General Tree Care Services

By following the ISA Best Management Practices and the ANSI standards for tree care, we focus on pruning for health and safety and longevity of your tree. An ongoing pruning program to remove dead wood can encourage and stimulate tree growth and improve the tree’s overall health. We offer structural training, restorative pruning, preventative care, fruit tree care and pruning, topiary and cloud pruning and espalier techniques.  We work with all kinds of shrubs to promote best form, flowering or fruit production.  Our focus is treating trees in their formative years but work with trees up to 30 feet.  Our ability to offer health diagnostic and risk assessment of trees of all ages and species will result in a ‘treescription’ to regain health and safety.

Tree Removals and Alternatives

While our objective is always to retain trees or return them to healthy, useful assets, sometimes they are better removed for safety and to prevent the further spread of diseases or pests.  A Risk Assessment helps identify safety issues – we will discuss all the options including succession planting.  We address most small tree and shrub removals.  Stump grinding  available.  

Commercial Property Services

We assess commercial trees for risk and liability to companies, their employees, and their clients. We work for condominium complexes, retail and service outlets and property management companies as well as religious, medical, educational, and institutional organizations. We also offer training for in-house maintenance staff to teach employees how to maintain and care for the trees and shrubs on their commercial properties.

Trees Add Value to Your Property

We understand that a tree can add value ….  Realtor’s call on Ladybug Arborists for Pre-Purchase Inspection Reports or to ‘Spruce Up’ the yard and gardens to stage your landscaping to maximize that first impression.  We can also provide tree valuations for insurance claims like fire, vandalism, accidents, or chemical damage.

Arborist Consulting Services

Consulting services also include tree protection during construction, post-construction remedies, tree inventory for long term planning, and warranty inspections.

Landscape Planning & Inspections

The right tree in the right place can save you money over the lifetime of your tree. An important factor in designing your landscape is the correct location of key features that impact your plants in the long run. We can prepare a design for you to follow or for us to install. We also perform landscape reviews and installation inspections to ensure compliance with contract documents, landscape construction specifications, ordinances, and rules & regulations. We are happy to provide a second opinion and evaluate recommendations from other companies. 

Workshops & Public Education

We can speak on a wide range of topics regarding urban forestry (for example planting, pruning, hazard assessment, and insect & disease management). Presentations are developed with the client’s needs in mind, whether it is for homeowners or maintenance personnel. We will develop a program to suit your needs. We also offer personalized one-on-one classes, group sessions, and corporate maintenance training classes.

Let us do your dirty work!

Plant Healthcare & Fertilization

Preventive maintenance helps keep trees in good health while reducing any insect, disease, or site problems. We can also tell when fertilization is the best route for treating trees and make the appropriate recommendations. Services include deep root fertilization, mulching, soil testing and amendments, and irrigation system audits.

Insect & Disease Management

Ladybug Arborists evaluate trees using species norms, tree biology, soil science, and knowledge of regional pests and diseases. We look for signs and symptoms to determine current underlying problems affecting tree health in order to determine the best remedies and practices. Services include tree health diagnosis, treatment recommendations, bug barrier tree bands, as well as biological and cultural techniques.
