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.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Emerald Ash Borer has been responsible for the decline and death of more than 25 million ash trees in the United States.There have been several sitings in Michigan and in certain parts of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Maryland.

Adult beetles are a bright metallic green color. They have rounded abdomens and flat backs. They are present from mid-May through late July.

Things to watch for with Emerald Ash Borer:

• Dieback of the leaves - begins in the upper third of the tree and going downward over time. 
 
• Vertical splits in the bark. • D-shaped exit holes are only 0.125" wide in the bark of the trunk and limbs, the result the emergence of newly formed adults beginning in May. 
 
• S-shaped channels that are found under the bark, caused by larval feeding over the winter.
 
Be prepared and keep a watchful eye out for these pests! Contact on of our arborists if you have further questions.

what people say

  • Jared and his Team at Get-R-Cut did an excellent job removing two trees in our back yard and trimming 4 large oaks we had in our front yard. I have worked with Jared on other projects in the past and I will continue to call on Jared for future projects.

  • 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!
