When is Scaffolding Used to Prune Trees?
September 11, 2017
Pruning tall trees in tight spaces can be tricky. When we can't climb, scaffolding is sometimes the answer. In this particular case, 27-foot-tall Italian Cypress growing closely together, and in close proximity to a fence and swimming pool, called for a strategic plan that didn't involve climbers.
The arborist, Laura McLarry, devised a work layout to maximize efficiency on the job, safeguard the client's property, allow the crew to work safely, and streamline cleanup.
The trees were suffering from both Seiridium Canker and Tip Blight. Pruning, soil aeration and soil injections of a custom formula were the prescription. Read on for more information on how we treat these health issues affecting Italian Cypress.
If your Italian Cypress are showing signs of distress, or brown patches such as the one's you'll see in photos at the above links, it's time to give us a call so we can prevent tree loss.
