What Do Trees Need To Be Healthy?

Trees are magnificent creations that stand as a testament to the beauty and power of nature. They are living, breathing beings that provide us with a host of benefits, from shelter and shade to the air we breathe. Like all living organisms, trees require proper care and attention to thrive. With leading residential and commercial arborists in Western Missouri and Northeast Kansas, our SAFETY Tree Service team understands the various needs of trees and how to keep them healthy and vibrant.

During hot, dry spells, it’s important to make sure your trees are getting enough water. But be careful not to overwater them, as this can lead to root rot and other issues. Our certified arborists can assess the soil around your trees to ensure they are getting the proper amount of water they need.


Trees need more than just water to be healthy. They also need nutrients, which they get from the soil. Over time, the soil around trees can become depleted of nutrients, which can lead to stunted growth and other issues. At SAFETY Tree Service, our Kansas City arborists can offer expert aid to restore the soil surrounding your trees with fertilizers and other beneficial treatments.


Tree pruning is a gentle touch-up that trims away dead or diseased branches, letting the tree breathe and soak up more sunlight. The SAFETY Tree Service team is well-versed in the art of residential and commercial tree trimming and we use the finest techniques to help your trees look their finest while maintaining their health.

Pest Control

Trees, despite their towering presence, are not immune to the threats of insects and diseases that can cause significant damage or even death. Without timely intervention, these issues can rapidly spread and become an overwhelming challenge. Among our tree care services is insect and disease control to help you identify and treat any potential threats.

What People Are Saying

  • Safety Tree Service did a great job trimming several elm and ash trees for me, as well as a few pin oaks. The pin oaks had various dead limbs that needed to be removed and other limbs that needed to be thinned. Ty did an excellent job removing the dead wood and trimming the trees, which helped reduce risk of damage from limbs falling and greatly improved the health and overall appearance of the trees. With the recent bad weather I’m glad I hired Ty as I’m confident one of the limbs would have come down on a power line. I received bids from multiple tree trimmers and Ty’s bid was very competitive and he was able to provide proof of insurance. Some of the other bidders offered lower prices but were not insured! I do recommend Ty to others as he did a great job for me.

  • We needed a to have a couple of large trees removed from our yard. Safety Tree Service did a great job. They raked and collected everything and left us with a totally clean backyard. If we ever need any tree services in the future I will definitely contact you again.

  • Safety Tree Service is always on time. They do what they say they are going to do. There is no smoke and mirrors with Safety Tree Service. I only recommend his company to all of my clients because I know he will treat them with respect and care.

  • We use Ty and his staff at Safety Tree exclusively for all of our tree work referrals. Our company conducts grounds maintenance on a wide variety of residential and commercial properties. We have referred our customers to Ty because they continually tell me how exceptional their overall experience was with Safety Tree. I have heard everything from “experts”, to “very professional”, to “very skilled”, to “clean” and “fair” used to describe their encounters. I would not hesitate at all to recommend Safety Tree to any private or public entity or for any project regardless of scope or size.
