Winter Tree Service in Oshkosh
Winter tree service in Oshkosh, WI is extremely important! Let Viking Tree Service tell you why…
Cutting back the small limbs will increase the overall growth and production of the tree’s trunk and larger branches because less of the tree’s energy will be devoted to hundreds of small offshoots.
Arborists can get a better idea of the tree’s shape and its character when there are no leaves on it to obstruct their view. It’s also easier to actually prune the trees.
Fall and spring are the worst times to prune your trees because the weather in these months is perfect for bacteria, mold, and fungus growth.
Winter tree service is good for your trees, and it’s also a time of year when many people’s lives slow down a little and they can devote some time to taking care of their home and surrounding property.
Winter is a great time to have your trees professionally pruned. There is a much lower risk that our crews will damage your landscaping in the winter since most flower beds will be clear of those bright, bushy summer annuals. Also, we can use the hard, frozen ground to our advantage. The heavy equipment that Viking Tree Service uses to access your trees must be placed on solid ground to give us the most stability and the highest level of safety. Winter gives us the perfect scenario for tree removal, bracing, cabling, pruning, and a laundry list of other tree services!
You may think that when the leaves fall from your trees, there really isn’t anything you can do to care for them, but that is far from the truth! Here are a few things that you can have Viking Tree Service do for you even in the coldest months of the year:
You can spread mulch around your trees during the winter in order to maintain a warmer temperature for the base of the trees. Mulch also helps the trees’ root system to retain moisture during the winter. Plus, it looks very neat and tidy during the winter months when the rest of your yard will be sparse without summer flowers in bloom.
As we mentioned above, the winter gives your arborist a great opportunity to see the tree’s limb system because all the leaves are gone. If you need a routine inspection, consider having it done during the winter. The experts at Viking Tree Service are called on much more often during the spring and summer to do these types of jobs, so take advantage of our slower season by having us do your annual tree inspections during the winter.
Cabling or bracing a tree is done when the tree is showing signs of weakness or after a tree has already split. This could be the result of storm damage, weak structure, or excessively heavy branches weighing the tree down. Winter is a great time for us to cable or brace trees because we can get deep into the tree’s canopy without damaging any of its branches or foliage. We can also determine the best angles for the cables since the leaves aren’t in the way. Cabling and bracing hardware must be inspected every year to make sure that it hasn’t rusted and that it is still doing its job, and winter is a good time for us to do that as well.
Removing a tree is a tedious and sometimes dangerous job. The better we can see everything around us, the safer the process will be. Yet again, trees that have lost their leaves are very easy to remove because our crews can maintain a direct line of sight with one another, and they can see what’s below them before cutting limbs and dropping them to the ground. When it comes to the trunk and larger limbs, the hard-packed ground allows us to move freely with large, heavy pieces to get them loaded onto a truck or moved into a wood chipper.
Viking Tree Service is your best choice for tree services all year round. In the winter, many Oshkosh tree service companies close up shop or cut back on their staff and services, but we don’t let a little cold weather stop us! Call Viking Tree Service for your winter tree service needs!
