Although tree removal is a last resort, there are circumstances when it is necessary. One of our arborists can help decide whether or not a tree should be removed. Our professional crews have the skills and equipment to safely and efficiently remove trees.
Removal is recommended when the tree:
The safety of you and your family is our primary concern. If you suspect a tree has become unsafe, or if you are in a full-blown emergency, please call us right away. Our staff will quickly and professionally handle even the most technically challenging removals.
We work year-round! In summer (the growing season of a tree), it is easiest to evaluate the health of the tree and do minor trimming or thinning. However, during the months of November through March (a tree’s dormant stage), it is the best time for the health of the tree to do the heavier pruning. Keep in mind that with no leaves on the tree, we have better visibility when working along roads. Our job is also made easier during this time, not only because there are no leaves, but also due to things like your flowers or lawn not needing to be avoided in order to be preserved.
Yes! Routine pruning improves the health of trees, restores shape, and prolongs their life. The removal of weakened, dead, diseased, or insect-infected branches that might snap during heavy winds or ice storms is beneficial in preventing storm damage. Pruning reduces the chance of breaking limbs by decreasing a tree’s wind resistance, enabling it to move with the wind.
Pruning large shade trees by homeowners should be limited to the branches that can be easily reached from the ground. Large tree pruning is a job that should be left to trained and experienced professionals because it can require climbing and the use of dangerous equipment like heavy saws, chain saws, and cherry-pickers. Personal safety should never be compromised when pruning a tree.
Using improper pruning techniques can expose a tree to disease and can leave it in poor health or even dead. Flush-cutting a tree limb or leaving stubs may lead to decay and slow healing of pruning wounds.
Stump grinding or stump removal is a technique performed by a specialized machine and a professional operator to remove the tree stump, as well as the roots, 8-20 inches below grade. This procedure is typically performed on the same day as tree removal.
Here are some reasons why stump grinding should be done:
The cutting teeth of the grinder are designed to cut and pulverize wood and soil into a wood chip and soil mixture.
No need for you to be onsite during an estimate as long as we have safe access to the area of work. If you are not home when the estimate is given, we will leave a card in your mailbox or front door letting you know that we had visited the property. You will receive a detailed written estimate for discussed services via e-mail.
Yes. If you prefer, we can cut, split, and stack your cut tree. Ask us about pricing for these and other services we offer.
Yes. Cleaning up your property or lot, especially adjacent to neighboring property, is certainly a considerate thing to do. Clearing an overgrown lot also makes the property far more appealing to you and your neighbors. Additionally, a well-kept lot keeps rodents and other vermin from taking up residence.
Our lot clearing services will de-clutter your property so you can see what you have under all of the buckthorn or brush thickets. Our process of clearing lots leaves unobstructed property that builders tend to appreciate.
Regardless of the brush and tree thickness, we are capable of grinding our way into the property, leaving behind a mixture of mulch and sawdust, which will serve as a soil enhancement on most properties (of course, we can remove the byproducts if desired.).
