Truck and Chipper



Regular pruning improves the health, appearance, and safety of trees. As experienced arborists, we determine the right type of pruning for the trees on your property. Pruning may involve:

• Eliminating branches that rub against each other.
• Removing dead, dying, or weak limbs.
• Removing limbs that interfere with wires, buildings, gutters, roofs, chimneys, and windows or obstruct streets or sidewalks.
• Removing diseased or insect-infested limbs.
• Creating a better structure to lessen wind resistance and reduce the potential for storm damage.
• Training young trees to grow into well structured trees.
• Removing branches or thinning to increase light penetration.
• Improving the shape and aesthetics.

Tree Removal

Trimmed Maleleuca Trees

Sometimes it is necessary to remove a tree to ensure safety or improve the appearance of your property. This service is usually offered as a last resort when a tree is:

• Causing obstruction not correctable by pruning.
• Dead, undesirable, or an invasive species.
• Considered hazardous.
• Crowding or causing harm to other trees.
• To be replaced by another specimen.
• Located in an area where new construction requires removal.
• Causing damage to a sidewalk, driveway, foundation, etc. due to invasive stump and/or roots.

Stump Removal

Stump Removal

After the tree is removed, stumps/surface roots can be unsightly and hazardous, and can continue to grow. Reasons for stump grinding are:

• Improves the landscape visually
• Can eliminate any further damage to your cement structures, foundation, sidewalks, driveways, etc.
• Can prevent roots from growing into plumbing

Root Barrier Installation

Root Barrier Installation

Installation of root barriers is a good deterrent to help prevent roots from causing damage to driveways, walkways, etc. Our machinery creates a thin trench which allows us to install the root barrier, which helps to prevent roots from entering into unwanted areas. Key facts about root barriers:  

• Helps prevent roots from damaging your driveway or walkway, etc. 
• Allows you to keep your trees, shrubs, and other plant material that may cause aggressive, damaging, or unwanted roots 

Brush Chipping

Brush Chipping

After a tree is trimmed or removed we can provide brush chipping services. Benefits to this are:

• Reduces the limbs or branches into fine chips, eliminates unnecessary hauling
• Wood chip mulch can be beneficial for keeping weeds down
• Wood chip mulch can help retain water when put around trees or bushes, which helps with the drought situation

Emergency Tree Service / Preventive Tree Care

Storms and high winds can cause limbs or entire trees to fall. Storm-damaged trees can pose a serious safety risk to your home, car, or other trees or structures on your property. Trees or limbs that break or fall at times may be sudden and unavoidable but in other circumstances it may be preventable. Trees that haven't been pruned for long periods of time may pose a safety risk simply because the trees/branches may become too heavy or unstable, and this can result in tree or branch failure. Diseased trees may also pose a risk for tree or branch failure. No one can predict what a tree will do with 100% certainty, but to help prevent property damage from occuring due to storms, high winds, lack of pruning maintenance, or disease, we recommend you consult with a Certified Arborist.
