Punctual and honest! We had GTS come out for a quote on a few trees that looked like they might need some attention and Kevin kept it real with us, didn’t try to sell us on work that didn’t need to be completed.

Avoid Stress With Professional Tree Removal Services

Tree removal is a dangerous job that gets even more complicated when the tree is in close proximity to man-made structures. When you call the experts at General Tree Service, we’ll arrive at your Hillsboro home or business with the proper equipment and tools to take down your tree safely while you relax. Not only will we remove the tree, but we will also haul off all associated debris and remove the stump. Once we’re done, the area where the tree once stood will be ready for replanting with a new tree, ornamentals, or grass.

After your tree removal is complete, be sure to consult with our experts about what to plant in place of the old tree. Many times, customers will want to plant another tree in its place. Since trees are such long-lived organisms, it is important to consider the suitability of a tree to a certain spot to give it the best chance to thrive. Our training as arborists can help you decide what new tree or plant will be best in the location of the tree that was removed.

Plant Health Care Is Cost-Effective

Since healthy plants are stronger and better able to fight off damaging insects and diseases, we believe it’s smart to focus on plant health care. Our training in horticulture and arboriculture gives us a passion for helping plants thrive. An ounce of prevention goes a long way in keeping your plants healthy.

By allowing our landscape professionals to oversee planting, fertilization, pruning, soil management, and mulching your plants will be healthy enough to protect themselves.

Effective Insect and Disease Treatment

Insect infestation and disease can ravage plants. Our experience gives us the knowledge to treat active infestations that could potentially save you trees and shrubs.

Our plant experts will tailor a program specifically for your landscaping. The following are part of our ornamental insect and disease control programs.

  • Care for Dogwood Anthracnose
  • Rhododendron & Azalea protection from Azalea Lace Bug
  • Elm tree protection for Elm bark beetles
  • Leaf spot control for ash, willow & sycamore trees

Tree Trimming and Pruning

Improper pruning techniques can devastate trees and shrubs and cause lasting problems. That’s why our crews always follow ANSI A300 standards approved by the TCIA. Pruning keeps trees healthy by promoting strong structure. Strong trees help minimize the risk of damage by removing dead, diseased, or weak branches prone to breaking.

Some of the goals of pruning or trimming trees are:

  • Thinning inner growth to allow better light penetration and air circulation
  • Reducing the height of a tree or shrub to give clearance for a structure
  • Removing dead or diseased branches to protect the tree from further damage
  • Balance the tree so it is less likely to uproot and fall over
  • Increased fruit or flowering production in ornamentals, fruit trees, and nut trees

At General Tree Service, we love helping our customers enjoy their trees. Part of that means pruning and trimming trees for their health. If you have concerns about a tree or you know it needs pruning, don’t leave the job to amateurs. Call the professionals at General Tree Service today.

Stump Grinding

Removing stumps after a tree has fallen or been removed is an important part of the job. A leftover stump is an obstacle that will have to be dealt with for years to come. Don’t let an existing stump become a hassle to hide or mow around. Get it removed with stump grinding services from General Tree Service.

Stump grinding is a process that uses a special machine to reduce a stump and most of the subterranean root structure to wood chips. A large blade is lowered onto the stump, grinding it into pieces. The whole process is quick and easy. Once we’re done, new plants can be planted in place of the stump so that you can get your landscape looking good once again.

Why You Might Need Emergency Tree Service

Trees are beautiful assets to have on your property. But, sometimes they can pose hazards to structures. Whether they be near power lines, homes, or businesses, falling trees can do lots of damage and endanger your family or customers.

Some instances where emergency tree service may be required are:

  • Large limbs or trees have fallen on a home or business
  • Tree debris is blocking a roadway
  • Trees are encroaching or have damaged power lines
  • Winds have uprooted a tree and pushed it towards structures

All of these instances require immediate attention to restore safety to the area. At General Tree Service, we keep crews on call at all hours to respond to tree emergencies. Whenever you encounter an emergency, get to safety, and give us a call. We will respond immediately to eliminate the threat.
