Arboriculture involves all season tree care, which often requires professional help to achieve.
What Is Tree Care?
Trees are one of our most beautiful and valuable assets. But urban and suburban trees experience a number of issues that need regular care. Because these trees are not living in their natural environment, caring for them seasonally is an important task – and it’s easy when you have the right partner!
RTEC Treecare offers a range of solutions such as tree removal, tree maintenance, tree trimming, and plant health care services. We always take into consideration the optimal timing for all our tree care solutions, so your trees are guaranteed to receive the best service all year round.
The Benefits of All-Seasons Tree Care
Seasonal tree care from RTEC is the best way to ensure that your trees are kept healthy all the time. With over 25 years of experience, hiring our team of professionals comes with a range of benefits:
Spring Tree Care
Spring is a great time to assess your property’s needs and come up with a game plan for the rest of the year. Homeowners might notice trees that need trimming once leaves begin to emerge. Spring is a good time to prevent fungal diseases, manage soil conditions, apply mulch, and set your landscape up for success by signing up for a comprehensive Canopy Protection Program.
Summer Tree Care
Summer is a time when many insect pests emerge in full force. Having RTEC out regularly to inspect and treat for incidental insect populations will prevent irreversible damage to your trees and shrubs. Summer is unfortunately also a time for storms. Before hurricane season starts, ensure that your trees are structurally sound, have your cables checked for wear and functionality, and have hazardous limbs removed before they cause property damage or injury. When it’s not pouring rain, it’s dry as a bone. These climatic conditions result in stress for the tree, which can be mitigated through proper watering practices and drought stress management.
Fall Tree Care
When the scent of pumpkin spice fills the air and leaves begin to fall from trees, you’ll know it’s time to start preparing your trees for winter. Provide a final boost for your trees before they go dormant by having us apply a Fall Bio-Stimulant. Fall is also a great time to apply mulch (it’s not just for the Spring!).
Winter Tree Care
The dormant season is the generally best time to prune trees. Worried that we won’t be able to tell which branches are alive and which are dead? No sweat! Our tree experts are able to differentiate between the two and can provide exceptional pruning services of all types during the winter. Winter is also a time when insect pests hunker down until spring. Treat overwintering insects during the dormant season to prevent them from emerging as soon as temperatures begin to climb next spring. Finally, the winter climate can be stressful for many evergreen trees and shrubs, so consider having us apply a treatment to relieve stress from the harsh winter weather and prevent winter burn on your evergreens.
Do You Need All Season Tree Care?
As you can see, having trees is a full-time job, but it doesn’t have to be yours. We’re committed to providing seasonal tree care for your property, so you don’t have to worry about it. The best way to ensure that you are getting seasonal recommendations for your landscape is to have a Canopy Protection Program.
