Tree Pruning & Trimming

Different types of pruning are done for different reasons, but all pruning takes into consideration the final shape, structural integrity, and overall health of the tree. Depending on your needs and the condition of your tree, our ISA Certified Arborists will recommend the type of pruning that will be most beneficial for your tree.

Properly pruning your trees increases their health by 20%. Neglecting to prune your trees often may lead to various landscape issues, such as diseases and infection. At Riverbend Tree Service, we adhere to all ANSI A300 Standards and assure that our professional tree pruning services will improve the health and appearance of your trees. Our arborists offer industry-standard tree pruning that not only maintains your trees but also improves your safety.

There are many providers in Northern Virginia who say they can "prune your trees". But they're not all equal. Always look for a company with ISA Certified Arborists on staff and ask to see proof of general liability insurance specifically for tree work, as well as workers' compensation insurance.

Hazardous Tree Pruning

WHY? When branches are decaying or declining, they pose an imminent danger to you and your family. For example, dead branches close to the house, street, or patio/playground can be a major safety hazard. Trees may also have been damaged due to high winds, snow or ice loads, lightning strikes or construction activities.

WHAT? Our team offers on-call emergency hazardous reduction pruning services that can help you maintain your trees and keep you safe.

IMPORTANT NOTE - If you're experiencing a tree emergency, don't wait!

“Last week I called Logan about 2 dead pine trees and my protective deer fence that was damaged. He was there with a crew within an hour – cut down and hauled away the two pine trees and put up a new deer fence for us. The fence is even better than the original! Logan is dependable, fast, and his prices are very fair. We highly recommend him.”

Patricia P

“A BIG thanks to Logan Jones and crew! When a tree came down the other night, crashing on top of our neighbor’s car (ugh!). I called Logan and within a couple of hours, they had the tree cut up, hauled away, and everything cleaned up. He was also able to fix our fence, although the car didn’t fare as well. Just a fantastic job!!!!”

Tree Health Management

Regular "Checkups" Keep Your Trees Healthy

And Save You Money ...

And Save You Money ...

Some signs of insect or disease problems, structural issues, or nutrient deficiencies are easy to recognize.

However, many tree health problems aren't obvious and can be difficult to diagnose without having an in-depth understanding of tree biology, soil chemistry, insect identification and lifecycles, or bacterial and fungal diseases. Because the timing of treatment and prevention efforts is critical, missing signs of possible infestations or infections can put the survival of your trees at risk.

That's why regular tree inspections by an ISA Certified Arborist are invaluable. Tree issues can be identified and dealt with before they become a serious problem, saving you money in the long run - and possibly saving your trees as well.

Tree & Shrub Fertilization

Fairfax and Loudoun counties have many areas with clay soils, as well as recently-developed areas with disturbed and compacted soil or where poor-quality fill has been added. All of that contributes to soil that's missing essential nutrients and makes it impossible for your trees or shrubs to thrive.

Our tree healthcare experts can identify any nutrient deficiencies or soil problems affecting your plants. This information is used to recommend options that will improve the health of your soil and trees.

We create custom-blended fertilizers that are tailored specifically to the needs of your trees and shrubs, and are appropriate for your landscape conditions.

We're always careful to apply fertilizers correctly and at the right time. This minimizes runoff (to protect our wetlands and waterways), avoids "burning" plants or forcing tender new growth at the wrong time, and gets the nutrients to where they're needed most - to the root system.

Insect & Disease Management

Northern Virginia is home to a wide range of insect pests that attack trees. Plus, our more moderate climate makes it easier for many tree diseases to spread quickly.

Left untreated, many of these insects and diseases will cause your trees to decline, decay, and eventually die.

Treatment Options

Our team offers a comprehensive insect and disease management program that can help prevent many of the worst tree problems.

We also offer immediate treatments that control existing insect infestations and bacterial or fungal diseases to prevent them from causing further damage to your trees.

Where possible, we prefer to use organic or low-impact pesticides that minimize harm to beneficial insects and other wildlife.

Some treatments require spraying your trees with a high-pressure sprayer (such as when applying horticultural oil). Others are injected directly into the tree or into the soil around the tree.

We will always let you know what kind of treatment we recommend, how it will be applied, and why we think that's the best option.

We are properly licensed by the state of Virginia to apply chemicals used to treat tree and landscape problems (pesticide business license). Our registered technicians and commercial applicators are also licensed by the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS), ensuring that all tree health treatments are done according to professional safety standards to protect your health and the environment.

Root System Health

Strong, healthy roots are critical to the wellbeing of your trees. Roots help stabilize a tree (so it doesn't fall over during a storm), absorb and store nutrients and energy to support the tree, and take up water that's then transported throughout the entire tree.

Unfortunately, roots can be damaged by nearby construction or landscaping projects, soil compaction, drought, pests and diseases, chemicals, and more. Over time, damaged roots lead to the decline (and possible death) of the tree.

Our Certified Arborists provide high-quality tree root system treatments that encourage root development and rejuvenate tree roots when they aren’t receiving adequate nutrition. These treatments use a combination of ingredients to stimulate root growth, such as beneficial bacteria, humic acid extracts, soluble sea kelp, yucca plant extracts, amino acids, and natural sugars.

Over the years, we've developed our root rejuvenation program so that it's highly effective at:

  • improving soil aeration,
  • decreasing compaction around a tree’s roots, and
  • increasing the tree's ability to absorb water and nutrients from the surrounding soil.

As a result, your trees will be healthier, stronger, and more resistant to attack by harmful bugs, fungi, and bacteria.

Early identification of insect damage, infections, and soil problems is critical

 

Don't wait until it's too late to save your tree! Call the ISA Certified Arborists at Riverbend Tree Service as soon as you notice anything unusual.

Storm Damage & Fallen Tree Removal

We'll Quickly Get Things Back To Normal

We'll Quickly Get Things Back To Normal

Whether it's due to a hurricane, tornado, summer thunderstorm, or another unexpected event, fallen and broken trees can put everything on hold until they're safely removed.

Storm cleanup is definitely not a DIY job. Leaning, split, uprooted, and otherwise damaged trees are under enormous stresses that make them react in highly unpredictable - and extremely dangerous - ways. Please, do NOT attempt to cut down or remove a storm-damaged tree yourself!

Fallen & Hazardous Tree Removal

When trees fall or sustain massive damage from a storm, they become exceptionally unstable. Often, they cannot be removed without heavy equipment and skilled equipment operators who can safely manoeuver the tree parts away from your home.

When a tree falls on a house or other structure, a car, or on a sidewalk, driveway or road, it needs to be removed quickly. Whether it's on private property, a public roadway, commercial property, or within an HOA, the ISA Certified Arborists at Riverbend will swiftly clear the tree away so you can regain access and begin any necessary repairs.

Hazardous trees include those that have:

  • split apart at the trunk
  • developed a large crack in the trunk or on big branches
  • large branches that have broken and are hanging in the tree
  • started leaning, or are leaning more than before
  • roots pulling out of the ground, cut away, or damaged
  • large rotten areas (this may not always be visible)
  • power lines or wires caught in the branches

If you notice any of these issues after a storm (or at any time), give us a call ASAP to schedule a tree inspection. If the tree is deemed hazardous, it should be removed right away.

In an emergency, always call us at 703-963-3938, rather than using the online form to request an estimate.

Storm Damage & Debris Cleanup

When trees are uprooted, broken branches are hanging from wires and littering the ground, or yard structures and furniture have been sent flying in all directions, you can count on Riverbend to clean up the mess.

With our experience and specialized equipment, we can safely cut up and quickly remove large trees and branches. We'll gather and dispose of the debris so you can get back into your yard without tripping over dangerous objects.

Our ISA Certified Arborists can also inspect your remaining trees to see whether they pose a risk during future storms, and recommend corrective actions that can prevent further damage.

“I've used Riverbend three times for tree removal, tree trimming, and land clearing, and each time I've been so impressed. Their estimates are quite reasonable, and their crews are quick, highly skilled, and absolutely meticulous about cleaning up at the end of the job.”

Katie S.

“Riverbend is the best tree service we have ever used. They are very professional. They remove trees quickly and clean up any debris from their work. The price is reasonable for the quality work they perform. This is the 3rd time we have used them and have not been disappointed. ”

Crane Services for Tree Removal

Some trees are either too big or too dangerous for our climbing crews to safely climb and remove with regular methods. Other trees are located to close to buildings or public areas and can't be safely dropped in the available space.

For these trees, we use our specialized crane equipment run by an experienced crane operator. This crane quickly lifts and moves large sections of trees to an area where the tree can be safely cut apart and disposed of.

Using a crane allows us to remove large and dangerous trees while also reducing risks to your property and our crew.

Hazardous Tree Removal

Whether it's due to storm damage, poor growing conditions, insect infestations or diseases, trees can become unstable and pose a hazard to people and structures around them. It's important to carefully inspect dangerous trees and determine the best way to remove them while minimizing the risk of damage to anything nearby.

Our ISA Certified Arborists are specially trained to assess hazardous trees and are experienced at safely removing dangerous trees throughout the northern Virginia area.

Stump Grinding

When a tree is cut down, you're left with a tree stump. Many customers choose to have us remove the tree stump when we're finished with a tree removal job.

Stump grinding involves grinding down the stump to approximately 12 inches below the soil surface. We also grind out the tree’s surface roots within three feet of the stump.

After the stump is fully ground, we use the grindings to fill the hole that's left behind by the stump grinding process.

“Riverbend‘s team of professional tree removal personnel came out and make short work of a 70-foot tall tree that had died and was in danger of falling on our house. Even though the work was close to the house they were able to professionally and cleanly bring it down without any danger to our home. They are a skilled team and I would highly recommend them and I will use them again the next time I have a need for tree and limb removal.”

Joe M.

“I just had 1 tree removed with stump grinding but the price was lower than others and the service was fantastic! Highly recommended to anyone going forward. Thanks for a job well done.”
