Fall Tree Care

Fall is the best time to identify health and safety problems.  If tree service is needed, action can be taken before damaging winter storms hit. Topping the list for Fall Tree Care are tree trimming, cabling weak limbs and hazardous tree removal. Giroud’s ISA Certified Arborists have the knowledge and experience to evaluate the condition of your trees and determine what actions are essential for Fall.

The following are warning signs that tree service is needed:

  • Excess deadwood
  • Leaves change color or fall off before other trees of the same type
  • Decay such as cankers or mushrooms
  • Signs of insect activity such as borer holes in the trunk
  • Brown leaves remain on the branches after other leaves have dropped

Here are the top Fall Tree Service actions:

  1. Hazard Inspection: Have Giroud check for hidden dangers such as weak limbs, unstable root systems and other structural hazards.
  2. Tree Trimming: Make your trees safer and more beautiful by: removing dead limbs, reducing weight and increasing stability.
  3. Cabling: Help prevent broken limbs and split trunks by installing a cable or bracing rods.
  4. Fertilize stressed trees: Stimulate root growth in stressed trees and lawns with our custom fall fertilizers. Applications must be done before the ground freezes.
  5. Treat destructive pests: Hemlock and Spruce Gall Adelgids and Spider Mites are treated now through October. If Birch Leaf Miners, Lace Bugs or Aphids were a problem last Spring, get a Merit injection now.
  6. Tree Removal: Remove unsafe trees and ugly stumps.
