Cutting Edge Tree Services & Arbor Master, Inc

Limb Sample

Tree care involves more than just tree trimming or removal. In fact, trees need a healthy environment to thrive, just like humans do. If you are concerned about the health of a particular tree on your property, or want to ensure the health of your valuable trees for years to come, we can help. Arbor Master, our tree health care partner, offers professional tree health consultations, diagnosis, and treatments. For plant problems common to our area we can often identify potential pests or abiotic factors by visiting your site. If we are unable to identify a problem from our experience and training, we can help you submit a limb sample to the Plant and Insect Diagnostic Clinic at Iowa State University. Their team of experts are able to identify disease, insect and environmental factors that may be hurting your tree. Trees in the North Iowa area are susceptible to a variety of diseases such as Dutch Elm's Disease, Oak Wilt, Bur Oak Blight, and insect infestation like Emerald Ash Borer. As certified commercial applicators, we can help your trees resist these threats through chemical treatment applications. We can also help with the preservation of trees stressed by environmental factors such as drought, chlorosis, and lightning, as well as urban stresses such as construction & soil compaction.

  • Are you concerned about an oncoming disease?
  • Have you spotted harmful moths, borers, ticks or worms?
  • Would you like an expert opinion on the health of your trees?
  • Or would you simply like to know how to maintain the health of your trees and extend their lifetime?

The Whole Job Was a Success

The whole job was a success to me, from the removing of the trees, the stumps, filling in with dirt, planting of the new tree, trimming the other tree to the cleanup. You did an amazing job, and in record time. You have a hard working crew.
