Tree Pruning

Many times the solution our customers need is judicious pruning.

Our arborists have mastered making proper pruning cuts and enjoy the delicate and important work of tree pruning.

Tree Cabling and Bracing

We are equipped to cable and brace trees as appropriate and utilize the best cabling systems in the industry to maximize the effectiveness of installed tree supports and minimize damage inflicted during the cabling and bracing process. We recommend re-inspection of your cabling systems on a three year interval and can inspect or replace cabling on older systems as needed.

Stump Grinding

We’re a one stop shop when it comes to all of your tree needs. We have the tools necessary to complete every job start to finish all the way down to the stump. Many of our customers don’t want to look at stumps in their yard or wait for them to rot naturally. We can grind both small and large stumps and can even do light site work such as removal of the grindings, bringing in fill, and seeding the ground out area. Most customers choose the “grind and go” option where we grind the stumps and leave the grindings, as the grindings are decent mulch in a garden or a good substrate for things like raspberries and blackberries.
