Bluebird Tree Care
Trees sometimes develop structural weaknesses due to prior injuries. These structural defects can be caused by improper pruning, storm damage, lightning strikes, or early improper training. In cabling and bracing, specialized hardware is used to support trees that have weaknesses. If your tree has cracks, decay, or poor branch attachments, we can install hardware to help it better withstand the hazards of our Northwest seasons.
Bluebird’s certified arborists are qualified to inspect your trees to determine whether they need support. We only use hardware approved and tested by ISA, and we adhere to their protocol for installation.
If you have support hardware installed, it should be inspected regularly for safety and performance. We can work with you to arrange no-hassle regular inspections for any tree hardware we install.
Pruning is the process of directing a tree’s growth to help it reach its full potential in the space where it grows. The most effective pruning takes place throughout a tree’s lifespan, rather than in isolated instances that are aimed only at cutting growth back. Bluebird Tree Care’s crew has the knowledge and experience to provide effective pruning for your trees’ health and beauty over many years.
We offer many types of pruning:
It’s better to prune more frequently, with smaller cuts that direct branch structure and a tree’s shape over many years, than it is to remove large branches after a tree has been untended for a long time. Frequent pruning is safer and healthier for the tree, and easier on your bank account too!
We love to help our clients develop their landscape with new plants, shrubs, and trees. Working with Bluebird Tree Care to add new plants to your landscape can have a variety of benefits.

Bluebird Tree Care has qualified tree risk assessors on staff who are specially credentialed through the International Society of Arboriculture to evaluate any dangers that trees may pose to their environments. We are experienced in evaluating tree health and the likelihood of structural failure.
In technical terms, a hazard risk assessment measures what risk a tree poses to potential ‘targets’ around it—like your roof or driveway, for example. If a tree has no targets, it will not be deemed hazardous. This assessment puts the health and stability of your tree in conversation with the wider environment and helps you understand the whole picture. A hazard risk assessment also determines whether options such as pruning or cabling can mitigate risk, protecting both the tree and targets in the environment.
When our qualified risk assessors perform an assessment, we give you a written assessment. Based on that assessment, you make the decision about whether the amount of risk associated with a given tree is acceptable, or if it warrants removal.
