The Best Tree Services for Early Spring

Published On: March 3rd, 20223 min read

If there’s one thing that keeps us going through the cold winter months it’s that better weather is coming. As we approach spring, the promise of warmth, sunshine and new growth lingers in the air.

This means that it’s the perfect time to prepare your lawn for the start of spring and the summer months to come. The winter months can be harsh on your vegetation – whether it’s your lawn, shrubbery, or the strength of the trees in your yard. You want to make sure that they’re ready for the spring flourish that’s to come with the best tree services.

Here are the early spring tree services you should prioritize:

Tree Pruning

As the end of winter approaches and spring nears, this is the ideal time to look at tree pruning. While different types of trees have different growth cycles, it’s generally a good idea to hire a professional tree company to assess the extent of pruning your trees need.

Most trees do best when they’re pruned in the early spring, around the months of February and March. This gives the tree enough time to heal from inflicted cuts during the pruning process. It also allows for a healthy flourish of growth and keeps pests and diseases at bay as the warm weather approaches.

If you have fruit trees in your yard, consider hiring tree services in the late winter. If you have deciduous trees, it’s best to prune them in the early spring during the months of February-April.

Stump Grinding

If you’ve recently had a tree or two cut down during the winter months, or before the cold weather set in, you’re likely left behind with pesky old stumps in your yard. These stumps are a major inconvenience as the spring weather approaches and you need to begin mowing your lawn more regularly.

Leaving old stumps in your yard creates an unnecessary obstacle — you’ll have to weed whack around it! Instead, opt for an early spring stump grinding service that removes this obstacle for you. You can then replant grass seed in its place for a green, flourishing lawn.

Tree Cabling

By the end of winter/early spring, most of the trees in your yard are still quite bare as the leaves have yet to flush out. This is the perfect time to scope out the integrity of the branching structure of these trees.

It gives you the opportunity to identify weak branch unions and call in for tree cabling services where necessary. This is important as it adds extra support to these branches during the growing season.

Tree Removal

While the full removal of a tree is often a last resort, certain tree diseases can pose a real threat to the rest of your yard. It’s better to risk losing one tree, than them all.

The best time of year to hire a tree removal service is as soon as possible. And at the start of spring, you might want to hire a professional arborist to assess the state of a tree that needs attention. With their expertise, they’ll be able to identify what’s wrong with your tree and whether complete removal is necessary.

We had the A-team on our big job of 14+ trees (13 dead ash) in 3 different areas of our property, none of which were particularly easy to get to. With the added bonus of having drainage throughout the yard and avoiding the septic tank. I had 3 other companies come and look, one ghosted me!! 1 came and said no thank you, the third gave me a similar quote to Justin's, but you could tell he didn't want the job and wasn't as clear about how he'd go about it. Justin came in and was completely confident on how his team could get it done. And with a bucket truck - no cranes needed. (two of the above were talking cranes). Kyle, Kyle and Not Kyle (Cody) were great!! They worked hard and got it all done in 3 days!! They were nice, easy to talk to, piled the massive amount of trees in a great spot for the log truck. I thought taking down dead trees wouldn't open things up that much, but wow did it! I love how open and cleared out everything looks!! Lindsey and Kate were fabulous and accommodating talking about the cost of the job and log truck. And now I can add flowers and plants in the brighter area. FYI probably not going to plant trees... but some rhodies if I can keep the deer off them. (O: Thank you to ArborTech!! Cheers, until I can budget for the backyard.

The tree estimate and removal process had a quick turnaround (one week) and was coordinated around my schedule. Very accommodating. The team that showed up for the job was very professional and asked questions along the way to better meet my needs. Very affordable and highly recommend to anyone needing work done with trees!

I more than appreciate great workers...your crew is amazing! the physical ability, the mathematical knowledge even if innate, and the eye for art (cleaning up my white pines to beautiful trees) is a hard combo to find in someone. Your climber has all those skills and more. Your pricing was very reasonable! The care your crew took to ensure everything was clean and in better condition than when they came was more than apreciated by me. Even my neighbors said something! Thank you! I will call you again for future tree maintenance!

We enjoy working with the Arbortech team, from start to finish. Professional and respectful. We just had 8, 100 ft + trees removed and could not be happier with the results. We recommend Arbortech.
Arbortech is a great business to deal with. They did a big job quickly, professionally, and left our property in good condition. Lindsey, Justin, and their crews were all terrific. Highly recommend.

I needed to have a large Norway maple tree removed and wanted to get at least three estimates. Eric's tree service came out and gave me a somewhat reasonable quote of $3500, then a week later before I had gotten another estimate from a different company Eric's tree service texted me and said they'd be in the area the following week, I called them and they said they had to revisit the estimate. They came back out continued to tell me her personal problems and that my neighbor would have to move his trailer. She then sent me a new quote of $7231!!! I called Arbortech and Justin came over on the day scheduled and was my most reasonable quote! He also said my neighbor wouldn't need to move his trailer. Justin and his crew arrived on time and did a phenomenal job!! They are true professionals! They cleaned up everything. They had had to remove a fence panel and when they put it back it was more secure than it had been when it had been originally installed. Justin's quote was $4700 less than Eric's! This experience with Arbortech was purely positive I highly recommend this company! Thank you Justin, Lindsey and the rest of the crew, you guys rock!!

The service I received from everyone at Arbortech for a tree removal was absolutely wonderful. Any questions and concerns I had were answered and reassured. Justin and Lindsey were both so helpful and the value I paid for this service was outstanding. Super reasonable, and I would recommend Arbortech to anyone in need of any tree service. Super grateful and happy. If I could figure out how to add pictures to my review, I would. They did an incredible job with not just the tree removal itself, but also with a brush pile I also had taken care of. Again, highly recommend Arbortech for anyone who is in need of any type of tree service. Couldn’t be more pleased!
