Tree Services – Trimming – Pruning – Removal – Storm Cleanup
When a tree threatens the safety of life and property, it’s important to have it removed right away. While trees are a desirable source of shade and appeal, they can also threaten the foundation of your home, neighborhood utilities and your loved ones. Our reliable and safety-minded technicians know how to safely restore your property.
The most frequent reason for emergency tree removal is a wind storm or a tornado. The property damage can be extensive, and more than 200 people are killed by falling trunks and branches every year in the United States. Although many factors contribute to a tree’s weight, it’s not unusual for one to reach 10,000 lbs. That is potentially a lot of damage.
Leave it to a Professional
If a storm strikes, don’t try to remove dead trees and branches yourself, and don’t use a chainsaw if you don’t know how.
You can get pinned underneath a trunk or large branch if it suddenly dislodges.
After a tornado, limbs get twisted together, created a tremendous amount of torque that unwinds like a spring. It can kick a saw right out of your hands.
If you try to move a tree that is anywhere near a power line, it can move and cause electrocution.

Removing Living Trees
For all the benefits trees provide, there are situations in which healthy ones need to be cut down quickly.
A tree that gets too close to power lines can disrupt electricity if the wind plays havoc with branches. It can even start a fire. In many cases, the tree’s crown can be cut back periodically. But if maintenance become too much or the tree grows into a real threat, it may have to be removed.
If a large specimen is too close to water and sewer pipes, large roots can split them at the seams. This allows smaller roots to grow inside the lines and clog your plumbing. Sometimes the pipes can be rerouted and the roots cut, but this leaves the tree damaged. It becomes a hazard, and emergency removal is the best solution. In some communities, it is mandated in these situations.
Emergency tree removal may be necessary when large roots undermine your home’s foundation. Don’t underestimate their strength: over time, they can cause cracks to form in masonry and cement, bring floors and walls out of plumb, and cause your basement walls to bow. These are very expensive fixes and insurance may not cover it.
Removing Dead Trees
Dead specimens can become a hazard if any stress is placed on them. Wind can snap off brittle branches or push the tree over, roots and all. Insects or rot can further weaken its hold in the ground. If the trunk leans too much, it needs to be taken out as soon as possible. Don’t wait for the next storm to strike and create a disaster. Call for a free evaluation and removal.
