Trees are pruned to maintain plant health, promote safety, enhance aesthetics, and to improve tree structure. When pruning we climb trees by means of rope and saddle only. The use of climbing gaffs or spikes is a totally unaccepted arboricultural practice. The damage done by doing so is oftentimes irreversible.
Shrubs are pruned to maintain plant size, improve vigor, and to remove weak and overcrowded growth.
Often considered an act against nature, there are valid reasons for tree removal. If a tree is dead, declining or deemed hazardous it should be removed as soon as these conditions are noticed. Homeowners sometimes delay the decision to remove such trees for various reasons. Such a decision can be a costly mistake. The longer they wait the more decay spreads within the tree. More decay makes the tree weaker and more dangerous for us to take down. More danger can translate into higher removal costs when trees require an aerial lift or crane to remove them.
Planting trees and shrubs adds grace and beauty to the landscape of your home or business. Trees and shrubs soften building lines and can be used to attract wildlife. Trees are nature’s natural air conditioners and can provide protection from harsh winter winds.
Trees and shrubs supplied and planted by Donovan Tree Experts are guaranteed free replacement for one year from date of installation.
We offer stump grinding services for tree and shrub stumps. Stumps are ground to a depth of 4”-8” below grade, sometimes deeper, so lawn and planting areas may be reclaimed.
Lake and mountain views can slowly disappear over time as vegetation grows. Through proper pruning these views can be reclaimed. We can also create new views either as a panorama or as view windows.
The shoreland Quality Protection Act was created to protect New Hampshire’s public water bodies. These regulations govern tree and vegetation removal on waterfront properties. We are constantly researching to be sure that we are correctly advising our clients in regards to the everchanging regulations. We can inspect your shoreland and using the state mandated point system, determine what your options are for removals.
Some trees develop weak, “V” shaped crotches that are prone to splitting. These crotches often fail during high winds or under winter snow and ice loads. The installation of support cables can help strengthen these crotches and maintain tree integrity.
Forest enhancement operations are designed to open up and expose trees and other desirable vegetation in the woodland of your property. Proper management can promote growth of natural plants such as blueberry and dogwood. In many cases clients ask that we leave a few dead standing tree trunks that will provide habitat and food sources for woodpeckers, owls and other wildlife. Each case is unique and we will work with you to devise a plan and reach a desired outcome.
Severe weather often brings down trees and limbs. When this happens we put our regularly scheduled work on hold to ensure that your property is safe and accessible. We are available 24/7 for such emergencies.
Many beautiful feature trees are destroyed by lightning every year. Lightning protection systems are an effective method of preserving and protecting such prize trees. Properly installed, the system channels the lighting charge safely to the ground without any harm to the tree. As an added benefit a properly installed system can also help prevent lightning side-flash to nearby buildings.
