Our first concern is preventative management through comprehensive tree and plant health care. However, in certain cases, a tree cannot defend itself against the onslaught of all the invasive pests, fungal diseases and climactic elements in a given season. When problems in your landscape occur, our arborists investigate each tree’s health, and recommend the most effective and environmentally sound remedies possible. Employing a state–of–the–art process of diagnosis and treatment, Timber Tender responds to the problems in your landscape with the most environmentally sensitive approach.

The Agile craft of professional tree climbing is a time honored Timber Tender tradition. This organic relationship allows us to investigate, realize and treat tree health on a firsthand basis without reliance on mechanized assistance. We manually remedy trees specifically and cost effectively while avoiding the destructive soil and root compaction caused by heavy lift equipment. Utilizing cutting edge technique and strategic planning, our skilled team of arborists are free to maneuver safely among the complex tree canopy—at one with nearly any environment.

Mature trees are an enormous asset in the Upper Valley’s ripe greenspace—contributing to individual property value, supporting the area’s vast ecosystem and enhancing its natural beauty. Our team of arborists can offer solutions including cabling, bracing and pruning to reduce stress, enhance growth and potentially increase the lifespan of full–grown trees. Timber Tender is committed to achieving a balance between conservation and safe use of mature trees for the long–term appreciation of generations to come.

The story is in the soil with most trees. 90% of tree problems occur in the area of the root zone where the tree obtains water, oxygen, and minerals from the soil. Problems with your trees may be caused by root injury due to soil compaction, dramatic change in soil [or mulch] depth, improper watering or fertilization and malnutrition, among many other biological elements. Where trees grow in forests and groups, their falling leaves create a “leaf litter” which decomposes to provide a natural fertilizer in which trees thrive and grow healthy.

This abundance of rich nutrients is rarely present in the suburban environment where manicured lawns, flower beds and mulching prevail. When one or more of these nutrients are deficient in the soil, the tree will not reach its full landscape potential, and will be more prone to disease, pest infestation and a shorter life–span than that of a similar, well–fertilized tree. Timber Tender cares for trees with a systemic approach, scientifically evaluating soil quality and fertilizing by distinct prescription on a case–by–case basis.
