TPS has over 30 years experience planting hundreds of thousands of trees, diagnosing, treating nutrient deficiencies, Bur Oak Blight, Emerald Ash Borer and all other tree diseases and funguses. We have worked alongside several professional companies, of which, very few are properly trained or are interested in project completion and labor time over tree health. Sadly, this apathy may not be noticeable for several years.
Arborist (ISA Certified) & Tree and Boulevard Restoration Specialist
>>> Do you ever notice trees that look to be in poor health?
>>> Do you ever notice beautiful trees that snap, lose limbs during a storm?
>>> Do you ever notice trees that turn fall colors much sooner than others?
>>> Do you ever notice trees that seem to drip constant sap (honeydew)?
>>> Do you ever notice trees that don't seem to grow much over the years?
Most problems begin with improper selection and planting. Lack of training your trees (pruning for proper structure) is detrimental to its long term health. Trees are a valuable investment, yet almost daily, I see trees in poor health that could've been avoided. That's why we decided to add to my experience to become an ISA Certified Arborist. After many years of witnessing improper tree practices, I'm providing a service to help home owners, developers, cities and government agencies protect their investment and provide proper care, installment, and consulting, as well as, inspecting the work of other contractors.
Improper Tree Installation
Always hire an educated professional. This oak tree is a example of improper planting four years ago. The girdling roots show that the tree was in the beginning stages of decline and was easily removed from original planting hole.
Improper Paver Installation
As for Landscaping and Hardscaping we do it all. You should always consider why the cheapest contractor is the cheapest. It's easy to do a patio or paver driveway cheap, but done incorrectly and/or without the proper base failure is bound to happen as you can see above.
Natural Fire Restoration
My experiences with trees have not only been throughout the state of Minnesota. I have also spent much time after the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in the state of California, diagnosing fire damaged trees and overseeing several tree removal companies in Paradise California.
