Olson Tree Care
What is Tree Surgery?
Often Tree Services advertise "Tree Surgeon" but is their Arborist a surgeon? Does Arborist implementation of Tree Trimming Techniques make one a surgeon?
Olson Tree Care admits that if an Arborist is trained and professional in the removal of those tree parts then the answer may be yes. But there is a real Tree Surgery that takes place, on rare occasions, by ISA Certified Arborists.
Olson Tree Care in Des Moines, Iowa has performed Tree Surgery on a number of occasions, one referenced below.
If your tree has oozing sap it may be Gummosis and Tree Surgery may be required.
With a few scrapes of the chisel the Arborist at Olson Tree Care removes the sap and squishy bark, revealing a hole of decay in the tree. After removing the diseased bark and sapwood the Arborist then sprays the tree with a bactericide and flashes the tree with a torch drying the area. This leaves the tree in the best condition to complete CODIT process on the open wound.
This would be a proper example of Tree Surgery.
