When Should I Schedule a Tree Inspection?

Scheduling regular tree inspections is crucial for maintaining the health, safety, and beauty of your landscape. Ideally, your trees should be inspected at least once a year, preferably in the spring. This timing allows for the assessment of any winter damage and provides a clear view of the tree’s health before it fully enters the growing season. 

Additionally, you may want to consider scheduling an inspection after a severe weather event, such as a nasty storm or prolonged period of drought. These conditions can cause immediate and significant damage to trees and potentially make them safety hazards. You should also not wait to schedule an inspection if you notice any signs of disease, pest infestation, or any changes in the tree's appearance, such as discolored leaves, premature leaf drop, or the development of weak branches. By adhering to these guidelines, you can ensure the longevity and vitality of your trees and contribute to a safer and more beautiful environment.

What We Look for During a Tree Inspection

When conducting your complimentary tree inspection, our experienced and certified arborists at Willow Tree and Landscape Services will perform a thorough examination to ensure the health and safety of your trees and property. 

  • One of our primary focuses is the structural integrity of each tree. This involves scrutinizing each tree's trunk for any signs of damage – such as cracks, cavities, or decay – which could compromise the tree's stability. Our experts also pay close attention to the root zone, searching for signs of upheaval or rot that could indicate poor health or a risk of toppling in adverse weather conditions.
  • Another critical aspect of our Huntingdon Valley tree inspections is the assessment of each tree's canopy and foliage. Our professionals look for uniformity in the distribution of leaves and branches, which can reveal a tree's vitality and structural balance. We will examine leaves for indicators of disease or pest infestation, such as discoloration, spots, or the presence of insects. The appearance of deadwood or excessive dead branches is also a significant concern, as it not only points to potential health issues but also poses a risk of falling and causing damage or injury. 
  • Our arborists will evaluate the overall growth and development of each tree, comparing each against expected growth patterns for its species and age. This includes checking for the presence of new growth and the development of buds, which are positive indicators of a healthy tree. Any abnormalities in growth, such as dwarfed leaves, stunted growth, or poor branch attachment, might suggest underlying issues that require attention. 
  • The presence of external elements like fungi, mushrooms, or abnormal growths at the base of the tree or on its trunk can signal internal decay or disease. Our professionals are trained to identify these signs and offer recommendations for treatment or management to prevent further deterioration.

Our comprehensive tree inspection process is designed to catch potential problems early, allowing for timely intervention that can not only save imperiled trees but also protect your property and surrounding landscape from potential harm. You can trust each step of our inspection will be conducted with meticulous care. 

Customized Plant Healthcare Programs

After completing our inspection of your property, we will prepare and present a personalized set of recommendations that address any concerns we have about the health and safety of your trees and shrubs. We are happy to answer your questions and explain why we are recommending what we are recommending.

Based on what we find during your Huntingdon Valley tree inspection, we may recommend one or more of the following services:

  • Tree trimmingRegular tree trimming can help ensure your landscape always looks its best. It can prevent safety hazards, such as falling branches, from causing injury or property damage. Regular trimming is especially important for trees located near power lines, buildings, or areas frequented by people.
  • Tree pruningTree pruning focuses on selectively removing parts like branches, buds, or roots to improve a tree's structure, promote healthy growth, and enhance fruit production or flower blooming. Pruning is necessary to remove dead or diseased branches that can lead to further decay, to improve light penetration and air circulation within the canopy, and to maintain or reduce a tree's height and spread for safety reasons. It's also essential for shaping young trees to establish a strong and desirable form as they grow.
  • Tree fertilizationWe can identify trees and shrubs that would benefit from fertilization to increase vitality and health.
  • Tree and shrub disease and insect controlOur experienced and knowledgeable arborists are experts at diagnosing insect and disease problems, often before any symptoms have become obvious. We are constantly researching the best and safest treatments for tree insects and diseases.
  • Tree removalTree removal, though often considered a last resort, becomes necessary under certain conditions. This includes instances where a tree is dead or dying without the possibility of recovery, posing safety risks to people, property, or nearby trees. Additionally, removal may be warranted if a tree is causing or has the potential to cause damage to foundations, sidewalks, or underground utilities due to its root system. It may also be best to remove trees that are irreparably damaged by storms, disease, or pests.
  • Stump removal and grindingStump removal and grinding are critical follow-up procedures after a tree is removed, aimed at eliminating the remaining stump and roots from the ground. This process not only helps to reclaim the space for aesthetic reasons or new plantings but also prevents the stump from becoming a breeding ground for pests and fungi.
