OUR SERVICES

Tree Removal

In the unfortunate event that a tree must be removed it is important it is done correctly with emphasis placed on the safety of workers and property. There are a multitude of hazards involved in removing a tree and only a trained professional should undertake a tree removal. 

Wildlife Habitat

Why not turn that dead or dying tree into a place where birds can live and raise their young?  We are trained to carve and create habitats that attract desirable species to your yard.  We can perform this service using existing snags or by leaving a section of trunk after a scheduled removal.

Thinning

Our goal is to prune each tree for maximum health and aesthetic beauty. Pruning is standard for most trees. Dead wood and large crossing branches are removed while simultaneously thinning the tree evenly to create an aesthetically pleasing overall shape.

Canopy Restoration

We select the best “sprouts” at the top to become the new canopy of the tree. The other crowding or damaged tops are removed. The remaining large lower branches are thinned to relieve the extra weight they have accrued as a result of overgrowth. Canopy restoration is a process completed over time.

Fine Pruning
Risk Assessment

Mostly aesthetic, fine pruning refers to the special care taken to prune valuable specimen trees: japanese maples, magnolias, rhododendrons, dogwood, katsuras etc. The same principles of thinning and deadwooding are applied, but extra care is taken to maximize the beauty of the tree. 

It is important to know the health of your trees, and our ISA Tree Risk Assessment Qualified (TRAQ) Arborist can provide you with a formal and professional safety assessment.  As credentialed professionals, we are able to write reports for submission to insurance companies and local municipalities.  Ask us about our reasonable report rates!
