Common Questions About Tree Care

Is my tree dying?

Worried about your trees? Just like us, trees sometimes just need a helping hand. But even a seemingly healthy tree might have hidden problems, and a struggling tree could bounce back with proper care. Our certified arborists know what to look for to keep your trees strong and beautiful. Request a quote to get a diagnosis from a certified TomBom arborist.

How often do trees need to be trimmed?

We wish there was an easy answer but the response will vary based on many criteria. Every species of tree grows at different rates and has differing implications for how often it will need pruned. Among shade trees, there are trees that can need trimmed every other year. There are also ones that can go seven years or more between pruning. Evergreen trees most times will need little or very infrequent pruning if planted in the right location.

For some recommended best practices for tree pruning & trimming, check out our Guide to Pruning Trees.

How should I water new trees, shrubs, or plants?

You may have just invested in having a landscaper install new trees, shrubs, perennials, annuals, and or groundcover plants in your landscape and would love them to survive. Watering these plantings properly is the most important factor in getting your investment to pay off. Don’t rely on Mother Nature to keep your new plant watered; you will need to supplement rainfall to ensure it starts well.

For more on watering new plants, check out our article: Tips for Watering New Trees, Shrubs, and Plants.

Do Your Trees Have Leaves That Look Like This?

Boxwood Leafminer

The Boxwood Leafminer is not a typical leaf-eating insect. Instead, it is the larva of a small orange fly that inhabits and damages the leaf tissue of boxwood plants by feeding within the leaves themselves. This activity forms blisters or bubbles on the undersides of the leaves, which is a telltale sign of infestation (see image below).

Over time, heavily infested leaves can turn yellow and drop prematurely, severely weakening the plant. Contract us for a quote if you’re seeing evidence of the Boxwood Leafminer on your trees.

Certified Arborist Company in Lancaster & Harrisburg, PA
"The expert tree-trimming crew did an awesome job on our five 50-70' trees, thinning crowns, cutting dead branches, and cleaning up. We were impressed with their abilities climbing with ropes and operating two cranes. At one point, three trimmers were working in our oak tree at once: two on separate cranes and one climbing. Thanks for a great job and the entertainment! "

"Brian Hauk came to our house and made an assessment of our hemlock tree fungus and made the appropriate remedy to fix our trees with soil injections. [Tomlinson] Bomberger did the job quickly and efficiently. "

Bob C.  |   Reading, PA

"Your Tree and Shrub technician does a great job, takes care of his equipment, and is very courteous. He even went down the road to wear off mud on his tires from a previous job so he didn’t get in on my driveway, as that’s where he needs to park to service my property."

Lisa B.  |   Harrisburg, PA

"Tomlinson-Bomberger does an excellent job maintaining our yard and we just also utilized their services for tree removal/pruning. They came early, did a great job, and cleaned up after themselves. I recommend their services without reserve. "
