Tree Removal

There are many good reasons to remove a tree from your property.

For instance, a tree might be diseased, dead or dying. Or perhaps new development on your property requires removing a tree that can obstruct your new build or view.

Whatever the reason, it’s important to use an expert and a Certified Arborist, especially in risky or tight-spot removals such as when power lines, homes or other structures are close by.

Depending on your preference, we can cut the trees into firewood or larger pieces or remove them from the property altogether.

Stump Grinding Service

Tree stump grinding is a very effective method for removal of tree stumps with minimal impact to your property and landscaping.

Tree stumps can be quite unsightly and leaving them on your property can attract pests that inhabit them like ants and termites. Not to mention, tree stumps make a veritable obstacle course riding mowers and vehicles on your land! Many property owners find tree stumps to present an unwanted liability to occupants and passers-by.

A tree stump on your property can also sprout shoots and continue to grow and their roots can pose threats to driveways, sidewalks, gardens and flower beds.

Tree Bracing and Cabling

Having your trees braced or cabled can prevent significant damage or injury on your property.

Tree cables and tree brace rods are supplemental structural supports implemented to reduce the risk of failure of weakened branches and multiple stems.

Support cables are typically made of of extra high strength steel and are attached to brackets in the upper crown of a tree to limit the movement of the supported branches so they are less likely to fail during extreme weather, high wind and storms.

Tree braces are threaded rods that are installed using unions of weak branches and multiple stems to improve support from torque forces that can be exerted in inclement weather.
