Our subsurface watering program is designed to improve soil moisture around your trees and shrubs. An injection probe distributes water directly into the root zone, hydrating drought-stressed trees.
Our team provides a full-range of landscape maintenance services to manage the health and aesthetic appearance of your property.
Many tree problems start at the roots, and left untreated, can lead to tree failure. Certified arborists use air spades to diagnose root problems and remedy root flares. This tool reduces soil compaction while safely unveiling tree roots for arborists’ inspection.
Schedule seasonal tree risk assessments to keep your trees and home safe. Certified arborists can identify safety hazards and potential weaknesses earlier. Catching problems early is far cheaper and safer than treating advanced problems later.
Regularly pruning fruit trees helps them bear more, higher quality fruit. Have a Davey expert arborist prune your fruit trees to reap the sweet benefits of a healthier, more productive fruit tree.
Pruning palm trees helps your trees grow stronger and stay healthier. Davey assesses your tree’s pruning needs from the removal of unhealthy fronds (leaves) to disease reduction. Pruning also ensures palms better withstand tropical storms and hurricanes.
Primarily in California and Oregon, Sudden Oak Death attacks tanoak and oak trees. Look for dead sections of bark on your tree’s trunk or branches, known as cankers, or spots on the leaves. The only way to confirm Sudden Oak Death is to get it tested and treated by a certified arborist.
Our certified arborist effectively pinpoint weak limbs that need cables and braces to reduce potential risk. Professional installation strengthens weak branches and reduces tree stress caused by weather elements and heavy foliage.
