- Cabling and Crown Stabilization / Tree Cavity Repair work
Hurricane Tree Specialists also offer all phases of tree cabling, crown stabilization and cavity repair. The need for these types of services must be weighed on a tree by tree basis, as not all trees are suitable candidates and just as with tree lightning protection systems,a tree cabling system must be installed correctly and priodically inspected and adjusted to ensure it continues to function properly. Improperly installed tree cabling systems can be very dangerous.
If you have a tree or trees on you're property that are judged to be hazardous, we are able to safely remove them without collateral damage. As always we recomend getting a professional evaluation before hand to determine whether tree removal is necessary. Removing trees should always be a last resort. Also please remember that the extraction of large trees is extremely dangerous work and should only be attempted by properly trained professionals.
- Crown Reduction and Restoration
Hurricane Tree Specialists can correctly asess and install tree lightning protection systems for any tree on you're property. Done correctly, these systems are 99.9% effective ,and can provide protection for many years to come. The average lifespan on a T.L.P. system can be from 50 to 100 years depending on tree species. It is important to remember that these systems will need to be periodicaly inspected and adjusted for continued effectiveness. It is also important to remember that not all trees need to be protected. The need for such systems must be weighed on an individual basis.
Hurricane Tree Specialists offer soil aeration, soil decompaction, radial trenching and root collar excavation treatments. These treatments can be very effective for reducing tree stress caused by environmental factors. They are also quite effective in reducing stress related damage caused by human activity. In fact soil compaction is one of the leading causes of oak decline in populated areas. By incorporating these treatments into a tree care regimen we are often able to bring sickly trees back to a more optimal state of health, thereby promoting longevity.
Hurricane Tree Specialists offer crown reduction and restoration services these treatments can be employed to either reduce a tree's overall height and spread ( a preferable method to topping), or to restore a tree's canopy after it has been damaged. It must be remembered that several or more differing treatments over a period of years may be necessary to acheive the desired results. Also tree species is another important consideration, as not all trees are suitable candidates.
Hurricane Tree Specialists offer all forms of tree related irrigation and drainage services, from design to installation. Whether a tree is getting too much water, or not enough we are in many cases able to rectify the situation and thus bring about more optimal conditions for healthy growth and development. It must be remembered that different trees have different needs and each system must be tailored to the tree or trees in question. Also irrigation systems for turf are often seriously inadequate for most tree species.

We are able to get the tree off to a good start, and ensure optimal conditions for future healthy growth and development. Ensuring that trees are properly planted, and acclimated is the best insurance for creating a healthy tree canopy, that is sustainable both now and in the future. It is a simple fact that many future tree problems can be avoided by correctly planting and acclimating them to the planting site.

Hurricane Tree Specialists offer complete pruning services from a to z. As always, we take a conservative approach to the pruning of larger shade trees and conifers. It is as simple fact that over-pruning is a major contributor to the decline of many trees in populated areas. We always base our pruning efforts on each tree's particular structure and need, thereby enhancing tree health and promoting longevity. This approach also serves to reduce future maintenance costs by training trees to grow into a particular structure or form.
As a company of professional arborists, Hurricane Tree Specialists offer year round tree health evaluations with correct diagnosis and prognosis .We are also available for consultations in a group setting or one on one. We know from experience that many of the trees that are lost each year in developed areas could be saved if only correct problem asessment and management were applied. With field examinations we will look for existing as well as potential problems and recomend treatments based on each tree's need. We also have acsess to a plant pathology lab,to aid us in securing correct asessments. Before you decide to have a tree removed, we urge you to have a professional evaluation. In many cases we have been able to restore an otherwise sickly tree to a more optimal state of health, and at a fraction of the cost of removal.
