Monster Tree Service wants to remind our customers that autumn is the perfect
time to get your trees ready for the upcoming winter storms...
Today I wanted to tell you about a tree of particular fascination to me,
the Money Tree. Oh, do I have your attention now?...
In case you were wondering about the meaning and origin of Arbor Day, I
am taking some time today to elucidate you...
Once again, today’s blog has nothing to do with trees because we
are taking a break to celebrate and eat, eat, eat sugar cookies! I think
this is a great holiday, second only to Donut Day. Last donut day I went
to four different grocery stores and bakeries to find donuts only to find them...
Today I would like to speak a little about tree assessment and risk management.
There are three broad factors to consider when trying to give an assessment
of tree risk.
What is the potential for tree failure
. Failure of the tree is the likelihood that the entire tree, or part of
the tree will break or fall...
At Monster Tree Service we care deeply about the health of your trees.
Tree pruning a large tree should always be accomplished by having someone
climb into the tree without the use of tree climbing spikes. This is climbing
equipment that has spikes that you mount around your boots so you can
step up a...
Hello Monster Tree Service readers. I found an interesting article from
the Minnesota DNR which explains simply how trees grow. (So, thank you
Minnesota DNR). I know it seems obvious, but I love to break things down.
Let’s explore. A tree is technically a woody plant. Trees grow throughout
their lives and they grow in three areas...
Hello. Today at Monster Tree Service I would like to discuss some reasons
for tree planting. Did you know that the traditional 5th anniversary gift
is wood? Wood symbolizes that a relationship has become solid and long-lasting.
So, purchasing and planting a tree would be a mighty affirmation and a
joyous way to celebrate that...
Hello. Today I am once again using information I found on the DNR Website
for the state of Minnesota. Thank you again, DNR for all the informative
and interesting information! In particular, the article about the 52 trees
that are native to Minnesota. Remember, when you are interested in planting
a tree, Monster Tree Service...
Okay, anyone who read my last blog, “Minnesota Has 52 Native Tree
Species” will remember that I made a lot of promises about following
up on some loose threads. Since there were so many unfulfilled
branches (wink wink)
of exploration, let’s list them and decide what to write about today.
Deciduous Forest Biome Known as Taiga Tree Allies Drupelike Seeds Okay...Read more
Yes, the saga continues. Today I am making good on my promise to explore
the term “drupelike” seeds and “tree allies” which
we uncovered in our exploration of coniferous trees. Drupelike, you’re
up. Let’s go to the dictionary. Okay, the word “drupelike”
isn’t in the Oxford dictionary. Maybe its slangy because the word
“like” is attached. The...
Hello Monster Tree Service Readers! As some of you will recall, I promised
to list the deciduous trees that were native to Minnesota. As a review,
the word deciduous is an adjective which means 1. Shedding the leaves
annually, as do certain trees and shrubs, 2. Falling off or shed at a
particular season, stage...
Good Morning Monster Tree Service Blog Readers. Today I have done some
research for you on the topic of tree survival during the frozen winter

example of when you start to...

Hello and Welcome to the Monster Tree Service Blog. Today, by request,
I will be sharing some more awesome tree jokes, and because, no kidding,

part of this committee. I’m not complaining about their work, on
the contrary, they had...
Monster Tree Service works year round to provide our customers and their
trees with the appropriate service during the proper season. Every tree
has different needs, and every tree has a different SCIENTIFIC CLASSIFICATION.
Let’s examine what this might mean. Plant classification, or

Ah, the ash tree. So ironic that it can symbolize sacrifice. As we have
previously discussed, the poor ash tree is in jeopardy in Minnesota. And
now to see that it
sacrifice and sensitivity combined makes perfect sense. The fact that it
also symbolizes awareness is bringing out the mother in me and makes me...

happen. Monster Tree Service will help you fully enjoy your...
