Family Tree Care’s Top Five New Year’s Resolutions


2018 is already here! Many Americans annually make brave resolutions to exercise, lose weight, reduce debt, or work on family relationships. These are great choices, but allow us to also suggest some property-value boosting resolutions we can help you complete!

While you can trim trees yourself, the results may be disappointing without professional expertise. Here are our top five New Year’s Resolutions for improving property value with the help of your friendly local arborists at Family Tree Care.

1. Get Rid of that Ugly Stump.

They are an eyesore, get in the way of mowing, may attract pests, and certainly bring down your curb appeal. We’ll bring our experienced crew and a stump grinder and have that removed for you in just a few hours.

2. Prune Your Fruit Trees.

If you properly take care of your fruit and nut trees, they will reward you this spring and summer with a better harvest. Incorrect pruning may actually damage the trees and reduce your yield.

3. Trim that Scary Tree that Worries You on Stormy Nights.

We in Washington are familiar with blustery nights. Sleep in peace knowing that troublesome tree overhanging your house or car has been removed. We have the tools and training to take it down quickly so you won’t be calling the home owner’s insurance the morning after a bad storm.

4. Improve Your Curb Appeal.

Even if you aren’t planning to sell or refinance, scraggly landscaping, dead trees, and stumps don’t do much for your property value. Call us to do a facelift on your trees, hedges, and other yard needs. If you are planning to sell or re-finance, well-kept landscaping gives a great first impression.

5. Have Your Trees Expertly Assessed.

An arborist can spot and diagnose tree problems you may miss such as early signs of disease or decay, girdling roots, crowding, or instability. Family Tree Care can recommend thinning, removal, or other remediation.

Family Tree Care owners Jay Brock and Johnny Marth specialize in pruning, tree removal and clean up, repairing storm damage, stump removal, and beautification. As ISA (International Society of Arboriculture) certified arborists, they serve the greater Tacoma, Lakewood and Puyallup.
