Tree removal, palm trimming, and tree health management in South Florida differ from anywhere else in the country. Sandy soil, high temperatures, UV burning, and long seasons of alternating rain and drought can make it difficult for hobbyists to know how best to care for their trees, shrubs, and landscaping.

Let our ISA-certified arborists plan to identify and resolve structural defects for the trees around your home or business. Call us at Sherlock Tree Company to request an estimate.

Pruning and Trimming

Our Certified Treecare Safety Professionals (CTSPs) use bucket trucks or climbing gear with safety harnesses for professional pruning and trimming for large oaks, pine trees, and palm trimming. We start with the identification and resolution of structural defects, then fine-tune our trimming to improve each tree’s appearance around your home or business.

According to the University of Florida’s Institute of Food & Agricultural Sciences (IFAS), the four main reasons for pruning and trimming plants include:

  • Directing the growth and shape of the tree or shrub
  • Altering the appearance of the plant
  • Promoting tree or shrub health
  • Improving or reducing the production of flowers or fruit

Tree Health Management

Tree health management includes caring for the tree itself, from the roots up to the leaves, as well as providing a stable and productive environment for the tree to grow. It also involves disease and insect identification and control for trees, shrubs, and landscape plants throughout your yard or commercial property.


Our ISA-certified arborists will soil-test and assess your trees and shrubs to determine what nutrients your soil and plants need to grow healthy grass, shrubs, and trees. We offer several fertilization solutions, including:

  • Semi-annual fertilization programs
  • Soil amendments to improve the quality of soil around your property
  • Top-rated soil amendment and fertilization products
  • Appropriate timing to get the best results from fertilizer applications
  • Organic and all-natural options

Healthy soil is the first step in ensuring that your trees and shrubs get a healthy start at the roots with adequate nutrition, pH, and water.

Insect and Disease Treatment

During our initial inspection of the trees and plants on your property, one of our certified arborists will look for signs of insect infestation or plant disease. Tree and shrub disease diagnosis, treatment, and prevention are essential to prevent infections from spreading between trees and plants on your property.

Our insect and disease treatment tree services in Delray Beach, FL, include:

  • A thorough inspection of the plants and trees on your property to identify potential problems early
  • Diagnosis and development of an effective treatment plan
  • Custom treatment programs tailored to the weather conditions, types of plants on your property, and time of year
  • Targeted applications for the treatment of affected specimens only
  • Targeted treatments just for the insects or diseases found on your trees, so we don’t over-treat your plants for problems they don’t have
  • Options for organic or all-natural products for treatment and prevention

South Florida palm trees are susceptible to different diseases and insects than other types of trees and shrubs in Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade Counties.

TREE REMOVAL and Stump Grinding

When our arborist inspects your property, they could inform you that a tree is already dead or beyond saving and requires removal before it becomes a hazard to your home, business, or other trees on your property. Some common reasons for tree removal include:

  • Dead or dying trees provide a comfortable place for diseases, mold, or pests
  • Overcrowding of trees competing for resources
  • Removing hazardous trees that block sidewalks, driveways, or buildings
  • Removing a tree before construction

We offer stump grinding as an add-on service after tree removal, as leaving stumps can attract pests and diseases or allow the tree to regrow from the stump. Ask about adding stump grinding for your tree removal job.

Installation and Transplanting

Tree planting and transplanting could require a landscape permit if the cost of improvements totals over $1,000 for a residential property or complies with LDR 4.6.16(C)(1)(b)1-15 for multi-family and commercial properties.

We plant trees according to ISA recommendations and ANSI A300 planting standards and will help you with planned maintenance to ensure that your young trees take root properly and flourish.

Tree Safety and Storm Preparation

We can help you prepare for the storm season with hurricane preparedness and hurricane damage prevention for your trees and shrubs. We can reinforce heavy limbs with cabling and bracing.

Did You Know?

Homeowners must get a tree removal permit for any tree wider than four inches in diameter at 54” above the ground. You must also use a licensed tree trimmer or certified arborist and may have to replace any tree removed.

I used Sherlock to professionally prune back my Japanese Blueberry trees, which I had neglected for a few years. They did a great job, under the watchful eye of an arborist, pruning them back so that they will grow back nice and lush. All debris was promptly removed, and there was nothing left for me to clean up. I would highly recommend this business and will be using them for future work.
