At Adelaide Arborists we have full time Certified Arborists on staff . A Certified Arborist is the top of the line in the tree service industry. The growth pattern and stability of your trees is something that we can help to control and create more safe environments if monitored properly. A Certified Arborist deals with the health and safety of individual plants and trees and offers a variety of services. Trees can be difficult and even dangerous to properly maintain. Many problems are easily solved when they are detected early.
Cabling – A less well known technique used by quailed arborists to give trees more support that are prone to risk of falling branches or complete failure due to leaning for example. There are several support system for trees but cabling is commonly used for extra support.
Bracing – Similar to cabling, bracing uses rods that can be inserted in weak fork unions usually in conjunction with cables higher in the crown. Sometimes called Rod Bracing, different materials are employed to carry out bracing work and when the situation allows non-invasive methods are primarily used.
Soil Aeration – Provides air supply underground by moving O2 and CO2 between the earth pores and the atmosphere. It helps avoid oxygen starvation in trees and reduces harmful carbon dioxide levels in the subsurface air if they rise too high.
Soil Replacement – Fresh soil is carefully replaced around existing roots and brought up to grade. The tree responds by regenerating additional roots in the fresh soil, especially if existing soil was compacted or chemically contaminated. This new technique needs much more evaluation before it becomes common practice for trees but works well when soil is compacted or for large shrub areas.
Root Collar Excavations – This process of removes the dirt from around the trunk of a tree to inspect the base. This is done to investigate the extent of decay that is present or to view the structure of the roots to see if there may be a girdling root issue.
Root Pruning – The process of cutting roots prior to mechanical excavation near a tree. Root pruning may be necessary to minimise damage to the tree’s root system during construction or in preparation for large tree transplanting.
Root Barriers – Often used in civil application where a physical underground wall is placed so that structures and plants may cohabit happily together. Used for stopping newly planted trees from damaging pipes and buildings. Nowadays they are commonly made from special plastics able to cope with major stresses.
Deep Root Fertilisation – This method is when liquid fertiliser is injected into the soil near the tree’s roots. Also known as soil injection, deep root fertilisation is applied with a long, narrow injection tool, providing a myriad of benefits to your trees.
Tree Spraying – This involves spraying your trees to protect them from diseases and insects. The particular chemicals that are used and their timing depend on the diseases and insects that have been identified and the correct timing for spraying.
