Successful Tree Recovery For Homeowners: Care Of Trees After A Storm

storm damaged trees call Michigan tree experts

Recently the mid-Michigan area, especially Ionia, Grand Ledge, Portland, Michigan suffered a devastating storm that damaging long standing buildings and many mature and newly planted trees. Even if your home is located in Okemos, East Lansing or Charlotte, Michigan and you did not have a tornado all of the lower Michigan area has experienced high level winds and storms this season.

 After a strong summer storm there’s a high likelihood some of your trees might have become damaged. If any of the trees on your property have undergone significant damage you’ll want to evaluate your course of action for taking care of trees after a storm.

Some property owners simply leave their damaged trees up after the storm, or clear cut their damaged trees. However, it’s very important you consult a local tree service to have your trees inspected after a storm, as there are numerous treatment options available.

Below you’ll find three of the most common tree-care procedures to follow after a big storm.

1. Save The Tree

More often than not a tree will tend to look worse than it actually is following a large storm. Trees are very resilient and can usually recover from storm damage, especially if they’re a local tree species that are used to weather variations.

If the tree has only sustained minor damage, such as, sustaining a low level of broken branches, the tree can usually be saved.

If the tree is a more mature tree that has suffered the loss of a major branch, the tree can be saved as long as the branch doesn’t affect the overall structural integrity of the tree.

Lastly, younger trees are very resilient and can recover fairly quickly because they’re in a very high growth phase of their life cycle. By removing the damaged and broken branches, you’ll be giving the tree the chance for a speedy recovery.

2. Give The Tree A Grace Period

Sometimes the best course of action can be to wait and see what happens to the tree. Trees that have sustained significant damage and look like they’re on the way out can actually still recover if given the proper time and treatment.

Make sure you don’t cut too many branches off the damaged tree, as they’ll need their foliage in order to gain energy to heal.

It’s important to consult with a professional during this stage,. A tree service professional will be able to prune the correct number of limbs to increase the chances of a speedy recovery.

3. Cut The Tree, And Move On

On occasion you’ll have a tree, or series of trees, that simply aren’t worth saving. If the tree has already been hit with a bought of disease, or has been previously weakened the best course of action could be to simply cut your losses.

If the trunk has split, or the crown of the tree has been removed, then this tree won’t have the ability to recover. Once a large portion of the tree has been lost, the tree won’t have the necessary foliage or support to survive the next growing season, or even survive another large storm.

Trees that have toppled have little chance of survival and need to be disposed of in an effective manner. Ayles tree service can come in a clear your land of the downed tress. Tree trunks and branches can be cut and either left for the homeowner to use in wood burners or bonfires. If the homeowner prefers Ayle’s Tree Service will put all branches and wood into a wood shredder as they are completing the tree clean up from the storm. Successfully taking care of trees after a big storm is a large task, in order to do it effectively you must work with a seasoned tree service professional. Once a storm damaged and fallen tree has been cleaned and removed from your property Ayles can also assist Michigan homeowners with stump grinding or stump removal.

Work With A Professional with Care of Trees after a Storm

Damaged trees can pose significant danger to your property and those who reside there. Immediately following a large storm it’s important to consult with a professional to determine if any trees are a potentially hazardous.

For example, fallen trees and limbs can pose a threat to utility wires, and walking areas. If any trees have fallen into dangerous areas it’s important to have them removed as soon as possible, so they don’t create any further damage.

After storm recovery can be an arduous task and you’ll want to have the help of a qualified arborist to determine the health of your trees and best plan of attack for the continued safety of your property.

How To Protect Your Trees

If you have any trees on your property you’ll want to do what you can to ensure their long-term health. Luckily, trees are very resilient, so you don’t have to do a ton of maintenance work to keep them in good shape. A good long-term tree health plan will help to prevent issues before they arise, and keep your trees healthy and flourishing for years to come.

Why You Need To Protect Your Trees

As far as landscape elements are concerned trees are by far the most resilient, and require the least amount of care. However, that doesn’t mean they require no maintenance and upkeep to ensure they remain protected.

Trees are especially vulnerable to heavy winds, infection and disease, damage to their root system, and much more. Below you’ll find our recommended strategies for dealing with the most common tree protection issues.

Common Tree Protection Methods

Keeping your trees healthy can actually end up saying you money in the long run. By implementing a few tree protection methods you’ll be able to avoid costly repairs and potential damage to your home and landscape.

1. Tree Cabling and Bracing

Tree cabling and bracing can be used for a few different reasons. The main reason this process is used is to prevent trees from growing in a way that causes them to break. By cabling and bracing certain branches you can force the tree to grow in a way, so that its structural integrity stays intact.

This will prevent tree toppling, broken branches, and prevent the tree from splitting or cracking during a rough storm.

2. Trimming and Pruning

Trimming and pruning is another way to influence the direction and growth pattern of a tree. This can be done to influence its growth pattern, get rid of dead or infected branches, and cut down branches that might be close to damaging elements like power lines.

Trimming and pruning can help to mitigate potential problems before they become a nuisance.

3. Be Aware Of Root Structures

It’s important to know how wide of a root base your tree has. The roots of the tree not only keep the tree upright, but also are how the tree uptakes nutrients. By knowing how wide the root structures extend you’ll be able to avoid damage from a construction project, or anything else that might damage the roots and lead to the tree’s demise.

If you are going to begin a construction project it’s a good idea to mark off the root beds to avoid potential damage.

4. Mulch On A Regular Basis

Applying mulch to the base of your tree will help to keep your trees growing strong. Adding an inch or two of mulch on a consistent basis will help to keep the soil free from weeds and at a consistent level of moisture.

This will also give you a boundary that will prevent the trunks of trees from becoming damaged due to a cut from yard and lawn maintenance equipment.

If you’re interested in a regular tree maintenance plan, want to protect your trees, or are interested in having the trees on your property inspected, then give us a call at 517-484-8381.

Let Ayles Tree Service take care of your tree and landscape needs, so you can have a healthy and productive landscape for years to come.

There’s a process you’ll want to go through step-by-step in order to ensure your site is entirely prepped to build, as well as all trees and plants will remain in good condition.

The Site Clearing Agenda

Before you can begin the building process you’ll need to ensure the site is thoroughly prepped. Below we dive into common lot and land clearing processes that will help prep your land for the next step in the construction process.

The first step is assessing the land. This is where all trees, shrubs, and land formations are documented in accordance to your construction plan. Since site clearing is the foundational step in the building process this is something you’ll want to get right so there are no problems r misunderstandings.

2. Common Clearing Methods

The site clearing methods used will depend upon your land, and the natural features you want to maintain. That being said some of the most common tasks are as follows:

  • Clearing the site of all vegetation, trees, rocks, and other formations
  • Leveling the site
  • Grading the site
  • Staking the structure zones
  • Digging for foundation placement
  • Implementing measures for erosion control
  • Drilling for wells and other systems

The exact methods and tasks used will depend upon the state of the land and the goals for your project. If there are trees or other natural elements you want to keep it is very important to note this prior to hiring a company for your lot and land clearing in mid-Michigan

3. Types Of Equipment

There are several types of equipment that will be used to clear your lot. This can range from simple hand clearing tools, all the way up to bulldozers to flatten the land. The equipment employed for the job will depend on how much land you need cleared, and the vegetation you currently have present.

Luckily, we have the tools and equipment on hand to handle any type of clearing job.

4. Minimizing Tree Stress

One common request is landowners looking to preserve certain trees on their property. We employ a method that minimizes tree stress, by marking out a perimeter that surrounds the root zone.

This will ensure none of your trees become damaged throughout the construction, or remainder of the clearing process.

Common Costs In Site Preparation

The overall costs of site clearing are once again, dependent on the size of your lot, and the overall intensiveness of the process. But, on a rough estimate, costs usually range from $3 to $6 per square foot.

Emerald Ash Borer and Tree Removal: 4 Things You Need To Know

Tree damaged by Emerald Ash Borer and Tree RemovalIt’s Spring again in mid-Michigan, but with the sunshine and heat comes one thing we never count on: critters. In the Lansing area, the emerald ash borer is a scourge that often means tree removal and other problems. But, before you throw up your hands in frustration, be sure to educate yourself first. The emerald ash borer can be a serious pain to the home and business owner, but you don’t have to deal with it by yourself!

Know Where It Came From: The Emerald Ash Borer

This particular kind of beetle (the “EAB”) was first discovered in Michigan about a decade ago. It threatens ash trees specifically, as it is an invasive species not native to the area and Michigan ash trees have no resistance to this invader. It is thought that EAB came to Michigan via a cargo ship, likely riding on wood products or shipping materials. Although the Department of Natural Resources is working on control and eradication, the beetle continues to be a problem in the area.

EAB and Tree Removal: It May Take Several Seasons

The truth is that the EAB can infest healthy and sick trees. An already-compromised tree may succumb to the pest within 1-2 years, whereas a healthy tree may survive 3-4 seasons before you have to take action.

If you’re unsure of the extent or length of your infestation, Ayles Tree Service is happy to take a look at your particular case and provide you with some one-on-one guidance. Call us at 517-484-8318 to set up an appointment for us to come to your home or site.

Emerald Ash Borer: Tree Removal Isn’t Your Only Option

Once you discover an EAB infestation on your property, you’ll need to decide how to treat your ash trees. Ayles Tree Service offers complete front-to-back service with consultation, removal of the tree and disposal of the material. The State of Michigan currently requires special care with disposal, and we’re more than able to take care of your ash tree material within these recommendations.

However, there are other options, and we’d be happy to go over those with you. Sometimes ash trees can be saved with a consistent annual treatment program, however, such programs are time intense and expensive. Again, we’re able to consult on your specific situation. 

After Emerald Ash Borer: You CAN Plant Again

Emerald Ash Borer and tree removal doesn’t mean you’re left with an ugly, bare spot on your property. Here at Ayles Tree Service, we are more than happy to go over options in moving forward with concerned home and business owners. A removed tree doesn’t have to mean an eyesore. Other planting and landscape options are available to you. Call us today for a free estimate.

The presence of Emerald Ash Borer doesn’t need to spell the end of your greenery. Let Ayles Tree Service help identify your trees and clean up your landscape to keep all your trees healthy.

Michigan Tree Service Debate: Is Winter the Best Season for Tree Pruning?

Is Winter the Best Season for Tree Pruning?  Winter tree branchesTaking care of your trees during Michigan winters can be a daunting prospect. You know that pruning your trees is not only healthy and helps them to ward off little pests, but that it also helps them to flourish. At the same time, pruning helps you to find and fend off any potentially problematic branches that could be a detriment to your property.

But is winter really the best time? There seems to be a bit of confusion on the topic, and perhaps even some debate. So, let’s look at the different aspects of tree pruning during Michigan winters. Ready? Debate!

Yes, Winter is the Best Time to Prune Your Trees

There are several advantages to trimming while your trees are dormant. For example, it may help the plants to flourish at a time when their energy reserves are low. Pruning means that extra energy doesn’t need to go to the weakest points of the tree. This could mean a very healthy growth push come spring, and there’s definitely some advantage to that.

In addition to this, pruning in the winter may be easier on the owner and/or tree technician, because the view of the branches is much clearer without the foliage. This may ensure a good-quality pruning takes place. This additional clarity during the job may help with some of the safety aspects of pruning in the winter, too. It’s a bit more difficult to work with the snow, ice and wind, but a good, clear view means that the job is that much easier.

Pruning in the winter also gives the tree time to heal during the healthy spring growing season, whereas pruning in fall means less vigorous healing time for your plant.

Lastly, pruning in winter can mean less attacks by pests that carry disease, as such vermin aren’t as active in the winter season. Some varieties of critters are attracted to the fresh smell of a trimmed tree, and so avoiding the months when they are active helps your tree to avoid any problems.

No, Winter is Not the Best Time to Prune Your Trees

There are a few kinds of trees that should not be pruned in the winter, because they will then tend to produce a sap that can make a mess of your decks, patio or even your car. Pruning these kinds of trees is not best in the winter; you’ll need to wait for the summer months.

In addition, summer pruning works better for slowing the growth of a tree on purpose, since it also gets rid of the leaves that intake the plant’s fuel.

Lastly, some property owners prefer to trim in warmers months out of a sheer safety aspect. However, it should be noted that trained professional tree technicians like ours are accustomed to working in all weather, and take all pertinent safety precautions.

Conclusion: Winter and Tree Pruning

So, is winter the best season for tree pruning? Because of all the variables that go into tree trim work, there is no one clear answer contacting a professional for a bit of advice is your best bet. You can call Ayles Tree Service, or email us to set up an appointment with a free estimate. We can decide the best course of action for your particular situation based on kind of tree, its health status and the amount of pruning needed.

Dead Tree Removal – How do you know when it’s time?

dead-tree-removal-grand-ledge-michiganWhen is a good time to remove a dead tree?

Some people call Ayles Tree Service for dead tree removal at the first sign of a dying tree. Other customers weight options and choose to hold off removing a tree. The most important consideration for dead tree removal is if a dead tree is in danger of shedding large branches or falling and harming a person or valuable property. If the tree is a hazard it is a good idea to contact us for removal. If you have a dying tree located in a secluded area and there is no concern of branches falling and injuring others or harming property, you can choose to hold off removing the dead tree for a time.

How do you know if a tree is dying and can not be saved?

If more than 25% of the branches are broken or damaged the tree probably can not be saved. If branches are all on one side of a tree this is a sign of root or trunk damage. Leaning or lopsided trees can cause instability and falling hazards and should be looked at by a professional or the tree should be removed for safety. Another sign to pay attention are large clusters of fungi around the base of the tree. Masses of mushrooms that you have not seen around the tree previously  are often a symptom of internal rot and root damage.

What are the benefits of not removing a dead tree?

Even dying trees continue to provide value for a time. Besides the fact that trees offer a natural habitat for animals and birds, trees enhance the environment in other ways. Trees assist in keeping water and air clean, they help in retaining soil and providing shade. Besides the increased property value, some homeowners love their trees for the sentimental reasons. The beauty of the tree and the memories of  the tree when they purchased the property or when they planted the tree can make dead tree removal a difficult decision.


What are the benefits of removing a dead tree?

Some of the challenges of dead or dying trees that homeowners and commercial property owners encounter is constant clean up around the dying tree. Depending on the species, dying trees often shed their bark and limbs. Besides the danger of the falling debris there is also the expense of upkeep from the shedding that steadily increases as the life of the tree decreases.
