Do your crews speak English?
Arbormedics only employs United States citizens. All of our workers speak English and are full-time employees who are involved daily in the care and preservation of trees and shrubs. We work as a team to provide you with the best tree and shrub care available. It is common for our crews to interact with clients throughout our projects to ask questions, receive feedback, and to make sure we are treating your property and landscape with the care it deserves!
When you prune our tree and chip the branches, where will you take the wood chips?
During the course of tree care operations, we generate a large number of wood chips. The majority of these chips are donated to non-profit organizations and local schools to be used as mulch. Wood chip mulch decomposes to provide humus material that benefits the soil and nearby trees. When we have to remove a branch that is too large to chip, we turn the logs into firewood or haul it to a "vegetative landfill" where it is ground into mulch using a large tub-grinder.
