tree trimming and tree removal

Whether you have trees in need of corrective pruning or trees which simply must be removed, J. H. Hart Urban Forestry stands ready to lend assistance. Our crews are thoroughly trained in the latest pruning and removal techniques to provide a level of service unsurpassed in the industry.

There are a variety of goals to be achieved through the corrective pruning of both trees and shrubs. Better light penetration and the elevation of lower limbs will aid in the health and vigor of surrounding lawns and landscaping, while making the tree itself more structurally sound and aesthetically appealing. Corrective pruning may also eliminate hazardous conditions created corrective pruningby storm damage and dead or diseased limbs.

Our staff of professional arborists are available to assist you in recommending the best course of action to protect and enhance the quality of your property.


stump grinding

Once a tree is removed, the remaining stump is often not just unsightly, but may pose a safety hazard. We have the ability to grind stumps six to eight inches below grade to allow for restoration of the natural landscape topography.


insect and disease control

Insect and Disease Control
While many dynamics may combine to impede the growth and vitality of trees and shrubs, insects and disease remain the principal culprits. Our Plant Health Care Program has a broad spectrum of tools available to combat the wide variety of insects and disease which may threaten the health of your landscape.

Proper fertilization is essential to the health and vitality of your trees and shrubs. Slow release deep root fertilization is accomplished with a pressurized probe inserted in a grid pattern beneath the canopy of the tree and, when appropriate, extending beyond the drip line. This method of fertilization provides the added benefit of moisture infusion and soil aeration within the root zone. Fertilization may also be provided through micro trunk injections.
