We would like to thank you and your crew for the excellent job you did pruning the red maples, thinning and shaping the magnolia, thinning the plum trees, doing the ornamental prune on the lace leaf maple and removing the dead aspen in our yard.

We are so happy with the results. Your crew was professional, efficient and friendly. Falling a tree is an art and they went above and beyond in falling the aspen in one piece, as we requested

Our interaction with you couldn’t have been better. Your knowledge and professional manner really impressed us and made us confident in choosing General Tree Service to do this work for us.

Certified Services from Arborists

The title of “Master Arborist” from the International Society of Arboriculture is the highest designation a person can have as a tree service professional. Less than 2% of currently certified arborists hold this designation. In addition to a degree in a field related to tree service and at least 3 years of experience working in the field of tree service, a master arborist must abide by a code of ethics and take a rigorous exam. At General Tree Service, we have a master arborist on staff as well as multiple certified arborists.

The job of an arborist is to manage all aspects of tree care. Not only are they in charge of the safe removal of trees from difficult spaces, but they also are educated in tree health, trimming, pruning, disease treatment, fertilization, and risk assessments. While many people profess to know about these things, only arborists are qualified and trained to deal with them.

We are Tree Risk Assessment Qualified

One of the duties of an ISA certified arborist is to perform tree risk assessments. A tree risk assessment is performed to let home and business owners know about the risks that their trees may pose to the safety of visitors and their property.

An arborist is uniquely qualified to carry this out because of their training. An arborist will be able to notice if trees aren’t healthy, if they are encroaching on structures or if they are unbalanced and prone to toppling over.

By getting a tree risk assessment, you can have the peace of mind that your trees are not a liability or safety hazard.

Tree Removal and Pruning by Experts

Our tree removal and pruning crews have years of experience with all types of removals and pruning. From taking down giant sequoias and conifers near power lines to pruning all the trees on an acreage, we arrive on time with the proper tools and equipment to get the job done.

Always working with safety in mind, strict protocols are followed from start to finish. Our goal is for the process to be as stress-free as possible for you, which is why we provide written estimates before work is started and clean up the area when finished.

When it comes to pruning or trimming your trees, following the proper procedure is key to protecting your trees. Trees that aren’t properly trimmed are more prone to disease and dangerous imbalances that can be detrimental down the road.

At General Tree Services, our tree pruning crews are trained with the latest information to keep your trees thriving. Once you order tree trimming services, you can expect your trees to look beautiful, grow healthier, flower more abundantly, and produce more fruit.

Pruning is an integral part of a tree’s health. If it’s been a while since you’ve had your trees pruned, call today to schedule a visit.

Finish the Job with Stump Grinding

No tree removal is complete without dealing with the stump that is left over. At General Tree Service, we provide all services necessary to complete tree removals from start to finish. Once the tree is gone and debris is removed, it’s time to have the stump removed.

We use the latest equipment to perform stump grinding so that you can immediately begin to integrate the area back into your landscape. Our stump grinding services remove the remainder of the tree to below the surrounding dirt. This means that you can replant the area immediately with a new tree or landscaping.

Stump removal helps protect your home or business because it removes habitat for fungus and insects that feed on rotting wood. Since most structures in the area tend to be wood-framed, keeping these organisms away from your property prevents them from spreading to the structure of your home or business.

Preventative Plant Health Care

When your trees, shrubs, and plants are healthy, their natural defenses are able to fight off insects and diseases. Plus, it's usually less expensive to prevent problems rather than deal with them after the fact when treatment may not be as successful.This is why our plant health care programs are of great value. Consisting of weekly or monthly visits, our experts are trained to recognize early signs of disease and insect infestations. A customized treatment program is developed for your landscaping and applications are only done when needed.

Some of the plant health services we offer include:

  •  Soil management
  • Plant diagnosis
  • Fertilization
  • Disease identification

We use an integrated approach to strengthen a plant’s health to protect against disease and insect infestation. Some of the treatments we specialize in are:

  • Care for Dogwood Anthracnose
  • Elm tree protection for Elm bark beetle
  • Birch tree treatment for Bronze Birch Borer
  • Leaf spot control for ash, willow, and sycamore trees
  • Home fruit tree orchard programs
  • Rhododendron and Azalea protection from Azalea Lace Bug
