Emergency Tree Work for Removing Big and Dangerous Trees

Our crew of seasoned arborists prioritizes safety above all else when removing large and dangerous trees from your property. We’re committed to following a tried and tested protocol to enable tree removals. It all starts with a phone call to one of our experts, where you’ll give us more information about the tree that’s causing problems, and we’ll let you know what we’ll do to remove it.

Safe Tree Removal Processes

First, we’ll thoroughly assess the tree, considering its size, condition, surrounding structures and foliage, and potential hazards. This evaluation helps us develop a strategic plan for the removal process. We carefully analyze the tree's structure and determine the best approach, whether it's a straight fell or a sectional dismantling technique.

Before we begin the removal, we’ll establish a clear work zone to facilitate the safety of our crew, your people, pets, and your property. During a sectional removal, our team will use state-of-the-art equipment, including cranes, ropes, and rigging systems, to carefully lower large branches or sections of the tree to the ground. This cautious approach minimizes any potential damage to structures and other nearby assets.

How Can Storm Damage Affect Your Tree?

Storm damage can have catastrophic effects on trees, impacting their health and structural integrity. When experiencing strong winds, heavy rain, or lightning wreaks havoc on your trees, certain tell-tale signs will let you know a tree might pose a threat and should be removed for safety purposes.

These include:

  • Broken branches
  • Uprooting
  • Leaning or tilting
  • Crown damage
  • Bark wounds
  • Soil compaction
  • Root damage

It's vital to assess storm-damaged trees promptly. Let our professional arborists evaluate the extent of the damage and determine if tree removal is necessary. With our help, you can take swift action after a storm to mitigate further safety risks on your property.

Why You Need to Address Tree Uprooting

Dealing with an uprooted tree presents serious risks to passersby and the surrounding environment. Trees often sit near essential sewer, utility, or water lines, making the removal process more complex. That’s why you need to address tree uprooting with the assistance of a professional.

When you partner with our arborists, we’ll ensure your safety and preserve your surrounding property. We’ll also remove the uprooted tree swiftly to prevent it from causing any further damage to its surroundings.

Leaning Tree Removal for Safety Preservation

Large, untrimmed branches or trees leaning dangerously are potential hazards, capable of causing significant harm or damage if they fall. That’s why leaning tree removal for safety preservation is essential. When you enlist our expertise, we promise prompt intervention that mitigates risks and protects your property. We’ll send an arborist to assess the situation and set up your area for removal.

How Tree Removal Works

Tree removal is a complex and potentially dangerous process that requires the expertise of licensed professionals. When you work with our industry leaders, our highly trained professionals will use the latest equipment and techniques to safely and efficiently remove trees of all sizes safely and efficiently and in all types of locations.

Before beginning the removal process, we thoroughly assess the tree and the surrounding area.

Some of the things we take into account during our assessment will include the following:

  • The size and condition of the tree
  • Any potential obstacles or hazards
  • The most appropriate method for removal
  • Responsible cleanup and disposal of unwanted lumber and branches

Once we have determined the best approach, our team will use our equipment to carefully cut and remove the tree in sections. We also take great care to avoid any damage to your surrounding property or vegetation and to minimize any disturbance to your neighborhood.

Consult with our experts today to explore affordable options tailored to your goals.

How Long Does It Take to Remove a Tree?

One of the most common questions we get asked is how long it takes to remove a tree. The answer varies based on a few factors.

For a standard tree removal of moderate to large size and accessibility, it typically takes anywhere from a few hours to a full day. However, larger trees located in challenging locations might require several days for safe and thorough extraction. Moreover, factors such as the tree’s height, width, health, proximity to structures or power lines, and the equipment needed can influence the timeline.

If you’re curious about timing, rest assured our experienced team thoroughly assesses each situation, providing an estimated timeframe that ensures efficiency and safety throughout the removal process.

Why Hiring Tree Removal Specialists Is Key to Your Safety

Trees are large perennial plants that require specialized care, especially during emergencies. That’s why hiring tree removal specialists is key to your safety. Our arborists bring a wealth of expertise, having undergone extensive training in assessing tree hazards and executing safe removal techniques. Our familiarity with various tree species and their growth patterns allows for precise and efficient removal.

Moreover, our effective removal processes encompass tree extraction and thorough cleanup, ensuring we leave your property clean and hazard-free.

Certified Tree Professionals Give Insight Into Detecting a Diseased Tree

Identifying signs of tree disease is critical for appropriate intervention.

Based on our knowledge of tree biology and experience with failing trees, we’ve put together a list of some indicators to help you determine if you have a diseased tree:

  • Leaf discoloration: Look for leaves that are yellowing, browning, or showing abnormal discoloration patterns, which may indicate nutrient deficiencies or fungal infections.
  • Leaf abnormalities: Check for deformed, curled, or misshapen leaves. They can be signs of insect infestation or viral diseases.
  • Leaf drop: Premature leaf drop, especially outside the normal seasonal patterns, can be a symptom of various tree diseases.
  • Dead branches: Dead or decaying branches within the tree canopy could signify fungal infections or other diseases.
  • Bark abnormalities: Inspect the tree's bark for peeling, cracking, or areas with unusual growths, like cankers or lesions, which can indicate disease or insect damage.
  • Fungal growth: Look for mushrooms or fungal brackets on the trunk or near the tree’s base. These may indicate internal decay or root rot.
  • Abnormal growth patterns: Examine the tree for stunted or excessive growth, including excessive sprouting or the development of galls or witches' brooms, which can be disease symptoms.
  • Infestation signs: Keep an eye out for pests, like borers, beetles, or caterpillars. They can contribute to tree decline and disease development.

Our Diseased Tree Removal Process That Preserves Surrounding Vegetation

As pioneers in the arborist industry, our diseased tree removal process is designed to preserve surrounding vegetation. We only use specialized, commercial-grade tools and equipment to ensure safe extraction while minimizing any impact on nearby plants.

Our process focuses on the tree’s removal and preventing any remnants or infected parts from affecting the surrounding greenery. We’ll thoroughly clean up before leaving, dispose of any fallen tree parts, and assume full responsibility for tree disposal at an appropriate dumping facility.

When Removing a Tree Makes Sense

Removing a tree may be necessary for several reasons, including:

  1. The tree is dead, diseased, or dying: A dead or diseased tree can pose a significant risk to people and property. Dead branches or limbs can fall off and cause damage to property or people, and the tree can fall unexpectedly.
  2. The tree is causing damage to property: Trees with invasive roots or branches can cause damage to structures or underground pipes. In such cases, removing the tree before it causes further damage is often best.
  3. The tree is blocking the view or sunlight: If the tree is obstructing the view from a property or blocking sunlight, removing it may be necessary.
  4. The tree is in the way of construction or development: When building a new structure or developing a property, the tree may need to be removed to make room for the construction.
  5. The tree is a safety hazard: If the tree is leaning dangerously, has a weak root system, or is located too close to power lines or other infrastructure, it may be a safety hazard that needs to be removed.

In general, removing a tree makes sense when it poses a significant risk to people and property or is necessary for development or construction.

Here's how we can help:

  1. Inspection and assessment: Our arborists will conduct a thorough inspection and assessment of the tree and the surrounding area. We will look for signs of damage or disease, evaluate the tree's lean, and determine the best approach to removal.
  2. Safety preparation: Before we begin the removal process, we will take all necessary safety precautions. This includes ensuring the area is clear of people and objects, setting up safety equipment, and evaluating the surrounding terrain.
  3. Tree felling: Depending on the size and location of the tree, we will either climb the tree and cut it down in sections or use specialized equipment to safely fell the tree. Our arborists will work in teams to carefully cut and remove the tree in sections, using ropes and pulleys to control the direction of the fall.
  4. Limbing and bucking: Once the tree is felled, our team will remove the branches and limbs using specialized equipment. The trunk of the tree will be cut into manageable sections, known as bucking, which can be easily transported from the site.
  5. Site cleanup: Our team will conduct a thorough site cleanup once the tree is removed. This includes removing all debris and branches, grinding the stump if necessary, and raking the area to ensure it's clean and safe.

Throughout the process, our arborists will use the latest safety equipment and techniques to minimize risks to people, property, and the surrounding environment. If you have a dangerous tree on your property, contact us today for a consultation and quote.

Specialized Tree Cutting

Mature and towering trees add a certain appeal to your property, but in the blink of an eye, storm damage, disease, and other issues can turn an old friend into a dangerous foe.

In some cases, specialized tree cutting may be necessary in cases where the tree is:

  • Overshadowing assets like your home, business, garage, driveway, or a neighboring property
  • Growing near other trees that you'd like to preserve
  • Threatening to intermingle with power lines and other wiring systems
  • Growing in a cultivated or well-landscaped area where felling the tree could cause damage to the landscape

Our rope and pulley system is a technique that solves problems with trees in tight or complex locations. It involves using ropes and pulleys to control the direction of the tree's fall and to prevent damage to surrounding structures and vegetation.

We use the rope and pulley system in situations where the tree is located near buildings, power lines, or other structures that need to be protected. We also use it when the tree is too large or too dangerous to fall using traditional techniques, such as the straight cut and pull method.

To use the rope and pulley system, our arborist will first climb the tree and attach a series of ropes to the tree's upper branches. These ropes are then threaded through pulleys and connected to an anchor point, such as another tree or a truck. By carefully controlling the tension on the ropes, we can direct the tree's fall in a precise direction, away from any structures or obstacles.

Please be aware that our rope and pulley system is a highly specialized technique that requires extensive training and experience to use safely and effectively. It should only be used by licensed and certified arborists with the necessary equipment and expertise to ensure a safe and successful felling.
