First, examine the rope on both sides of the cutting chain for cuts and chips and also check for signs of wear and tear on the connecting points between both ropes and the cutting chain. If there are any defects replace the saw before using. Place the rope over the limb you are going to cut, pull the rope until the tree limb sits in the center of the cutting chain. Grasp both handles of the rope saw firmly, then pull the handles of the rope saw in a sawing motion to cut through the limb. Be very careful not to use excessive pressure on the rope or it may become stuck and embed itself into the wood.

Cabling and Bracing
Cabling is performed as a preventative safety measure. Trees that are damaged or that have the potential for causing damage by splitting or falling are often cabled to help reduce the risk of further damage. Cabling can also be used to help stabilize a multi-trunked tree

Cabling/bracing reduces the risk of tree failure resulting from structural weaknesses (V-shaped crotch), storm damage, mechanical injury, rubbing or long heavy limbs Cabling or bracing is only recommended for valuable, mature trees that have some serious structural defects. Cabling and/or bracing will make them safer, but will not solve the original structural problem. For example, when two trunks are joined with a very narrow angle, the trunks are usually structurally weak. When there is a wide angle, there is more solid wood at the junction. Narrow angles have what is known as “included bark” at the joint area, resulting in a weak joint. As the tree gets older, a fissure sometimes develops, and the tree splits in a wedge-like manner. Cabling and bracing holds the trunks (branches) together and decreases the chance of splitting. This also prevents the entry of moisture into the heartwood which can lead to decay. The hazard is reduced significantly, but never completely. Trees that have been cabled or braced should be inspected on a regular basis.

Cabling is not a homeowner job. Special hardware is required, and special techniques are used. Cabling should only be done by trained professionals as incorrect procedures can do more harm than good.

Cavity Treatment
While it will not cure decay, proper cavity treatment in combination with regular pruning, feed and insect/disease control may help improve a tree’s defenses. Filling cavities in otherwise healthy trees is generally considered to help improve tree appearance, promote wound closure and prevent water and animals from entering the hollow.

Lightning Protection
It only takes seconds for lightning to strike a healthy 50-year old tree down. While a tree lightning protection system will not prevent a tree from being struck by lightning, it is possible to equip a tree so that lightning will be conducted harmlessly downward, dissipating itself into the surrounding soil. This is accomplished through the installation and use of a system of heavy, copper cables which is secured from the highest point in the tree, and usually the ends of major branches, proceeding down the trunk and into the soil beyond the tree’s main root area.

Hiring a Tree Service
At Legacy Tree Trimming, we want you to know what to look for in a certified arborist and tree service company. Whether you choose us for your tree service needs, or one of our competitors, there are certain things that you must look for when shopping for a tree service. The high cost of a low estimate isn’t always immediately apparent, but with over 20 years in the business, Legacy Tree Trimming knows what you need to look for when hiring a tree care specialist.

Experience, education and a good reputation are signs of a good arborist.

You may find flyers for tree services on your front door or in your mailbox, offering “discount” tree trimming and removal services. Most reputable tree service companies have more than enough work without soliciting door to door for business. This type of advertising can be especially common after storms, when non-professionals see a chance to earn some quick money. Storm damage can be especially dangerous to you and your home and an uninsured non-professional can cause further damage or put you in great risk of liability if they are injured while working on your property.

Be cautious of a tree service that specializes in “tree removal.” This invariably means they are not certified arborists. A true “specialist” will never remove a tree unless all other options have been exhausted. A reputable tree service respects the trees they care for, and will never use climbing spikes to climb a tree unless it is dead and marked for removal.

If you had a pain in your arm, or a rash on your leg, you wouldn’t expect your doctor to amputate, so why allow that to be done to your trees? Many tree trimming companies reach for the saw as a first option, but we know for a fact that removal is rarely the first line of treatment. With over twenty years experience in the diagnosis and treatment of pests and pathogens that affect trees, Senior Legacy Tree Trimming Arborist Al Malnik can provide you with a clear course of action to best treat your tree’s affliction with minimum impact to it.

The first step is to examine the tree’s health in its entirety, including a comprehensive assessment to check to properly identify the tree and any abnormalities in its overall appearance. Next, a comprehensive examination of your landscape and the roots will determine if there is a leaf born or root born stressor or pathogen affecting your tree for fungi, viruses, bacteria, and an overall stress assessment. If common infectious diseases and stressors can be ruled out, we then examine other factors that can affect your tree’s health.

Next, a close examination of the trunk and branches for marring or wounds will determine if pathogens or wood-rotting organisms have entered from damaged areas of your tree’s bark. Finally, we take note of the position of all leaf damage. Did you know non-infectious diseases account for the large majority of all plant problems in some areas? Nutrient deficiencies, temperature extremes, vandalism, insecticides, pollutants, and drought can cause these. Since these disorders often produce symptoms similar to those caused by infectious diseases, it is essential to distinguish between the two in order to give proper treatment. Senior Legacy Tree Trimming Arborist Al Malnik and his crew have the experience and expertise to handle all aspects of your trees health, from sapling care to diseased tree removal.

By choosing Legacy Tree Trimming to be your comprehensive tree care experts, you are not only getting the combined 50 plus years experience of our senior staff, but the commitment of every Legacy Tree Trimming employee to your total satisfaction and the best possible care for your trees. From sapling to towering majesty, Legacy Tree Trimming has you and your tree’s best interest at heart.

commercial Insurance

If you are running a trucking business or any business that has multiple vehicles then there is one thing that is on your mind. Getting insurance on all your vehicles. Luckily many companies offer fleet insurance to cover businesses for just such an occasion. Commercial fleet insurance is a little different from regular insurance in a few ways.

For instance while regular insurance covers a few small vehicles; commercial fleet insurance covers your entire fleet. This is generally sold at a lower price then insuring every car and truck one at a time. There is less paperwork involved as well. That’s a good thing regardless of what type of business you run.

Commercial fleet insurance isn’t just for trucking companies. Many businesses whether they be large or small use fleet insurance if they have more than 3 vehicles. Catering services will often employ it on their vans in case of an accident. In this case they might have addition coverage if the food is damaged. Not joking, food is a business product nowadays and it takes time and effort to make stuff for large events. In the event of an accident you need coverage on your products.

Besides food catering shipping companies also use commercial fleet insurance. This is essential for all their delivery trucks. As you can guess they have full coverage in the event something happens. Keep in mind these delivery trucks are full of packages whose value can get quite high. Having insurance that covers these is important.

Truck fleets use commercial fleet insurance for obvious reasons. Owning over 50 big rigs can be a strain and you need to have them all on one insurance form. This makes it easier to organize in the event something happens. Of course if something happens there are going to be more pressing matters than just getting your papers in order.

There are many other kinds of vehicles besides semis and delivery trucks that need insurance. But we don’t have time to go over all of them here. Suffice to say companies offer many programs to suit a variety of business needs. Prices vary on type of vehicle and coverage amount required. Additional cost will be determined if you need anything extra on your trucks.

Normal companies use the commercial fleet insurance as an economical approach for their sales representatives and other staff who have a company car. Naturally taxi owners really need to have commercial fleet insurance, they would be lost without it.

Additional costs might include hazardous materials coverage. In the event of a wreck that involves hazardous or flammable materials this will cover any damage done by the cargo to anything outside the truck. This is needed if you’re hauling hazardous or flammable material. Most cities don’t like it when truckers come through with no insurance and are hauling tankers full of gasoline.

Commercial fleet insurance is a great thing to have if you are dealing with a fleet of vehicles. Remember insurance is required for all vehicles whether they are part of a fleet or not. Safe driving is a responsibility and laxity in that responsibility can lead to some auto accidents. Auto accidents lead to court cases, and court cases lead to paying out a lot of money. No one wants that now do we?

Every business or company holds the legal responsibility to provide workers compensation insurance for their employees. Although some jobs are not that much exposed to risks, the law says that this form of insurance is mandatory for every employee. In other cases, the job might be quite risky and the insurance will cover the costs in case accidents happen. The workers compensation insurance is extremely useful and this article will present you 3 advantages that you can get if you have such an insurance plan.

1. Your medical bills will be paid. In case of accidents, a particular employee might not be able to work anymore and he might also need treatments. However, it is not his fault if the employer was neglecting the working conditions and he is guilty for the accident that has happened. In this case, the workers compensation insurance will pay for the employee’s recovery. Regardless of the duration of the treatments, the insurance will take care of all the medical bills until the employee is fully recovered and he is able to come back to work.

2. Retraining costs. In some cases, different employees lose their skills and dexterity while they are recovering from an accident. When they come back to work, they might not feel that comfortable as before and they need to be trained again in order to get their skills back. However, the retraining costs don’t have to be supported by the employee because it is not his fault that he has been involved in an accident at work. The workers compensation insurance will eventually pay for his training courses in order for him to be able to practice his job again.

3. Survivors’ compensations. In some unfortunate cases, the employees might actually die in the accident and the workers compensation insurance will ensure that the family receives the required sum of money on a regular basis. This sum of money is usually enough to pay the bills and similar things.

As you can see, workers compensation insurance is very important because it guarantees that you get professional help and financial stability until you are back on your track. Also, there are insurance companies that can offer you more info regarding this type of insurance and you shouldn’t hesitate contacting them if you want more details.

Although workers compensation insurance’s terms and clauses differ from country to country, the employee will always be at advantage and his rights will be respected. In some cases, injury attorneys can be contacted in order to make sure that the insurance company is paying the right amount of money.
