Required Tree Care for the Western Suburbs of Minneapolis

Did you know that your tree care needs change depending on where you live? How you manage your slice of urban forest in the western suburbs is different from how homeowners manage their trees in Minneapolis and St. Paul. Here are the tree care services we most often recommend to homeowners in Plymouth, Wayzata, Maple Grove, and other cities in the west Twin Cities metro.

Structural Pruning for Young Trees

If you live in a newer subdivision, chances are the trees on your property are fairly young. Maybe they’re even newly planted and still require regular watering. Young trees present an exciting opportunity for you. Through regular professional structural pruning, you can guide the growth of your trees, helping them keep a strong, proportionate branch structure that provides beauty and shade for decades.

Power Line and Structure Clearance

For mature trees in more established neighborhoods, Urban Tree recommends pruning to keep your tree’s branches clear of power lines and adjacent structures. Allowing branches to intertwine with power lines or hang over your home or garage poses safety hazards in the event of strong winds or a severe storm.

Hazard Tree and Limb Assessment

However, branches do not need to be perched precariously over your property to be considered hazards. Dead branches and dying trees are more likely to fall or be uprooted by strong winds. Some species, such as silver maples, are more likely to drop branches or be uprooted than others are. We’re often called out to suburban properties to assess trees for potential hazards.

Pest Treatments

Emerald ash borer beetles, termites, yellow-bellied sapsuckers, and deer can all do damage to your trees. Insects and birds drill into the trunk of your tree, weakening it from the inside out, while deer strip off protective bark. We can recommend steps to deter pests and treatments to help a sick tree recover. In extreme cases, we may recommend pruning or even removal.

Seasonal Pruning and Maintenance

Seasonal maintenance is the key to keeping your urban forest healthy and enjoyable for years to come. Schedule your consultation with Urban Tree to assess the trees on your property. After our first visit, we’ll recommend a seasonal schedule that will help your trees grow strong and maintain their beautiful canopies. Contact Urban Tree today to schedule your consultation.

A Tree Falls in St. Louis Park . . . It’s Time to Call Urban Tree and Landscape for Emergency Tree Service

Summer weather has arrived in Minnesota, which means heat, humidity, and severe weather. Strong winds can do major damage to your property’s trees. Fortunately, most homeowners weather these storms with a few downed branches. But for the unlucky few, severe weather causes major damage to their trees and properties.

Assessing the Tree Damage

This was the case for a St. Louis Park homeowner Urban Tree and Landscape helped last summer after a major storm rolled through the Twin Cities metro area. The homeowner’s property was in an older neighborhood with beautiful, mature trees. Before the storm, the homeowner was the proud owner of about a dozen of these trees.

After the storm was a different story.

We came out to evaluate the damage after the homeowner called Urban Tree and Landscape for emergency tree service. It was obvious that there was a lot of work to do to make the property safe again. A large silver maple had large branches hanging precariously about 30 feet above the ground, and an aging crabapple tree had split nearly down the middle. A young tree in the front yard had been bent by the winds into a dangerous position over the sidewalk. Other trees on the property had lost branches, too.

Performing Tree Triage

Our first step was to remove trees and branches that posed an immediate threat. Sadly, we had to remove the crabapple tree. It was never going to recover from the damage the high winds had caused. We used chainsaws to safely remove the larger branches and process them in our chipper. Then, we used chainsaws to safely cut down the tree’s large trunk and our grinder to remove the tree’s stump.

After the crabapple tree was safely removed, we went to work on the various loosely hanging branches in the canopy of the silver maple and other trees on the property. If left as-is, these branches could have fallen and landed on the home or worse, the homeowner and her family.

Saving a Young Tree from the Chipper

Once the trees and branches that posed immediate danger had been removed, Urban Tree and Landscape went to work on the young tree in the front yard that was bent precariously over the sidewalk. We hate to remove healthy trees when we can avoid it, and this tree seemed to be a good candidate for repair, not removal.

With the homeowner’s blessing, we started the gradual process of pulling the tree back to level. We used ropes and anchors to gently encourage the tree back into place over the next few months. This process is similar to using braces to correct the alignment of your child’s crooked smile. Over time, the tree fully recovered. When we came out to inspect it this spring, it was vertical, healthy, and starting to bud.

Cleaning Up the Property

With the major tree damage mitigated, Urban Tree and Landscape started work on cleaning up the fallen branches on the ground on the homeowner’s property. We removed large debris by hand and raked up the remaining small branches and twigs and processed it all in the chipper.

The emergency tree cleanup in St. Louis Park after a major summer storm was a full day of work for the Urban Tree and Landscape team, but it was absolutely necessary to remove the tree damage quickly so it didn’t do further harm to the homeowner’s property. When the next storm hits the Twin Cities metro area and causes tree damage on your property, contact Urban Tree and Landscape to request emergency tree service.

Why removing trees by yourself could result in death or serious injury

Tree RemovalTree removal is a challenging task that requires expertise, caution and calculated moves. It may seem a simple task to some but you cannot appreciate its magnitude of the task until you are attempting it, and by then it may be too late, the unfortunate would already have happened and sadly, you may be seriously injured. To avoid injuries when removing a tree in your yard, you need to take some precautions, such as wearing safety equipment, knowing the best time to cut it or to avoid all these troubles hire a tree removal professional. Someone might tell you that removing it on your own will save some costs, but you may end up running into serious losses if it hits your house, car or other valuables. Hiring a professional in Minneapolis or Bloomington or the Twin Cities will ensure that the tree is removed carefully eliminating the dangers of hitting the house or car.

Handling tree removal tools is a challenge that people sometimes encounter. There are tools such as wood chippers, chainsaws, and ropes among other power and hand tools. All these can be dangerous when handled poorly. For example, a chain saw requires total concentration; a slight distraction can lead to cutting the tree at the wrong point or inflicting damage on yourself within a fraction of a second. When these tools are used by somebody who is not familiar with them, distractions easily happen. A slight distraction in the use of a chainsaw, as we have seen above, can cause great damage, and some of these are irreversible, you can have your whole leg or hand cut off. You can cut the tree at the wrong point making it move in an unintended direction. Given that the tree might be huge and heavy, turning it in the required direction might not be possible. This calls for professionals, people who have done this and knows the dangers of distraction and how to avoid it or if you have the courage to do it use safety protection clothes. Although we insist on the use of safety clothes, it’s important to know how to use them as this may make a difference between life and death.

Apart from the tools, the tree itself presents a real danger; because of the risk of falling in the wrong direction, poor climbing, poor support systems, or the possibility of electric lines near the spot among others. Poor handling may lead to a tree falling in the wrong direction hitting a house, car, electric poles or even a passerby. It’s important to ensure that the tree is supported well and at the same time ensure that there are no distractions when using the power or chain saw. Always consider the size of the tree, for the small ones, while using the necessary safety equipment and the right skills, you can probably handle it. For the huge one or those which are near electricity poles, houses or a road, engage a professional as the dangers are real and only an experienced person may handle it well.

As said before, tree removal in Minneapolis may seem an easy task, but the monumental task ahead could be a surprise. A professional tree remover first studies the site and the tree itself, then decides on the strategies to use to fell the tree. He will know the types of tools to use as well as the safety precautions which will be employed. You should always hire a professional, as this will ensure that the job is done well as avoid the possibilities of injuries. Get a professional in Minneapolis, Golden Valley or the twin Cities and eliminate some of the dangers that may come with felling a tree.

Climbing Cat no Longer a Bother Thanks to Golden Valley Tree Removal and Service

Two weeks ago, Urban Tree & Landscape was contacted by a customer in Golden Valley. The customer was a pet lover who needed to get rid of a tree after their cat had gotten stuck in it for about the millionth time. She called us for the Golden Valley tree removal. We met with the homeowner and looked over the tree that she wanted removed.

Tree Evaluation

The Urban Tree & Landscape team evaluated the tree and we suggested just some trimming of the taller limbs would be better than just removing the entire tree. We told the customer that the tree was healthy and it would be a shame to just remove the tree. The customer agreed and our team started trimming the larger branches until the tree was pruned and trimmed. The customer was thrilled once we were finished, because the cat stop climbing the tree and the tree was preserved. We were glad that the customer took our advice, because not only was her tree saved, but it also provided a great deal of shade to her yard and home during the hot summer months. Trees provide us with so many benefits, and often add value to properties as they age. After we let our customers know how important their trees are, then later after we perform a simple task our customers are always thankful that they listened to our advice. We are the tree service Golden Valley residents can count on for sound advice and professional service.

Golden Valley Stump Grinding Removal

To add an outdoor kitchen to his home, he needed to remove an stump that had been left by a previous owner. He hired us to stump grind it and regain the space for his new addition. He is also our customer for his lawn care and knew our team is trustworthy and does a quality job. We went to his home so he could explain what he wanted and showed us some pictures online. Our designer gave the outline to our landscapers and they began working on the natural stone patio and kitchen. The first job was to perform a stump removal in Golden Valley in the back of his yard. The next task was finally getting to to the construction portion of the landscaping project. This is where we built out the space according to the plans our designers had drawn up.

They were our previous customer and gave us a call to see what we could do. After checking out our beautiful picture gallery of our work online, they made a few changes to their design. A few of the workers came out to their home, so the customers could explain what they wanted done. We told them the shrubs could be saved and would look great after we got done with them.
