Just like people, trees can also benefit from first aid care after an injury. Whether accidentally inflicted by a person or by nature, applying first aid to a damaged tree can help its recovery. However, if the damage was caused by a storm, it's important not to place yourself in danger. Storms can cause extensive damage, and standing under the tree may expose you to injury from hanging limbs about to fall. If you spot damaged limbs beyond your reach (while standing on the ground), or if the branch requires chainsaw work, get a professional to do the work for you.
Electrocution is another danger when dealing with storm damaged trees. If any power lines have fallen on the tree, or if a tree branch is leaning against a power line, stay away from the tree. High voltage electricity conducts through living wood, and even touching the tree on a spot remote from the power line is dangerous.

Property management comes with a lot of responsibilities for those in charge. It's not only the interior of a property that needs management and care, but the exterior as well. Managers see to it that the grass gets cut, the bushes stay trimmed, and no litter ruins the landscaping. A sometimes overlooked area, until there is a problem, is property management tree care.
Trees frame and enhance a property, and their care should never be overlooked. Because of their majesty, trees are the first things that people notice when coming on a property. Leave a good first impression by making sure the trees under your care are in the best health possible!
Healthy trees have many benefits. They not only enhance the beauty of a property, but provide shade as well. They can increase a property's value by hiding unappealing views. If your property is a bit drab, a variety of different trees can even add color. Trees, when cared for properly, will last for a long time and don't need replacing as often as other types of landscaping, thus saving costs.
To preserve their health and beauty, trees need more than just watering. They require regular pruning to remove dead wood and to maintain their shape. Pest and disease control is also essential to keep them from becoming sick. Soil enhancement will even improve your trees' vitality.
We can help property managers with all of your tree care needs. Our experts have years of experience, training, and education. Within the Greater Toronto area, our knowledge of trees is the best available. Contact us today about our comprehensive tree management plans.
One of the greatest weather threats to trees are the ice storms of winter. Although winter is over, summer can bring violent thunder storms with strong winds that can severely damage your trees. Sometimes this damage is plainly obvious such as when a large limb breaks off, or the entire tree is blown over. However, it's the damage that isn't obvious that should cause concern, because the tree could structurally fail while someone is standing under it. After a severe storm, it's always best to inspect the tree for damage. Follow these three inspection steps:
Inspect the Branches in the Crown
With a pair of binoculars, look up at the tree's crown for broken branches that are two inches or more in diameter. The branches will have a sharp angle at the break point or may be hanging. Larger branches may have cracks and splintering. View the crown at all angles. Look closely at V-shaped branch attachments to the trunk for damage. V-shaped attachments are structurally weak.
Inspect the Trunk
Check the trunk for cracks that go completely through. Also look for large cracks occurring at right angles. Both of these conditions are extremely dangerous. Examine weak spots on the trunk where cracks are likely to form. These include areas with cavities or decay. Cracks within these areas or next to them are also cause for concern. Again, keep your distance by using binoculars.
Inspect the Roots
Look for exposed roots that appear pulled from the ground, and for up-heaved soil next to the tree. Back away from the tree and look at its lean. If it seems unnatural, and the tree leans in the direction opposite to the exposed roots and up-heaved ground, the tree could be ready to fall over.
If you spot tree damage or have any concerns about your tree's safety, have a York Region arborist give the tree a complete inspection. Contact us at Advanced Tree Care for more information.

Our state-of-the-art and environmentally friendly Advanced Tree Care TreEcology Program enables us to assist our customers with preserving and enhancing their valuable trees and shrubs. We use organic and socially responsible products to achieve our three fundamental goals: preserve, protect, and enhance your landscape.
We accomplish these goals with several quality services.
Regular pruning and proper care will preserve the health and beauty of your greenery for years. Our pruning experts work to:
Tree Structural Reinforcement
Contrary to popular belief, trees are rather flexible, adapting to their current climate conditions, as well as visiting animals in search of food or shelter. Consequently, any structural deficiencies such as splits, cracks, and flimsy branches can undermine the tree’s overall stability. Through the use of cables, braces, and other supplies, our professional arborists can provide your existing trees with the necessary reinforcement to maintain their integrity while still enabling their natural flexibility.
Our custom support systems seek to:
Tree Pest and Disease Control
Insects and other pests—if left untreated—have the power to attack a tree’s natural immune system, spreading disease and causing significant damage and even death. We focus on non-chemical pest controls as the first line of defense to address these threats and let the tree recover on its own; however, extreme cases oftentimes require pesticides.
For the Emerald Ash Borer, we utilize a scientifically proven injectable process that uses IMA-jet (5% imidacloprid) to address this specific nuisance quickly and economically.
Increasing soil’s nutrients is the best way to ensure your trees’ health and vigor. In order to enrich the soil and provide your trees with the best possible nutrition, we use traditional mulching, radical trenching, and vertical mulching.
Tree and Stump Removal
Even though we try to preserve and save trees, in some extreme cases removal is necessary. Similarly, tree stumps are not only a nuisance but also dangerous for small children and lawn care tools. Attempting tree or stump removal on your own can cause serious property or landscape damage. We strive to ensure high quality and affordable removal with the least amount of harm to your property.
We also provide—and greatly recommend—maintaining your trees’ health during the frigid winter months.

Investing in a professional tree care plan is a great way to handle such a crucial part of landscaping for each property.

There is a rich mythology surrounding trees. Many ancient cultures such as the Celts, Greeks, Romans, Norse, and others had fascinating tales and legends about trees. Today, there's a different type of tree mythology that consists of misconceptions about their structure, growth, and proper care. Acting on these myths can adversely affect the health of trees. Here are four of them:
Trees Can Heal Their Wounds
Trees are incapable of repairing or replacing damaged tissue. Instead, they wall off damaged tissue in a process called compartmentalization. This prevents its infection or the spread of infection to the rest of the tree. The sealed off tissue remains damaged for the rest of the tree's life. This is why you should exercise care when using tools and power equipment around trees.
Trees Survive Just Fine in the Wild and Therefore Don't Need My Care
While some trees in the wild are healthy, many others are diseased, damaged, or stressed in some way. A walk through the forest will reveal trees leaning at extreme angles and about to topple over. Others have few leaves in their canopy or have extensive fungus infections. The trees on your property aren't exempt from these problems and are exposed to urban or suburban stresses as well, such as compacted soil and limited space for root growth.
Trees Grow Deep Root Systems
Tree roots require loose oxygenated soil, which occurs near the surface. Therefore tree roots grow outward and parallel to the surface. This is why soil compaction is detrimental to the health of a tree. Vertical tap roots are not common in mature trees.
Trees Require Lots of Mulch
Mulch stabilizes the soil moisture content and its temperature near the tree. Organic mulch also provides nutrients to the soil. Too much mulch, especially when applied at the base of the tree against the trunk, will encourage the roots to grow up into the mulch. This causes the roots to wrap around the trunk, which eventually kills the tree. Excessive mulch also builds up too much moisture, which encourages rot.
