Our tree crew or  tree care professionals - or even arborists - are  trained to perform specific practices that relate to safe andf efficient tree care. Our Arborists typically work on a tree crew made up of 2-4 arborists/arborist trainees.Some of our arborists climb the trees, but some do not. There are several tree care maintenance tasks that need to be taken care of at ground level.

The tree care industry requires skill and hard work.  Some tree care activities our arborists might provide are:

  • Plant health care
  • Pest Control
  • Repairing storm damage
  • Pruning
  • Tree protection during construction
  • Installing lightning protection or support systems
  • Removing hazardous trees
  • Root zone soil management

What a day looks like for our arborists:

Adhering to safety standards

• Inspect trees for health problems or potential hazards

• Talk with homeowners regarding their trees

• Climb trees - rigging and lowering large limbs, install support systems, etc

• Assist other climbers in rigging and removing limbs

• Flagging trafficof vehicles and pedestrians

• Limb trees on the ground

• Operate a bucket truck, chipper, stump grinder or other specialized equipment

• Clean up job site

 

 

Due to the warmer weather, it is unsafe to prune oak trees. If you missed the window of opportunity fpor pruing your oak tree, please keep this pruning calendar handy so you know when it is safe to prune your trees.

As an arborist and tree climber, we use ropes and knots everyday. It is crucial to have a thorough understanding of many different knots and their applications, as they are used in life support and rigging. 

Even though we are located in Spring Lake we do service customers North of us. Today our crew is working in North Muskegon doing pruning and removal work. Please contact our office if you have further questions.

The Gypsy Moth is known to feed on foliage of hundreds of species of plants in North America. Its most common hosts are oak and aspen trees. The Gypsy Moth hosts are located through most of the US. The highest concentrations of host trees are located in the southern Appalachian Mountains, Ozark Mountains and also in the northern Great Lakes States.

Things to be on the look out for:

• The egg masses on tree boles, branches, vehicles, houses and any other structures. 

• Egg masses are considered to be buff-colored after they are initially deposited in late summer. They become lighter in color as they are bleached by the sun. 
 
• Egg mass size may indicate the population trend. When populations are declining, most of the egg masses are around 0.5" long and contain about 100 eggs, while building populations have 1.5" long egg masses containing up to 1000 eggs.

what people say

  • I had Get-R-Cut come to my house to do some pruning on Oak trees in my backyard. We had some areas that we had different kinds of plants that were directly under the trees to be pruned that we did not want damaged. Jared and Chris did a great job in avoiding any damage to those areas. Jared did a great job in removing a lot of dead branches and pruning up the trees to providing an idea shape to them. Chris, Jared's helper, did a tremendous job managing things on the ground and constantly removing brush and cutting up branches to move to their chipper.
    The clean up process was very well done. I would highly recommend them to others if they need trees pruned or removed. I will be having them return to remove 3 very large trees from our front yard in the near future to get rid of potential problems with them.

  • 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.
