Learn About Preserving Tree Life

Residential development is booming. New homes continue to go up at a fast rate and the suburbs keep growing. If your neighborhood falls into this category, you’re probably impacted by daily construction. So, if you have trees, pay attention. Trees can be endangered when proper precautions aren’t taken and construction problems occur. For this reason, trees are protected by tree preservation services. In fact, most counties in Northern Virginia require tree preservation policies to be followed prior to construction or renovation. We can help keep your trees safe from harm.

What is Tree Preservation?

Before any type of construction or renovation project is started, certain processes and services need to be performed to ensure that your trees have the very best chance for survival. The goal of the entire tree preservation process is to prevent tree damage that could be caused by machinery, soil changes and other construction side effects.

What's Involved?

When it comes to tree preservation, professional arborists must follow quite a few precautions. These typically include:

Deadwood Pruning

Learn more 

The first step involved in a tree preservation project is pruning back dead or dying limbs. This step should be performed carefully by a certified arborist, preferably one who follows the voluntary industry pruning standards known as ANSI A300. 

Tree preservation fencing

Learn more 

Trained arborists will surround trees with brightly colored fences to alert workers who operate heavy machinery to keep away. Experts will outline the trees’ critical root zone (CRZ) perimeter so construction workers know where they can and cannot work.

Root Preparation

Learn more 

Root pruning and root preparation—such as cushioning the ground-exposed root system with mulch—is always important prior to construction.

Compacted Soil Remediation

Learn more 

Soil and ground surrounding trees is often compacted during construction. To ensure trees grow safely after construction, irrigating the roots by a trained arborist once projects are finished is best to allow oxygen and water to reach the trees’ roots.
