Pruning & Maintenance:
Proper maintenance extends the life and reduces the effects of storm damage on your trees.
Pruning & Maintenance Our Certified Arborists are trained to know exactly what
your trees need. Years of experience, and continued education in this field are
what make Independent Tree Service stand above the rest.
Trees periodically need to be trimmed not only to shape,
but also to remove dead, dying, or low branches near your roof or home to
prevent damage to your structure.
These services not only help to protect your property, but
also beautify your home at the same time.
Requires expertise and proper equipment to get the job done efficiently and safely.
Tree & Stump Removal
Some removals are very simple while others are extremely complex, requiring bucket truck crews and cranes. Independent Tree Service has all the necessary equipment and the certified arborists to make sure that your removal is done safely and properly.
Sometimes trees need to be removed for an obvious reason. The tree may be dead or dying, it may have fallen on a structure or roadway, or it may have been severely damaged during a storm.
Pre-Construction Tree Preservation:
Save the roots, save the tree. Trees need protection throughout and after the construction process. Let us save your trees.
Are you putting in a swimming pool? Are you finally building your dream home, or adding on to an existing home?
Any construction around your trees can cause serious damage and can be deadly to your trees. The damage may not show up right away, but in time it will, and the death of your favorite tree could be the result.
Your trees need protection before construction begins.
Our Certified Arborists know exactly what needs to be done. We can tell you where your tree root protection zone should begin and end, what limbs need to be removed or trimmed so that construction equipment does not damage limbs, or root systems, and if root pruning is necessary.
Independent Tree Service wants to make sure your trees not only survive construction, but continue to provide you with their beauty and shade for many years to come.
Storm Related Damage:
Your trees need our expertise, after the storm pruning may be necessary.

Dealing with the aftermath of a storm can be stressful. Independent can ease the process by providing the expertise to restore your property.
Cabling & Bracing:
Supporting a tree with cables or brace rods can add years to its life.
Cabling & Bracing
Sometimes, even the best of maintenance can give way to
Mother Nature. Over time, trees may begin to crack or split at major structural
points. This could result from the age of the tree, size, or effects of Florida
storms throughout the tree's life. When this happens, the tree owner is faced
with a difficult choice of removing a treasured tree in their yard.
Cables and brace rods allow us to secure the tree at
necessary points which minimizes structural deficiencies. This gives your tree
the structural support to decrease the potential for failure.
Root Pruning & Air Spading:
Cracks on your driveway, sidewalk, or home’s foundation. Selective root pruning may be an alternative to removal.
Air Spading & Root Pruning
Is your driveway, patio, or building foundation cracking or lifting due to a nearby tree? Trees are sometimes planted too close to a structure. Over time, the root system can begin to push through or under virtually anything in its path. This can lead to very costly repairs on your home, your driveway, or sidewalk.
Root pruning provides root control by severing the offending roots. This allows the deeper roots to continue their natural path, yet keeps your structures safe while minimizing trauma to the tree. Air spading (also known as "air knifing") is a soil excavating tool used when the tree is located too close to a structure to mechanically root prune. The spade uses a stream of compressed air to excavate the soil around the trouble area of the root system. The compressed air does not damage the root system or the surrounding utilities beneath the soil, yet creates an open channel that allows us to identify the root or roots that are causing the problem.
Trees in urban environments may need additional nutrition due to competing vegetation.
Unlike trees located in their natural forested setting, urban trees can need supplemental fertilization to replenish nutrients in the soil. The breakdown of leaf litter and fallen debris does not occur in the urban environment nutrient deficiencies often occur. The combined factors of soil compaction, the presence of turf grass, and poor soil aeration further contribute to the stresses of urban trees. Our Certified Arborists can prescribe a custom fertilization program to ensure optimal tree health.
