Residential & Commercial Services
Trees are beautiful, they create shade, attract wildlife, and make a lovely sound in the breeze, therefore it can be hard to imagine what your yard would be like without them. But sometimes an old or decaying tree can be much more harm to keep than it’s worth. It is often a difficult decision to let a tree go, but it’s important to consider the alternatives
We recommend that a dead or dying tree be removed as soon as you recognize it. The longer you put it off, the more dangerous the tree can become, and the more dangerous it can be to remove it.
Reasons to Remove a Tree:
The tree is dead.
The tree is unhealthy. Take notice if the top of the tree or branches are dying back, or the trunk shows signs of decay.
The tree was damaged in a storm. If enough of the tree was damaged it may be beyond repair.
The tree is growing too close to – or the roots are encroaching on- your house, barn, utility lines or other structures.
The tree is leaning in a dangerous direction, like toward your house, driveway, deck or your childrens’ play area. Sometimes this is not so obvious!
The tree drops troublesome leaves or needles, sap, seeds, cotton, and/or branches.
The tree is blocking your views or is creating too much shade and inhibiting your lawn to grow.
You are planning landscape renovations that would damage the tree.
The tree has structural problems, such as interior decay.
The tree has formed a bad crotch
There are cracks in the main trunk or leaders
The tree is too large for its location and poses a danger if it should fall or drop branches.
The tree is in the way of construction or will be mortally damaged by heavy equipment.
A disease or insect infestation will eventually cause tree death or spread to other trees.
There is significant crowding among trees on your property.
Tree Trimming & Pruning
Why is it important to trim your trees? Because it improves their appearance, it makes them healthy, and it makes them safe.
Trimming back dead branches lessens the potential fire danger should your tree or any structures nearby catch fire for one. Another safety concern is debris on the ground. Not only can this be potentially dangerous for pedestrians, but if left unattended for long periods of time, dead plant matter can mold and rot which attracts insects. This can also happen within the tree itself. If dead matter if left untrimmed the decaying material can attract wood boring insects which will weaken the tree and eventually cause it to fall.
Proper trimming of trees promotes health beyond that of just safety. It's better to prevent any safety hazards by promoting healthy tree growth. By removing any dead matter you are making room for the tree to grow new, healthy branches and leaves, and instead of using its resources to combat disease and pests, it can now develop a healthier root system.
Beyond health and safety, what people will notice first is the appearance of a nicely trimmed tree. Keeping your trees somewhat uniform in size by trimming is an easy way to develop pleasing aesthetics. If you groom your lawn and plants well, no matter the size or species of the tree, your yard will be appealing visually. By removing rotting leaves, dead shoots, and unhealthy branches you are able to showcase a healthy, handsome, lawn.
Trees bring value, character and enjoyment to properties. They offer shade to homeowners for cooling during the summer and protection in the winter. For commercial properties, trees make the property more attractive, and can reduce maintenance costs. Studies have shown that having trees also decreases crime rates and improves air quality!
So if you’re thinking of planting trees and shrubs around your property, before you start dragging trees around and digging holes, talk with the tree experts at Salas Services who have the proper tools and equipment necessary to safely move large plants around your property and properly prepare root ball holes and plant beds.
Trees and shrubs can be a big investment and planting the right kind of tree in the right place is important for the long term health and survival of the tree.

Sprinkler Installation & Repair
Irrigation can benefit your landscaping efforts by providing artificial water to your lawn or soil. In warmer climates or during periods of drought or little rainfall in more temperate areas, irrigation can be a cost-efficient way to ensure the sustainability and diversity of your landscaping.
The best benefit of an underground sprinkler and irrigation system is the automation of lawn care. Sprinkler and irrigation systems help you water consistently and effectively, limiting the amount of watering each time. They help conserve water, enabling you to set them to water during overnight hours to take advantage of the coolest possible temperatures. They can also be easily adjusted during droughts or water conservation periods.
Sprinkler systems also allow you to customize your watering strategy according to your lawn - its shape, size, and type. They come in a variety of types, including oscillating, revolving, stationary, and traveling sprinklers. From basic to complex, we professionally install both residential and commercial underground sprinkler and drainage systems. These systems can range in technique from multi zone residential or commercial irrigation systems and surface drainage to sub-surface drainage designs, and may include the use of catch basins, channel drains, french drains, and/or sub-surface drains with sump pumps.

If a tree has been removed from your yard then it is important to have the stump removed as well. Decaying stumps are breeding grounds for pests like termites and white ants, and they can ruin the overall appearance of your yard.
A rotting stump is an issue that many business owners and homeowners deal with. Although a tree may seem harmless, it actually has the potential to cause a lot of problems. In order to avoid any major issues, it is important to hire a professional tree service company to remove your tree stump.
The best and most effective way to get rid of a tree stump is by grinding the tree surface roots as well as the stump itself. This reduces re-growth, making the ground safe and more suitable for landscaping or any purpose you prefer.
Stump grinding is a complex job that requires proper expertise and the right equipment, however it is fairly inexpensive. Salas Services has experienced professionals that are specialized in stump grinding and have equipment and machinery to ensure safe and effective tree stump removal while providing the service quickly.
Many experts recommend cleaning your gutters at least twice a year– once in the late spring and once in the late summer/early fall. If you have pine trees growing above your house, consider inspecting your gutters every 3 months.
Why is cleaning your gutters necessary? When enough debris gathers inside a gutter to form a clog, the runoff water has no place to go but over the sides of the gutter. This results in water trickling or pouring onto the ground near the home, often in places which have been carefully landscaped. Over time, this can flood a flower bed and destroy a landscaped area. If the runoff water leaks over the rear edge of the gutter, it will usually come into contact with the fascia boards of the home and may even run down the home’s exterior. Besides causing erosion, water can seep into your home through rotted fascia boards and wind up in crawlspaces, behind walls, or inside attics- this trapped moisture may eventually form mold or mildew. Falling water can also seep under your home, where it can compromise your foundation. So we recommend being proactive with your home by getting your gutters cleared twice a year.

Whether your area is a garden, building plot, large construction site, or even a woodlands, we can clear trees, large timber, stumps and vegetation for potential future development or for basic vegetation management.
One of the top reasons for site clearance is due to a property development project. Whether you're starting a landscaping project, building an addition to your home, or clearing for commercial purposes, you'll want an experienced, fully-insured company to undertake the work and Salas Services is the company to call.
Site clearance involves specialist equipment as well as the experience to undertake the work. It can involve the removal of trees of various sizes and shrubbery, hedges and other plants.

Sometimes site clearance isn’t just about emptying the site but also renovating the landscape that will remain in order to accommodate the new construction. We can help with everything from tree pruning and lopping to tree felling and hedge trimming. This means that the landscape that remains after the clearance has taken place is smart and ready for the new building.
