Title: Pruning your Apple Trees

By: A. Pasma, 2011-03-21 22:02:57

Now is the time to prune the suckers and branches off your apple and some fruit trees. The branches and twigs can be pruned until the buds break. We are really enjoying seeing some really interesting apple trees that private properties have.

Title: Power Line Safety Course

By: A. Pasma, 2011-03-20 21:27:09

Adrian is taking a 3 day course with the Infrastructre Health and Safety of Ontario. During this course we are required to physically climb trees around power lines and use forestry trucks around power lines. There are numerous hours of in class training and learning procedures on how to handle the hydro calls and hold offs of power when working around power lines. Working on trees around power lines has its challenges, but with proper awareness most common problems can be resolved.

ISA and the Canadian Tree Fund at Canada Blooms

Title: ISA and the Canadian Tree Fund at Canada Blooms

By: A. Pasma, 2011-03-20 21:21:04

I had the opportunity to sit at the ISA and Tree Funds booth at Canada Blooms last week. It was a great event with lots of people. It is always fun being on the other side of the crowd with more room. There was another man with me who I learned alot from. You learn everyday and take every conversation with mental notes. It was pleasing to talk to the public and answer any questions that they had regarding trees and arboriculture. I am going to the Green Living Show during April, and look forward to seeing the great volunteers and organizers.

Storm Damage

Title: Storm Damage

By: A. Pasma, 2011-03-10 15:24:53

Here is a close up example of a tree failure. Apparently this crack took 2 years until this picture. It started off at only 1 inch. If this was the case, it should have been bolted together with a rod, or 2. The canopy should have been pruned and thinned out. There also should have been a cable installed to prevent the two limbs from reaching a breaking point. However, with all these preventative ideas, mother nature can sure put a twist on things.

Title: Radio Dispatch

By: A. Pasma, 2011-03-09 18:25:28

All staff is now radio dispatch with personal mike systems. Each person can have direct connections with others and office without having to place phone calls. This will be handy when we are doing tree removals and tree prunings in large canopy trees or are to high for clear conversations from tree to ground or ground to tree. Once a phone call is placed to the office, any staff member needed for converation involvement is only a second away.
