Tales from the Tree Cutting Crypt - Killer Bee's in Tucson

Killer Bee's in Tucson, Arizona.In Tucson, Arizona Tree Care is full of Adventure. In other parts of the country it is often mundane and full of scientific facts and routine low risk trimming. 

Here at Chris and Amanda's Tree Service we have come to expect anything. If you have been reading our "Tales from the Tree Cutting Crypt" blogs, it will not surprise you that we have ran into a bee or two.

Back in 2014 after a long summer of Tree Cutting we had a routine job that turned into anything but. A half dead California Pepper Tree Removal was supposed to be routine and as a side note the customer told us that they had seen some bee's around the tree but had done their due diligence and had a Bee Removal Company out and everything was fine.

Tree Service Tucson, Discounts, Coupons and more!

Thank you for stopping in to Chris and Amanda's Tree Service! We promise to make it worth your while. 

When is comes to Tree Service Tucson is behind the times in many ways. Our Tree Care Companies are generally under trained when compared with the rest of the country. Part of this is due to the small market of the Old Pueblo and the other part is due to 3 unique environmental factors that make it impossible to read a book about Tree Care in Tucson. Our rocky soil, drought conditions and freeze conditions make Tucson a unique place that requires a special set of rules for Tucson Tree's.

Tales from the Tree Cutting Crypt (Bomb in the Desert!)

Explosion in the Desert!Doing Tree Service in Tucson during the monsoon season is often an adventure. I have been out on 2 story roofs after a lightning strike broke a palm in half and have seen more strange weather events doing Tree Service than I ever expected. Nothing tops what I saw back in 2010.

Getting a call about a lightning struck tree is not uncommon, so when I heard that a tree had blown up I figured it was like all the others that I had seen. Before I arrived channel 13 had been out to do a news story, this should have tipped me off that something crazy had happened.

How to water a Tree in Tucson, Arizona.

For years we have been fixing tree's for the Tucson Community. Recently I had the opportunity to meet someone who was charged money to have a tree service inject 60 gallons of water in the soil for her tree. At this point I thought it may be helpful to put a large part of what we have done online for you. Tucson is a different place and during my study in Arboriculture I realized how different. Half of what I learned in a book was not applicable in Tucson. Our soil is so hard it changes the common teaching to incorrect.

Tales from the Tree Cutting Crypt! Alan Jackson?

Tales from the Tree Cutting Crypt! Alan Jackson?Years ago I had the joy of helping a family in need ofTree Removal in Tucson Arizona.Often as parents grow old I interact with the children helping to make sure that the property'sTree Trimmingneeds are taken care of. On this special occasion the daughter was helping get the place ready to sell after her mother was put in a retirement home. Our job detail was massive and I went over the night before to drop off an extra dumping trailer as the crane would arrive at 530 in the morning. After dropping off the trailer I was pulling out of the drive to see the neighbor come out of the house waiving a gun at me.

For years we have been helping Tucson, Arizona w/ tips, discounted prices and more. I wanted to lay a few things out to help our community understand Tucson Tree Services. Your understanding can help lead to saving money and getting a better service.... this is important. Years ago when we started our franchise in San Diego I learned about a phenomenon that an engineer had come up with. When working for him he explained that a group of friends had discussed the issue at length and stumbled on some new truths that you may find helpful.

Tales from the Tree Cutting Crypt! (Tucson Fire)

It is a chance to share some of our crazy experiences that make us the best Tree Company in Tucson, giving us the depth of knowledge to be prepared for anything, because we have seen everything.
Firefighting is not on my list of things to do when I go to a job but I have found that I am ready for it if the need arises. Years ago we had our Crane out to remove this palm tree on a summer morning in Tucson.

Thank you Ron Barber

Thank you Ron BarberFor so many years of working and living here in Tucson me and Amanda have met some of the most memorable people. Tucson is a community full of Loving people who all appreciate the Old Pueblo and all it has to offer. On behalf of all the people I know, we would like to thank Ron Barber for his service to our Community. After loosing Gabrielle Giffords Ron was a light of hope and his most admirable quality is that he lives here with us and is one of us. For years I have ran into him here or there and have sang his praises for being a grass roots candidate and heartfelt representative of Tucson. We all can appreciate someone who steps up in a time of need and sacrifices his time and future to represent us. THANK YOU RON BARBER. After working for one of his children (another local Tucsonian), I got a chance to work for Ron and have continued that relationship. Sadly Ron is not going to run again but I encourage all of us to thank him and Nancy for putting Tucson first and showing the rest of the world that we are a community united. So the next time you see him changing his tires or changing his oil, thank him and show support for on of the many treasures we have here in Tucson.

Lions Tailing done by uneducated Arborist in Tucson, Arizona.

Lions Tailing done by uneducated Tree Arborist in Tucson, Arizona.Tree Removal Service Tucson is the top Tree Trimming company in Tucson, Arizona.So what is lions tailing? It is an unrecognized pruning practice by the ISA and ANSI Pruning Standards. It is widely done in Tucson by uneducated Arborist and is as dangerous as topping to the health of the tree. 

Basically as shown in the picture, it is the removal of all lateral branches on a parent branch leaving only a cluster of leaves or shoots at the end of the parent branch. The end result is a dead branch. Photosynthesis and moisture drawn from soil to feed a branch is basically done by evaporation from the holes on a leaf and the process creates suction and a demand for water on the other end.

Has your tree been over trimmed, over pruned or dying in Tucson?

Thinking back (on a family members experience) I remember him over trimming a pine tree. I wasn't around for the error made but heard about the aftermath and how a year later the tree died and needed removal by a (competing Tree Service). This family member has over 15 years experience having his own tree Service Company, yet he never grew or advanced his craft to understand Tree anatomy, morphology or physiology. 
Often I will have a customer ask to really trim their tree aggressively. We try to convince them that it is putting their tree at risk for micro organism's (see our other blogs), but at times the customer is ready to remove the tree already and trimming it aggressively is the last resort before removal.
