Why work with a certified arborist?
An arborist is an individual who is trained in the art and science of planting, caring for, and maintaining trees, whereas a certified arborist is an individual who has achieved a level of knowledge through experience and by passing a comprehensive examination developed by some of the nation’s leading experts on tree care. They must also continue their education to maintain certification and are therefore more likely to be up to date on the latest arborculture techniques. Proper tree care is an investment that can lead to substantial returns. Well-cared-for trees are attractive and can add considerable value to your property. Poorly maintained trees can be a significant liability. Tree work should be done only by those trained and equipped to work safely in trees!

TAKEDOWNS + REMOVALS
Tree removal is a process that requires safe and careful planning as well as proper equipment. A tree may need to be removed when: the tree is considered dead and decay is present, previous storm damage, concern over liability issues, and construction/renovation. For tree removals, we offer wood chipping and custom saw milling (ask about these services!).
Decaying stumps are likely to attract insects (not fun for kids) and of course, they're an eyesore. Tree stump grinding is a common option with a tree removal.
