Tree Trimming and Removal

Healthy trees offer cooling shade, prevent erosion, absorb pollutants, promote increased diversity of plant and animal life, and increase property values.  We can help maintain your trees by selective pruning to remove weak or crowded branching structures and dead limbs.  Trimming may also include removal of lower branches to increase clearance for pedestrian safety and visibility.  At times removal of aged or unwanted trees is warranted.  We can help with tree removal along with the stump grinding, soil work, and seeding or landscaping necessary to fully repurpose your site.
