Do you have old apple trees that are no longer producing edible fruit? 

Do you have historic apple trees that have been preserved into you landscape in your subdivision?

Do you newly planted apple trees that you want to have fruit production with?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, we can help by managing your fruit trees with proper pruning for correct branch structure and fruit production...and the honey bees will love you for it.

Why in the world would we prune trees in the wintertime? I mean seriously why? It is so cold in Michigan during the winter, why would we be out pruning trees in the cold and snowy weather? These weather conditions however, are very favorable for oak tree pruning. In Michigan we have a disease called Oak Wilt and the best time of year to prune oak trees is in the winter! Many of our clients have oak trees. So, this is a perfect scenario for our clients. Oak trees need to be pruned during the dormant season, which is the winter. The oak trees are dormant, the fungus is dormant and the insect that transports the disease is dormant. This essentially lowers the risk of infection of the tree. This equals perfect timing for oak pruning. If you have more questions on Oak Wilt please contact us at our office or check out our YouTube channel on the subject.

Did you know that the species of tree will dictate the likelihood of a lightning strike?  For instance, the number one tree most likely to be struck by lightning is a white pine... second in line is a red oak... and thirdly is a cottonwood... these three trees comprise the majority of our forests and trees in our Urban landscapes.... Did you know that there are 25 million lightning strikes per year in the United States? Michigan is #13. It is often best to consult with an arborist or a CERTIFIED ARBORIST… LIKE JARED who can install lightning protection on your tree to save the costly damage prior to being struck by lightning.... In the event that your tree does get struck by lightning without being protected, you can still call us...Get-R-Cut.com…We Know Trees!!

 

 

As an arborist there are things that we see in the field each and every day; natural observations that we make in the course of time as things change from year to year. Over the last year in the Spring Lake and Grand Haven area Cottony Maple Scale has grown in epidemic proportions and has even become life-threatening to too many maple trees. Other trees that may be affected can be crab-apple and Japanese maple; just imagine losing that Japanese maple the Crimson King that has been the centerpiece of your landscape. The aesthetic loss of the tree as well as the cost to replant can be devastating, what about the other nasty side effects of maple cotton scale....the nasty mildew....the constant stickiness of everything underneath and around the trees including sidewalks, your vehicles, your houses, or what about your grill that is underneath your red maple tree every time you want to cook out; it's just covered in mildew, or what about that large silver maple that provides your dock or boat slip with shade, what a beautiful tree but it causes such a mess! It can straight-up take the fun right out of Summer. The good thing is, it only takes a call to our arborist and we can assist you in taking care your maple trees and landscape to make them enjoyable again. Our services would include Spring Lake, Muskegon Lake, Mona Lake, Bear Lake, Lake Michigan, White Lake and the Grand River.

Tree removal and tree pruning (any tree work really) can be incredibly dangerous, even for professional arborists. There are many "do-it-your-selfers" who attempt to do their own tree work. Sometimes they are successful at this and other times it is catastrophic. 

As stated on the TCIA website, "In 2015 alone, the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA) recorded 58 serious civilian tree care accidents, 34 of which were fatal. Six of these victims were under the age of 13, and were innocent bystanders to the misguided actions of adults".

Please do not attempt to do tree work if you are not trained or equipped to do so. Safety is very important while doing tree work and many times people take shortcuts and safety is not on their radar. Those "do-it-your-selfers" generally try to save money and do it their-self. Please leave the tree work to the professional arborists. If you have any questions please feel free to contact our office.

what people say

  • Get-R-Cut.com is represented in my BNI group by Jared's wife Becky. My 1st experience with Jared was to cut a large tree down in my step son's yard. This tree was hanging over the house & not in very good condition. He came out to evaluate & give an estimate. He then arrived & did the job exactly when he said he would and for a reasonable price. He also removed several stumps in my yard the same day.

    Since then we acquire fire wood for our central boiler in which we depend on for heat & hot water for our home and my business.

    Thank you Jared & Becky for doing such a great job!

  • We have had Jared at our home several times doing work. If you want someone to cut down your trees and clean up your mess, Jared is the man for you. You won't even see a leaf on the ground when he's done. We wouldn't think of using anyone else.
