Caring for Our Urban Forest
Why Landscape Design Matters
"Design is the first signal of human intention." ~ William McDonough
From the first notion, to a scribbly sketch and the final measured detail, design embodies our intentions, our need and wants, and the social values that we share. When it comes to landscapes (everything outside the door), design determines our relationship to the natural world - do we live within it or apart from it? With a considered and thoughtful approach, design is a powerful tool - one that supports a rich human experience (beauty, enjoyment, inspiration), while supporting ecological health and abundance.
ISA is "a professional green industry organization whose mission is to promote the professional practice of arboriculture and create a worldwide awareness of the benefits of trees. ISA certifies arborists, providing the public with a source for recognizing skilled tree care professionals."
Christopher is an ISA Certified Arborist with over 10 years of experience of climbing, pruning, and restoring trees. He is also Tree Risk Assessment Qualified (TRAQ) through ISA, He implements the latest industry standards to provide the best care for your trees.
We specialize in tree climbing! With tree specific equipment that has been adapted from rock climbing, Christopher climbs every tree he works on. Climbing allows him to safely get to difficult to reach areas within a tree to reduce the overall weight and leverage of the canopy, without compromising the tree's shape and health.
Certain structural defects within a tree may require cabling to ensure that the integrity of the canopy is not compromised. Dynamic cabling systems provide the support needed, while allowing the limbs of a tree to move naturally.
Tree Risk and Health
As ISA Certified Arborists who is TRAQ (Tree Risk Assessment Qualified), we provide a systematic process for assessing tree health and risk and providing information to tree owners for making informed decisions that will promote the safety of people and property and enhance tree benefits, health, and longevity.
With our knowledge of trees and landscape planning, we can greatly assist with the selection and planting of trees. Trees come in all shapes and sizes, and not every tree is appropriate for a site's conditions or context. Let us help select the best tree for you!
