We have five ISA-certified arborists on staff, as well as Certified Treecare Safety Professionals.
We offer a wide range of services, including tree pruning and trimming, tree health management, identification and resolution of structural defects, and hurricane preparedness for trees on your property. Since 1974, we have provided professional tree services for residential and commercial customers throughout South Florida, including homeowners, municipalities, utilities, parks, schools, and more.
Pruning and Trimming
Our professional tree climbers use safety harnesses or a bucket truck to reach limbs on tall trees for pruning and trimming, including palm trimming. Regularly trimming trees contributes to their overall wellness, helping them resist structural issues and sculpting them into an attractive shape. Different types of pruning can help a tree grow, including:
- Crown cleaning
- Crown raising/elevating
- Crown reduction
- Crown thinning
- Structural pruning
A key part of adequate pruning is identifying and resolving structural defects that can cause a tree to grow improperly or pose a danger to nearby people, buildings, or other trees. Trees with too many branches may struggle to move nutrients throughout the trunk to each branch. If branches are too large and haven’t been properly guided, they could pose a danger of falling during inclement weather.
By regularly trimming your trees, we help them grow safely without the tree breaking or falling under their own weight and prevent damage from your trees during hurricane season or the typical Florida summer thunderstorms.
Tree Removal and Stump Grinding
Sometimes you must remove a tree from your property. Maybe the tree has overgrown the space on your lot or became infected with a disease and died. Tree removal can be complicated, and you should always hire professionals to remove a tree from your property.
Our tree professionals will get the necessary tree removal permits to remove any problem trees on your property, including:
- Hazardous trees
- Dead or dying trees
- Crowded trees
- Trees blocking construction plans
- Trees obstructing walkways, driveways, or roads
We try to save every tree we can and only remove trees when permanent removal is necessary. We will have one of our certified arborists inspect a tree before we recommend tree removal. If we recommend that you remove a tree, it’s unlikely that our professionals would be able to improve its health.
When we do remove a tree, we recommend stump grinding as an add-on service to remove the stump. Stumps left on your property can attract tree diseases and pests, and they can also regrow the tree over time. We can remove the stump to leave you with a tidy yard.
tree health management
Our arborists will inspect your trees and develop a tree health management plan for tree and shrub disease diagnosis, treatment, and prevention. Our tree services in Lighthouse Point, FL, include disease and insect identification and control for trees, shrubs, and landscape plants.
At Sherlock Tree Company, we believe that healthy trees and plants begin with healthy soil. We begin every assessment with a soil test to determine if your trees and shrubs have the right nutrients, water, and pH levels for healthy growth.
We offer several fertilization plans with top-rated products, including:
- Soil amendments
- Semi-annual fertilization
- Organic or synthetic treatment options
- Regular applications at key times of the year
Insect and Disease Treatment
Our tree health management services include insect identification and control for trees, shrubs, and landscape plants. Our knowledgeable arborists will look for signs of harmful species and develop a treatment plan to prevent infestation between trees. Our services include:
- An initial inspection
- Identification of insects and disease
- Custom treatment plan
- Targeted applications for affected trees and shrubs only
- Targeted treatment systems only for the species identified
- Organic or synthetic treatment options
Installation and Transplanting
The Broward County Environmental Engineering and Permitting Division requires that homeowners replace any tree removed from their property. Whether you are transplanting a tree, replacing a tree, or planting a new tree or shrub on your property, our experts at Sherlock Tree Company can help. Our four-step process includes:
- Site survey. We can study your property’s lighting and watershed and test your soil to determine the best locations in your yard to plant your new tree or shrub.
- Tree selection. If you don’t know yet what kind of tree you want, or you want a second opinion, we can help you choose the best tree to suit your home and how much energy you want to spend tending to your new specimen.
- Tree planting. We adhere to ANSI A300 planting standards and ISA recommendations.
- Ongoing maintenance. Young trees need more attention and care as they settle into their new home. We work with your schedule and budget to create an appropriate maintenance standard for your new tree, including cabling and bracing, fertilization, and identification and resolution of structural defects.
Tree Safety and Storm Preparation
Hurricane preparedness includes making sure your trees are ready for high winds, flooding, and other damaging effects from a high-powered storm. Hurricane damage prevention can also help trees deal with normal summer thunderstorms without damaging nearby structures.
