When it comes to Tree Trimming Charleston, Murray Tree Care has it down to an exact science. Providing proper care and maintenance to trees is imperative to keep your property safe and your trees healthy and strong. In a storm dead or diseased limbs and branches are the first things that break and are blown out of trees. These can cause serious safety hazards for your home property and even your loved ones. Keeping your trees trimmed and properly maintained is important, ensuring they aren’t a hazard in the next storm. Charleston tree trimming is something that we often see done improperly and it can damage or even kill your tree.

In this case the tree itself may be prone to fall over, especially in severe weather conditions. *Leaning Trunks: It’s common for trees to lean more to one side than the other, but when you see the tree leaning at sharper angle this could be cause for concern, and a good time to call Murray Tree Care to assess the situation *Dying or Dead Branches: Dead or damaged branches are usually a sign the tree is no longer living. Trees or branches that are dead or dying are vulnerable to falling and can cause a lot of damage to whatever may be below them. Get regular pruning done to get rid of all dead or dying branches.  

Stump Grinding Charleston, SC

Curb appeal is important for any property.  Tree stumps are unsightly, stubborn remainders of the tree that once resided in that spot.  They can also take up precious space that can be used for other landscaping and be a nuisance to work around for other yard projects. Tree stumps can also cause trip and safety hazards, and lead to uneven surrounding surfaces.  If the tree stump is not removed properly, it can attract annoying insects that can cause secondary issues to nearby foliage.  The remaining tree stump can also sprout weak suckers if not removed properly.

Charleston Stump Grinding

Many deep tree roots are difficult to remove due to age and size. Digging out the tree root is often difficult, time intensive, and costly. The use of harsh chemicals can impact the surrounding greenery, and is hard on the environment.  Therefore, stump grinding is a logical and cost effective choice. It is important to hire professionals to complete the stump removal process.  We are able to safely and efficiently grind any age or size tree stump.  Our special machinery is highly proficient, and can minimize the cost and effort of other stump removal methods.  We are able to remove tree stumps on uneven terrain, hard to reach locations, and work around other surrounding obstructions safely.  The highly efficient power tools used to grind the tree stump chip away the wood safely and leave a smooth, clean surface behind.

Tree Cabling and Tree Bracing Charleston, SC

Charleston trees are dynamic living organisms, and as such, no two trees are exactly alike. Every tree has a different structure, size, and shape that contribute to its natural beauty. However, many environmental factors can impact a trees ability to grow in a steady, healthy, natural way. Some trees may have natural structural deformations that cause an imbalance in the trees growth. Or, a storm could have caused damage to one side of tree, causing an asymmetrical imbalance that impacts tree’s ability to align its branches naturally. Often our Charleston tree cabling or tree bracing systems make good options for saving your trees and keeping your property safe at the same time.

Tree Cabling and Bracing Charleston

Our certified, licensed and local Charleston tree cabling expert will complete a full, detailed inspection of the entire tree structure in jeopardy to develop an appropriate plan to preserve the tree if possible. It is easiest to complete a full tree and branch inspection during the fall and winter season when there are less leaves, and the branches can be thoroughly inspected. Attention to detail and consideration of complex engineering factors are important with tree cabling and tree bracing, as is the use of the highest quality hardware and cabling system on the market. Using this technique, tree cables and rods are strategically placed at the intersections, or “joints” of the tree to provide additional structural security to the branches at risk. These support systems must be aligned and anchored correctly to brace and secure the branches against tipping, breaking and avoid movements that will impact the integrity of the branches.

Preventative Tree Maintenance Charleston

Our tree cabling and tree bracing system can help support the structural flaws in the tree branches by developing a specifically engineered support system that will brace the branches resulting in less likelihood that they will snap or crack. At Murray Tree Care we use tree cabling and bracing to help strengthen the joints of the tree, and help the tree grow and heal in the most natural way possible.
