Here we are planting a tree that was requested for tree removal in Oakville. We were able to find a new home for it where it can live for 100 years in the open. Good job Zack.

This was very technical and a lot of fun. The tree was dead and risky to take down because the wood was so soft and crumbly. This is a great pic to see us in action.

Title: Emerald Ash

By: A. Pasma, 2010-08-23 20:59:37

Just to note to residents, that on 1 week of quoting in the Oakville, and Mississauga area, every ash tree for discussion was infected. This puts the life of the tree to approximately 3 more years. It is hard for residents to tell if their tree has this bug. They leave behind a D shaped hole. It looks exactly like this D . A capital D. If they are in the upper branches it can be hard to see. If they are in an upper branch, the limb can be removed, however most of the time, the tree goes un noticed until the branch is dead. When the bug is in the trunk of the tree there is noting that can be done, other than remove the tree to prevent future spread of the Emerald Ash Boer.

Title: Hazardous Trees out of the blue

By: A. Pasma, 2010-08-05 21:51:54

In the last 2 days we have done 2 full day emergency jobs. Yesterday we were working on a bitternut that had split and snapped in half. There was no wind, rain, lightening or other elements that would normally contribute to the hazards. This tree appeared to be healthy to the residents but woke up to the large tree half between their house and their neighbours. When A-Star inspected the tree afterwards mushrooms and spore growth was located at misc. points on the truck which represents soft rotten wood. This situation luckly caused no damage but could have bee prevented with havinga certified arborist inspection. Today we were working on a scheduled linden prune which was one of the largest lindens we have ever seen. Once our lead climber entered the dense canopy preparing to tie of his safety line a large crack, or split was located between the two main trunks that went approx 5 ft below the connection. This is a sign of weak included bark. This is when a branch or two trucks connections to each other are sub par. This split was moving in the wind and flexing approx 3 inches. This could not have been seen from the ground through the leaves. This tree will be saved by having a threaded rod drilled through the tree and tightened with two bolts, and washers. This will hold the split together, while a dynamic rope system installed in the upper crown will prevent the tree from swaying and passing a hazardous point. This property backs onto the hamilton bay harbor where the winds are higher and the trees seem to bigger that most places in Oakville, Mississauga and the rest of Burlington. These few days have really reminded me of safety being a priority, before beauty.
