When We Recommend Tree Removal
We only recommend tree removals if necessary, as removing too many trees can impact the local ecosystem. As environmental stewards, our advice is always given with both your needs and the best interest of the natural world in mind. Other services, like pruning, may better solve the problem posed by a tree that appears hazardous. The city of Palo Alto recognized us for our dedication to tree preservation for a reason – we are committed to the well-being of your trees.
Over our three decades of trustworthy work in the Mid-Peninsula, we have developed robust relationships with local municipalities. This allows us to acquire permits with minimal hassle for you. Local officials know that we are fair and honest in our reports and consults, so they respect our removal recommendations.
The Benefit of Tree Removals
Removing a tree can have benefits. If a tree is dead or dying, it may become dangerous, requiring immediate removal. A tree that endangers property by leaning or that has branches threatening to fall will need to be dealt with, either via removal or other, less permanent means like pruning or cabling. Dead trees also have the potential to become fuel in a wildfire.
The removal of a tree with a disease may save other trees on your property from contracting the same ailment. While pruning may save a tree with evidence of an infestation, sometimes the best course of action is to remove it if the pest or disease has affected too much of the tree.
Routine & Emergency Tree Care
Tree removals may be either routine or emergency services. As part of our tree consultations, we will identify any trees on your property that are candidates for removal. If we get to know your trees over time, we can provide you with continued advice for tree care and maintenance, avoiding future removals.
Emergency tree removals often occur after storms, when trees are felled or shift in high winds or rain. Removal is one of the most common emergency tree services, especially if the tree in question poses a danger to people or property.
