At Monster Tree Service, our professional arborists are passionate about tree health care, providing in-depth assessments to determine the root source of disease or damage so that we can revitalize it whenever possible. We also understand that in some cases, trees are beyond recovery and removal is necessary for safety reasons.
Using a combination of state-of-the-art equipment and industry best practices, we’ll safely remove your tree. We’re locally owned and operated with the backing of a nationally recommended company. This allows our team to provide comprehensive services at a price that’s cost-effective for you.
Our Local Tree Removal Services
Whether a tree has fallen, and you need emergency assistance, or you’re planning on removing trees for a project, our specialists provide reliable and effective tree removal services.
Using a crane to take away portions of a tree at a time is the most effective removal process. Not only does it reduce the time spent removing the tree, but it is safer to use in most situations and also leaves no impact on the surroundings. The tree no longer must fall before cutting and moving sections away – instead, our team will lift sections vertically up and away to a designated drop zone.
Over time, leaving a stump in the ground becomes more than an inconvenience – it becomes a rotting palace for pests that can damage your home. Rather than trying to dig up and remove a stump, stump grinding is a far more efficient and less intrusive option our team specializes in.
How Do You Know If My Tree is At Risk of Falling and May Need to Be Removed?
If your tree seems like a fall risk, there are many factors to consider. By taking note of the whole tree, the ground, the trunk, and the crown of the tree you may be able to decipher if your tree is dangerous or a natural occurrence that’s not a threat to anyone’s safety.
As you’re inspecting your tree, watch for these signs that indicate a potential risk:
Your Tree is Leaning
If the leaning is sudden, it indicates potential breakage of the root system, which likely means the tree is a danger. In other situations, whether your tree is leaning due to growing incorrectly or being disease-riddled is a diagnosis that our professionals can accurately make.
Your Tree's Roots Are Visibly Damaged or Decaying
Trees can survive damage to their roots to an extent. Some procedures can be taken to get the tree nutrients it needs, through soaking or aerating the soil, mulching, or cabling the tree. However, in some cases, the damage may have gone too far. Our arborists will discuss everything with you, and we’ll help you make the most informed decisions for your tree service.
Your Tree Has Extensive Cracks, Crevices, and Cavities in the Trunk
Trees can accidentally incur damage by people or nature – some common occurrences come from construction equipment, lawnmowers, storms, or fires. When cracks or cavities penetrate the bark, this damages a crucial layer of the tree. This layer allows for water and nutrients to disperse. If more than 25% of the bark has damage, it will likely need professional removal.
Your Tree Has Dead or Hanging Branches in the Upper Crown
While this could be a situation requiring careful trimming measures to remove branches that shouldn’t be there, it may also indicate a risk that the tree is unhealthy. Our arborists will inspect the tree to determine if it’s beyond saving or if there are crown density reductions that will keep the tree healthy without posing a threat.
Other Possible Dangers to Be Aware of
While the above instances are typical reasons for tree removal service, there are other situations you should be on the lookout for:
Your Tree is Located Near Power Lines
As you may already be concerned about, if your tree is near power lines, there is the potential for branches or the entire tree to fall on the lines, creating a dangerous hazard.
Your Tree is Located Within Falling Distance of Your House
Naturally, the last thing you need to worry about is a tree falling on your house, or a branch crashing through a window during a storm.
Your Tree is Obstructing the Road and the View of Drivers
Sometimes when trees don't receive maintenance, they can block signs, people or animals beginning to cross, or other vehicles coming near. Our professionals can take care of this hazard.
How Much is the Cost of Tree Removal?
It’s difficult to provide a clear cost for every job, as there are many factors taken into consideration when pricing a tree removal service. No two trees or jobs are the same. At Monster Tree Service, our professionals will conduct a thorough assessment and provide you with the options available and transparent pricing upfront so you can make an informed decision. Some of the main things we look at include:
Location and Accessibility
If the tree is at a safe location away from houses or other obstacles, your costs will likely be less than if there are risks for damages occurring during removal. The more complicated accessibility is, the more specialized techniques and equipment are needed to avoid potential liabilities.
Tree Height and Size
The height and diameter of the tree play strongly in pricing factors. For example, if the tree is very tall it will require more steps to take down piece by piece. Or, if you’re having a stump ground, a thicker tree will likely cost more than a slim tree and trunk.
There are many custom options clients can choose from – hauled away, or loaded into a chipper. whether you’d like to have logs split for fireplaces, Another preference that clients have could be stump grinding rather than stump removal. These different choices come with variable pricing, which we’re happy to discuss before services begin.
Similar to how accessible the tree is, the different equipment used requires various skills and certifications. One example is crane usage versus a more traditional method of removal – the crane is a large undertaking requiring special knowledge, but it’s far more efficient.
Safety and Risk
Are your professionals risking electrical shock by removing a tree from a power line? Has the tree been carrying disease for some time that is liable to fall or lose heavy branches at any moment? These are important questions that tree specialists must consider before acting.
Time and Crew Required
If you’re looking for lot clearing, you’ll want to think about how dense the lot is and how many acres of coverage you need. Another situation could be that more crew members must tend to a tree on a sloped lawn with muddy soil to avoid any accidental sliding and injury fallout.
While we may not be able to specify every scenario for pricing considerations, you can rest assured that working with our team will provide you with honest cost estimates. And our professionals have the skills to finish the job efficiently and safely.
Be Careful with Low-Cost Tree Removal Companies
It’s risky to trust just anyone with a ladder and a chainsaw who says they remove trees. While removing a dead tree from your property doesn’t require as much in-depth knowledge, you should look for a reputable company that understands tree health. Improperly trimming and pruning can permanently damage trees, causing complex problems down the line that will ultimately cost you more.
It goes beyond licensing to prove the legitimacy of business to having certifications that prove your specialists know the necessary information Certified arborists, such as our team members, must have years of relevant experience before applying to take a certification exam that they revisit every three years. Not to mention, arborists keep up to date on local regulations to keep compliant in all projects.
Removing the Tree Myself VS Hiring a Professional Arborist & Tree Removal Company
In some situations, you may consider felling a tree yourself. If that’s the case, you must have any necessary permits and protective equipment along with the proper tools for bringing the tree down. Remember that if something goes wrong in the process and you’re injured or your property undergoes damage, you’re liable for everything.
If you hire professionals such as Monster Tree Service, you’re no longer liable for potential accidents. We’ll check to ensure permits are obtained when needed. We also understand the health of trees – if you were to uncover rotting sections while removing the tree, you’ll enter complications quickly. We’ll know whether the tree has underlying conditions before conducting work to avoid these situations.
In general, we recommend hiring professional help unless you have training and experience in such areas, especially if the tree is larger than 10 feet tall.

Tree Removal Frequently Asked Questions
It’s not every day you’re wondering about tree removal services, so it’s natural to have many questions going into the situation. Let’s discuss some of the common questions we receive.
Why Can Tree Removal Be So Costly?
Tree removal pricing is very situational; for example, a mature, large tree near property structures that’s leaning precariously or has more than one trunk will require more strategy, crew members, and time to safely remove it. Different species of trees can have an impact on pricing as well. It’s important to get transparent pricing estimates to understand the breakdown of what you’re investing in – from the service to the credentials of the specialists performing tasks.
What Are Some Instances Where I Can Have My Tree Trimmed Instead of Removing It?
Not every situation requires the removal of a tree. Sometimes, it can recover back to a healthy and strong tree. Instances where you have your tree trimmed include:
- The canopy is becoming too dense to allow for proper sunlight exposure
- The tree is leaning just slightly, causing overhanging branches to limit views of the street
- The tree is not already dead or dying as a whole
Trimming trees is great for having better-looking and healthier trees that reach their full potential.
Does Homeowners Insurance Cover Tree Removal?
In cases with tree removal, homeowners insurance coverage questions are not cut and dry. In situations considered named perils, such as fire, lightning, or other severe weather where a tree or branch falls and causes damage to your property, you should be covered. However, if the tree falls far from your home due to a windstorm, you may not have coverage. Our team will walk you through the insurance and claims process, as this can be a confusing situation.
