Tip # 1 Ask Questions, Be Informed – Before hiring a prospective tree service, it is a good idea to ask questions to determine the quality of service you can expect to receive. A certified and professional tree service should have no problem providing answers to these questions: • Do you carry insurance? • Will you provide a written estimate? • What kind of safety gear do you use? • Are you an International Society of Arboriculture certified arborist? • How will you protect my yard from equipment damage?

The Certified Arborists at Stevenson Tree Care are happy to answer any questions you may have. Tip # 2 Fertilize Your Trees – Soil in an urban environment has many factors that limit its ability to provide the nutrients, moisture, and structure necessary for healthy trees to survive and thrive.

Tip # 3 Aerate the Lawn – Aeration is one of the most important steps in creating and maintaining a healthy lawn. It allows for rejuvenation from excessive foot traffic and weather-related stress while improving soil health. The process of aeration involves perforating the soil with small holes to allow water, air, and nutrients to reach the root layer. This promotes deeper root growth and improves the overall quality of the turf.
