The Importance of Landscape Tree Services for Commercial Properties and Estates

The first impression people have of your grounds can significantly impact your business, reflecting how you manage daily operations and how much you care for the environment. Reap the significant benefits of lush, inviting landscaping with professional landscape tree services for your Bay Area commercial property or estate. Your investment in grounds care will deliver extraordinary benefits.

Regular Tree Pruning Supports Healthy, Vigorous Trees and Reduces Maintenance

Beautiful, tidy landscaping significantly increases the resale value of your commercial property. It attracts clients passing by, reflecting your detail-oriented, proactive approach to operating all aspects of your business. Regularly pruned trees also fare better in storms, suffering less damage and shedding fewer limbs and leaves that can pose obstacles for vehicles and pedestrians. Our commercial landscape maintenance plans meet your grounds care needs year-round, taking tree trimming tasks off your to-do list and giving you more time to focus on your business. 

Careful Shaping Provides Shade and Supports Tree Growth

Greenery offers shade for cooling and reduces solar radiation’s effects, keeping the surrounding ground up to 25 degrees cooler than pavement and other hard surfaces. This effect can dramatically impact comfort on your property and in nearby buildings, significantly reducing energy use and expense. Using trees for shade doesn’t mean you can let them grow wild, however. Proper pruning supports tree health, directing growth, and removing dying and diseased branches that negatively impact tree health.

Controlling Tree Root Growth Circumvents Damage

Preventing tree roots from infiltrating pavement, underground piping, and building foundations is an ongoing issue for any commercial property with large trees. Fortunately, root growth can be directed away from critical infrastructure with minimal impact to tree health by our skilled arborists.

Tree Selection and Placement Can Help You Tackle Water Management Challenges

Whether it’s too little or too much, Bay Area business owners frequently find themselves at the mercy of water management issues. Thoughtful tree selection and placement can be a great asset here, reducing watering needs and controlling stormwater runoff. Our knowledgeable consulting arborists can help you select and place the right tree species to address these issues, creating a long-term, proactive tree management plan customized to your grounds.

Placement and Pruning Support Airflow and Light for Surrounding Plants and Property

Our skilled arborists know that the placement and pruning of trees can serve many functions:

  • Blocking frigid winter winds
  • Allowing light to shine through the darkness to ensure nighttime safety
  • Providing air filtration
  • Effectively blocking noise
  • And more

Whatever grounds challenges you face, talk to one of our tree specialists to learn how our tree care services can help you mitigate those issues.

Regular Care Reduces the Incidence of Pests and Disease

Invasive pests can quickly take a toll on trees that don’t have a strong foundation. With routine care from our landscape service team, you can rest assured our technicians will promptly identify invasive pests. Our experienced pest control specialists use only the latest safe, environmentally friendly methods, protecting the health of your trees and the environment.

Certified Arborist Evaluations Safeguard Your Business Against Liability

Our ISA certified arborists provide detailed arborist reports featuring essential information to protect your business against liability in the event of personal injury or property damage suits and insurance claims. These reports are frequently needed to justify removing hazardous trees or to clear land for property development.

A well-kept, beautiful landscape is good for business. Maximize the benefits of your green spaces with landscape tree services for commercial properties and estates from Arborwell.

Tree Trimming Accidents Can Be Prevented by Hiring Trained Tree Care Experts

It may be tempting to trim your own palm trees to save a few bucks. But if you talk to your local fire and rescue team, they’ll be quick to tell you to think twice. Emergency personnel respond to many tree care related incidents annually. So many accidents occur, the California Department of Public Health created a video describing the risks of trimming palm trees, highlighting proper technique. Hiring trained tree care experts is crucial to avoiding palm tree trimming incidents. What typically goes wrong in a DIY palm tree trimming scenario?

Beware the Palm Frond Avalanche

When unlicensed or inexperienced tree trimmers cut palm fronds from below rather than above, fronds can pile up inside the tree rather than falling to the ground. As the fronds accumulate, they get heavier and heavier, eventually releasing in an avalanche of fronds. When they fall, they take out anything and anyone in their path, including unsuspecting tree trimmers. Fronds are quite heavy, weighing up to a hundred pounds apiece. Tree trimmers knocked to the ground and buried by the fronds can be seriously injured and suffocate under their weight, leaving home and business owners liable for injury and damages.

Trim California Palm Trees the Right Way

Licensed, insured, properly trained palm tree care professionals are essential to ensuring an accident-free pruning experience and the health of your trees. Our tree care team has the skills and equipment to get the job done right. We rely on essential tools like bucket trucks and aerial devices to trim from above (not below) fronds. Our fall protection equipment allows us to accomplish tree trimming tasks safely. We are licensed, insured, Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA) accredited, and have numerous International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) Certified Arborists and Board Certified Master Arborist on staff. You can rest assured of safe, successful pruning with our skilled services.

Is it time to prune your palm trees? Tree trimming accidents can be prevented by hiring trained tree care experts. Ensure safety and protect your business from liability with licensed, professional services. Contact Arborwell Professional Tree Management at 888-969-8733, or contact your Seattle, San Diego, Sacramento, San Francisco Bay Area, San Jose, or Oakland/East Bay Area local office to schedule tree care services today.

Fire Safety Techniques for Trees and Plants in the SF Bay Area

With over 4 million acres burned, this year’s historic fire season has been truly terrifying, leading to 31 lives lost, countless forced evacuations and massive property losses. As smoke continues to linger in the air throughout the SF Bay area, this situation has brought the need for fire mitigation measures into stark focus. While preventing all future fires is impossible, essential tree maintenance techniques could offer your business or neighborhood grounds protection, potentially reducing the likelihood and severity of wildfire damage. What fire safety techniques for trees and plants will safeguard your commercial property against fire risk?

Commercial Landscape Management Fire Safety Tips

  • Regularly remove dead materials and overgrowth
    Consistent property maintenance, including regularly pruning trees and shrubs that can provide fuel, is essential for preventing wildfires. Keep trees, bushes, and other landscaping well pruned. Clearing dead brush, grasses, leaves, and twigs is critical. Tree canopies should also be lifted at least 10-20 feet for protection against ground fires.
  • Keep trees and plants healthy
    Dry trees are dying trees. Green, flourishing trees and plants are more likely to survive a fire than neglected, pest, or disease-ridden landscaping. Our tree wellness experts can help you detect trees that are diseased or dead, identifying unusual leaf loss, wounds, pests, fungus, and other diseases that point to the need for prompt attention.
  • Trim back trees near buildings, ensuring adequate clearance
    Make sure all branches are at least 10 feet from your roof, at a minimum, removing any that overhang. Dense brush and low-hanging branches can serve as a ladder, allowing flames to climb to larger trees and nearby structures. Regularly clean your gutters and roofs, keeping them clear of flammable plant materials.
  • Make defensible space part of your landscape design
    Fires need fuel to burn. Minimizing vegetation 30-70 feet surrounding buildings decreases the likelihood of flames transferring. A clear space also offers firefighters easier access, should your building catch ablaze. If your property is in a fire prone area, our certified consulting arborists can help you devise a landscaping plan that creates a defensible space.

Preventing the Spread of Fires is a Community Effort

Landscape design and maintenance, building materials and infrastructure, and accessibility, each play a role in the spread of fire. It is up to us to work together to protect each other. How can you help safeguard your community against wildfire risks?

Reduce fire risk with these and other fire safety techniques for trees and plants from Arborwell. Schedule a property evaluation or landscape maintenance for your Napa, Livermore, Danville, Dublin, Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Morgan Hill, Fremont, or Pleasanton property.

Brush Removal Is More Important Than Ever

Wildfire season is already underway in California. Is your business doing its part to protect itself and the surrounding community? Brush removal is more important than ever. California experiences 78 more fire days today than it did 50 years ago, and statistics for 2020 are already ahead of the curve. One hundred thousand acres have already burned, 72,000 acres more than at this time last season. Proactively managing your green spaces helps reduce the incidence of these megafires, keeping people and property safe.

Protect Your Property with Regular Tree and Brush Clearing Services

Regular tree and brush removal is a crucial part of responsible land management in the Bay Area. Arborwell Professional Tree Management can help you create a defensible space around your business, preventing the spread of fire to nearby structures. We are experts at firescaping. Our ISA-certified arborists can reduce fuel for fires across your property’s green spaces, lowering wildfire risk while maintaining the beauty of your grounds.  

Tree and Brush Removal Services with the Community and the Environment at Heart

We remove only the vegetation that puts your property at risk, safeguarding your community and the environment. After a thorough evaluation, our skilled team will efficiently remove dying, dead, and fallen trees that could fuel fires, the low branches of large trees that can serve as ladder fuel, and underbrush and ground debris. We have the experience and tools to complete these tasks quickly, with minimal disruption to your business and surrounding landscaping, leaving your property neat and clean.

Firescaping Offers a Broad Scope of Benefits

In addition to limiting possible fuel sources for brush fires, firescaping provides firefighters a safe space to guard your grounds in the event of a fire. Because it eliminates hazards, reducing dense brush may also qualify you for reduced insurance premiums. Removing brush supports tree wellness, freeing up space and nutrients and controlling pests and disease. The overall result of our careful firescaping services fosters more beautiful grounds, boosting curb appeal and property value.

Safeguard your property and mitigate fire risk with regular brush removal services.

Palm Trees – Regular Maintenance is Crucial

Palm trees are an essential part of the California atmosphere, inspiring daydreams of fun in the sun. Maintaining the good looks of palm trees on your commercial property, however, is anything but a leisurely endeavor. Though routine maintenance is essential for picture-perfect palms, palm tree care is complicated. 

Most Palm Tree Species are Not Native to the Area

Despite the many varieties of palm trees in California, only the California fan palm – also known as the desert palm or Washingtonia filifera – is native. All other species are imported. Other non-native species, such as the date palm introduced by Spanish missionaries in the 18th century and other species brought here for palm gardens created by Europeans in the mid 19th century, are non-native, imported into the region as immigrants arrived in the US. 

Each Palm Tree Type is Suited to a Certain Climate

There are over 2,500 palm species worldwide. Only 11 are native to North America. They thrive in a range of climates from deserts to rain forests, each requiring specific growing conditions. Imported species, such as Mexican fan palms and Canary Island date palms, often lack essential nutrients common in their native growing environments. These deficiencies make the trees more prone to stress and disease. Even Native California fan palms present unique maintenance challenges in the current California climate. Fan palms need a great deal of water in the soil to thrive, which currently drought-prone regions across the state struggle to provide.

As many native fan palms, planted during regional beautification efforts in the 1930s, reach the end of their 75 to 100-year lifespan, some local governments are no longer replacing the trees. This is partly due to climate-related water shortages, and also to the threat of pests  such as the red palm weevil, which are making it difficult for palms to survive. For these reasons, there is a movement toward the re-introduction of native, drought-resistant plants and trees.

Palm Trees Present Many Maintenance Challenges

It may be tempting to tackle routine maintenance tasks yourself, until you consider the height of your trees. Palm tree maintenance is not for the faint of heart, including inexperienced property owners and uninsured lawn care services. Proper care requires a thorough knowledge of arboriculture and safety practices. With help from a trained arborist, you can avoid tree care injuries, alongside issues associated with improper pruning, such as:

  • Over-trimming that can weaken palms, making them more prone to storm damage
  • Improper landscaping around palms that can result in mechanical root damage from trimmers
  • Paving or using rocks around palms, which increases temperatures, burning roots, and reducing water/nutrient absorption
  • Delayed maintenance that increases fire risk and the risk of injury and damage from falling fronds and trunks
  • Suffocation by palm fronds due to improper pruning technique (pruning from below) and septic arthritis from palm tree thorn injuries
  • Excess germination of nuisance palm saplings on your commercial property

Prune your palms properly and safely with help from the Arborwell team. Contact us at 888-969-8733 to request an estimate for regular palm tree maintenance for your Hayward, San Jose, San Francisco, Oakland, Livermore, Palo Alto, or Walnut Creek property today.

Proper Watering of Bay Area Landscaping Trees

Droughts are a frequent occurrence in the Bay Area, making care for your landscaping trees a challenge. Your trees provide many benefits, delivering cool shade, improving air quality, controlling water runoff and erosion, and increasing your property value. To safeguard their health and prevent drought conditions from making them vulnerable to pests and diseases, ensuring your trees have the water they need to survive this stressful time is essential.

Large Trees Need Deep Watering At Least 1-2 Times Per Month

Any tree species accustomed to regular watering can experience stress in drought conditions. Water-loving birches, redwoods, and maples are especially at risk. During a drought, you can transition mature trees that have been surrounded by a generous layer of mulch to a regimen of deep water irrigation 1-2 times per month. However, we recommend closely monitoring your trees. When temperatures reach or surpass 95 F, more frequent watering may be necessary.

Tips for Watering Bay Area Landscaping Trees

  • Look to age and species to determine frequency
    Our ISA certified arborists  can help you determine the best watering schedule for your trees. Young, newly planted trees require more water than established trees, up to 4 times per week in the summer. Native trees, such as California oaks, need far less water than non-native species, requiring only one or two deep soaks over the summer season.
  • Install irrigation carefully to avoid trunk rot
    Concentrating water at the base of a tree can cause trunk rot. To avoid this and get better root coverage, run your drip line in a spiral from the outer edges of the tree canopy, spiraling toward the trunk. Use a soaker hose or low-flow stream rotator heads, avoiding the use of wasteful sprinklers/sprayers.
  • Time your watering to minimize waste
    When irrigating your commercial property or residential complex, it’s best to water in the early morning or after sunset to minimize water evaporation.
  • Water to the proper depth
    Unlike grass, which has shallow roots, your trees require a deeper soaking. After watering, check the soil beneath trees, verifying it is moist (not soggy) to at least 18 inches deep.

Boost Your Irrigation Efforts with Mulching

Integrating wood chip mulch as part of your drought protocol can be a fantastic aid to your watering efforts, keeping moisture in the soil longer, and reducing water consumption by 10-25%. Adding a thick, 4-6 inch layer around your trees also protects roots from any extremes of cold and heat, as well as reducing the prevalence of weeds and grass that compete for water and nutrients.

Uphold the beauty and value of your property with the proper watering of your Bay Area landscaping trees. Contact Arborwell Professional Tree Management at 888-969-8733 to request an arborist consultation on your San Jose, San Francisco, Oakland, Livermore, or Palo Alto property today.

Mature Tree Pruning

Mature Tree Pruning: Essentials for Proper Care

Mature landscape trees require meticulous care to remain healthy, structurally sound, and beautiful. Unfortunately, many well-meaning property owners unknowingly damage established trees, shortening their lifespan with improper  tree pruning techniques. Older trees have unique needs. To ensure the optimal health of large trees and maintain the aesthetics and value of your commercial property, it is crucial to learn these mature tree pruning essentials.

Proper Pruning Requires Arborist Expertise

Our arborists perform tree pruning with a thorough understanding of tree biology. We know that each cut impacts and potentially changes the growth of a tree, so no branch should be removed without good reason. Because trees store sugar within their dense crown of leaves, we are also cautious of over-trimming that could rob a tree of nutrient reserves, causing significant stress.

Reasons to Prune Your Landscape Trees

Routine thinning does not necessarily improve tree health. Instead, landscape managers should trim trees to correct existing problems or prevent issues from occurring. When should you prune your large trees?

  • Aesthetics
    Trimming can improve the form and enhance the beauty of your trees.
  • Cleaning
    Removing dead, diseased, or weakly attached branches reduces cleanup on your property and prevents potential damage and injury.
  • Thinning
    Thinning branches can increase the ability of light and air to filter through the tree canopy to the ground below.
  • Clearance
    If your trees do not leave adequate, safe clearance around landscape features such as buildings, walkways, roadways, and electric lines, it is beneficial to trim them.

When to Prune

It is safe to prune the trees on your Sacramento, Peninsula/Los Altos, Palo Alto, Burlingame, Hillsborough, or Redwood City property at any time of the year. However, our certified arborists know that trees heal better following pruning procedures performed before the spring growth flush. We avoid the heavy pruning of trees after this growth because your trees have spent a great deal of energy producing it, and heavy pruning at this time can cause significant stress, particularly in weak trees.

Our knowledgeable team understands that mature trees do not tolerate heavy trimming as well as younger trees, taking care to remove no more than 25% of the crown, or less, depending on age. When making cuts, we are mindful of making clean cuts without damaging bark, while protecting the branch collar, and subsequently, trunk tissue, upholding the tree’s ability to heal and thrive.

When trimming diseased trees, such as those with oak wilt, we know it is best to use caution. Our arborists avoid pruning during active transmission periods when the disease spreads more easily.

Avoiding Tree Pruning Dangers

Pruning large, mature trees is not a do it yourself job. It usually requires working from tall heights using power equipment. Our licensed, insured arborists have the skills necessary to manage these physically demanding tasks safely. We believe safety is no accident, using the necessary protective equipment, proper tools, and techniques to eliminate hazards on-site.

What Does Soil Drainage Have to Do with Plant Health Care?

Many plants suffer or die in soil that is too wet or too dry. Knowing what type of soil you have and how it affects the greenery on your commercial property can dramatically impact your chances of successfully growing healthy, beautiful foliage. Your soil varies depending on your region and even how your property is situated. For example, hillside properties almost always drain well, while bottomland can be extremely poor in drainage. There is also diversity in soil structure that influences soil drainage and plant health care needs.

How Your Soil Type Affects Your Plants and Trees

What do soil type and drainage have to do with plant health care? As with the value of commercial real estate, the key to plant health is often “location, location, location.” Soil drainage affects the availability of water and plant nutrients. Many commercial landscaping sites lack the ideal drainage conditions. Because each plant species has different nutrient and irrigation needs, understanding the soil type on your property can help you manage issues integral to plant health.

Common Soil Types

Do you know which of these common soil types you have on your Seattle or Bay Area commercial property?

  • Sand
    Sand particles are quite large, draining quickly. Because sand does not retain moisture or nutrients well, plants grown in this type of soil require more frequent watering and intensive plant nutrient management to ensure health.
  • Clay
    Clay particles are extremely fine, sticking tightly together when moist. Clay is packed with nutrients and holds water well, but drains poorly, making your plants prone to fungal issues. If water displaces air, your plant’s roots, which thrive on oxygen, can suffocate, and they may die. Because of its dense composition, it can be difficult for the roots of young plants to penetrate clay.
  • Silty soil
    Typically found along riverbeds and lakes, silt particles are between sand and clay particles in size. Silty soil is one of the most fertile soil types, because it retains nutrients and moisture well but drains more quickly than clay. 
  • Loam
    Loam is a mixture of sand, silt, and clay. Providing the benefits of all three types of soil, it is the ideal growing medium. Some loams possess a higher proportion of sand or clay by volume.

What Type of Soil Do You Have on Your Commercial Property?

Arborwell plant and tree health care services experts have identified these types of soil in our commercial landscape management service areas:

  • The Bay Area is fortunate to have soil made of clay with loam, including rocky clay loam in the hills and gravelly loam in the valley.
  • Seattle Area soil is primarily Tokul soil, which is quite rare. Tokul soil began as volcanic ash. It is one of the most productive soils in the world. Tokul features a surface layer of gravelly loam, rich with plant matter, a reddish middle layer infused with iron oxides, and a cemented, root limiting layer of glacial till 20-40 inches below the soil surface. Though its top layers drain well, the cemented glacial till layer has high water and precipitation storage capabilities.

Finding the Right Balance

At Arborwell, we can help you analyze your soil on your commercial property, identifying issues, and taking corrective action when necessary. Depending on the unique composition of your soil, we may need to employ solutions such as soil amendments, to correct drainage and nutrient issues impacting plant health. Because each plant species has different requirements, this can complicate the plant health care landscape. Fortunately, Arborwell experts are well-versed on the soil types in your region, expertly assessing the irrigation and nutrient needs of your plants to help you achieve the right balance.

Plant Nutrient Management in Seattle

Improve Your Seattle Property’s Soil with Plant Nutrient Management

Your plants depend on the nutrients in the soil for long-term health just as you depend on the nutrients in the foods you eat. Macro and micronutrients fuel the growth and beauty of your landscaping. However, providing your plants with a balanced diet takes care. Just as with your own diet, there can be too little – or too much – of a good thing.

A Skilled Arborist is Like a Dietician for Your Trees

With proper plant nutrient management, you can protect your trees, meeting all their nutritional needs. Providing expert soil analysis and studying the condition of the trees on your Seattle commercial property, our skilled arborists can identify nutrient deficiencies in your soil that may threaten the health of your plants, putting them at increased risk of pest and fungal diseases. We can then administer the exact amount of missing nutrients, supporting the health of your trees while preventing unnecessary damage due to the application of excess fertilizers and soil amendments.

Feed Your Soil – And Your Trees

With the right soil amendments, you can safeguard the health of your landscaping, improving resistance to pests and disease and laying the foundation for a long, healthy, beautiful life. Our knowledgeable team can help you feed your soil, creating the ideal environment for your plants and trees by:

  • Adding composted material to existing landscaping annually.
  • Utilizing compost prior to new plantings.
  • Strategically mulching to reduce the need for watering, control weeds, and feed your soil.

Avoid the Dangers of Overfeeding

The ISA certified Arborwell staff understand the importance of balance, testing your soil before composting and fertilizing to avoid the application and cost of unnecessary amendments. We know the value of naturally obtained nutrients, choosing compost, mulch, and other superior organic supplements over chemical options. Our mindful practices safeguard not only your plants, but the planet, protecting nearby soil and area waterways from the overuse of damaging chemical fertilizers.

Promote the vibrant growth of your Seattle HOA, retail, apartment, office or estate property’s landscape with plant nutrient management. Contact Arborwell Professional Tree Management at 888-969-8733 and request an arborist consultation today.
