Answers by Tree Sculptors
Dedicated to caring for and protecting trees, Tree Sculptors offers tree services to customers in Central and Northern New Mexico. The study and management of plants is a complex and important field. With our knowledge and experience in tree care, we are committed to providing extraordinary value added services. For your guidance, our team has answered some of the frequently asked questions below.
- How can I get an estimate for tree work and how much will it cost?
Just call us at (505) 239-8733 or email us at email@example.com and give your name, address, contact number and a convenient time for us to come. If you can't be present, we can go on site, assess the situation, then call you and/or send a written estimate. This service is FREE. We can usually perform the estimate within 24 hours of your call.
- How long is the bid price valid?
Usually, it is valid for 90 days, but we will consider extending to meet your need.
- Are you licensed, insured, bonded?
Bonding isn't applicable in our business, but we are licensed and fully insured (including workers compensation, vehicle and general liability) to protect you, our employees and our business.
- Once requested, how soon can the job be completed and how do I pay?
Depending upon customer requested time, season and type of job, usually within a week. No advance pay is required (and we recommend that you never pay a similar service vendor in advance). You can pay the job supervisor upon completion, mail a check to our post office box, or call us with credit card information (MasterCard or Visa). For your protection, we destroy credit card information after processing.
- When is the best time to prune a tree?
That varies by species, age, condition and location. Most can be safely pruned anytime except during budding. For example, flowering trees are best pruned immediately after blooming; fruit trees either before or after blooming, depending upon desire for fruit; and, evergreens best during winter dormancy.
- Should I fertilize trees and how often?
In our nutrition-deprived soil, trees at least a year old can benefit from periodic fertilization, initially in the spring and fall, then the following spring, and annually for several years thereafter, as needed according to emerging conditions.
- When you plant a tree do you guarantee its survival?
Because we haven't initially grown the tree and don't provide its continuing care, we don't guarantee survival. If, however, our planted tree dies within the first year, we will plant at no cost another tree you purchase.
