Property managers are responsible for the aesthetic and financial condition of the properties entrusted to their care. Trees are a major part of a site's appeal and property value.

Tree pests and diseases are a tough issue in property management tree care. If left untreated, pests like Spring & Fall Cankerworm, Eastern Tent Caterpillars or Gypsy Moths can weaken or kill a tree. More exotic insects -- like the Emerald Ash Borer or the Asian Long-Horned Beetle -- can devastate entire tree populations.

Diseases like Oak Wilt and Fireblight threaten to do the same.

When pests or disease attack a tree's natural immune system, the life span of the tree is shortened... possibly adding to increased expenses and headaches at a property manger's site.

Advanced Tree Care experts are available to accurately assess trees to identify problems and develop an appropriate care plan. Non-chemical controls are usually suggested as the first line of defense -- besides being environmentally responsible, they allow a tree to fight issues naturally, which improves its overall health. When the tree is unable to fight the pests or disease in more extreme cases, chemical options may be recommended to speed up the recovery process.

Advanced Tree Care's professional consulting solutions are designed to reduce a property manager's workload, with arborists providing proactive feedback and communication and valuing long-term relationships with property managers, their sites, and their management company.

Please contact us. Our specialists look forward to answering your property management tree care questions and providing solutions appropriate for each of your sites.

Property managers, whether they oversee community associations, apartment complexes, home owner associations, or rental properties, have to deal with tree care issues.

The problem is, many property managers and management companies are not tree experts . What is a cost-effective way to address property management tree care?

The answer: teaming up with a company staffed with knowledgeable and certified arborists, like Advanced Tree Care.

Neglected and untreated trees get too big and potentially grow unhealthy. Curb appeal, resident's enjoyment, and property values increase with proper tree maintenance.

The Tree Management Plan from Advanced Tree Care is a comprehensive service that includes an inventory and assessment of a site's entire tree population. The assessment is used to develop a 3-5 year Management Plan that can be tailored to your site's specific budget objectives.

If the Tree Management Plan is fulfilled by the Advanced Tree Care team, the site received cost savings, as the fee for the Tree Management Plan is credited against the prescribed services rendered. If the property manager prefers, the Management Plans can be used as a tool when requesting quotes from other vendors. 

Property managers have a long list of responsibilities. Advanced Tree Care's professional consulting solutions are designed to reduce a manager's workload, as arborists offer regular feedback and communication.

Valuing long-term relationships, Advanced Tree Care's certified arborists are available for general, site specific, tree specific consultations. With an acute understanding of Canadian weather and extreme winters trees must endure, property managers can rely on the expertise of a certified arborist.

Please take the first step and contact us. Our advanced tree care specialists look forward to answering your property management tree care questions and serving you and the residents at your sites.

As a rental property owner, one of your goals should be to make your rental property a place where tenants want to stay a long time and are willing to pay what you ask without a problem. Accomplishing this goal means you need to take great care of the property, which includes quite a few aspects such as plumbing, roofing, flooring, landscaping, and more.

Having trees on your property is a great way to provide natural shade and beauty, but it also requires regular maintenance. Using tree care in Richmond Hill is an ideal way to improve your rental property.

Improve Curb Appeal

An unkempt tree will make a home look uninhabited, which is not the kind of look you want in a rental property, especially when you are in the process of trying to get it rented. Tree service professionals can make your tree and property look great while also making sure it is free of pests and diseases.

Ensure a Safe Space

If a tree is not trimmed and properly maintained, there is a chance that branches could break off during heavy winds or in a storm. Falling branches can cause severe damage to both people and property, so you want to do everything you need to do to prevent this from happening.

Routine tree service is an ideal solution to reduce the chance of branches falling.

Eliminate Tenant Responsibility

Although your tenants may not mind taking care of a tree on your rental property, they do not need to be responsible for maintaining a fully grown tree. Eliminating tenant responsibility makes living at your rental property a more pleasant experience, which is one factor that can lead to a longer tenancy.

While having a tree on your rental property may seem quite simple and easy to maintain, there are a lot of details that must be considered to ensure it has a positive effect on the home.

Getting the best professional tree care for your tree pruning, cutting, or removal needs ensure you won't endure any unforeseen issues. It is also a way to know you are getting the finest quality work on your land. Before hiring, here a few questions to ask.

Can I See a Few Things?

Don't be shy about asking for proof of insurance, a list of references, and what their credentials are. A professional tree care business will readily and happily provide these documents for you and answer any additional questions you have.  

How Long Will the Job Take?

Get, at the very least, a rough idea of how long it will take the business to complete the job. It could vary from just a few hours to several days depending on how involved the project is.

Can I Get an Estimate?

Steer clear of any business that will not give you a written estimate of the job before the job. You don't want to end up surprised with additional costs you weren't prepared for.

Is the Crew Safe?

Ask if the business uses hard hats and other important equipment to keep crew members safe on the job. You don't want an employee of the business getting hurt on your property, especially if they don't have proper insurance. Additionally, hiring a business that protects their crew members shows they have a vested interested not only in their employees, but also your land and keeping your property safe as well.

Having trees on your property can really improve the appearance, but these trees can also make the property look worse or be a safety risk if the tree is not in healthy condition. Getting routine tree service is the ideal way to prevent problems like this from happening, but some issues are inevitable, and knowing what to do in these situations will keep your tenants safe and happy.

Tree Leaning

Tree cutting and pruning is important and necessary when your tree is leaning significantly. It is not uncommon for major storms with heavy winds to cause trees to start leaning, and keeping a leaning tree in hopes of it returning to its previous position is not worth the safety risk that it poses.

Overgrowth

If a tree’s roots are heading towards your rental properties or ruining the hardscape, you may want to consider removing the tree as overgrowth is a major and ongoing concern that often cannot be stopped.

It is easy to trim a tree to prevent it from getting overgrown, but there is no simple solution to problematic tree roots, and this is where you need to utilize tree cutting services to solve the problem.

Pest or Disease

Managing multiple properties can have your hands full, and sometimes this means you do not take notice that a tree has been infested with pests or contracted a disease.

Ideally, you want to get your tree inspected before deciding that it should be cut down, especially because many treatments are more affordable than cutting it down. In some cases, the damage already done is just too much, which means you need to have the tree cut down. Making this decision is the right call as you want to avoid tree branches falling down and causing a major hazard.

Although it may not be easy to have a once-beautiful and thriving tree cut down, you need to make the safest and smartest decision in your position, and tree cutting is sometimes the best solution.

When a tree gets injured, a natural desire to help may lead the tree owner to attempt to treat the tree by bandaging it or painting the wound. However, trees do a better job of healing when left to their own devices, and in cases where this is not possible, tree care consulting is your best option.

An injured tree had a unique process whereby it heals a wound. It seals off the injured area in order to protect itself from insect activity as well as disease. The tree gradually grows bark over the affected area, until the wound heals. The rate at which this occurs depends on the health of the tree.

Unfortunately, attempting to treat a tree's wound more often leads to complications than actual help. When people apply dressings or paint to a tree wound, it results in increased moisture in the area, which impedes natural healing. Paint can also destroy tissue the tree is attempting to grow over the wound. Upon interruption of the wound healing process, the tree becomes more susceptible to insect invasion as well as disease processes, such as fungi.

After a tree injury, cleaning back wound edges to healthy bark is necessary for healing to begin. Damaged branches need appropriate pruning, to prevent further damage to the tree. Incorrect pruning can lead to further injury of connecting branches or even the trunk of the tree itself. Serious injury may even require removal of the tree, for the safety of the structures around it as well as nearby individuals.

Trees' injuries are often less severe than the complications that arise from improper treatment of them. When your tree gets hurt, your most important resource is your arborist, who can advise you on the best treatment options.

If you're a homeowner eager to prove yourself as a handyman around the house, you've probably considered cutting down those pesky trees that take away the sun to your garden and always threaten to fall on your property. And how hard could it be? Just a couple of cuts with the chainsaw in one direction, and...

... disaster occurs. Because unlike what most homeowners think, tree cutting and tree removal is best left for professionals. That's because in addition to requiring significant, very specific skills to avoid any danger to house and property, it also requires a feel for the situation and specific tree that can't be easily acquired. In other words, tree cutting is both an art and a science.

Let's start with the skills. Obviously, arborists cannot be afraid of heights, as climbing the tree is almost always required in tree cutting. But they also need to have a keen mathematical understanding of angles, lengths and weights - trees are often longer and heavier than they first appear, and underestimating their fall area may lead to significant damage. Of course, an intricate understanding of the tools used is also absolutely necessary to prevent personal harm.

But all of these technical skills are useless if the arborist doesn't have a feel for the tree. Many indicators can tell the trained professional how healthy the tree is, which branches may fall off prematurely, and which are safe to operate on. That's why arborists are often called 'tree surgeons' - their understanding of the material leads them to make informed decision when cutting down a tree. 

Combining the technical skills with a feel for the individual tree is what makes arborists necessary. So next time you get annoyed by your tree, don't risk your life and property - contact us to get it cut by professionals who know everything there is to know about tree cutting!

When people think about how strong wind affects trees, they often think of the way that wind causes a tree to bend. This is because bending is the most obvious wind effect seen by the eye. But another effect of wind on a tree is twist.

The foliage and branches growing up and out from the trunk of a tree is called its crown. In the presence of wind the tree crown acts like a sail. When the crown is uneven, then the side of the tree with the most crown sees more wind force than the side with the least crown. This uneven force torques the tree and causes it to twist, hence the term crown twist.

Trees can have uneven crowns for a variety of reasons. They tend to grow more branches and foliage towards the sunlight. So in the northern hemisphere, trees often have more foliage on their south facing sides. If two trees have closely grown side by side, then each tree will have less foliage in the direction of the other tree. If one tree falls down, then the other faces the full brunt of the wind with an uneven crown. Uneven crowns can also be caused by disease.

Improper tree pruning is yet another way for an uneven crown to occur. In addition, sometimes pruning may cause the weight of a tree to be poorly distributed which can make it more susceptible to wind damage.

Trees with uneven crowns will adjust to the twisting effect of wind. This is done when the growth cells grow in a slanted direction. Over time, this slanted growth direction causes a twist in the trunk of the tree.

The problem with crown twist is that any weaknesses that exist within the tree also get torqued. This torque stress will cause small weaknesses such as a small crack to get larger. Cracks can also develop in other weak sections and imperfections. In short, weaknesses get magnified when a tree has crown twist. This can progress to the point where the tree may fail catastrophically during a strong wind storm.

If your tree has an uneven crown, examine it closely for weaknesses such as splits or cracks. If you're concerned about crown twist damage or would like professional tree pruning, contact us.
