Commercial Services

June 05, 2012 044Properties that have commercial operations, homeowners associations, and rental properties often have different site uses and management needs for their trees. Along with the desire for attractive properties and receiving the benefits from the trees, risk management is a high priority. Trees are usually the largest infrastructure investment on properties after the structures. Large trees are not easily replaced. Trees also can present a risk that may not be well-managed.

Commercial services are provided in a manner that considers the use and risk on the site, needs of the trees, and available budget. Sotelo’s ISA Certified Arborist will visit the site, perform a simple inventory and help develop a multi-year management plan that maintains the trees in an acceptable risk and condition. We help you understand the needs of your trees and formulate our programs to your budget.

Often, the landscape maintenance contractor working on a site is unaware of the irrigation needs and proper maintenance practices for the trees on the site. Unintentionally, they may mis-prune, over or under irrigate, or bury tree trunks with soil, mulch, or groundcover. We prefer to coordinate with your landscape maintenance operations to improve the environment the trees are growing in and save you money over the life of your trees.

Our ISA Certified Arborists will visit your site, perform a visual assessment, and provide a free estimate for the care of your trees.

  • Site inspection and review of tree population

Residential Services

IMG_7368Our homes are usually the biggest, most important investments we make. A well-maintained landscape is important to the look of our homes, and trees are the biggest, longest lasting, least replaceable feature of most landscapes.

Residential services are provided for owner occupied properties with the intent to assist in the management of the trees on your property. Some properties have one or two significant trees. Some properties have many trees. Trees may vary for their importance and benefits to a specific site ranging from shade, screening, framing views, air quality, stormwater interception, and landscape features. Our mission at Sotelo’s is to provide the services to help your trees grow to contribute to your property. Large trees take a long time to grow and are not easily replaced. We just can’t replace a large tree by planting a new tree.

Managing Trees – Tree Maintenance

IMG_7375All trees require regular maintenance. Regular doesn’t have to be every year or every other year. Maintenance includes pruning as well as a plant care program to increase overall health and vigor; and manage disease and pest thresholds. Young tree care can be performed by properly trained people with hand pruners, hand saws, and pole tools. However, the care must be done properly to industry standards, regardless of tree size. More tree structure is damaged with hand pruners and loppers than chain saws. Correctly pruning young trees is probably the best investment that can be made, and will reduce many future expenses and unplanned failures.

When trees become larger, they are more difficult to work on, generate a larger amount of debris, branches can be heavy and large, and require the skills to climb and perform proper work to industry standards. Continuously pruning trees for structure, risk management, and pest and disease control are part of the commitment to living among trees.

A plant health care program and regular structural pruning is essential for young and established trees. This will establish a crown that will be free of critical defects and less likely to lose large limbs as the tree grows larger. We perform our pruning to industry standards and develop the objective and outcome with you for the reason we are caring for your trees. We then perform the work in a high quality manner and respect your property.

Please let us provide a proposal for caring for your trees. We will train you and your landscaper in young tree care practices. Contact us at Sotelo’s Tree Care, Inc. and our ISA Certified Arborist will visit your site and we’ll help you care for your trees.
