Tree & Shrub Trimming
Our arborists balance plant health, safety and artistry when pruning and shaping your plants from specimen shrubs or prized lace leaf maples to the largest shade and evergreen trees. We prune to emphasize a tree’s natural shape. If the tree has structural problems, we can cable it to increase its safety. In natural disaster situations we provide priority, emergency tree damage response to our clients. We also expertly prune fruit trees to shape and optimize fruit production. All of our work is performed in accordance with Industry Standard (ANSI A-300) tree pruning guidelines.
Tree Maintenance Programs
Like people, trees need the proper conditions to grow and flourish to reach their highest potential. Treecare can help protect your trees and plants from things that may endanger their health like disease and poor soil quality. We have certified arborists that know how to use and apply the treatments necessary to keep your plants and trees living healthy and strong for years to come.
Restore Lake Views
We are very experienced and work closely with Lake Minnetonka Conservation District (LMCD) and most cites surrounding the lake, while many have adopted regulations that if not followed can lead to hefty fines, Treecare can manage all of that for you.
Here are some guidelines:
A city permit is required to cut any live tree with a diameter of 6″ or greater that is located within 75′ of the shoreline. Inspection by city staff is required, to confirm the reasons for removal. Removal of dead trees doesn’t require a permit, but they must still be inspected prior to removal. Removal of live trees requires replacement on a tree-for-tree basis, at the same setback from the shore as the trees removed>Intensive vegetation clearing within 75′ of the shoreline, on steep slopes and in bluff areas is prohibited. Limited clearing is allowed to provide a view of the lake from the residence.
Tree Removal and Stump Grinding
If a tree must be removed because it is dead or hazardous, our expert arborists can safely and efficiently take it down with the most advanced technical rigging equipment and experience in the industry. Our expert and careful tree removal is performed to insure safety to people, structures and the landscape. For stump removal, we have portable stump grinding equipment.
Consulting and Diagnosis
Treecare has developed a reputation within the industry for our expertise in diagnosing tough tree and landscape problems, and for designing and implementing solutions to protect your valuable landscape investment. We perform many consulting and diagnostic services including hazard tree evaluations, insect and disease diagnosis and solutions, tree protection planning and supervision for construction sites, soil analysis and fertilization recommendations, tree surveys, and tree appraisals.
Check the condition of established trees once a year. If pruning and repair are necessary, call Treecare Inc.
Trees are pruned for several reasons: to develop a strong structure, to repair storm or disease damage, or to change their size or density. Keep in mind that any pruning cut directs the way a tree grows and that cannot be undone. Also remember that pruning is actually an open wound, if not done properly, it is an invitation to insects and diseases. A callus consisting of cambium tissue will eventually cover the injured site, if the branch is accurately cut at the collar, but this is a slow process. Trees are best pruned by an arborist. Arborist understand the way trees grow and how they should be pruned. We also have proper tools and equipment to climb and prune trees safely.
Targeted Disease and Treatment Program
The cure of your tree disease problems starts with a site visit and an accurate diagnosis by our expert arborists. Then we custom design a disease treatment program to fit the health needs of your trees (including fruit trees) and shrubs. This scientific approach eliminates unnecessary treatments by targeting only the pest-susceptible plants. By targeting only pest susceptible plants for treatment, we protect the health of your plants and the environment.
Emerald Ash Borer Remediation
Emerald ash borer (EAB), agrilus planipennis fairmaire, is an exotic beetle that was discovered in Hennepin County Minnesota near in the summer of 2010. The adult beetles nibble on ash foliage but cause little damage. The larvae (the immature stage) feed on the inner bark of ash trees, disrupting the tree’s ability to transport water and nutrients. Emerald ash borer probably arrived in the United States on solid wood packing material carried in cargo ships or airplanes originating in its native Asia. Emerald ash borer is also established in Northern Minnesota, was found in Edina Minnesota in 2010, Minnetonka MN in 2010, Wayzata MN and Minneapolis MN in 2010. Treecare Inc. has been treating Ash trees with Emerald Ash Borer Since its discovery in 2009. Emerald Ash Borer has the potential to kill millions of ash trees throughout Minnesota.

- Caused regulatory agencies in Minnesota to issue warnings and alert homeowners what to be careful of.
