Pruning your trees and shrubs is a crucial part of maintaining the health of your landscape. It is the most common tree maintenance procedure, and there is a science behind it. Pruning enhances the health, beauty and structure of your trees. How often you need to prune depends on the age and type of tree or shrub.
Protecting your trees and plants from pests and disease is an important part of maintaining a healthy landscape. When left untreated, pests and disease can wreak havoc on your trees and create costly problems down the line. Integrated pest management (IPM) is a science-based, common-sense approach that reduces the potential for pest and disease problems.
We live in a semi-arid desert but what exactly does that mean? Surprisingly or not, that means that we receive only 30-50% of the annual precipitation that many of our non-native trees require to thrive. It also means that in the fall after irrigation systems have been shut off it’s one of the driest periods, at a critical time when trees need water to grow roots. Our high desert environment was little more than sage and rabbit brush before we settled here, and supplemental water was the key to establishing the urban forest we now enjoy. Our essential watering program protects your growing investment against the ongoing drought we experience here creating a thriving landscape for years to come.
Trees can be injured in several ways including: construction damage, car accidents, and storm damage. Depending on the level of damage it may be possible to save the tree by repairing it. Our arborists will evaluate the level of damage to see if tree repair is an option.
Tree removal is highly technical and requires trained and qualified professionals. Sometimes removing a tree is necessary for the health, aesthetics, safety, and liability of your property. Strategic tree removal can give competing species a chance to develop and mature. In certain instances, it may even be necessary to remove a living tree if it’s interfering with the health of other trees or threatening buildings, driveways, or utility wires.
Proper tree planting and transplanting is often underestimated. If done incorrectly, it can impact the growth and longevity of your trees. Our tree and shrub planting starts with a site analysis to help you choose the right tree for the right place. Then we hand pick the best quality nursery stock, deliver and install your new tree and guarantee it for one year. During this first year we monitor the tree to make sure that it is on its way to creating memories.

We love living in the mountain west, but we also understand it comes with the risk of forest fires. Fire mitigation is an intentional, strategic and effective way to reduce the risks of wildland fire. Selectively thinning or removing trees and ladder fuels, clearing around structures, and hardening the landscape are all key pieces of improving fire readiness in the wildland-urban interface (WUI).
