Tips for Property Managers - Building Clearance

How many times have you noticed that trees have been planted too close to buildings/structures? A good thing to keep in mind is that you should provide approximately 5-10 foot of clearance from the building. This can be measured from the outermost point of the building (ie an awning).

For those trees that are in close/tight quarters, it is necessary to prune them at 180 degrees. By pruning in this fashion, it reduces the potential long term maintenance costs associated with constantly pruning those unwanted branches that cause sucker shoots. It is acceptable when pruning is done to do it back to the trunk with a proper branch collar cut. While looking at the tree from the road, the tree will appear to be a whole tree. However, from the inside it is really a half a tree.

When a tree get particularly large - over 50 feet, there is a risk of ending up with a lopsided tree. For this reason it is important to have your arborist recommend pruning practices on a tree by tree basis to suit your needs.

what people say

  • JB does my snow plowing for my auto repair shop also has done some landscape work as well... great job. I would refer them to anyone.

  • 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!

  • I met Jared at a Business Network International meeting. Every person I spoke with recommended JB Landscape Services for their professionalism, dependability, honesty, and integrity.

    I asked for a load of seasoned hardwood cut in 16" lengths. Forty-eight hours later we had a full cord and a short bit more. It appeared to be a mixture of oak, birch, and hickory. None of it appeared to be green. We have burned three fires and each one has been perfect--easy to start--and each burned to complete ash.

    I understand that they have since begun focusing their business solely on the tree service side of landscaping as Get-R-Cut.com. There is every reason to believe that this is the perfect realignment.

    At least from this experience, I wholeheartedly recommend this family owned business.

    Thanks Baxter's. You're great!
