Comprehensive Tree Removal Services in Athens

We offer comprehensive tree removal services that encompass a range of effective methods for removing trees and stumps. Our expertise includes crane-assisted tree removal and efficient stump grinding techniques.

Safe and Swift Tree Removal by Certified Arborists

Our dedicated team of arborists swiftly and safely removes smaller trees. Whether it's dispatching a deceased tree, eliminating a damaged or diseased tree, or cleaning up a toppled trunk or branches, we've got you covered. Our teams of accredited arborists have undergone extensive training and earned at least three years of experience before seeking certification. We put this wealth of knowledge and expertise to work for you.

Efficient Crane-Assisted Removal for Large Trees

A crane is an efficient and safe tool for removing large or awkward trees. It not only minimizes the time required for removal but also leaves minimal impact on the surrounding area. With the crane, there's no need to fell the tree before segmenting it. Our team performs a controlled cut, carefully removing sections and promptly hauling them away.

Enhance Your Property with Strategic Tree Removal

There could be practical reasons for tree removal such as a tree growing into power lines, within falling distance of your home, or obstructing traffic view. We also remove trees that hinder the growth or health of nearby trees. From thinning overcrowded trees to making space for a new home extension, sometimes a tree needs to be removed to accommodate other plans.

Stump Grinding for a Pristine Landscape

Neglected stumps can become a nuisance and detract from the aesthetic appeal of your landscape. Instead of trying to uproot and remove a stump, our team specializes in stump grinding - a more efficient and less invasive alternative. Choose combined tree & stump removal for a completely clear yard.

Identifying When Tree Removal is Necessary

We assess a range of factors to ascertain if your tree poses a falling risk. Our evaluation includes the entirety of the tree, the ground, the trunk, and the crown. This comprehensive outlook allows us to establish if your tree is a potential threat to you or your neighbor's property.

You should request a tree removal evaluation if you notice any of the following signs:

  • Abrupt or heavy leaning. A sudden lean suggests possible root system failure, which generally indicates that the tree is hazardous. In other situations, we can determine why your tree has started leaning and advise on the necessary care.
  • Visibly damaged or decaying roots. Trees can endure root damage up to a point. However, in certain cases, the damage could be beyond repair. Our arborists will consult with you and assist you in making informed decisions regarding your tree's health.
  • Significant cracks, cavities, and crevices in the trunk. Damages from insects, diseases, windstorms, lightning, fire, or accumulation of ice or heavy snow on the branches can harm trees. When cracks or cavities penetrate the bark, they impact a vital layer of the tree responsible for water and nutrient distribution. If over 25% of the bark is damaged, professional removal is likely necessary.
  • Dead or hanging branches in the upper crown. This could require careful trimming measures, but it may also indicate that the tree is unhealthy. Our arborists will inspect the tree to identify any crown-density reductions that could maintain the tree's health and prevent removal.

Secure your family and property, remove damaged or troubling trees from your landscape, and introduce aesthetic changes that make your yard feel more like home.

Our History

In 2008, Monster Tree Service began as a small tree service company providing arboricultural care to Pennsylvania, Delaware, and New Jersey. Our founder was committed to promoting the growth of healthy trees and giving homeowners unparalleled service while taking care of their yards and homes. As a result, when other tree service businesses struggled to find jobs, our company kept working through every season, growing and expanding like the trees we care for.

Customers love working with us because we’re honest. When we tell customers they do or don’t need a particular service, they know we mean it. Because we care about trees, we’ll always fight for ways to rehabilitate your tree rather than remove it. When we do recommend removal, it’s because we know it’s the only thing that’s safe for your home and family.
