Maintain a Healthy Forest with Proper Management

Written by
Maintain a Healthy Forest with Proper Management

Residents of the Front Range are no strangers to trees, but most of those in urban areas don’t have to worry about forest management techniques when tending to their properties. If left alone forests can manage themselves, but because of human involvement throughout recent centuries the balance has shifted, meaning we have to be more diligent in our care of forests.
Wildfires are a natural occurrence, and over time forests have developed ways to deal with them. Natural wildfires are meant to thin forested areas, clearing an area of inadequate trees and shrubs, and making room for new growth.
As humans have moved into forested areas, however, wildfires have been stamped out as quickly as possible. This has caused a buildup of fuel and changed the ecosystem in some forests, while making the wildfires that do happen worse.
Since we can’t allow our forests to burn, we have to work harder to care for our forests, and thinning is one way to do that.
In a forest, thousands of young trees, or seedlings, compete for the same space and resources. Some seedlings mature and grow faster than others and force them out; these smaller trees eventually die. Thinning is a way in which we can mimic the natural way of the forest and even speed up the process.
Oftentimes there are a few obvious criteria to determine which trees can or should be removed:
Smaller – smaller trees that have been surpassed by larger trees can often be removed. These trees have lost the battle for space, but our involvement often leads to their survival. Unfortunately, these smaller trees can allow a low-burning wildfire to jump from the forest floor into the tree-tops.
Erratic – Trees with excessive amounts of forks and crooks are more prone to stress and damage, to themselves and to surrounding trees.
Damaged – Trees that have been severely damaged by previous fires, insects, or other cases.
Wolf Trees – A wolf tree is a an excessively large, branchy tree that manages to crowd out growth of many surrounding trees. Removal is not always necessary, but can depend on the health of the tree.
Forests compete for a limited amount of resources. These weaker, damaged or unhealthy trees put more of a strain on healthy trees by taking some of those resources.
If your property is densely populated by trees and you think that thinning may be in order, let us know; we’d be happy to take a look. Keeping forests healthy not only benefits them, it can also keep you and your home safer.

  • Chris Reinholt was knowledgeable and helpful. He gave us free advice concerning other trees on our property. He managed to trim our tree without damaging any of the tender perennials that were growing under the tree. We are very pleased.

  • They were awesome. Did the job they said they were going to do, timely, affordable.

  • Excellent!

    rating 5 5.0
  • He was on-the-spot-Johnny which made my neighbor very happy, and took care of the fallen tree quickly and efficiently. Other neighbors were happy, too for letting them use the mulcher for their deadfall. Good guy, good work. I would definitely recommend and hire again.

  • Responded quickly, did a great job at a fair price.

    rating 5 5.0
  • Prompt, professional, and friendly service. His prices were also more reasonable than two other bids. I already had a ‘no show’ on this project so I was pleased when Reinholt gave me a quick bid and was able to complete the project swiftly. They also did a good job cleaning up the project debris neatly.

  • Reinholt Tree Care did a fantastic job. He worked around obstacles in my project, and did a very thorough job in getting the tree stumps well below grade. I am very pleased with the result.

  • They were quick, thorough and extremely neat when removing the diseased Aspen trees from our home. I would highly recommend them to friends and neighbors.

    rating 5 4.5
  • They did excellent work and were very courteous. They had good knowledge of trees and what needed to be done. Although I couldn’t afford to completely trim my tree at the time they went ahead and did more than we’d agreed on because the tree needed it. And I’m sure my neighbor appreciated it as well. Yet they only charged what was originally agreed upon. They were less than my estimate from someone else. They raked up the yard after they were finished. The only way anyone would know they were there was that my tree looks much better and is no longer impinging on the neighbor’s driveway. I will use them again and recommend them highly.
