Standard Tree Removal
Our standard removal will be completed using varying techniques depending on the nature of the job. This might include technical rigging, use of a crane, or simply felling the entire tree. Once down, we will dispose of all tree material.

Down-Only Removal
A down-only tree removal consists of safely taking the tree down either in one or multiple pieces. There is no cleanup, firewood cutting, or limb removal. This option is the least expensive and the perfect fit for the budget-conscious property owner.


Structure Pruning: The proper removal of dead, dying, diseased, weak branches, epicormic branching, and conflicting growth.

Thinning: The selective removal of branches to increase light penetration, air movement, and reduce weight.

Raising: The removal of lower branches to provide greater clearance from the ground upward.

Crown Reduction: Reduction of the height and spread of a tree.

View Clearing: The selective thinning of the framework of limbs or an area of the crown to allow for a specific view.

Restoration Pruning: Pruning to improve the structure, form, and appearance of a tree that has been severely headed, vandalized, or storm damaged.

Dead Branch Removal: Pruning to remove all hazards currently present in a tree’s canopy such as dead, broken, and hanging limbs.


Stump Grinding is the favored way of the stump removal methods. Grinding the stump will help eliminate the spread of fungal spores by virtue of the air. Leaving a stump will take a lot of time for it to rot away and could. We leave the grindings for our customer, unless directed otherwise, as they make for great mulch.
