An Arborist is a specialist in the care of individual trees.
You can compare an arborist to a “tree doctor”. Arborists are knowledgeable about the needs of trees and are trained and equipped to provide proper care. An arborist can help decide whether a tree should be removed.
Proper tree care is an investment that can lead to substantial returns. …….Read More
Marietta Tree Service will also help in identifying dangerous trees on your adjacent property and notify the adjacent property owner of any known tree hazards. This in itself cannot force anyone to remove a hazard tree on their property, but it can identify liability if the tree cause damages to your property at a later date.
Our expertise, backed by a Satisfaction Guaranteed service policy, has ensured a long term commitment to the success of Marietta Tree Service. Contact us at (770) 912-4033 to schedule your FREE estimate today.
Although many trees can be saved through proper pruning, trimming and maintenance, there are occasions when overcrowding, damage to adjacent structures, or because they are located in an area of new construction, tree removal is necessary. Our certified arborist will help you decide if and when your tree should be removed.
Tree removals are generally the most hazardous and considered the last avenue offered by Marietta Tree Services. Often, trees with major decay and weakened structural integrity that are close to buildings, utility lines, or landscape features with little access must be removed. Our highly skilled staff and certified arborist will use complex rigging techniques and if necessary, cranes for lowering wood safely.
During the tree removal, we chip up all the brush in our chipper, hauling away the chips or leaving them on site if the homeowner wants to use the c
hips as mulch. Then we cut up all the large pieces into 16″ rounds for firewood. Again, we either arrange to have the wood removed or leave it for the homeowner’s own use. In any event, the Marietta Tree removal service crew takes pride in leaving the site neat and clean.
RINGGOLD, Ga. — Since tornadoes embedded a large limb in Robert Harris’ roof last week, he has been bombarded with offers from contractors to help him out.
Some have been legitimate, he believes; others, not so much. The latter category includes one who offered to remove the limb and cut up the trees that fell in his yard on Sparks Street, all for a small fee and even if his insurance company doesn’t pay for the damage.
That one brought a chuckle from Harris on Wednesday. Read More
Jo-Evelyn Morris, it should be said, has plenty of dirt under her own fingernails.
The Morrises are founders of the North Marietta Community Garden in what was once part of an elementary school playground. About 50 neighbors, Cobb County Master Gardeners and other volunteers have been working to turn what had become an unused and overgrown piece of land into a thriving plot of fruits, vegetables, herbs, flowers, and, most importantly, community renewal.
Jim and Jo-Evelyn Morris live in Cherokee Heights, one of Marietta’s oldest and most well-kept neighborhoods. It’s in a National Historic District and was once home to actress Joanne Woodward.
But just a few blocks to the east is a different-looking place, a low-income neighborhood that has seen its share of hard times. “Allgood Road had a bad reputation for illegal behavior,” Jo-Evelyn Morris said.
What was once Allgood Elementary School, at the corner of Allgood Road and Pine Street, is now home to a Head Start program. Head Start closed off the back section of the playground because it was overrun with underbrush, diseased trees, poison ivy, English ivy, “anything you’d try to get out of your yard was there,” Jim Morris said.
That’s where members of the North Marietta Neighborhood Association and Cobb Master Gardeners have pushed down their shovels. The first garden beds were given to the kids in the Head Start program last fall and were harvested this spring. Read More
