One Two Tree was proud once again to lend its long time support to the annual Mercedes Benz Corporate Run. This 30th anniversary Marathon was especially important because of the passing of Hans Huesby (last November), one of the creators of the event, one of the founders the Miami Runners Club and owner of Footworks in South Miami.

One Two Tree honored Hans by hanging a banner in his memory from the boom arm on one of our tree trimming trucks, high above the starting line. Our trucks are used each year to hoist event photographers above the crowd for that incredible view.

landscaping-miamiThere are many do’s and don’ts that will improve the health, quality and appearance of your lawn, landscaping, trees and palms. Some steps are simple and fall into a category of what a homeowner can and should do. Other steps are best left to experts that have the credentials, experience and tools of the trade.

When it comes to maintaining a healthy lawn and landscaping, the correct amount of water, the time of day the water is applied, proper nutrition and pest and disease protection are all critical components to success. Every homeowner should know how to operate their irrigation system and at least be able to change watering schedules for all seasons. Changing the volume of water and adjusting the area of coverage are most often handled by a professional. The application of nutrition and specialty products that control pest and disease have evolved tremendously in the last 10 years and are also best left to a certified technician. Even the application of fertilizer is newly governed by local ordinances.

Trees have many of the same basic needs as a lawn or landscaping plants, however, trees also have specialty needs that an arborist should be consulted for. A homeowner should pay attention to general appearance because a noticeable change can indicate a heath concern but in most cases, pruning techniques, especially for storm considerations, are better left to an experienced and trained Certified Arborist.

 

Palms are prevalent in, and synonymous with, South Florida. Only a small variety of palms are native to our area. The vast majority are not. South Florida soils are actually very deficient in several of the most important nutritional elements palms rely on for optimal health and therefore the proper fertilization (different from tree, lawn and plant needs) is critical to healthy and attractive palms. Additionally, over pruning of palms is sadly a common practice in South Florida and results in stressing or even killing your palms.

 

Lawns, landscaping plants, trees and palms can all deteriorate very quickly from improper care, basic healthcare neglect and cultural problems, and all take much, much longer to bounce back.

Quality advice is just a click or phone call away. Protect your “green” investment and it will come back to you in many satisfying ways!

About the Race

The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® Series is the largest series of 5K runs/fitness walks in the world. Over the past 19 years, the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale community has raised millions of dollars to fund the fight against breast cancer through the Komen Race for the Cure.  Over 100,000 people have participated in the 5K walk and run, One Mile Fun Walk and Tot Run since the first Miami/Ft. Lauderdale Komen Race for the Cure in 1995.

This unique event is designed and implemented to promote positive awareness, education and early detection of breast cancer. Up to 75 percent of the funds raised at the Race remain in Broward, Miami-Dade and Monroe counties to provide breast health research, diagnostics, screening, treatment, services and education for uninsured or underinsured women. Please visit our grants page to see who received this year’s local grants. The remaining 25 percent goes to fund national research to discover the causes of breast cancer and, ultimately, its cures.

Deep look into Tree Trimming Miami Florida Video Transcription

On the Trimming side of our business we pride ourselves on extremely high quality tree work. We have very experience crews, the lead trimmer or foreman of each crew has been with this company for over 15 years.

They do this day in and day out. They have an excellent eye for shaping and balancing trees for diagnosing and recognizing problem areas in trees high risk situations with branches that may converged or rub against each other, branches that may be heavy and extend over the roof of the house or close to other structures over driveways, proximity to sidewalks and areas that involve pedestrian’s, over playgrounds, backyard play areas there’s a lot of considerations of what goes into deciding on how to trim a tree.

Again we pride ourselves on our crews  having that experience taking the time to evaluate  trees before they start to trim come up with the game plan and that also kind a general consensus between the  tree crews and myself. I typically review the jobs before the crews go out.

I’ll go over the details of what were going to do how were going to do it with the customer and then it’s my responsibility to convey that to each crew make sure they have the good understanding of what’s involved in each job and they go out and obviously perform the work and which I’ll typically supervise throughout a given job of trying to be there at the start to do a walk thru and discuss the particulars with the foreman and then turn them lose and then try to check them out once or twice throughout a job and certainly do a final review at the end.

One of the primary dangers and it does get a lot of attention perhaps not enough throughout the year every year, sadly we always hear about people getting electrocuted.

So one of the biggest dangers is the tree branches that come in close proximity or actually touching the power lines. And there is also misconceptions about people look up their power lines and the ones that are typically closest to the trees or the low heavy black insulated lines which are actually no danger most of that are communications and data cables that are no threat.

But above those looks like skinny little wires at the very top uninsulated are a lot of the primary electrical lines carrying high voltage and another misconception is that a lot of people think you have to come in contact with those lines before you get electrocuted the reality is you don’t you need only be close with a metal tool in your hand (a saw type situation).

The electricity is powerful enough to arc and jump and make that gap within a few feet and sometimes more, Very often that’s how people get hurt or killed is by reaching out trying to trim a branch knowing they’re not going to touch the power line but they don’t realized that they’re too close and they can make a connection and we read about it in the news.

I’ve seen in the news people dying in Dade Country, Broward County getting electrocuted. People should definitely be cautious and hire a professional.

Absolutely, including there are situations were we turn down that work. Even though we have the know how and we have the tools. Utility pruning is a specialty in itself and we’re limited on what we can do, a certain utility pruning must be done, by the power company’s tree service. We know our limitations but it is something we review. We look at it and I make a decision a head of time, yes we can handle this safety or if it is questionable at all we will pass and refer it to the power company.

The risk of do it yourself tree trimming video is part of an ongoing series geared towards educating South Floridians to carry out safety.
