3 Primary Tree Services:
STUMP GRINDING - Stump grinders can be the size of a lawn mower or as large as truck. Most accomplish their task by means of a high-speed disk with teeth that grind the stump and roots into small chips. We also contract our stump grinding services out to other tree service companies in West Michigan.
TREE REMOVAL - Most of the time we are kept busy removing entire trees that are dead or diseased therefore causing a concern with one's home or commercial business. There is a variety of minimum distances that must be kept from power wires depending on voltage; however the common distance for low voltage lines in urban settings is 10 feet.
TREE PRUNING / TRIMMING - Reasons to prune trees include deadwood removal, shaping (by controlling or directing growth), improving or maintaining health, reducing risk from falling branches, and preparing nursery specimens for transplanting. In general, the smaller the branch that is cut, the easier it is for a tree to limit the potential for pathogen intrusion and decay. It is therefore preferable to make any necessary formative structural pruning cuts to young trees, when possible, rather than removing large, poorly placed branches from mature trees.
Seasonal Secondary Service:
WINTER SNOW PLOWING - we only offer snow plowing service within the Michigan cities of Jenison, Grandville, and Hudsonville.
Michigan Tree Facts
- A healthy tree can increase your property value by as much as 27 percent while trees with dead branches, hollow cavities and other problems can decrease your property value.
- When tree pruning, do not leave long stubs or cut flush with the trunk.
- Tree roots do not grow very deep. Most tree roots are in the top 12 inches of soil so stump grinding doesn't have to go very deep.
- More than 100 different species of trees grow in Michigan.
- Winter hardiness decreases for several weeks after pruning ---- do not prune in late fall or during severe cold weather. Both can prevent the tree from healing naturally and can increase decay.
- Nearly 18 million acres, or essentially 50 percent of the land area in Michigan, are occupied by forest vegetation.
- Trees receive an estimated 90% of their nutrition from the atmosphere and only 10% from the soil.
- A tree can absorb as much as 48 pounds of carbon dioxide per year and can sequester 1 ton of carbon dioxide by the time it reaches 40 years old.
- One large tree can provide a day's supply of oxygen for up to four people.
- Trees are the largest living and oldest organism on earth.
- Tree wound paints and dressings do not help the tree --- some actually speed decay.
