Removing large established trees: Hard decision, but sometimes the right one.

As our name states, our constant goal is to protect and preserve the health of your trees so they can be enjoyed to their fullest. However, trees are living things and nothing is permanent. Sometimes we have to make the tough decision to take down a tree that might seem "normal" or healthy looking to the untrained eye. Perhaps the tree is of historical significance, as was the case with this 100 Year Old Red Oak on Swiss Avenue we had to remove this spring.

Removal of a 100 Year Old Red Oak

As our company name indicates, our first goal with any tree is to preserve it by improving it's overall health and vigor. But sometimes, we simply have to remove a tree for the safety of all involved. Trees are living things; they live and then they eventually die. They are not permanent fixtures. So while a 100 year old red oak may be historic, it may also be in serious decline. This was the case with just such a tree we recently had to take down in the History Swiss Avenue Distiric.

What does it take to remove a tree stump?

When you're unfamiliar with a specific type of work, it can be hard to know whether the prices you're being quoted are justified or not. We thought we'd show you a few photos of a recent job we were working on where were had to remove a stump. It's not easy! As you can see in the photo, This wasn't a very large tree in terms of circumference. Even so, it takes a lot of work to get an established stump completely removed in order to plant new tree or shrub specimens.
