A visual inspection for signs of poor structure, decay, weak branch unions, cracks, cankers, and accumulation of dead wood can all indicate the health of your tree. The species of tree will dictate care options while other species have finite lifespans and decline will be indicative of age.
ArborVation uses specialized access equipment to make the most of 36" gates, in addition to cranes when 'up and over' is the best option. Our crew communicates through bluetooth headsets and helmet integrated headsets that keep everyone on the site in constant contact. Crane operators and equipnent operators also use headsets so clear directions can be given rather than signaling.
We frequently use our equipment to "clean the slate" for landscapers and homeowners who are capable of installing new plants, but not prepared to tear out the existing landscape. most yards can be cleared out in one a day.
Forestry mulching is most effective in places where the soil benefits from not being disturbed. If you're looking at starting a consruction project that calls for clean soil, mulching may be the wrong first step. But for removing vegetation and undesirable trees in natural areas, thinning dense forest, and getting overgrown land worked back into a maintainable state, forestry mulching is usually the most cost effective option.
In scenarios where horses could go lame stepping on flush ground stumps, we have intentionally left stumps a few inches tall, marked them, and then used our remote control stump grinder on tracks to mill them down below grade before grooming the property with the mulcher. This way the finished product is free of holes, mulch mounds, and problem stumps.
Our forestry mulchers leave roots in the ground to retain soil while shredding everything visible above ground. The remaining mulch slows run off and makes for a good seed bed when planting grass.
We often use recycled concrete and various types of rip rap to build durable seawalls in places that could not be retained by means of conventional bulkhead. Bulky rock and recycled material is used to retain the slope, while filter fabric and geogrid help stablize the soil behind the wall. In scenarios where trees are jeopardized by erosion, we have pumped fill material back under the roots once damage to the face of the slope has been remediated.
