Have you been to Cheekwood to check out the treehouses yet? If not, it’s a great activity for you and your family, especially during the Summertime at Cheekwood event! Treehouses have been a child’s playground for years, and a place where one makes memories and builds friendships. So if you love visiting Cheekwood, building your own tree house is a great idea!
A few things must be done first to ensure your trees and its branches are stable and healthy before the house installation. Services like tree care analysis and tree inventory are good things to check off your do-list before you begin building.
Tree Health Care Analysis — Even if you’re not in the market to build a treehouse, tree health care analysis is always a great service to consider. The Parke Company’s team of arborists will implement a variety of management tools to determine your tree’s health and longevity, provide preventive measures from disease and infestation, and educate proper soil and water maintenance. If you plan on building and/or installing a tree house, knowing the health and needs of the tree is crucial to avoid any unnecessary damage or destruction of both the treehouse and the tree.
Tree Inventory — This service will provide a full and detailed report of all your trees on your property including location, identification and condition. Similar to health care analysis, having tree inventory can help you determine the health and needs of all your trees. The Parke Company can discuss with you the best trees on your property suited for a treehouse based on the analysis and inventory.
Other Services — The Parke Company can assist in other services to streamline the installation process. Services might include crown thinning for your branches, playground surface materials, weight reduction and many others. All these services are important to consider on the front end to avoid any unnecessary hiccups along the way. If you need to remove branches for improved sunlight or if you’re looking to lay down material underneath for a safe playground, the Parke Company can help find what you’re looking for.
