Tree Trimming Services

Having well-groomed trees in your yard can give you much-needed shade, and add a great deal of character to your yard. However, if the trees start to get out of control, they can cause a lot of damage to your property. One of the most common problems homeowners run into with trees is when they grow into power lines. This is extremely unsafe and needs to be taken care of as quickly as possible. Unless you have a great deal of training running a chainsaw and trimming trees, you should leave this type of job up to the professionals. Here are a few things that you can expect from a professional tree service:

Developing A Plan

One of the first things that a tree removal company is going to do is develop a plan of action. There is a lot of different variables that go into removing a tree. One of the first things they look at is if the tree needs to be completely removed, or if a trim will do the job. If the tree is unhealthy, or it will most likely cause the same problem in a few years the tree will most likely have to be removed completely. The company will develop a plan of action to remove the tree, and this can take up to a few hours to even a few days.


If the tree has grown into a power line, it is important to understand that the company is taking a very big risk cutting the tree. So, safety is always first in these instances. You can expect the company to take things very slow and start at the top of the tree. The tree trimming professional will use a lift to get up high into the tree. With each cut, the tree will be secured so no limbs fall and hit the power lines. Slowly the tree will be dismantled and trimmed until there is no longer a threat. 


If the tree was removed completely the company is gong to make sure that you never have the same problem, and will remove the tree stump. Often this is done by digging the tree out, or by digging into the tree and putting a wood eating chemical into the stump. If the tree was only trimmed, the company will likely put a strain on the tree to force it to grow away from the power line.
