Keeping Safe After Winter Storm Stella

Heavy snow can easily weigh down branches, increasing their chances of breaking off.

Winter Storm Stella sped through our region with raging winds and heavy ice and snow. Sadly, many trees will lose limbs or fall in this storm. But, we're also concerned about the damage that you can't see.

The heavy weight of snow and ice combined with fierce winds is bound to put incredible stress on trees.The strain can cause:

  • - Breaks or cracks in large and small limbs.
  • - Weaken or compromise root systems.
  • - Strain trees with multi-stems (co-dominant leaders) like Birch, Ash and Maple.

Call us and have your Giroud ISA Certified Arborist do a comprehensive post-storm safety and health analysis of your trees. Identifying problems now can not only preserve a great tree, it can prevent future damage to your property.

Deadly Pitch Mass Borers Exterminated by Giroud

Pitch Mass Borers are lethal insects that infest Spruce, Fir, and Pine trees. These little caterpillar-like creatures burrow deep into the heartwood to feed on the tree's sap and resin. As these borers hijack the tree’s nutrient-rich sap, the tree will weaken and eventually die. New step by step video by Giroud Tree Climbers, Dan Rombold and Jack Morvin, shows how to remove these pests before they kill the tree and spread to other trees.

Puppy Confused after his Favorite Tree is Removed

After a tree removal, this confused puppy tries to find his favorite tree.

Dogs and trees go together like kibble and bits, but for one young pup, this sacred bond was broken, leading to one very confused puppy. After a morning of fun outside playing and spending time under his favorite tree, the playful dog was called indoors when Giroud arrived. Unfortunately, the puppy’s favorite tree was dead and had to be removed.

When Giroud crew was done with the tree removal, the excited puppy sprang past the threshold of the front door. What awaited him was a vacant spot where his leafy friend once stood. Confused, the puppy took a seat in the middle of the yard, and looked around to see where his tree could have gone. But alas, his search was to no avail. His friend had vanished, and was nowhere to be found. Fortunately, he had no problem finding a new tree on the property to call his new best friend.
