Tree Care Services
Tree care in South Florida relies on knowing your yard's traits. We evaluate how well your tree can grow in your yard conditions and what we can change to help it flourish. Our tree health management services depending on what would be best for your particular property.
Pruning and Trimming
Our arborists use pruning methods for various reasons, like reducing the chance of disease or removing dead parts. Pruning your trees, bushes, or other landscape plants allows them to focus their energy in fewer places. Other pruning can reduce wind drag on the plants and help them withstand heavy weather conditions, thus increasing hurricane preparedness.
We can handle everything from shrub to palm trimming. The size and type of plant help us differentiate which kind of trimming would work best with each one. Our certified arborists at Sherlock Tree Company have the experienced eyes to determine these needs.
Some kinds of trimming include:
- Crown cleaning
- Crown raising/elevating
- Crown reduction
- Crown thinning
- Structural pruning
At Sherlock Tree Company, we know the steps to identify and resolve plant structural defects. You can rely on us to do all necessary pruning on your property.
Tree Removal and Stump Grinding
Our team will arrange for the permits necessary to remove problem trees from your property. Some of the most common issues requiring tree removal include:
- When a tree becomes a safety hazard
- Dead or dying trees becoming host to disease and pests
- When trees are too close to each other
- When tree removal is necessary for construction
- To prevent road, sidewalk, or home blockage
While we strive to save each tree that we can, we know the best removal methods to use when a tree is beyond help. We always confirm whether we should remove a tree through our diagnosis, treatment, and prevention methods.
After tree removal, we offer stump grinding services. Removing the stump improves tree safety since residual stumps can host diseases and pests that will spread to healthy trees.
If you have a tree removed from your property, you may need a new one to stay within legal parameters. Many South Florida cities require citizens to plant a new tree for each one they remove. Check with us to see if your community has such a code.
As the best providers of tree services in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, at Sherlock Tree Company, we work with residential and commercial property owners to plant healthy trees. We also provide cabling and bracing to stabilize growing trees as the roots settle. We’ll ensure that your new tree will thrive in its soil conditions and grow as it should.
When we plant trees, we commit to hurricane damage prevention, following city protocols to prevent your plants from damaging your home.
Fertilization and Insect Management
Fertilizing plants is not as easy as buying a bag and sprinkling fertilizer. Many plants need a special kind of fertilizer with specific qualities to help them grow. Using the wrong fertilizer can harm and even kill some plants.
Some things our Sherlock Tree Company associates keep in mind include:
- Proper fertilizer application
- Correct timing for fertilizer application
- Fertilizer ingredients
- Proper fertilizer storage
Our practices ensure that our fertilizer produces the best results for your plants.
In addition, we specialize in insect identification and control for trees, shrubs, and landscape plants.
Insects can burrow and make their homes within your trees. They may cause a tree and shrub disease that spreads to other plants and degrades your property’s appearance.
We'll check for insect damage and disease to ensure your property flourishes.
