ArborScape will not be responsible for damage to underground utilities from tree or stump removal, aeration, deep root fertilization, planting or other work that requires soil removal or penetrations. Underground utilities include any wire, pipe or anything buried underground.

Customer is responsible for all reasonable costs and expense of collection and/or lawsuit, but not limited to reasonable attorney fees.
Tree Pruning Classes or Types of Pruning
Class 1 Fine pruning (small to medium trees from 5 ft to 25 ft) – Fine pruning shall consist of the removal of dead, dying, diseased, interfering, objectionable, and weak branches as well as selective thinning to lessen wind resistance. Dead wood up to 1/2 an inch in diameter may remain within canopy/lead area
Class 2 Medium pruning (medium trees 26ft to 40 ft) – Medium pruning shall consist of the removal of dead, dying, diseased or obviously weak branches, 1 inch in diameter or more within canopy/lead area.
Class 3 Large pruning (large trees 41 ft and up) – Large pruning shall consist of the removal of dead, dying, diseased, interfering, objectionable, and obviously weak branches, 2 inch in diameter or more within canopy/lead area.
Class 4 Cutting back or drop crotch pruning – Cutting back or drop crotch pruning shall consist of the reduction of tops, sides, under branches, or individual limbs.
Safety Trim – Removal of broken and dead branches 4″ in diameter or bigger within canopy/lead area.
Tree removal – Removal of the tree to as close to the ground as possible. A stump 12 inches high or less could remain after tree removal.
Stump Grinding – Will meet Denver’s guideline of 6″ deep. An extra charge will apply for for deeper than 6 inch stump grinding. No responsible for broken windows or other home fixtures.
We follow Colorado State University’s recommendations of five applications of professional-grade fertilizer, including one pre-emergent fertilizer application. Spot spraying for broad-leaf weed control is part of this recommendation.
Lawn aeration – Pull plugs 1″ to 3″ depending on soil moisture. It’s helpful to water before this service. Please mark sprinkler headlines. Not responsible for damage to underground irrigation or sprinkler system lines as also noted above.
Winter mite control – Two applications in winter on warm dry days. Warm days promote mite activity. South and west facing areas of lawn are more susceptible to mite damage.
Necrotic ring spot (NRS) – Requires timed applications of fungicide and proper watering to control this fungus. Promoting lawn health through aeration and fertilization is also necessary to combat NRS.
Lawn insect control – Major pests in Colorado and the Front Range consist of grubs, sod web-worm and bill-bugs. Timed applications throughout the summer aid in controlling these pests.
Shrubs and Bushes
Shear – Shear shrubs and bushes with a gas powered hedge trimmer to create a uniform appearance.
Hand prune – Shrubs and bushes trimmed with hand pruners to reduce size and keep natural form.
Rejuvenation prune – Shrubs and bushes cut to 6″ to 12″ from grade or ground level to promote new growth.
Renewal prune – Removal of old stock (larger branches) to promote new growth.
The ArborScape Terms and Conditions are subject to change at the sole discretion of ArborScape’s management team. Thanks.
