Well maintained trees provide aesthetic beauty which translates to increased property value. When properly placed and cared for, trees also provide services such as decreased energy costs, shade, windbreaks, erosion control and water retention. Trees which receive routine maintenance will also live longer, therefore prolonging the services they provide. Conversely non-maintained trees can be unsightly and potentially hazardous to people and property, causing a liability concern. While trees provide a great amount of benefits to properties and communities, maintaining healthy and safe tree populations can be a challenge for both homeowners and municipalities.
Trees are living systems that both affect and are affected by a wide range of environmental factors such as soil, air, water, topography, climate, and wildlife. Understanding the comprehensive nature of tree biology is prerequisite to providing effective, productive and aesthetic tree maintenance work. At EC Consulting we have the experience and expertise needed to properly manage and maintain individual trees and tree communities.
