Planting new trees is one of the more enjoyable things we get to do here at Ross Tree Company. We use local nurseries to seek out the best trees we can find, paying close attention to branch structure. Successful planting requires special care in the transport, planting, and staking of your trees. Careful handling of the root ball and placement at the proper depth is imperative to achieving that happy result of a healthy and thriving tree that will add beauty and value to your landscape for years to come.

Stump removal, while it often goes hand in hand with tree removal, is a separate operation with its very own property and safety considerations. Only an experienced operator can negotiate these challenges successfully and with a minimally negative impact upon your yard.
We at Ross Tree Company take our motto to heart. Integrity in Action means that we stand behind our work. If, despite our best efforts, damage to your property does occur, we will do whatever is necessary to make it right.
Stump removal is a common area where fair price comparison is difficult. Unless specifically stated otherwise, when we remove a stump we will grind it out 6” to 8” below grade, including surface roots, haul those stump grindings away, and backfill the area with topsoil. This will assure that you won’t have an area that will not support grass or will subside over time and leave you with a depression in your yard.
Cabling trees is a less common, but still important practice that can sometimes be used to address a problem where a structural weakness has been identified. Cables may be used just for additional peace of mind where large tree limbs hang over valuable property. Cables are effective only if properly installed using the necessary hardware. We use high-strength steel cables, forged eye bolts, thimbles, and specially designed connections. Usually they are placed high in the tree for the greatest advantage and are hardly even noticeable from the ground.
Bracing is an even less common, but sometimes warranted practice. A steel rod is used to add strength to a weak connection, usually where a tree is in danger of splitting in two. It is just as important to understand the limitations of cabling and bracing as it is to know of their advantages.
Call Ross Tree Company now to have an experienced arborist assess whether cabling or bracing may be the answer to your tree care problem.
The changeable weather patterns here on the Eastern Plains of Colorado pose particularly challenging conditions for trees. This sometimes requires slight modification of commonly accepted pruning practices to help protect trees against possible storm damage.
Our experienced trimmers take personal pride the performance of their work, assuring you that your trees will be the pride of your neighborhood.
