Tree care often overlooked; turn to an arborist for help

Tree care is an important part of the regular maintenance of your landscaping. Some people, including some landscape companies, overlook this important component of your landscaping.


It may be surprising that trees can be missed, but it does happen. Some only care for their trees when branches are about to fall or they’ve already fallen, perhaps crashing through a lanai.

After Crawford has planted some trees for you - or even if we didn't - look to us for taking care of them.

Not all landscaping companies offer arbor care or should be trusted with it. That's why you should let Crawford's team of arbor care professionals manage your trees to ensure their beauty and health year-round.

Our lead arborist, Phil Buck, is a board-certified master arborist - one of only eight in Florida! With Phil’s expertise, we're able to create custom hardwood and palm management programs to meet both care and budget requirements.

Phil leads our team of experienced and insured trimmers to keep your landscape looking pristine.

“We provide a systematic evaluation of your trees to ensure healthy preservation of our client’s landscape,” he said.

When managed properly, trees and, especially palms in Southwest Florida, can enhance your property in many ways. Not to mention giving birds a place to call home, creating wonderful shade and adding beauty.

Trees can increase your property value? The Arbor Day Foundation reports that in Fulton County, Georgia, mature trees positively influenced home sale prices, selling for nearly $105,000 more in neighborhoods with mature trees.

Removing branches that are dead or dying not only improves the overall appearance and structure of the tree, it can increase sun exposure and air circulation throughout the tree and its underlying landscape. This will ensure your trees live a long and healthy life.
