Tree Removal & Stump Grinding
Most people (including us!) prefer not to cut down trees unless it’s really necessary.
Here are some of the situations in which tree removal is the only reasonable option.
Although tree removal is a last resort, there are circumstances when it’s necessary. Our arborists can help you decide if a tree can be saved or whether it should be cut down.
HOW ARBOR EXPERTS REMOVES TREES
Tree removal, particularly in tight spaces or near structures (such as your home), is definitely not a DIY job. It requires specialized equipment, including safety equipment, and extensive skills and training to do it efficiently, properly and safely.
Here at Arbor Experts we take pride in safely removing trees from nearly any landscape. We take great care to make sure there is no damage done to property or structures and our experienced tree care professionals will be onsite to make sure all of our staff are following the highest safety standards.
We cut trees as close to the ground as possible without damaging our equipment or your property – that’s usually within 4 inches of the ground.
DOES TREE REMOVAL INCLUDE GRINDING THE STUMP?
If you’d like the tree stump to be removed entirely, we’re happy to grind the stump away. We're usually able to grind down about 8 to 12 inches below the soil level which means that we'll get most of the stump but not necessarily all. Still, you won't have any unsightly stumps showing above ground level.
We can also grind out surface roots, although that's not normally part of "stump grinding" so must be contracted separately.
Please note that stump and/or surface root grinding is an additional charge that will be listed separately on the proposal.
After grinding the stump, we fill the hole with wood chips from the ground out stump (and any soil that might be mixed in with the chips) to the level of the surrounding ground. We can then haul away any excess wood chips or leave them in a pile for you to use in your garden.
If you'd prefer to fill the hole with top soil and cover it with grass seed, please discuss that with one of our Arborists. It's not a standard part of stump removal so there's an extra charge. It may be better for you to have your landscaper do this.
WHEN TO REMOVE TREES
We typically haul away all wood and brush from the job site and bring it to a local processor who recycles it by grinding it into mulch. If you prefer, we can leave wood from the removed tree at your property. If you’d like us to cut and stack the wood, there is an additional charge for this service.
Trees can be removed at any time of year, especially if they've become a potential safety hazard.
Winter, particularly when the ground is frozen, is an especially good time of year for tree removal. It allows us to access the tree using heavy equipment without damaging your lawn, and tree limbs can be dropped without leaving deep holes in the ground.
EMERGENCY TREE SERVICE
Storms can cause branches or entire trees to fall, often landing on other trees, homes and other structures, or cars.
Storm-damaged and fallen trees are incredibly heavy and unstable, and they can be dangerous to remove or trim. Don’t try to do this yourself! Call in a Certified Arborist who can do the job safely while reducing further risk of damage to your property.
What Our Customers Say
"We recently had several trees removed and others pruned. The team was top-notch! Courteous, respectful, efficient. We've used other tree services in the past - Arbor-Experts is by far the best. They were professional in treating our home with the utmost care. All debris was cleaned and removed. I will definitely use them again and highly recommend them."
Removal & Pruning
We had to have a couple trees taken out and some stumps ground (that another tree service never came back to take care of). The guys showed up on time, were very professional, and got the job done right. They even let our 5-year old grandson wear a hard hat and "help" clean up.
