EMERGENCY SERVICES Emergency
Tree Care is one of our specialities. We have crews on stand by at all times. Ice, Wind, and Lightning are
just some examples that could cause limbs or entire trees to fall, often landing on other trees, homes, cars,
or other structures. The weight of storm-damaged trees can be great, which adds to the danger of
removing or trimming them.
If you have a Tree Emergency please call the office so that we can
arrange an appointment to meet with you right away. If an emergency arises after or before our regular office hours,
please call our office at 746-8580. You will be directed to our voice mail, which will provide you with an emergency contact
number. We will arrange to meet with you as quickly as possible.

TREE REMOVAL Some potential reasons for tree removal
are dead, dying, hazardous, crowding and causing harm to other trees, disease infested, or location. Tree
removal is one of the most hazardous aspects of arboriculture. Routinely tree workers must cut down trees growing
in restricted areas, near homes and utility lines. Tree removal requires a substantial amount of experience to be
performed safely and without causing further damage to the site.
Our crews are trained
in the proper procedures and techniques too safely and efficiently remove trees.
PROFESSIONAL PRUNING & TRIMMING We prune to the current ANSI Standards
Specific types of pruning may be necessary to maintain a mature tree in a healty, safe, and attractive conditions.
- TREE PRUNING FOR HEALTH includes the removal of dead, weak,
and broken limbs, which could result in decay, diseased, or insect infested branches. The removal of live branches
is necessary from time to time to allow increased exposure to sunlight and circulation of air within the canopy. This
method creates a better structure to lessen wind resistance and reduce the potential of breakage due to wind damage.
- THINNING is the selective
removal of branches to increase light penetration and air movement through the crown. Thinning opens the foliage of
a tree, reduces weight on heavy limbs, and helps retain the tree's natural shape.
- CROWN CLEANING is the removal of dead, dying, crowded, or
weakly attached branches from the crown of the tree.
- A CROWN REDUCTION may
be needed to improve the shape, silhouette, height, or spread of the tree. Reduction v's topping, reduction helps
maintain the form and structure of the tree.
- RAISING THE LOWER
LIMBS is removal of the lower branches from a tree in order to provide clearance
for buildings, vehicles, pedestrians, and personal preference for outlook.
Trimming for WEIGHT REDUCTION is vital to
minimize chances of limb breakage
- Tree Trimming for APPEARANCE & RESTORATION is essential for maximizing the beauty
of your landscaping.
- Tree Trimming for STRUCTURE
ENHANCEMENT is mainly performed in younger tree pruning also known as DEVELOPMENTAL TREE PRUNING. Training younger trees is
one of the most important procedures for your new planting to help ensure sound structure and branch location.
Specific types of pruning may be necessary to
maintain a mature tree in a healthy, safe, and attractive condition.
STUMP GRINDING Stump Grinding
is the mechanical grinding of a trees roots, below ground level. We achieve this with 2 machines, our large tow behind machine
and out small track grinder. Our tow behind machine is used for large, easy to get to stumps; this machine is towed
with a truck from our fleet. Our track grinder is used for stumps in tight and confined area; this machine will
fit through a standard 36" gate.
We grind stumps 8-12" below grade, the stump hole will then be filled in with the stump grindings; the
remaining excess mulch does remain on premises.
grinding of surface/running roots is not considered part of the stump grinding process. This option is available
at an additional cost as is the hauling away of the excess mulch.
Although we do, our best to avoid causing damage to underground systems, the machines do not
differentiate between tree roots and underground obstructions. We cannot be responsible for damage to underground
←Stump Grinding mulch is mixture of wood and soil, which is left on site unless otherwise stated.
Roots are the apparent surface/running roots →
