by keeping lawn care equipment away from the tree’s base. Mulches made from plant matter, such as shredded leaves, pine straw, peat moss, or composted wood chips, will add nutrients to the soil as they decompose and help improve overall soil biology.

To be most effective, mulch should be placed 3 to 5 inches deep and cover as much of the root system as possible. (Roots can extend as far as 3 or 4 times the diameter of the branch spread of the tree.) When placing mulch, care should be taken not to cover the actual trunk of the tree. A mulch-free area around the base that is 2 to 3 inches wide is sufficient to avoid overly moist bark conditions.
