Welcome to Caldwell Tree Care. Caldwell Tree Care has been in business since 1993 and we are Roswell’s premier tree care company.
We have several International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) certified arborists on staff who are ready to serve your tree care needs. Whether you need to make room for a children’s play area, expand your garden area, or remove trees due to storm damage or disease, we have the equipment to reach even the most difficult spot and remove the tree without leaving a mess.
In addition to our tree care division, we have a Plant Health Care staff that works in concert with you to develop a plan for all plants in your landscape. We will help you identify key trees and shrubs that will become a dominant part of your PHC program. Tree and shrubs represent major, long-term investments in your landscape and warrant special care from an arborist who understands the unique needs of trees and shrubs.
From tree removal to storm recovery to health care maintenance and prevention, we are a leading, responsive organization known throughout the Metro-Atlanta market. We can also assist with permit processes and insurance concerns, and collaborate with other service providers.
With all of the recent rains, I sure you have seen trees or seen news stories about trees falling onto houses. Are wondering if your trees are safe? Healthy trees are safe trees and safe trees have a much better chance of withstanding thunderstorms and heavy rains. The best way to make sure your trees are healthy is to hire a certified arborist to evaluate your trees. A certified arborist can tell you if you have safe trees around your house and yard. Caldwell Tree Care has several International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) certified arborists to evaluate your trees for health and safety. Give us a call at 770-992-1973 or click on “Request An Estimate” and fill out the form and we will contact you.
This year has been extremely busy at Caldwell Tree Care. It has also been the start of Kevin Caldwell’s tenure as Chairman of the TCIA. If you’ve read this blog, you may have noticed we work hard to promote the welfare of our industry based upon effective professional standards and exemplary conduct. Tree and Plant Health Care is far beyond cutting down trees or trimming bushes.
TCIA Expo is our annual gathering for both education and industry development. Please check out my welcome letter on Page 2. I encourage all those that work in our industry to both attend this event and become a TCIA member if you haven’t yet joined. It’s a great industry with fantastic professionals. Together, we will continue to improve tree and plant health care in this nation.
Caldwell Tree Care is a leader in Atlanta, hiring certified Arborists and continuously training crews. We also buy and maintain the best equipment available. Today we’d like to share the Hobbs Arborist Lowering Device – an important tool in our kit. If you need to remove a large, old tree from a property with least risk of collateral damage, then this device operated by people that know how to properly deploy it, is critical. Take a look, and give us a call if you need help.
For the past eight years, we’ve been caring for a Hickory tree in Buckhead. Many years previous, a lost limb led to decay deep inside of the tree. This tree was beautiful and contributed to the curb appeal of the home on a high ridge line. The home owners did not want to remove it, and we’ve worked to reduce risk from high winds.
Over the years we’ve applied a number of measures to keep this tree as healthy and safe as possible, including “thinning of the sail” – effectively reducing its tree canopy and the associated weight so that high winds didn’t cause a structural loss.
Den 6 Learns About Hickory Tree
During a cub scout exercise a few years ago, this tree was a stop on our tour to talk about maintaining trees and Urban Forestry.
Unfortunately time has marched on, and internal decay took control. This past fall, the owner noticed a few small cankers (they look like clams) growing about four feet off the ground. And, they kept growing and spreading.
By the new year we knew this was a serious problem we could not alleviate. We contacted the City of Atlanta arborist, obtaining a permit to remove the dying tree. The lesson to share today is that you can take efforts to extend the life of old trees but you need to keep an eye out for the danger signs, like these cankers. Take a look at the video for more details on what we found.
