A tree is a vacuum system that responds to temperature changes and that grows in a pretty much mathematical way. If the system or the growth model is affected, the damage is irreparable. You can compare trees to a Gauguin, Klein or Rothko, the difference being that paintings can at least be restored.

Trees are far from demanding, but if limited in freedom or room to grow, they will either stagnate or go downhill.
The reason why people started researching various levels of damage in trees, conditions and triggers of illnesses and degradations, is to be found in the US sometime in the fifties.
The wood industry had the government sponsor research into the consequences of thinning in forester areas. While thinning, falling trees would often hit other trees (that were meant to be left standing), causing irreparable damage. For economic reasons alone, they decided to research what it was they were doing wrong when thinning.

One of those professors dedicated his life to spreading the word about what a tree does and does not need. This caused a boom in research and collecting data by a passionate generation during the nineties.

Thanks to today’s means of communication we are easily able to exchange information and experience, something that can only aid our quest for better tree-care.
As mentioned in previous pages, we are often asked to consult during the planning stages of building; we also often work with landscape architects.
Furthermore, we deadwood trees when necessary, this requires a special climbing technique. We also advise clients what the needs of their trees are. Drawing up tree inventories is also one of our many tasks. Inventories help you visualize and draw up an action plan for the maintenance of the area.
