Tree Protection and Development Services
Fort Worth Arborist Co. offers detailed tree protection relative to construction activities. For example, we implement the Best Management Practices, created by the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA, 2008) to closely monitor the health of your trees. Our Construction and Development program involves pre-construction services such as inventory, tree surveying, and permitting. Compliance services are also a standard component of the program.
We will gladly plant the tree species of your choice. If you are unsure what type of tree would best compliment your landscape and home, we will make various suggestions that have the best survival rate in your area. We implement proper planting techniques that adhere to the ANSI A-300 standards for tree installation, so you can feel confident in the service for which you are paying.
Pruning or Removal Services
When we perform tree pruning services, our tree care professionals abide by ANSI A-300 tree pruning standards. We are shade and ornamental tree pruning specialists, but we also offer large scale shrub and vine maintenance services. Usually a pruning crew will include three members: two climbers and one ground supervisor. The debris that results from pruning will normally be cleared from the project site at the end of each working day.
We will also remove trees that have died, or are hazardous.Tree removal is a hazardous practice that should be left to qualified professionals. Fort Worth Arborist Co. can safely remove trees that are in complicated positions. We are experienced and insured for your protection in the event that a difficult removal is needed.
