Our Local Tree-Removal Services
Tree-removal services encompass different tree and stump removal methods, including crane-assisted tree removal and stump grinding.
Standard Tree Removal
We remove smaller trees with a standard team of arborists working quickly and safely. Whether it’s removing a dead tree, taking down a damaged or diseased tree, or hauling away a fallen trunk or branches, we’ll get the job done. Our teams of certified arborists have undergone rigorous training and have at least three years of experience each before applying for certification. We put that knowledge and expertise to work for you.
Crane-Assisted Tree Removal
Using a crane is a safe and effective way to remove large or unwieldy trees. Not only does it reduce the time spent removing the tree, it also leaves minimal impact on the surroundings. With the crane, we won’t need to fell the tree before cutting sections away. Instead, our team performs a controlled cut, removing sections with care and hauling them away.

Over time, leaving a stump in the ground can become an inconvenience and an eyesore. Rather than trying to dig up and remove a stump, our team specializes in stump grinding as a far more efficient and less intrusive option. Combine tree & stump removal to clear your yard all at once.

How to Tell If Your Tree Needs to Be Removed
We consider many factors to determine if your tree is a fall risk. We take note of the whole tree, the ground, the trunk, and the crown. This way, we can decide if your tree is potentially dangerous and a risk to you or your neighbor’s home.
Call for an evaluation if you notice any of these signs:
- Sudden or heavy leaning. Sudden leaning indicates a potential breakage of the root system, which likely means the tree is a danger. In other situations, we can diagnose why your tree has started leaning and make care recommendations.
- Visibly damaged or decaying roots. Trees can survive damage to their roots to an extent. 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’s health.
- Extensive cracks, cavities, and crevices in the trunk. Trees can incur damage from insects and diseases, windstorms, lightning strikes, fire, or the accumulation of ice or heavy snow on the branches. When cracks or cavities penetrate the bark, they damage a crucial layer of the tree. This layer allows for water and nutrients to disperse. If more than 25% of the bark is damaged, it will likely need professional removal.
- Dead or hanging branches in the upper crown. While this could be a situation requiring careful trimming measures, it may also indicate that the tree is unhealthy. Our arborists will inspect the tree to determine if there are crown-density reductions that will keep the tree healthy and avoid the need for removal.
Cosmetic Tree Removal
You may also decide to remove a tree because it’s growing into or near power lines, growing within falling distance of your home, or obstructing the view of traffic. We also remove trees that are interfering with the growth or health of trees nearby. From thinning overcrowded trees to making room for a new expansion to your home, sometimes, a tree needs to be cut down to make way for something else.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost to remove a tree?
We take many factors into consideration when pricing a tree-cutting service, including location and accessibility, tree height and size, client specifications, the equipment and crew needed, and safety/risk. Our professionals will conduct a thorough assessment and provide you with available options and transparent pricing upfront so you can make an informed decision.
Does homeowner’s insurance cover preventative tree removal?
Homeowner’s insurance may or may not cover removal if the tree falls due to certain natural causes. If you choose to remove a tree to avoid a future possibility of damage, you may need to pay out of pocket.
Can removing a tree cause foundation problems?
Trees whose roots have grown under or near your foundation may cause problems when removed. As the roots decay, the soil may resettle, causing issues. However, a tree is far more likely to cause problems by growing roots into or around your foundation, so it’s still best practice to remove concerning trees.
Can I remove a tree myself?
While DIY tree removal is sometimes possible, it’s not recommended, especially if the tree is taller than 10 feet. Tree removal is dangerous and requires the proper licensing and permits. If something goes wrong in the process and you’re injured or your property undergoes damage, you’re liable for everything.
As a professional service, we’ll obtain permits when needed. We also understand the health of trees – if you were to uncover rotting sections while removing the tree, you’d run into complications quickly. We check for underlying conditions before conducting work to avoid these situations.
