    • Your tree appears too close to power lines
    • Branches are close or are touching your home
    • You see dead, unsightly or loose hanging branches
    • Your trees have not been trimmed or pruned in the last three years

    Lightning Protection for Trees

    We use heavy gauge copper cables to divert damaging lightning safely away from your tree into a buried ground rod.

    Our tree protection system also includes a fuse that monitors the tree. So, when lightning strikes, we will be alerted if the tree was hit.

    Tree Cabling & Bracing

    We use flexible steel strand cables and braces to reduce stress damage on your tree from severe weather. By installing cables, you are strengthening weak tree branches or limbs.

    Start protecting your investments, and call 703.955.3866 to schedule a consultation or send us a message.

    At the end of the day, a proper fertilization regimen is critical to the overall health and beauty of your lawn. So, don’t waste time going through the long process of trial and error!

  • A beautiful, healthy lawn starts with the roots. Your local Alexandria lawn care professionals provide core aeration and overseeding services to rejuvenate and heal your lawn from excessive drought and foot traffic.

    What is Core Aeration?

    Core aeration is a process of using a specialized aeration machine with small hollow tines to remove “cores” of soil to help air, water, and fertilizer penetrate deep into the soil. It also helps control thatch in your yard, which prevents nutrients from reaching your soil and roots.

    Benefits of Core Aeration:

    • Reduce soil compaction
    • Enhance soil water absorption
    • Improve fertilizer intake
    • Breaks down thatch
    • Reduce heat and drought stress

    Call 703.955.3866  to learn more about our lawn aeration services.

  • Controlling grubs before they damage your lawn requires proactive, routine inspections of the turf and soil.

    Your local Davey lawn expert will inspect your turf and soil to identify signs of a potential grub, insect or pest infestation.

    If an infestation has occurred, we will develop a customized plan that targets the grubs and pests in your yard.

    Call 703.955.3866 to have a local Davey arborist visit your property for an inspection.

    • We had a lot of trees removed (11). Your crew was professional, cleaned up at the end. Thanks to Zana for setting up the work, and the foreman David was equally as good, especially with interfacing with me.
