Tree Surgery in Hendersonville, NC & Henderson County
Our company provides numerous science-based tree services that are backed by scientific exploration. When it is time to carry out the job, we send out highly knowledgeable and capable tree surgeons. Commonly known as arborists, they know how to assess the status of your tree to apply the proper techniques for curing tree ailments. Keep in mind that there are extensive practices involved in the art of tree surgery. We’ll discuss a few.
The crown of a tree is considered its highest section which contains limbs and the leaves that grow from them. Tree surgery encompasses duties that deal with the crown. One of these duties is what we call crown reduction. Trees that grow too big are the ones most in need of this procedure. This is because large trees with large canopies are a threat to safety. Reducing the size of the tree crown is accomplished by pruning all the branches to equal sizes. However, deceased branches are totally separated from the tree. During a storm, dead branches pose a big risk as they could be torn off in high winds and cause damage to homes.
There are times when your tree does not show any signs of impending doom. If your goal is to improve the look of your tree, we can offer you a crown thinning service. Crown thinning focuses on the internal part of the crown. Select limbs are eliminated from the crown’s interior allowing extra light and air to flow. Crown thinning is perfect for you for the following reasons:
- You have an intense desire to maintain your tree’s current figure
- You want more sunlight to reach your plants and grass
Drooping branches can often be a nuisance if people often gather, or if cars often park under your tree. To prevent injury or having that nice paint job damaged, we have the service of crown lifting available for you. The crown is “lifted” by cutting off carefully selected branches at the tree’s lower level. Precautions are taken so that not too many are cut. If too many branches are removed, the stability of the tree could be affected. However, when done correctly, crown raising can make more space and a safer environment underneath your tree.
The structure of trees can grow in a manner that turns them into towering beings with god-like adoration. The majestic nature of some trees make it easy for them to develop imbalances. This can occur when too many branches are present in one region of the tree. A situation like this can weaken the entire tree structure as this load increasingly causes weight disproportion. As this persists, tree surgery in the form of cabling & bracing is needed to prevent a future tree disaster. Bracing uses the implementation of weaved rods or bolts. As the name suggests, these tools can be used to brace a deteriorated tree crotch or support a divided tree trunk. Rubbing branches can also be immobilized to eliminate tree exposure. As far as cabling is concerned, the goal is to remove strain experienced by larger tree limbs. To achieve this, metal cables are inserted and joined together between branches. This aids in support and reduces movement. Ultimately, the goal of cabling & bracing is to reduce injury, death and damage from a large falling branch or an entire tree.

Tree security and protecting people in Henderson County, North Carolina are our utmost priorities. The root of our success lies in tree structure analysis. It is a tool used by arborists to define and eliminate present dangers. Anyone can easily locate damaged limbs and dead leaves when searching for tree damage. However, it takes a tree surgeon with years of experience and trained eyes to perform a successful tree structure analysis.
Assessing a tree’s structure must be completed over a total of four zones. Zone 1 involves a broad tree synopsis. Zone 2 includes inspection of the bottom portions of the tree. The trunk of the tree is reviewed in zone 3. The analysis is then wrapped up by inspecting the crown of the tree in zone 4.
Upon commencing with the analysis, the assessor must select a place to stand that allows the tree to be in total view. Zone 1 inspection doesn’t involve any particular tree parts, but it does verify if the tree is leaning. If the tree is found to be leaning toward the east, this means that it’s more prone to falling down during a storm. This is because winds blow in an easterly course from the west.
Attention is turned to the bottom of the tree as we approach the second zone. At this stage, the tree surgeon will study the roots to determine their health and anchoring capacity. Unhealthy roots spell upcoming trouble for the tree.
The tree trunk is brought into focus during zone 3 inspection. Because it is the trunk that provides overall support, this is one of the most important parts of tree structure analysis. Trunks with sections where the bark is absent are evidence of tree death in those areas. Trees that have two trunks (known as co-dominant trees) are very unique and dangerous at the same time. Due to their growth pattern, they are innately weak. As they grow, their risk for failing increases. However, this can be remedied with cabling.
In zone 4, we concentrate on the crown. In this final part of the inspection process, the mission is to find and cut away dead branches. After finishing the inspection in this last zone, the analysis of the tree structure is complete and the surroundings are that much safer.
