A frequent question Lincoln Landscaping gets is, what are the brown bags hanging from the trees in my yard? Evergreens such as eastern red cedar, other junipers, spruce or arborvitae are commonly the victim of the Bag Worm. Gone unnoticed, it has proved to be fatal.

The title “ARBORIST” refers to a person who has gained the technical competence to correctly and efficiently care for trees and other woody plants. Arborists are generally called upon to evaluate the condition of trees, make recommendations for their care, and then provide services needed such as pruning, fertilization, and insect and disease control. Above all, the arborist is a highly qualified professional who recognizes his or her responsibility to maintain the considerable value trees can add to life and property.

  1. TREE PRUNING – Arborists can determine what type of pruning is best for the individual tree to maintain its health and improve its appearance and safety. Also, if pruning requires a ladder and a chainsaw, hire a professional.
  2. TREE REMOVAL – Arborists can help determine whether or not a tree should be removed, though usually this is a last resort. Arborists have the skills and equipment to safely and efficiently remove trees. Tree removal is dangerous and should be done by a tree care professional.
  3. EMERGENCY TREE CARE – Storms can cause major damage to limbs or entire trees. These trees need to be removed or trimmed to lessen the long-term damage to the tree and surrounding property. This is dangerous work and an arborist should be hired to perform this job safely.
  4. PLANTING – Planting the right tree in the right place is important for the long term health of the tree. Arborists can recommend the appropriate tree for the desired location and assist in proper planting.

There are many other services that arborists provide when necessary such as fertilization, insect control, cabling, aeration, and lightning protection. Consulting with an arborist and establishing a plant health care plan will help determine when these services are necessary.
