Besides a tree being dead, there is a basic growth pattern to a tree. We all know trees require light to grow, soil and water. You as a homeowner can start by walking around your house, taking a look at the trees closest to the house. You should notice that most of the limbs on the inside of the tree are growing toward the house. Walk up to the base of the tree and look up. If the actual trunk of the tree is leaning toward the house as well, the severity of that lean can help determine the possibility of that tree falling on your house. If the tree is not leaning to far towards the house, it should be either crotch dropped (topping technique), lower limb weight reduction or removed if necessary. We believe that saving a tree is always the first option, but if the directional lean of the trunk and limbs are too close, then sometimes it is best to remove it, for your safety. Another thing you can do is walk around the base of the tree, look for mushrooms growing on the side, black carpenter ants and any obstacles (sidewalks, driveway, etc) that could have altered the natural growth pattern of the roots. This can be a determining factor in the safety of the tree. If you, as a homeowner, feel like your trees may fall into one of these categories, then call us and a member of our trained specialists will come out, free of charge, and help you with a treatment or removal plan that best insures the safety of you and your family.

Working with this company was great from beginning to end. I had four 100+ foot pines that were struck and killed by lightening. One was especially precarious as it was leaning on the others, to fall at any moment. I was extremely pleased with the price, work and clean up and especially being able to rest through the night again which is priceless. All around it was a great experience. Would recommend them to my mother, so recommending them to a stranger is a no-brainer.
