What exactly is tree care anyway?

Tree Care is a holistic approach to evaluating a tree’s health and needs. Tree Care involves many aspects of proper care and maintenance of a tree. The most important aspect of tree care is the ability for an arborist to observe, analyze, and assess a trees overall health. Once an assessment has been made of a tree, a proper action plan is recommended and performed. This action can range from no maintenance at all, to pruning or even removal of a tree.

Tree Care Procedures

Tree Pruning

There are many types of tree pruning. The most common method for pruning a tree involves pruning the deadwood. This is a healthy and natural form of maintenance. Many times, pruning the deadwood out of a tree is a recommended maintenance plan. It is appropriate to prune deadwood in a tree so the tree can avoid any diseased or open wounds that a dead limb can possess and possibly kill the tree.

Methods of pruning trees are as follows:

Tree Care Maintenance Plans

Many of our clients have an abundance of trees on their land that need assessment and advice on tree care maintenance plans. Kenny Tree Inc has multiple certified Arborists on staff who can provide natural, detailed, and useful tree maintenance plans. For many tree species, depending on a trees age and size, it is good common maintenance to prune at least once every couple years.


Many tree and landscape contractors will recommend spraying trees for insecticides, herbicides, and pesticides. Kenny Tree Inc. does not do any spraying of the trees, however we may make recommendations for IPM (integrated pest management practices). Kenny Tree Inc. believes in 100% organic tree care. There are occasions when a tree might need to be sprayed or have a systemic injection. Usually spraying or injection is appropriate only when a common issue is observed such as severe disease. Horticulture oils and soaps are a good alternative and usually provide great help to a tree in need. Keep in mind, that a good tree philosophy is that a tree can normally and usually does take care of itself and its wise to let nature run its course!

Though the work can be dangerous and could cause damage, rest assured that your property will be protected as if it were our own. Kenny Tree Inc. is fully licensed and insured.
