Winter Time Tree Cutting is Necessary to Maintain a Healthy Property


If you are in need of tree cutting services during the winter, PCS is available for emergency tree removal 24/7. We understand that snowstorms have a large impact on landscape and tree health, which is why we will be there as soon as possible to help in case there are fallen branches or trees.

It is a great idea to prepare your trees for winter. Getting your trees inspected before the harsh Connecticut winter storms will help your trees to last a healthy life and bare the cold. Even if you take preventative measures with your trees such as: watering, pruning, mulch, etc – there is still a chance that your tree can become weak from the bitter cold. This can make your tree more vulnerable to cracking and disease.

When your trees are healthy, it is one less thing to worry about. You will ensure the safety of your home and family by having your trees inspected or removed if necessary. There are more obvious signs that a tree should be removed and more subtle ones that may not be seen with the eye. A tree can be damaged or diseased on the inside that would be difficult to notice unless you were a professional tree inspector. 
It is necessary to seek professional tree help especially during the winter. When snow starts falling on trees and branches, it weakens them. If your trees are already weak, this makes your trees more likely to fall and cause damage. Contact Precision Cutting Services for a free tree removal estimate, and manage at risk trees before a snowstorm!

Why it is Important to Prepare Your Trees For the Fall in Seymour

Hydrating Your Trees – Making sure that your trees have enough water to endure the cold Fall months in Seymour is important. A good way to get water directly to the roots is to use subsurface watering which uses an injection probe to deliver water 12 inches into the soil. This is a new way to give trees a relief from drought weather for the perfect commercial landscaping.

Fertilization –  Properly fertilizing your trees will help them get through the fall and winter months. This will help replace the nutrients that your tree needs in order to prevent damage, insect infestation and disease.

Knowing When to Plant – The best time to plant new trees is in the Fall. New trees will have a better chance of surviving the colder months than summer months with excessive heat and drought. In the Fall, trees can spread their roots and have a much better chance surviving the weather.

Preparing for the Cold – Since snow and cold temperatures can also damage trees aside from the hot summers, be sure to protect your trees from extreme weather conditions. It is important before the winter to cable, brace and prune your trees. You can do the pruning before Winter starts, since pruning in the Fall will be easier with trees having no leaves.

So if you are looking to take care of your trees before the extreme cold weather hits, you should apply these tips to all of your trees in both Seymour and Monroe. Extra care goes a long way, and you trees will be healthier than ever by the Spring. However, if your trees for some reason do not last through the Fall or Winter months, contact Precision Cutting Services today for tree removal.

Trees in New Haven County

Based on research done for a tree study in New Haven by Yale University, New Haven’s trees – like many other cities – were dying. The uncontrolable Dutch Elm Disease had spread to Dutch Elm Trees in the 1950’s and 1960’s in New Haven, and nearly wiped out their population. Still today, Dutch Elm Disease is affecting the Dutch Elm Trees that are left over. The once beautiful tree that gave New Haven so much history, was quickly being taken away from us.

As a response to the rapid tree loss, Mayor John DeStefano back in 2009 announced the “Tree Haven 10k”. This was a city-wide goal for New Haven to plant 10,000 trees in five years. New Haven, along with major cities such as Los Angeles and New York City, took up a strategy to promote tree growth. New Haven concentrated on areas that needed the most canopy cover by trees, for the best results for the environment. In fact, trees are great for the environment, consuming large amounts of air pollution. Urban cities are in much greater need of tree coverage than rural areas do to dense population. According to Nature World News, more than 80 percent of Americans live in urban areas, proving how important urban forests are to America. Trees are able to absorb about 48 pounds of Carbon Dioxide a year at its mature tenth year (or its most productive year).

Dutch Elm Trees, after they died, have been replaced with with Norway Maple trees. Although one in four trees in New Haven is a Norway Maple Tree, they have a short life span and are dying out. Major threats are spreading to the trees each year throughout the cities, and tree species seem to be suffering for it. The effort by New Haven to plant additional trees has proven to be a success as trees are once again lining streets of the city. Improvements need to be made with additional tree plantings, but progress has been made.

While there has been an increase in trees in New Haven county, the threat of unpredictable New England weather remains. From heavy winds and snow, to hail and occasional hurricanes, New England weather greatly varies. This ends up putting further stress on the trees, which can potentially destroy the them. In a heavy storm, trees can threaten urban areas if limbs or the whole tree falls. That is where Precision Cutting Services comes in hand with CT Tree Removal, to tackle emergency tree removal services.

Tree Diseases in the Summer

Many people worry about damage to trees in the winter, but the Summer is when trees are the most damaged from storms and disease. The structural damage to trees in the summer from different fungus, insects and storms are even more concerning than the ice damage caused in the winter. It’s always good to have your trees checked over to make sure they are in proper condition and health.


Many types of trees during the summer are unfortunately affected by the different weather elements during the summer. Birch trees are the most common trees to have stress from the different conditions. During the summer, beetles called Bronze Birch Borer feed below the bark of the tree – where it’s rich in nutrients. They usually attack trees under stress, but most aged birch trees are all under some level of stress. These beetles can be eliminated with insecticides to ensure your tree remains in proper health.


July is a common month to start seeing crab apple trees become diseased and lose their leaves prematurely. This is due to Apple Scrab, a fungus that attacks the tree. By the time people notice the trees losing leaves, it may be too late to control the condition. This will not kill the tree, but will damage and reduce the value of the tree. Trees become infected often in early spring, so be sure to take preventative measures before it’s too late.


elmAnother disease that will affect trees during the summer is the Dutch Elm Disease which is a fungus that will attack the tree which cause brown streaking in the wood and leaves to turn from yellow to brown.Fungicides injected into the trunk of the tree will prevent the tree from becoming diseased.
It is important to take preventative measures this summer in order to keep your trees in top shape. If your trees become diseased, proper removal may be necessary with a licensed tree removal service in Hamden CT. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at (203)466-2400.

When a Tree Should be Removed

Do not hesitate when you see something strange going on with your tree. There are many reasons trees may need to be removed from your property from old age to disease. Trees that are too old become a risk to you and your family’s safety. In this case, the best option is to have your tree removed rather than endanger your household.


Some of the signs to look for to call in someone to evaluate your trees are:


Examining for any leaning of the trees
Some trees lean naturally, but if this happens to be new with your tree, than your tree can be very unstable. Any tree that is leaning is usually means that it is in danger of dying or is already dead. Contacting us or Tree removal in Hamden CT may be your best option!

Inspect the Tree Trunk
Any cracks or cavities in the trunk can destabilize the structure. Trees should be examined to see if they are structurally sound; this does not necessarily mean they have to be removed. A cavity may be small enough for the tree to handle, or it may be too large for the tree to hold up on its own.

Inspect the Roots
You can get a lot of information on the health of your tree by inspecting its roots. When the roots are damaged or decaying, the tree will not have a good structure to stand on. This means that your tree may have lost its structural support, and can potentially fall. If the base of the tree has space between the tree and the ground, that is also a sign that your tree’s structure is compromised. This can cause tree lean and cause tree damage.

Have a Canopy Inspection Done
A canopy inspection needs to be done by a professional. This will find the hidden and most dangerous branches on the tree. There may be little to no signs that a branch is broken or dead until after the break. Any branch that has bark missing or dead leaves usually means the branch is not being held up by the tree. These are the branches that need to be removed immediately for safety reasons.
