Trees play a vital role in the health of our environment. They absorb the carbon dioxide that humans exhale and filter it, producing the oxygen that we need to survive on this planet. The carbon dioxide that trees clean from our air is toxic in high doses. Imagine if all the trees were gone: our health would inevitably suffer. The more trees we have, the more fresh air there is.

Trees are such a natural and vital part of life that it can be easy to overlook when they need attention. If the trees on your property are not maintained, they can cause other issues that affect your home. Fallen branches and leaves can dirty gutters and roofs, leading to potential hazards. Trees that aren't trimmed are particularly susceptible to storm damage and can cause health concerns for both people and the environment.

What can be so hard about cutting and pruning your own trees?

It’s actually extremely difficult, yet too many people attempt to do it themselves and leave their landscaping looking worse than just a few hours prior.

Now you’re left even more frustrated!

As the experts on tree removal in Chesapeake, VA and across the Hampton Roads area, we know a few things about uprooting and disposing of a large wooden burden. Despite doing our fair share of removing them, we do enjoy a tastefully green property and do our part to maintain the trees of the community.

Although trees are strong, tall, independent living things, they still need some loving care every once in awhile. Winter is approaching, and although trees are designed to withstand harsh, cold conditions, you can also take a few steps to prepare your trees for winter storms and snow. But remember, if you do need tree services in Virginia Beach, VA, and other local areas, or even 24/7 emergency tree removal, you can always rely on us here Tarzan Tree Services.

There are three common forms that a young tree comes in: Burlap wrapped, potted and seedling. Each of the three options requires a slightly different approach to planting.

At Tarzan Tree Service, we handle those green giants after they go in the ground with everything from stump removal in Norfolk to pruning in Chesapeake. Getting them in the ground, however, is up to the property owner.

At Tarzan Tree Service, we’re known for tree removal in Norfolk, and across Hampton Roads. We take pride in being able to safely and effectively get rid of trees, but we also like to see new ones planted.

Putting a small seedling into the ground, can be a rewarding experience, especially for a young family that can watch it grow to dozens of feet in height. A good tree can almost feel like a family member, or at least a part of the home itself. Some studies even show that a mature tree can add significantly to the property value of a home.

Now that we’ve officially made it into Summer, we can expect plenty of warm, sunny days. Summer, just like any season brings with it a few strong storms which can be quite rough on unprepared trees. As one of the premier tree service companies in Virginia Beach, VA, we feel it’s our duty to help best prepare your beautiful green giants for the elements that endanger them.

As one of the premier tree service companies in Chesapeake, VA, we know our way around a trunk and a few branches. While we do a lot of cutting, pruning, trimming, grinding and removal, we do our best to promote the natural majesty of greenery in our area. It’s a thing of beauty to see a tree last generations on a property, becoming a part of being at home.

Planting a tree can be a meaningful process to share, particularly with young ones as they’ll be able to witness its growth for decades. It’s also nice to share the labor of working on a property and nurturing a small plantlet into a fully grown giant. So where do you plant your tree?

Imagine you’re out enjoying yourself, maybe visiting with friends or just taking a quick drive to the coast. You return home, and as you step out of your car, you notice a few branches and leaves on the ground in front of your house just beneath one of your trees. You look up to discover that the tree at the front of your property has been cut down to an ugly and unsymmetrical growth, a strange, off-center ”V” shape. Immediately you begin to wonder:

How many trees are there on the block where you live? On the block where you work? Don’t know?

Trees aren’t something that most people count. When you perform tree removal in Virginia Beach or work in agriculture, you might pay attention, but for the average person, trees are something we rarely pay attention to. The fact of the matter is that we need plants, all greenery helps our environment. Those tall greens are more than just scenery; they do a lot of important things for us.

Well, it looks like the Sun is peaking through those branches later into these milder days. With the frost-bitten days of winter are now melting into the past, you may be wondering exactly what to do to prepare your greenery for the upcoming warmer months. For us at Tarzan Tree Service, warmer weather carries the winds of trimming and pruning season. If you want to keep your branches and trunks healthy, here are three ways to prepare for spring.

I had a 60+ ft Pine in my backyard that was inching its way toward my house so I called Tarzan Tree Service. He gave me a reasonable estimate with the time it would take them to bring it down. They showed up at my house early and did not stop working until everything was down and packed away. Tarzan Tree was professional, kept safety first, and cleaned everything up as if nothing had happened. I would recommend them for any tree service hands down. Great Service!!!
