When Should I Consider Tree Removal?

Tree removal should be considered if a tree is dead, diseased, or poses a safety hazard to people or nearby property. Signs of a dying tree include a leaning trunk, missing bark, breaking or brittle branches, lack of new growth. If a tree's root system has damaged a nearby structure or causing issues with plumbing lines, removal may be necessary. It is always best to consult with our professional arborist to determine if tree removal is necessary. 

What Is Tree Pruning?

Pruning also helps to prevent damage caused during a storm by removing hazardous branches or growth. Proper pruning techniques will encourage new growth and prolong the tree's healthy lifespan.

How Do Professionals Remove A Tree?

Our professional tree removal starts with a risk assessment of the tree and surrounding area, identifying potential hazards, such as structures and power lines. The tree is then climbed and branches removed, before the trunk is cut down and lowered down in sections using ropes and pulleys. Finally, the stump is removed using specialized equipment through our stump grinding service. 

How Often Should Trees Be Trimmed?

The frequency of tree trimming depends on several factors, including type of tree, age, location, among other factors.
