Trimmed trees - Glen Cove Tree Service

Proper Tree Trimming Helps Your Grass and plants grow better... 

Proper tree trimming can have a great effect on your overall yard maintenance. While shade is a good thing, too much shade, as you can imagine, can cause the smaller plants, flowers, shrubs and such to suffer. Grass needs plenty of sunlight, and without having your trees properly trimmed on a regular basis, it can cause damage.

Trees need care... Winter, Summer, Spring and Fall… so don’t delay- call today.

NO JOB TOO BIG- Glen Cove Tree Service.HEIC

Safety First

Safety of your home and property

A key element of safety, which we take very seriously, is the safety of your home and property. We have been doing this for a very long time. For every project, from tree trimming to the felling of an entire tree, we make sure that every step and ever drop is calculated.

When doing a full tree removal, we use advanced cables, ropes and guides to ensure that when we cut a branch, limb, or any portion of a tree, we guide each piece safely to the earth, slowly and precisely. During the tree removal process, we cut from the top to bottom, in exact sized pieces. Once a piece is cut, we lower it to the ground making sure it falls exactly where we want it to go, away from any buildings or structures.

Landscaping and Your Trees

We love trees and whenever possible we strive to maintain and preserve your landscape; however, occasionally full tree removal is necessary. If a tree has become diseased to the point that it can’t be saved, it may be necessary to remove the tree altogether.  Our tree service specialists will evaluate the tree and determine if it is a hazard to keep it.

Our tree removal cost is reasonable and our team of experts is cautious about the removal. When removing a tree we make sure that the entire area is coronated off and there is no danger of the possibility of any damage to your property or belongings. When performing any tree service strive to make sure that safety standards are adhered to during every step of the tree removal process. Call us for details and a free estimate for any job, large or small.

Wood Chips For Garden

We have plenty of wood chips available to our customers which help to make perfect mulch for gardens, walk areas, play areas, etc. Call us for details and for information about wood chip delivery to your garden.

For gardeners looking for efficient mulching options, wood chips have grown to be a well-liked and environmentally beneficial option.  These are recycled chips from our tree removal serviceThese little pieces of wood, made from branches, twigs, and logs, have several advantages for landscaping and plant beds. When applied correctly, wood chips have a substantial positive impact on soil health, moisture retention, weed control, and the creation of a healthy garden environment.

The benefits of using wood chips as a mulch

One of the main advantages of utilizing wood chips in the garden is their capacity to hold moisture. Wood chips serve as a barrier that prevents water evaporation when they are applied to the soil surface and around plants. This promotes healthy plant growth and lessens the need for regular watering by keeping the soil continuously moist, even during hot and dry spells.

Wood chips provide a natural barrier that prevents weed development. They lessen competition between weeds and attractive plants by obstructing sunlight and creating a physical barrier for weed seeds. By reducing the amount of time and effort required for frequent weeding, this benefits gardeners.

Wood chips function as insulators and aid in the control of soil temperature. They help to keep the soil cooler in hot season and offer some defense against freezing temperatures in colder weather. The moderate temperature promotes the best circumstances for microbial activity and root growth.

Wood chips enrich the soil by introducing organic matter as they decompose over time. As a result of the decomposition process, vital nutrients are released, improving soil fertility and plant health in general. The microbial activity that the wood chips promote as they rot improves soil structure and nutrient availability.

Application of wood chips to sloped regions successfully stops soil erosion. They produce a shield that keeps soil in place and prevents runoff and the loss of priceless topsoil.

Beautiful Aesthetics: In addition to their utilitarian advantages, wood chips give garden beds and landscaping a natural and rustic appearance. They work well with varied plantings and go well with different garden types, enhancing the aesthetic appeal of outdoor areas.

The Best Ways to Use Wood Chips

Take into account the following best practices to get the most out of using wood chips in your garden:

Application technique: To avoid moisture-related problems, spread a layer of wood chips around plants, keeping them away from the plant stems. Apply a mulch layer that is approximately 2 to 4 inches (5 to 10 cm) thick for best effects.

Avoid Piling: To prevent moisture buildup and root rot, don't pile thick mulch around the bases of trees or bushes. Instead, ring the plant with a uniform layer of wood chips in the shape of a doughnut.

Maintain Depth: Over time, wood chips will compact and break down as they decompose. To keep the mulch layer at the correct thickness and efficacy, replenish it annually.

Use Older Wood Chips: As they decompose, fresh wood chips can momentarily bind nitrogen in the soil. Use old or partially composted wood chips to prevent this.

Wood chips are a great and sustainable mulching option because they have a variety of advantages for gardens and landscaping projects. Wood chips prove to be a useful ally for gardeners looking to cultivate thriving and beautiful outdoor spaces by preserving moisture, reducing weeds, enriching the soil, and contributing to a visually appealing garden.
 

 

 

Stump Grinding

We don’t only trim and do tree removal. If you’d like, we can make sure that we take care of the entire project, with complete stump grinding and filling of the soil around the removed area. We have some of the best tools available in the industry for stump removal including smaller yet powerful stump grinders that will get into the tightest and trickiest of places. We’re up for the challenge, give us a call and let us evaluate the location. Large hills, deep valleys, around stonework, in tight corners… no problem, we can make it happen. If you are finding that trees are affecting your sidewalks or driveway it may be time to take care of the tree before it’s too late and it causes irreversible damage. If a sidewalk is lifted due to a tree it can create cracks in the concrete and a tripping hazard.

How To Cut Down A Tree

First, we remove all limbs all the way from top to bottom of the tree, and using carefully secured lines, we lower each limb. Once the entire tree trunk is cleared of the limbs, we begin carefully cutting the tree into secured-sized sections before full tree removal. Each section is cut into manageable sections. With the lines, they are lowered to the ground slowly. Whenever possible we never allow a tree to fall, as the possibility of the tree hitting a home, structure, or person is increased with the uncertainty of the fall zone.

We are a licensed and insured full-service tree surgeon. We work with and are approved by all municipalities on Long Island from the North Shore to the South Shore.

All About Trees

healthy tree going into fall- Glen Cove Tree Service

Tree Leave Colors

On the North Shore of Long Island and throughout New York State we enjoy a beautiful array of colors from the many different trees. The color the trees change to, whether it be red, orange, yellow or amber. These colors are the natural color. In the summer the leaves are green from Chlorophyll, (pigments from cyanobacteria) which helps the trees to absorb sunlight. The green leaves are actually hiding the other colors. In the autumn, with less sunlight the trees then take the nutrients stored in their leaves pulling them into the roots. During this time is when you can see the true colors of the trees, without the green camouflage. Once the trees turn brown and fall, they have lost all their pigments.

Exposed roots of tree- Glen Cove Tree Service

Roots Above Ground?

Tree roots that are appearing above the ground can be a problem, not only for your landscape but also for any concrete, paving, brickwork that can end up lifting. The exposed roots are usually due to erosion of the soil around the tree. The tree will not, on its own, decide to expose its roots  What to do? We recommend that you don’t at this point simply add soil. The added soil can suffocate the roots. We suggest that you add mulch over the exposed limb, this is the most cost-effective remedy which will cover the roots from the sunlight yet still allow the roots to absorb the water. Be sure to secure the soil though using a border of bricks, rocks or wood. Best borders that will last include metal, recycled rubber edging, paver stones, or you can simply shovel the edges creating a mote of sorts. There are also cedar shingles available that will work as well depending on the area you are seeking to contain.

Common Tree Disease and problems

Just like humans, trees can develop health issues including infections, that can affect their wellbeing and stress the tree. If left untreated tree sickness can result in the tree not growing properly, lose its limbs and possibly lead to the tree dying. Throughout the North Shore of Long Island trees are subject to a vast array of weather elements. From snow, to droit, to harsh winds and storms; All of these issues, if not properly evaluated and diagnosed, can cause tree death.

Lack of water, for example, is often a common issue for tree destress and issues.

How to tell if the tree is lacking water

Irrigation for the trees around your property is often difficult… If there has been a long period of time with a lack of rain, see if your trees are showing these signs: If the leaves seem to wilt, and look yellow or brown along the ends. Obviously, the leaves will turn colors in the fall, but if it seems to be happening too early, it may be that the tree needs to be hydrated.

The earth around the tree should be moist at all times, dry clay-like or dust-dry dirt on the surface is a sure sign that the dirt at the roots is not wet enough for the tree’s roots. On the other hand, too much water can also be an issue. If you find the area muddy or wet, the tree is not drinking the water, and could, in effect be actually drowning and too much water can lead to the roots rotting. This detreating of the roots can ultimately lead to the death of the root system and the tree. Remember, too much water is as bad as too little. Younger, recently planted trees and saplings, require more water in the beginning, to help the tree establish its roots. If the tree is young it will require more frequent watering by you above and beyond the rain it may be receiving.

We, along with other arborists, recommend that you water a new tree at least two times a week. When the tree is new the tree’s roots are close to the service and therefore require surface water. Later, when the roots are able to dig themselves deeper, they will get water from the earth, which they often prefer. If you fear that the tree won’t be able to get sufficient water at that level you can add a deep root irrigation system or drip system. Feel free to reach out to us regarding these products.

The trees on Long Island, Nassau, and Suffolk County,  are subject to an array of weather conditions, from freezing cold to souring tempters. Although most species of trees are able to adapt, they may need your helping hand to prosper. Once the tree is mature, most likely the tree will be able to get the proper amount of water, sun, and nutrition from the soil on its own. If you have questions feel free to give us a call, we’ll be happy to take a look at your trees and determine what course of action is required to help the tree last for generations to come. Especially with mature, older trees especially older trees, need tree trimming. On the North Shore of Long Island, we have many trees nearly 100 years old or more. Proper tree trimming and care are important in keeping these local treasures around and not having to do tree removal.  They give us oxygen, and shade and provide shelter for local wildlife, we strive to take care of them. 

Each tree is different, not only in its appearance but also in the care they require.  If you are in a new home and need help determining the types of trees around your property, we’d be happy to help with any information you might need. Feel free to give us a call. We’d be happy to establish a relationship.
