BigTreeSupply.com: Spring Checklist for Taking Care of Your Trees

By Nancy Penrose

Winter is almost over and spring is in sight! This means it’s time to start thinking about tree care for your trees and ensure they’re in tip-top shape for spring and summer. Below, you’ll find a mini-checklist of steps you can take to see if your tree is healthy and what to do if certain signs appear.

1. Inspect your trees and shrubs
Rainfall and melting snow can add more water than normal and you may encounter standing water. Pay attention to your trees; if anything looks unusual, make sure to contact a professional tree arborist to determine the care that might be needed.

2. Prune any dead branches
Proper pruning is a must in order to protect your big trees from any branches that got damaged from the winter weather. Not to mention, pruning will help protect your home, cars, family and passersby from damaged branches that could fall.

3. Think about if you want to plant new trees
Now is the time to start thinking about planting new trees. If you’ve decided to plant a new tree, spring is a great time to do so! We highly recommend hiring a tree installation professional to help you on planting your new trees because there are several factors that come into play, such as where to safely plant it, planting it at the proper depth, etc.

Spring is such a joyful time for many of us! Let’s make sure your trees are healthy and safe. We are professionally trained to inspect trees, give them their proper treatment and plant new trees. Just contact us at (866) 313-2333 and we can go over your specific needs.

FineCraftContractors.com: Beware of the Lowest Bidder When Selecting a Contractor

By Niko Papaheraklis

The temptation of accepting a low bid from a contract is very high, but is it too good to be true? What’s the catch? Below, we list out several reasons why you should beware of the lowest bidder when selecting a contractor.

It’s not an honest bid

Professional contractors who are honest and have integrity will give you a thorough estimate depending on your needs and wants the first time. They’ll include details on all the materials and what work is needed. It’s a bad indicator if you receive a bid without any details or explanation; the skill and professionalism of that contractor is questionable.

2. If it seems too good to be true, then it is

If you receive a bid and you think, “Wow! How is their bid so low?” Or “This seems too good to be true…” then the answer is yes, it is too good to be true. If you’re still interested in their work, call several references of theirs and ask what job ended up costing versus what the proposal was.

3. They’re hiding something

In many cases, a low bidding contractor isn’t licensed, and they’re hoping that their low price will make up for their shortcomings. You should avoid this at all costs because an unlicensed contractor has to cheat his way and he’ll most likely cheat you too.

4. You’ll receive low quality

This one may be obvious, but a bid that is way lower than the others will inevitably result in a low quality job. In the end, the amount of money you saved won’t be worth it and you’ll probably have to spend more to fix or save your project.

At Finecraft Contractors, if you can imagine it, we can build it. If you have a home renovation idea or want to remodel sections of your home, call us at 301-330-9191 and we’ll give you a thoroughly thought out estimate.

BigTreeSupply.com: Why You Shouldn’t Neglect Damaged Trees

By Nancy Penrose

In today’s fast paced world, it’s easy to get busy with work and forget to pay attention to your trees. You may overlook damage or forget to properly maintain your trees. While it is totally understandable when life can be busy, we want to stress how important it is to assess damaged trees, especially big trees, and to maintain your trees properly.

What happens if I neglect a damaged tree?

First, it can be very harmful to your neighbors, children, family, pets and people passing by. When a tree is diseased, damaged or unstable, the branches are at risk of falling and can injure those nearby. The scary part is that it can happen suddenly and unpredictably.

Secondly, it can cause property damage if large branches, or even an entire tree, falls onto your car or your home, or worse, that of your neighbor’s.

Thirdly, damaged trees can also cause problems for nearby trees on your property. If a large branch falls on another tree, or if the tree disease from one tree spreads to another, things can get bad quickly.

At Big Trees, we are properly trained tree specialists and can inspect all types of trees and help find the correct solution for diseased or damaged trees. If your tree looks questionable in any way, let us come out and inspect it. Call us at (360) 563-2700 today.

Big Trees Inc. Helps a Local University on Renovation Project

SNOHOMISH, WA: Big Trees Inc., (https://bigtreesupply.com/), a tree sales and transplant company, was recently contacted by a local university to help save existing trees from demolition during a large campus remodel.

Big Trees helped relocate the trees to a storage area and save them for future landscape use after the construction is complete. The university is well known for its specimen trees and plants and the reuse of these trees will be appreciated in the coming decades of new students, faculty and public garden tours.

There were eight large trees that needed to be dug, balled and burlapped, and maneuvered to a storage area located several hundred yards to the north of their current locations. Most of these trees weighed one to four tons or more, and included varieties such as Japanese Maples, Fernleaf Hinokis and a spreading Mugo Pine. In addition to the large trees, there were 17 heavy rocks that had been weathered and aged in the garden. These rocks, some weighing upwards of 8,000 pounds, were carefully unearthed from their positions and moved to storage as well.

“It’s very rewarding to everyone involved when we get to see trees with a long, cared for history be saved and valued for a new project,” says Todd Holmes, Big Trees’ Operation Manager. “These trees have a lot of character to offer a new building, to say nothing of the scaling and sizing complementation that some mature landscape trees and heavy-rock can bring to a view scape. It’s very exciting to come see the project once everything is wrapped up and recognize the value that the substantial trees and landscaping provides.”

Nancy Penrose is the owner of Big Trees Inc., located in Snohomish, WA in the Seattle area. The company is one of the largest tree nurseries in the Seattle area with over 120,000 trees available in over 300 varieties. They not only deliver young trees, but also mature trees in a wide range of sizes. Some types of trees available include spring flowering, deciduous, evergreen, and privacy trees. The company also does tree transplanting including large trees. Their blog can be seen at https://bigtreesupply.com/blog/ or http://arboristblog.com/. They can be reached at 360-563-2700.
