“We appreciate the time and attention that your Arbor Patrol team takes to maintain the overall health and appearance of the trees, bushes and general grounds. As they say, you can only have one first impression and the impression the grounds make on both residents and visitors alike is always positive thanks to your caring maintenance. Just as the trees continue to grow and blossom under your care, we hope our relationship with SavATree does the same.”William Toedter
“After four different unsatisfactory visits with so-called arborists, I found SavaTree... I was most impressed with the professionalism of David [my arborists] and his colleagues. They were most knowledgeable, fair with their assessment about what needed to be done, yet very attuned with what my concerns. I highly recommend them without any hesitation. In a field where there is an abundance of folks looking to take advantage of consumers, SavaTree, David and crew strike me as incredibly honest and proud arborists who do a fantastic job.”Debbie Durkin

“For over 14 years, I have entrusted the care of my trees, plants and orchard to SavATree. Their highly qualified arborists have exacting standards and understand how to maintain the health and form of the various species of trees on my property.

"Efficient, high quality, professional competence — all at a competitive sum. At first [Alison] Pottage won me over by her solid knowledge as an arborist, then the crew did their job to her specifications on our 60 to 70 foot oaks within a remarkable period of time -- and left the grounds quite clean.”

Winter Lawn Care
To achieve a beautiful lawn, an effective – year-round – lawn care program is required. Yes, even in winter, you can take steps to help ensure you’ll have a healthy lawn come spring.
The geographic region in which you live and the winter weather conditions you experience will dictate specifically what lawn care steps should be taken. For example, lawns in some parts of the country do not go completely dormant, so here, remaining vigilant to avoid lawn diseases, such as lawn fungus, is an important component of winter lawn care.
Visit our month-by-month landscape care calendar to see what you should be doing for your lawn.
Winter Lawn Care Tip #1: Avoid Snow Pileup
Large, heavy piles of snow on your landscape can cause long-lasting damage to lawns and even permanent damage to other elements in your landscape. Remove heavy snow from branches, bushes and shrubs.
Large piles of snow on your lawn can lead to compaction and malign the soil’s ability to properly absorb air, water and nutrients. In addition, concentrated areas of snow pileup can create conditions that are ripe for lawn diseases once the snow starts to melt.
In order to avoid compaction and risk for lawn diseases, try to avoid piling large amounts of snow on your lawn when clearing driveways and walkways. Sometimes, just adjusting the angle of the snow blower’s chute as your clear your property can help to spread out the snow more evenly.
Winter Lawn Care Tip #2: Clear Debris
Winter winds, snow and ice all can wreak havoc on small branches. Remove branches and other debris as soon as possible. They can be potentially hazardous to anyone enjoying the winter lawn, especially if they get covered with a new blanket of snow. They also will break up into smaller pieces over time, which presents a hazard during mowing in the spring, and the small pieces of branches and twigs can become embedded in your lawn, leading to compaction and thatch buildup.
Winter Lawn Care Tip #3: Observe
The mid-winter thaw, warmer winters, or approaching spring all present ripe conditions for lawn diseases such as snow mold and other types of lawn fungus. To reduce your risk, break up large piles of snow. This will improve drainage conditions on your lawn.
Once the snow has cleared, professional lawn care providers can examine grass plants to check for snow mold and leaf diseases including lawn fungus. If you think you have an active disease on your property, our professional lawn care providers can come out and review your lawn with you to determine the best lawn care program to cure lawn diseases before spring comes.
