Our Alexandria, VA Tree Services
Tree Removal and Stump Grinding
Property owners may have several reasons to remove a tree near their home or business. Sometimes a tree gets too big or suffers damage from an infection or pest infestation. Some typical reasons we may need to implement tree removal on a property include:
- The tree grew too big for your property
- The tree is too close to structures like buildings, power lines, or other trees
- The tree has an active disease or fungal infection, or pest infestation
- The tree suffered damage in a storm and is no longer viable
- The tree died due to pests, infection, or damage
Our tree climbers can take a tree down in pieces, or we can perform large tree removal with a crane. We also offer stump grinding as an add-on service to grind down live stumps and prevent certain hazards, such as tripping over the stump or an infection in the stump spreading to remaining trees on your property.
Tree Trimming and Pruning
Pruning your trees regularly is essential to direct their growth pattern and ensure that the tree gets enough light and airflow through the leaves. Tree trimming can also beautify your trees and improve your home’s curb appeal while reducing hazards from low-hanging branches or branches growing into power lines.
Our tree pruning services include:
- Crown raising
- Crown cleaning
- Crown reduction or shaping
- Structural pruning
- Property protection pruning
- Hazard mitigation pruning
One of our certified arborists will inspect the trees on your property to look for structural weaknesses and potential hazards to determine the best tree trimming techniques for each tree and to determine if any trees need cabling and bracing.
Tree Health Management
We offer comprehensive tree health management plans that begin with taking soil samples from your property and a Tree Risk Assessment by one of our TRAQ-certified arborists. We’ll measure your soil’s pH, composition, and compaction to develop our custom tree preservation and management plan for your property.
We develop custom fertilizer blends and soil amendments to improve the nutrition, organic matter, and density of your soil for stronger, healthier, more beautiful trees. Our tree and shrub care experts will work with you to develop an appropriate application schedule for your custom fertilization services.
Root Health Management
Healthy roots grow healthy trees. We’ll inspect your tree root systems to determine if your trees need deep root fertilization to grow more fine root hairs or if you need soil aeration to loosen the soil around the roots and improve water penetration into the dirt around your tree.
Insect Pests and Diseases
Trees in Northern Virginia can suffer serious harm or death if infected by certain diseases or fungi or if infested with certain parasitic insect species. Common threats to trees here include:
- Spotted lanternfly
- Apple scab
- Leaf-eating caterpillars
- Boxwood blight
- Spider mites
- Scale insects
We use targeted applications of fungicides, pesticides, and horticultural oils to treat and prevent tree issues on your property.
Emergency Tree Service and Storm Damage Clean-Up
We offer 24/7 emergency tree service for removing storm-damaged trees and storm damage clean-up. Fallen trees can have hidden risks, such as downed power lines or the likelihood of rolling. Let our experts perform emergency tree removal for damaged trees on your property.
Call our 24/7 emergency tree service hotline at (703)-844-3886 to remove a damaged or fallen tree.
If you need lot clearing services for new construction of a home or commercial property, we can develop an effective clearing plan that retains as many trees as possible.
