Tree Shaping in Santa Rosa, CA

Hagstrom & Sons Tree Service provides a wide range of tree pruning and tree maintenance services.

Pruning Fruit Trees

Annual maintenance pruning, especially on fruit trees, will open the canopy, and prevent crowding and branches from impacting each other. This will allow better air circulation and sunlight penetration, reduce disease problems and often result in a better yield of higher-quality fruit.

Additional Tree Pruning Information:

Annual maintenance pruning also reduces another concern for the homeowner: branch shedding. Some species, such as cottonwood (Populus deltoides), are notorious for branch drop, but most species are prone to it when competition for light is intense. Branches that do not produce enough carbohydrate from photosynthesis to maintain themselves will die and eventually fall from the tree. Where the break is clean, wound wood or callus is formed, preventing rot; where the break is a tear or rip from high winds or heavy rain, the wound seldom heals properly, shortening the tree's useful life. Annual maintenance pruning can identify those branches that may be prone to breakage, permitting proper removal.

Most deciduous trees have spherical or decurrent crowns with many lateral branches that may compete for apical dominance. If two branches are competing for dominance (co-dominance), the result often is a weak union between the two. That means the tree likely will tear apart in the future. Remove the weaker of the two branches when it still is small and can be removed with a hand pruner or lopper to assure a single dominant stem.

Professional Deep Root Tree Feedings - What is deep root feeding?

Deep root feeding, also known as deep root fertilization, is a treatment that delivers nutrients directly to the root zone of a tree or shrub. If a tree is not properly nourished, the tree cannot flourish. In the worst case scenario, tree removal may be necessary. Give your shrubs and trees the nourishment they need to make them more beautiful every season.

Why Do Trees and Shrubs Need Deep Root Feedings?

  • Deep root feeding is especially important in the city where there is no new source for nutrients.
  • Deep root feedings are important in suburbs where leaves are removed that would normally compost and feed the roots of the tree.
  • Deep root feeding in the spring will encourage tip and leaf growth and in the fall will help develop roots.
  • Proper feeding of your ornamental trees and shrubs offers many benefits, including improved flowering, increased resistance to disease, and increased ability to ward off insect attacks.
  • Tree illnesses can be prevented. In most cases, trees do not show signs of illness that the non-professional can recognize until it is too late.
  • Deep root tree and shrub feeding promotes a healthy and beautiful landscape for year-round enjoyment and reduced maintenance.

Care For Your Trees and Shrubs

Your trees and shrubs are a growing investment that should increase in beauty and value with each passing season. Deep root feedings, scheduled on a regular basis, help to improve and protect your growing landscape investment. Contact Hagstrom and Sons Tree Service and make sure that your trees thrive.

Tree Stump Grinding

Hagstrom & Sons Tree Service has two different sizes of stump grinders that allow us to remove any size tree stump that you may have on your property.

A stump grinder or stump cutter is a power tool or equipment attachment that removes tree stumps by means of a rotating cutting disk that chips away the wood.

Stump grinders can be the size of a lawn mower or as large as truck. Most accomplish their task by means of a high-speed disk with teeth that grind the stump and roots into small chips. A typical stump grinder incorporates a cutter wheel with fixed carbide teeth. The cutter wheel movements are controlled by hydraulic cylinders to push the cutter wheel teeth laterally through the stump and to raise and lower the cutter wheel.

Some Reasons To Remove Tree Stumps:

  • Stumps aren't pretty.
  • Stumps are hazardous.
  • Stumps cause new tree growth.
  • Stumps are a pain to maneuver around.
  • Stumps attract insects.
  • Stumps take up precious yard space
