We offer plant health care or preventive maintenance to keep trees in good health while reducing any insect, disease, or site problems. Allow us to recommend a comprehensive approach to managing your trees utilizing the most up to date methods available based on your needs and values.

High Pruning


Pruning is necessary to maintain or improve the health, appearance, and safety of trees. Pruning techniques include removing limbs that:

  • Interfere with utilities or structures
  • Obstruct streets or sidewalks
  • Are dead, weak, or decayed and pose unacceptable risk
  • Are diseased or insect-infested
  • Have been damaged by storms
  • Will increase light penetration and reduce wind resistance within the canopy upon removal (thinning)

Stump to be removed

Stump Grinding

As an add-on to another tree care service or as a stand-alone service, we can remove unwanted stumps from lawns and other accessible spaces. Our commercial stump grinder, rotates and chips the stump into a mulch- like substance. We back fill the space created by removing the stump with the mulch grindings.

Taking a tree down safely

Tree Removal

Although tree removal maybe a last resort for some of our clients, there are circumstances when it is necessary. They include trees that are:

  • Dead or dying
  • Considered an unacceptable risk
  • Causing an obstruction that is impossible to correct through pruning
  • Crowding and causing harm to other, more desirable trees
  • To be replaced by a more suitable specimen
  • Located in an area where new construction requires removal
TRAQ Qualified

Tree Risk Assessment Qualification

Owner Kevin Shrader is Tree Risk Assessment Qualified (TRAQ). This qualification promotes the safety of people and property by providing a standardized and systematic process for assessing tree risk. The results of a tree risk assessment can provide tree owners and risk managers with the information to make informed decisions to enhance tree benefits, health, and longevity. TRAQ allows All Seasons Tree Service to work with homeowners and commercial clients to assess the risk for insurance purposes.

Why Hire an Arborist?

Arborists specialize in the care of individual trees. They are knowledgeable about the needs of trees, and are trained and equipped to provide proper care. Hiring an arborist is a decision that should not be taken lightly. Proper tree care is an investment that can lead to substantial returns. Well cared-for trees are attractive and can add considerable value to your property. Poorly maintained trees can be a significant liability. Pruning or removing trees, especially large trees, can be dangerous work. Tree work should be done only by those trained and equipped to work safely in trees.

What is a Certified Arborist?

An arborist by definition is an individual who is trained in the art and science of planting, caring for, and maintaining individual trees. ISA arborist certification is a nongovernmental, voluntary process by which individuals can document their base of knowledge. Certified Arborists are individuals who have achieved a level of knowledge in the art and science of tree care through experience and by passing a comprehensive examination developed by some of the nation’s leading experts on tree care.
