Title: January is the perfect time to think about your trees!

By: A. Pasma, 2013-01-14 14:35:24

Hi Everyone! We hope everyone had a nice holiday season. We would like to take this opportunity to remind you all that the winter months are the perfect time to work on your trees. It is best to prune fruit trees in the winter, when they are dormant. Its also the perfect time to get that tree removed or even pruned, so that when Spring arrives, you can focus all of your attention on your landscaping and other outdoor work. Take care of your trees now, and it means less to worry about in the spring, less wait times for work to be completed, and less mess. Give us a call today for a free quote!

Title: Trees aid in flood prevention

By: A. Pasma, 2012-11-07 10:56:13

With the recent events of Superstorm Sandy, its hard not to notice all of the damage fallen trees have left. However, studies have shown that trees aid in flood prevention both in forests and in an urban setting. The tree roots help push the soil grains apart, which creates pore spaces into which the water can flow. They also create an obstruction for the water as it flows across the surface. This obstruction helps to slow the flow of the water down, allowing for more time to soak into the ground. Leaves of a tree play a part as well, decreasing the force at which the rain water hits the ground, causing less erosion in the process. Many U.S cities, including New Orleans, are now looking to re-establish green space in some of their most environmentally sensitive areas. Re-foresting not only adds to the protection against changing climates, but increases air quality, and provides an excellent place for outdoor recreation.

The Town of Oakville is shutting down a few of the woodlots over the next couple weeks, in order to clean up the trees. There are many Ash trees that will need to be removed due to the Emerald Ash Borer. These trees are either dead, or dying and can become a hazard.

While we ended up being quite lucky in comparison to the USA, we still suffered some storm damage due to Hurricane Sandy. Attached, is a picture of one of the many emergency tree removals we were called in to clean up. Just a reminder, if you notice you have a tree on your property with a crack down the truck, or what looks like weak limbs, give us a call. It's better to be prepared.
