Keene Tree Service: Professional, Full-Service Tree Care Company
Standing For Value, Quality, And Safety
By Lori C. Warner | Monadnock Shopper | April 21 – April 27, 2010
Keene Tree Services has been a cornerstone of the community since 1974. This full-service tree care and removal business offers everything from pruning and storm damage clean-up to fertilizing and injection treatments.
Owners Winn and Karen Johnson have seen many changes over the last 36 years. “The business has changed quite fundamentally,” says Winn. He goes on to say that everything in the industry – pesticide products, machinery and equipment, and state regulations – have made dramatic steps over the past three decades.
Keene Tree Service stands for value, quality, and safety. Winn grew up in the industry, as his father, Troy Johnson, had owned a tree service business. He learned early on that customers should receive quality products and services, at a great value, and done in a safe manner.
The crew at this tree service business are all certified, and take yearly classes to keep up with their certifications, as well as the changes in this growing industry.
The Johnsons have kept up with technology, and use only the best, state-of-the-art equipment. Keene Tree Service now has over 18 pieces of heavy equipment to help with any job – big or small.
But having all this equipment doesn’t mean that this tree service is a pricey outfit. On the contrary, Keene Tree Service offers comparable rates for their services, and with all the high-tech equipment, are able to do the job faster and more efficiently.
Keene Tree Service offers tree removal, limbing, pruning, cabling, bracing, stump grinding, mulching, bucket and crane services, fertilization, and insecticide treatment.
There are only a handful of certified arborists in New Hampshire, and Winn is one of them. His certification is with the New Hampshire Arborists Association, which means that he is highly qualified to correctly and efficiently care for trees and other woody plants. The crew at Keene Tree Service are pros when it comes to identifying and accessing potentially dangerous trees due to rot, damage or other factors.
They can also detect if there are problems with limbs, rather than the entire tree, and will remove dead, dangerous, diseased, or unwanted limbs – a process called limbing. Pruning is a more specific type of limb removal in which limbs and branches are thinned using techniques that an arborist is trained in. Spraying for pests or disease is a specialized segment of tree care that involves the use of pesticides to cure disease or eliminate pests.
Cabling and bracing is yet another way that Keene Tree Service can help in the preservation of trees. Cabling and bracing in the tree industry refers to the support of cracked or potential-to-crack limbs and trunks with steel cable or other support devices. This technique is a necessary and effective tool for the trained arborist.
Keene Tree Service is there in a pinch when Mother Nature decides to bring seasonal storms our way. They do work for residential, commercial, and municipalities; no job is too big or too small.
