Frequently Asked questions

Can I have Cut Wood or Chips?

Yes! When removing trees or branches, we will be happy to cut easy-to-handle sized logs for you, as well as give you wood chips for your garden, if you’d like. Be sure to let us know before we get started!

Pruning is part of the general maintenance of your tree. Dead branches in trees are an access point for diseases and insects which can harm or kill the tree. Dead branches can also fall on people underneath. Crossing branches rub together, creating a wound, which is another potential access point for diseases and insects. Pruning can improve the structure of the tree.
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. Pruning or removing trees, especially large trees, can be dangerous work. Tree work should be done only by those trained and equipped to work safely in trees.
Yes and no, we do prune year-round. In summer (the growing season of a tree), it is easiest to evaluate the health of the tree and do minor trimming or thinning. However, during November through March (a tree’s dormant stage), it is the best time for the health of a tree to do heavier pruning. Some species like Elm Trees can’t be thinned during the heat of summer.
There is no need for homeowners to be present when we perform the work. We will take every measure to protect your property, leaving it better than we found it with cleanup and debris removal. That’s a promise.
It varies depending on the job being completed. Most jobs can be completed within one day. However, due to weather, size of job, or when we arrive to complete the job, it can take longer.
Removal would likely be required if the tree is a hazard – persons or property would be in danger if it falls or limbs disengage – and it has been determined it is damaged or diseased beyond repair. Pruning, fertilization, and watering often improve the health of a tree and reduce the need for removal.
There is always reason for concern, but depending on location, size, and spread of disease, it is ultimately on a case-by-case basis. If you notice a hole/cavity, contact us for an arborist consultation.
