Safety is a priority during tree removal
Having any tree removed requires skill to make sure it’s done safely and without damage to your home, vehicles or other trees. It’s even more precarious when that tree is near powerlines, buildings or in tight quarters to other trees.
All these are reasons why you need to hire a professional for any tree removals on your Beaverton property.
General Tree has experienced crews who do this on a daily basis so no matter how complex your removal, they know the proper techniques to use and have the right equipment on hand. Safety devices are placed to control traffic and all crew wears the necessary head, eye and ear protection.
Climbers use safety lines when working above 15 feet and the ground crew helps when large limbs are lowered. Of course, all debris is removed once we’re done with the job.
What comes next? Stump removal
Once your tree has been taken down, grinding the stump will give you the most options for restoring your landscape. Stump removal will leave you with a flat area that you can cover with bark or rock (if in a landscaped area) or you can plant grass or flowers over it and no one will ever know that a tree used to be there.
Pruning is essential to healthy trees
Pruning your trees on a regular basis is necessary to keep them healthy and structurally sound. Of course, not all trees are the same so it’s important to have a trained expert do the pruning as damage can occur when improper cutting techniques are used.
Our arboricultural professionals follow the ANSI A300 standards approved by the TCIA (Tree Care Industry Association). So whether we’re doing hazard reduction to remove dead or diseased branches or maintenance pruning for better growth and structure, we’ll have a clear objective for each tree.
Pruning includes many types such as thinning the canopy to improve air movement or crown restoration after a storm has caused significant damage. Pruning can be done at most any time of the year, in fact our motto is “It’s always a good time to prune.”
Pruning trees has many benefits
- Lowers humidity to help prevent fungal infections
- Allows more air to flow through canopy
- Increases light penetration
- Reduces weight
- Keep trees healthy and looking great
Specialty pruning of trees and shrubs
Our tree experts, which includes certified arborists and tree consultants, offer all types of specialty pruning to improve the health, structure and aesthetics of your trees and shrubs.
From detail pruning of your yard’s most valued trees to production fruit tree pruning so your trees bear more fruit to vista pruning for a better view, we’ve got you covered.
