Here is a list of common questions that our clients ask us. If you need more information don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
The big difference is in training and certification. An certified tree trimmer has completed years of study and has a deeper understanding of plant life whereas a landscaper has no formal certified tree trimmer training. At Robert’s Tree Works, we are fully certified tree trimmers.
For all tree removals in West Palm Beach, we give our customers the option of whether they would like us to haul the wood away or whether they would prefer to keep it. In many cases, a removed tree can be a good source of firewood.
It depends on many factors, but there are many situations where having a certified tree trimmer report is necessary to remove trees from your property. Our team can assist with the report as well as with the tree removal process.
The pruning and trimming process can differ widely depending on the various tree and plant species involved. Call us out for a consultation and we’ll come up with the ideal pruning or trimming schedule based on your specific West Palm Beach property.
The fastest way to burn out a tree stump is by drilling holes in the stump, filling it up with fuel, lighting it up, and giving it time to burn out. Trying to speed up this process by adding more fuel is dangerous and might result in a fire hazard, so you will just have to have a little patience and let the stump burn out on its own. But an even faster and safer way of burning tree stumps is by hiring a team of professionals. We will estimate the stump condition, bring our fuel, and monitor the burning process until the stump is completely gone from your property.
Once a fire reaches a tree, it first hits the bark. Since the bark is the tree’s natural protection, it can hold up to a certain temperature, but any stronger fire will easily burn through it and reach the area under the bark, which is far more sensitive. Once the tubes that are carrying water and minerals get damaged, the water from the tree starts to evaporate and the carbon (tree-building material) combines with oxygen from the air, releasing CO2 to the atmosphere and turning organic matter into minerals-rich ash that will feed the soil it spreads on.
Trees lose limbs throughout the year, so it is not a surprise if your property has some fallen branches lying around. They also require regular pruning and trimming. And the best way to get rid of the removed branches is to burn them. Pick a post on your property that is far away from trees, shrubs, or buildings. Clear it out a bit more, if necessary, and place dry paper on the bottom, then start gradually adding smaller then larger branches until you get a small pile. Light up the pile and let it burn a bit, then start adding more branches, starting with smaller and dryer ones. Give this fire some time to burn and monitor it regularly to keep it under control. The safest solution is hiring a team of professionals.
Our team will help you to remove residual branches after every pruning & trimming session.
While smaller stumps might take up to a few hours to fully burn, large, old stumps with deep roots might take up to a few days. Do not try to speed up this process, because you might cause damage to the surrounding area. The safest and fastest option is hiring a team of professionals and letting them take care of this job for you.
Our team will burn down the stump and monitor the entire process so your property remains safe at all times.
