  • Damage, disease or safety concerns can turn some trees from an asset into a liability. When this occurs, our bonded and ISA Certified Arborists can be trusted for safe and efficient tree removal service in Knoxville, TN.

    • Chipped or peeling bark and cracks in the trunk
    • Cavities in the trunk or large scaffold branches
    • Dead or hanging branches in the upper crown
    • Fine twigs without living buds near the ends of the branch

    • Your tree appears too close to power lines
    • Branches are close or are touching your home
    • You see dead, unsightly or loose hanging branches

  • Proper tree planting and transplanting are often underestimated. If done incorrectly, it can impact the growth and longevity of your trees.

    There are many factors to be considered:

    • Local weather conditions
    • Regional pests and diseases
    • Soil conditions
    • Equipment and tools

    With Cortese’s tree planting and transplanting services, we have the tree knowledge and experience to ensure the health and safety of your trees. Our ISA Certified Arborist works closely with you throughout the entire process.

  • Mitigate tree safety risks with our storm damage prevention and support structure systems for trees. All services are performed by ISA Certified Arborists.

    Lightning Protection for Trees

    We use heavy gauge copper cables to divert damaging lightning safely away from your tree into a buried ground rod.

    Our tree protection system also includes a fuse that monitors the tree. So, when lightning strikes, we will be alerted if the tree was hit.

    Tree Cabling & Bracing

    We use flexible steel strand cables and braces to reduce stress damage on your tree from severe weather. By installing cables, you are strengthening weak tree branches or limbs.

    Start protecting your investments, and call 865.935.4890 to schedule a consultation or send us a message.

  • Proper mulch installation is important to a healthy, thriving landscape. It can help conserve moisture, suppress weeds and moderate soil temperature.

    When mulch is too high and sits too close to a tree’s trunk, it can cause damage to your tree.

    Your local Knoxville Cortese team is here to help, contact us to make an appointment or call 865.935.4890.

Knoxville Local Plant Health Care

  • Cortese Tree Specialists focus on improving the biological health of your soil and protect against disease and insect issues by providing quality care.

    Your custom tree fertilization plan is designed to provide the proper amount of nutrients and minor elements for your trees, which is done in two ways:

    1. Liquid Soil Fertilization: uses a high-pressure soil injection for placing fertilizer and micronutrients where needed in the root system immediately. 

    2. Micro-injection Fertilization: small holes are drilled directly into the sapwood of the tree and a pressurized capsule filled with fertilizer is installed.

    Call 865.935.4890 to schedule a free tree and shrub consultation.

  • During an arborist tree inspection, we also examine the health of your soil. A common issue we see is soil compaction. Vertical mulching can help reduce the effects of soil compaction and address root issues without damaging the tree.

    Some of the symptoms of soil compaction include:

    • Yellowing of leaves
    • Premature fall coloration
    • Overall decline
    • Undersized foliage
    • Stunted growth

     Call 865.935.4890 to schedule a free consultation of your property.

  • Soil invigoration is a treatment for declining and construction-impacted trees. The main cause of the damage is often compacted or poor-quality soil.

    Some conditions to look for, that may require soil invigoration, include the following:

    • Little to no topsoil
    • Compacted soil
    • Standing water
    • Overall decline of landscape
    • Difficulty establishing turfgrass
    • Cracking soil

    When a tree is left untreated, the damage will compound because of additional stress which could initiate the mortality spiral.
