Tree Care Before and After Photos

Here are just a few "before and after" photos of residential tree care projects we have completed.

 

Prized Ash Tree Saved After Ice Storm Splits Tree in Two

This beautiful ash tree, prized by the homeowners, was split nearly in two due to weight of heavy ice during a severe winter storm. After strategic pruning to remove excess weight, the tree halves were carefully pulled together and secured with permanent bolts. The tree will knit back together along the seam and the evidence of the damage will be nearly invisible.

Beautiful Japanese Maple Tree Restored After Ice Storm Damage

Before
After

This mature Japanese maple was drooping severely after being weakened by the weight of heavy ice during a winter storm. Careful pruning restored it to its natural beauty, strengthened the tree, and eliminated the risk of the drooping branches breaking.


Green Ash Tree Repaired

Before
After

This healthy green ash tree in Federal Way split unexpectedly under its own weight when its two main branches became too heavy. The home owners called Thundering Oak to see if their favorite tree could be saved. The Thundering Oak tree specialists pruned and thinned the tree to release weight from the two main branches then pulled the trunk back together. Next, the team permanently secured the trunk by passing threaded rods and bolts through the trunk. The tree will grow around the rods and bolts, further strengthening the trunk. Finally, the team cabled the two main branches to each other to provide support and keep pressure off the split below. The home owners were delighted that their favorite tree was saved and astonished that the split is now nearly invisible.

Evergreen Tree

Before
After

This beautiful evergreen tree in Tacoma is growing very near the house and was dropping tree pitch on the home owners cars. The tree was too dense considering how close it was growing to the house; it also filtered out nearly all sunlight preventing the grass from growing underneath. The tree crown was thinned, dead branches removed and branches thinned. This reduced the falling pitch, eliminated a nearly constant stream of dead needles that had been falling out of the tree and let sunlight into the yard to revive the lawn below.


Pine Tree Thinned and Dead Wood Removed

Before
After

This pine tree now frames the front garden and lets more light into the rest of the yard. The removal of dead wood in the tree reduced the hazards of injury or damage from falling limbs.


Tree Stump Grinding/Removal

Before
After

Using heavy duty professional equipment and a trained operator we removed six large tree stumps in less than three hours. Grinding tree stumps beautifies landscaping and removes the tree stump hazards.
