“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

“It is always a pleasure working with SavATree as your company provides the best plant, tree and lawn health care that we have experienced at the Ives. Always professional, courteous and responsive to our needs, SavATree’s services have provided our employees and patrons with pleasant outdoor experiences in an insect free environment for several years.”Kathleen G.

“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. I admire the artistic skill that goes into the pruning and love the colorful blossoms, fruits and foliage that flourish as a result of their impeccable care.”Martha Stewart
"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.”

Recuperating from the Harsh Effects
Once the snow and ice have finally melted, the harsh effects of Old Man Winter has had on our trees is clearly visible as s the fact that your trees are in need of some TLC. While most plants do have natural healing systems that will help them overcome the stress caused by winter, an extremely harsh winter may warrant professional care.
Winter injury to trees and shrubs occurs in four different forms: windburn, cold injury, physical injury and salt damage.
When severe, cold and dry wind blows over the leaves or needles, it evaporates the moisture inside them and the tissue takes on a brownish appearance. Thorough watering in the late fall and the application of antidessicants and/or burlap wind barriers can help to prevent this type of injury.
Extremely cold temperatures cause the moisture inside of the leaf tissue to freeze which in turn causes cells to rupture. In addition, if the tree doesn’t have enough insulation delicate surface roots can freeze and become damaged. In turn, the roots are no longer able to transport necessary nutrients and moisture from the soil.
Severe wind, snow or ice commonly cause stressed or already weak branches to break.
Salt (sodium chloride) can damage in two ways. First, foliage can come in contact with salt through spray or when snow plows push salty snow or slush onto the needles or leaves of plants. Second, large concentrations of salt in the soil will cause a similar effect on the delicate hair roots below the surface. A similar phenomenon occurs to trees and shrubs planted adjacent to salt water.
If you suspect that your trees and/or shrubs are suffering from winter stress or injury, water them thoroughly (particularly if you suspect salt buildup in the soil) and prune away any dead or broken branches. If the shape of the plant has been compromised, you may consider a rejuvenation pruning of the entire plant. To really boost and rejuvenate your trees and shrubs, treat with a low nitrogen type fertilizer, such as ArborKelp®, SavATree’s exclusive formula designed to promote root growth and heighten stress tolerance.
