  1. Mom and I get to plant trees tomorrow. She has to take care of them all summer so that means lots of hikes for me. She needs me to help her dig the holes and I'm happy to do it for her. I love digging.

  2. If you have a lot of trees around your house, they can be a potential cause of damage to your roof. During storms, branches may snap and it’s even possible for trees to fall onto your roof. Make sure you regularly maintain your trees. If branches are growing close to the roof, you should trim them back. Check them before storms to make sure they are stable. Trees can also lead to a lot of debris collecting on your roof. This includes leaves and twigs that can lead to trapped water that may cause mold, algae, and other damage to your roof. Keep this debris clear. Cutting back your trees can help prevent further debris.

  3. To help keep your family safe from a dryer fire, clean the lint screen before or after drying each load of clothes. According to FEMA, failure to clean the dust, fiber, and lint from dryers is the leading contributing factor to the ignition of dryer fires.

  4. We offer you an environmental-friendly solution to clearing your forested area and creating trails by offering affordable Eastern North Carolina mulching and brush cutting services.

  9. When transplanting a tree or shrub, dig a trench around the plant about 30 cm wider than the spread of the limbs or branches. Be sure to guide the shovel blade straight down to minimize the disturbance to the roots.

  10. Trees give off oxygen that we need to breathe. Trees reduce the amount of storm water runoff, which reduces erosion and pollution in our waterways and may reduce the effects of flooding. Many species of wildlife depend on trees for habitat. Trees provide food, protection, and homes for many birds and mammals.

  11. As a tree grows, defective branches and watersprouts are found in the tree's crown from time to time. If these are not removed in a timely manner, the condition may worsen and affect the overall health of the tree. Message me

  12. Homeowners can control the growth of their trees through tree pruning. Regular pruning makes it easier to maintain a tree. When completed in summer, trimming limits tree growth while fall or winter trimming encourages more growth.

  13. A lot of times, a tree can become so familiar that it’s hard to imagine what your yard would be like without it. They’re beautiful, they create shade, attract wildlife, and make a lovely sound in the breeze, but sometimes an old or decaying tree can be much more harm to keep than it’s worth. It is often a difficult decision to let a tree go, but it’s important to look at the big picture. Consider the future of your property and how the tree is likely to progress.
