Our Certified Arborists have decades of experience consulting on and landscape and construction projects both large and small. When an existing landscape should be considered, there is no standard formula for preservation concerns. We carefully assess each unique project before setting a customized, detailed plan into action.
Construction projects can be stressful on your landscape and, without planning, can create unforeseen challenges. We can provide thorough guidance on tree preservation and create an actionable plan to protect your property.
Potential services could include:
Soil around trees and shrubs can become so compact that it acts like concrete, preventing air and water from reaching the roots. Plantings growing near driveways and hard surfaces can also suffer from insufficient air and water. Air spading uses high pressure air to loosen the soil around roots without damaging the root system.
Air spading is also the preferred method for excavating root collars and transplanting bare root trees since it preserves 90% - 100% of the plant’s root system.
Air spading around an older tree can help expose the root flare and reveal better information about structural integrity, signs of decay, improper root systems and girdling. This allows for better corrective actions to promote health and prolong the tree’s life.
A tree can require cabling for a variety of reasons; it is often beneficial in mature trees whose structure cannot fully support its weight. Cabling and/or bracing can reinforce the structural integrity of trees by redistributing weight and offering additional support. One of our certified arborists would be happy to evaluate your trees for potential risks and cabling needs.
I am so impressed by you and your team! Everyone I interacted with was professional, kind, courteous & helpful. It is so rare these days that a company exceeds your expectations and you have done just that.
Our neighbors on the street were in awe of the professionalism, speed of service, politeness and great job your team did.
(Your crew) made intricate and potentially dangerous work look routine. Everyone did a great job working together and cleaning up. The neighbors are also impressed and pleased. We are all excited about the possibilities for both yards now that the trees are out. I know it was a lot of work for you to put this job together and I appreciate your patience and diplomacy in dealing with all the parties involved.
Thank you very much! You have just increased the value of my house! Kind regards!
I also wanted to express my sincere thanks to you for your attention throughout the job and to your crews for an unbelievable job. Their assessment of what to cut and when and where was so precise, I knew I had selected the best of the best. Very professional, on time and clean up was so amazing it’s like the tree was never there.
From start to finish-initial phone call through final clean-up- I was so impressed with this company. I was a little nervous watching the entire process but felt reassured by the men’s calm demeanor and confidence as they worked. They worked quickly but carefully. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Maltby & Co. to anyone.
They were excellent. They were spotless. When I came home there wasn’t one piece of evidence that anyone had been there, it was neat as a pin.
Our campus is brighter and completely transformed. Because of your hard work and enthusiasm, we added 14 beautiful new trees, 13 new bushes and 125 plants. A well maintained and beautiful campus represents an important visual expression of our commitment to those we serve.
I can’t say enough about Maltby Co., and your high level of professionalism and honesty. It is refreshing nowadays to know that there are still some great businesses out there that really care about their customers.
It was clear that Maltby’s commitment to safety is thorough and sincere.
The take down of our two diseased trees was accomplished quickly and without incident and was less noisy than our neighbor’s routine lawn care. The crew left the site very neat and even swept the street!
I gained a real appreciation for what an air spade can do.
I cannot imagine anyone doing this job more competently and professionally.
I wanted to tell you that your crew was extremely professional, courteous and friendly. They went out of their way to explain what was going to happen during the day and treated me with the utmost respect. (They) worked very hard…did an outstanding job cleaning up and took every safety precaution you could think of. I was so impressed with their work!
