Tree Maintenance – Trimming, Removals, Fertilization, Pest Control, Mauget Injection System
Trimming and Removals
All trimming methods meet the standards and practices established by the American National Standards Institute's A300 – Tree Trimming Standard, the International Society of Arboriculture, the Tree Care Industry Association and the Arbor Day Foundation. Before any pruning begins and after arriving at your property, our tree contractor will announce themselves and then begin work. All trimming work we do along power lines is done by directional pruning techniques that result in limbs being cut back to another existing branch, crotch or trunk. This approach tends to guide new growth away from power lines while taking advantage of the natural ability of trees to heal-over pruning cuts made at those locations.
CSSI Inc. understands the many benefits of trees to our environment and their contribution to the quality of life in the communities we serve. We will only completely remove trees when it is prudent or necessary to do so. Trees are cut down only with the consent of the land owner and only after they have been identified as being a high or immediate risk to safety or reliable electric service.
We use Only Trained Professionals when Performing Tree Work.
CSSI Inc. uses only nationally recognized, insured, and properly certified contractors to perform tree work along our power lines. CSSI Inc. tree crews work year-round to provide you with safe and reliable service with the least amount of inconvenience to you. CSSI Inc. requires that contractor employees receive extensive and on-going training in proper pruning techniques, quality customer service principles and worker safety.
When the job is done, tree crews will chip and haul away smaller trimmings and do a general clean-up of the work area. Larger limbs that have value as firewood will be cut into manageable lengths and left at the base of the tree for your use unless other arrangements have been made. The resulting wood will be handled per your written agreement.
All trees need revitalization through feeding. Trees and shrubs absorb needed nutrients and water through their roots. Standard fertilizers you may spread on the ground often don't reach the tree's roots. Liquid fertilizer, on the other hand, is injected below the ground into the root zone or injected directly into the root itself. This gives the tree valuable nutrients that can be used immediately.

General Pest Control - Whether you are experiencing a severe infestation, or just desire routine maintenance, we are here to help! We offer monthly, quarterly or one-time treatments for the control of general insects such as bees, fleas, spiders, rodents, crickets, roaches and ants.
Wood Destroying Insects - Did you know that there are many insects that cause damage? While most people think of termites as the culprit, powder post beetles, wood borers, carpenter bees and carpenter ants, can cause costly damage, too. We offer wood destroying insect inspections for real estate transactions, and also for the responsible owner who wants to protect their investment. We work closely with the customer to determine the best course of treatment when an infestation is noted.
Tree and Shrub Spraying - This program consists of treatments during the growing season. Routine inspections and treatments will help to control the presence of scale, aphids, lacebugs, spider mites, bagworms, webworms, and other destructive insects. By knowing what insects are prevalent during certain times and weather conditions, we can stay ahead of the insect populations.
Mauget Injection System
Fertilizer, insecticide or fungicide is injected directly into the tree where the roots meet the trunk. 100% of the chemical goes where it's needed...inside the tree.
This is a truly leak proof, completely closed system with a hermetically sealed capsule, a simple two piece system engineered to provide consistent safe performance for many years to follow.
Injection is effective on a variety of tree pests and fungal diseases. Beetles (including elm leaf, Japanese, and Asiatic garden) lace bugs, weevils, thrips, aphids, borers, and many other pests can be controlled by tree injection. As with many other pest control methods, injections are more effective as a preventative measure than they are at wiping out existing infestations.
