Old Town Tree & Landscaping

We rarely have openings like this. We had a pretty large job fall through and only approved part of the work. They want to break it up and budget it for several years. This project was planned months in advance. This is usually the slowest time of year for
tree services. Old Town Tree has not had any down time in about 5 years. This is how we secure and keep our amazing employees. Year round steady work. People want security and knowing they can count on the paycheck. We have committed to our employees to keep paying them through any down time. This has been true every year. This year we need to fill a gap and are willing to offer discounts. We are currently offering a 10% discount to anyone that schedules work from February 2nd through February 15th. It is always a good time to call and get on our list. Call and get on the books now for any tree services we offer to receive this discount. We offer tree removal, tree trimming, stump grinding, land clearing and Plant Health Care. Please call today to have one of our Certified Arborist give you a free estimate.

Old Town Tree and Landscaping has always taken on land clearing jobs. Recently we have been getting more calls about it. There are a few companies that specialize in clearing lots. Some reasons to clear land are to reclaim the area for new purposes. Another reason is for new construction; house build and septic. It could just be to maintain and control certain areas overgrown and hosting invasive species; like Russian Autumn Olive, Bradford Pear and Ailanthus. The problem is the larger companies want to clear 25+ acres. Builders will offer it on new construction but do not always do the best job. They are not licensed and professional tree experts just like we are not licensed and professional builders. This is usually the cheapest option but if not done properly can cause more issues down the line. If debris is not properly disposed of they can be a nightmare to deal with. A lot of times they get pushed to a corner or buried. Once they are in a corner they get blocked in by construction. If they are buried they can form a sinkhole. Debris can be burnt but that is not always an option depending on county and HOA regulations. A lot of other unforeseen damage can occur, especially if some trees are trying to be preserved. Soil compaction, changing the grade, watershed and exposing the trees to elements can all affect tree health and longevity.
If trees mature and are surrounded by other trees they get used to those conditions.They sway and protect each other from wind and sun. When suddenly exposed to the environment, they can develop unnatural bushy limbs. These limbs are a reaction to the sudden change. This steals resources from natural development. Some species of tree even graft together through root systems and share nutrients. This is what is meant by "trees talking" and having families. They depend on each other for survival and what is done to one, can affect many. Another common injury trees sustain from clearing is base damage from machines. This happens to the best of us, especially in tight areas. These wounds can take energy from the tree to heal. They are also an opening for infestations and diseases. My point is that it is not always as simple as whacking down trees and yanking them out. Stump grinding is also another factor. Some counties require that stumps be grinded out instead of pulled. This is to prevent sinkholes. They also might not let you disturb the soil until a septic company is involved and onsite.
For all these reasons, and many more, Old Town Tree has upped our game when it comes to clearing projects in Winchester, VA. We have bought larger equipment and trucks. Most tree companies focus on residential. The goal there is to have large enough equipment that can be transported easily. Light and mobile. The bigger companies have massive equipment that requires flagging vehicles and permits to move from job to job. There is a huge gap in the middle. That is why we have bought a whole new fleet that is dedicated to the middle. We can still move fast but also have equipment and trucks large enough to stay efficient and relevant in the 3-12 acre market. We can add attachments to our full size skid as well depending on customer needs. Forestry and disc mulchers can clear smaller trees and understory brush pretty quickly. Those attachments do not always leave the best finished product though. It is, as always, not identifying customer needs and achieving realistic goals at fair price points. Let our Certified Arborist discuss and plan your next lot clearing job in Winchester, VA.

Old Town Tree has purchased a new Bandit 19XPC wood chipper. This new machine is a beast. It enables us to proccess larger pieces of wood. This in turn adds to our productivity. The less wood we have to cut and haul the better. This system makes our loads out more compact, allowing us to haul more off faster.

Now offering themed stump grinding services in Winchester,VA 22601. Thanks Miller Tree Experts in Berryville, VA 22611 for assisting with this treeage. For this project we had to barrow a stump grinding machine that we could unlock the wheels. We had to push the machine through a hospital without the engine running. The fumes from the exhaust would have set off the smoke dectectors. This was a fun stump romoval project that we did through Reading Landscapes Inc.

Old Town Tree and Landscaping took on some VDOT tree projects this year. Safety is always the biggest priority when doing tree work along any roadside. Safety for our employees, pedestrians and traffic. Our goals with this project were to removed any dead or hazardous trees and prune any trees affecting visiability. We had to prune branches away from road signs and to improve the line of sight. We worked under the guidelines of the county Arborist, along with our Certified Arborist, Jack Boothe. This is not the most exciting work but it is a good service that needs to be done. It also keeps us busy through the slower months. We will tackle any tree job big or small. We carry enough insurance to submit bids on government contracting work. We also prune trees according to ANSI A300 pruning standards. Again, big shout out to Adam Durbin with Hop Skip and a Stump LLC. We grind plenty of stumps locally in Winchester, Va 22601. It is always nice to have Adam help support us on larger stump removal jobs. having him helps keep us focused on tree removal and tree trimming. It helps us meet our deadlines and we are always happy with his work!
