Professional tree care for residential and commerical properties in New York City

Home Landscape in New York City

If you need tree service in Manhattan, hiring an experienced company is critical. That's because tree service in New York City tends towards the complex. Before any tree work even begins, we often need to deal with city regulations and permits, permission from abutting property owners, communicating tree assessments and plans to co-op boards and other decision makers, and more. The work itself often involves navigating tight spaces and requires special attention to the safety of nearby people and property. At Almstead, we have been working in Manhattan for decades and understand what it will take to complete the tree service you need efficiently and safely while maintaining a high level of quality.

The average lifespan of a street tree in New York City is around 7 years, and many other urban trees don't fare much better on their own. With unnatural sunlight conditions (either especially shaded or hit with glare from surrounding buildings), limited access to water, regular exposure to pollutants, and tight space for both roots and canopy, trees require our attention to overcome the constraints we've placed on them. A lot can be accomplished through proper pruning (making cuts that improve tree structure and minimize the possibility of decay from pruning wounds) and a strong soil and root care program that addresses the need for a healthy soil ecosystem that retains water and nutrients. In addition to the care we can give them, some trees are simply better equipped to handle urban conditions. These include Plane Trees (also called Sycamores), Ginkgos, Lindens, and Honey and Black Locusts among others.

A note about our New York City service area: In addition to serving Manhattan, Almstead also works in all of the Bronx and limited areas of Queens and Brooklyn.
