Do your arborists work on residential and commercial properties?

How can I prevent ice damage to my trees?

Wisconsin trees can face a lot of damage from ice. During the winter months, snow accumulates and melts on tree branches. The melted water then freezes and weighs down the tree. A lot of ice buildup can break weaker branches. Enough weight can topple trees onto your home or nearby powerlines.

Annual tree pruning and maintenance removes damaged or diseased branches which might break under ice. Call Russ’s Tree Service to schedule pruning from our certified arborists.

When is the best time to winterize my trees?

If you want to protect your trees from being broken by ice, arrange for tree pruning and trimming before winter sets in. Exactly when depends on several factors. Tree species grow at different rates. The best time to cut off branches is when the tree is not actively growing. Our certified arborists know when each type of tree will benefit the most from pruning. Contact our team to learn when to get your trees ready for winter.

Why do tree stumps need to be removed?

Tree stumps and root balls can cause several problems for your yard. For starters, it’s a constant reminder of where a beautiful tree once way. Next, it creates an obstacle for future landscaping like mowing the lawn. Rotting stumps attract pests like termites. And if the root system keeps growing it can reach sidewalks or your home’s foundation.

Our arborists remove and grind down stumps so you can avoid these problems.

What are signs of disease in trees?

  • Fewer branches and leaves
  • Visible roots
  • Missing bark
  • Leaf blight, spotting, and blotching
  • Mushrooms growing around the roots

The exact symptoms will change based on the disease your tree has. Ask our experts for help identifying diseases in your trees.

What are signs of insect infestation in trees?

These are just a few of the most common signs of tree infestation. Contact our certified arborists to check if your tree had an insect problem.

  • Tunnels appearing in the bark
  • Entry and exit holes in the bark
  • Visible egg sacks, often located under branches
  • Carved out areas in the wood that look like trails
  • Thinning leaves or yellow leaf coloring

What are common tree diseases in Wisconsin?

Common tree diseases in Wisconsin are: Oak Wilt, Dothistroma Needle Blight, Beech Bark Disease, and Fungus and mold.

Russ’s Tree Service provides professional tree treatment. Our certified arborists do everything possible to save diseased trees. If a tree is too far along or already dead, we offer dead tree removal and stump grinding. Just cutting down the tree isn’t enough, as the remaining roots can spread the infection to the healthy trees on your property.

What are the most common insects causing infestations in Wisconsin trees?

Insects known for causing tree infestations include: Emerald Ash Borer, Gypsy Moths, Silver Maple Beetles and Asian Longhorned Beetles.

An infestation caused by any of these insects can lead to the death of your trees. Schedule a tree care and treatment appointment with Russ’s Tree Service to find the best option for ending your insect issue.
