We have just had two maples removed by General Tree and they did a fantastic job. Both trees were diseased and rotting and they felled them safely and quickly. Excellent cleanup and communications.
The crew was on the job as promised and cleaned up each day as if they’d never been there. All the crew were courteous and friendly to onlookers.

Have used them before and will use them again.

Tools for Tree Removal

When trees die or grow too close to a home or utility easement, they need to be removed safely. It may not seem like it from the ground but trees are massive organisms that require a lot of work to remove without causing extra problems. To accomplish safe tree removals, General Tree Service has all of the tools necessary to get the job done. Some of the tools that we use to remove trees from around homes and power lines are:

  • Chainsaws and pole saws
  • Rigging and ropes to safely lower branches
  • Climbing ropes and harness for tree climbers’ safety
  • Trucks to haul away debris
  • Stump grinders to remove leftover stumps
  • Lifts and bucket trucks to safely access upper branches

Removing a tree from a property is a dangerous job that requires skills and experience. At General Tree Service, we’ve been passing down the skills to get tree removals done safely for nearly a century. Protect your property by working with the safest tree service in the area. 

When is Tree Pruning Necessary?

One of the best ways to invest in trees and shrubs that are already present on the property is to make sure they stay looking great and healthy. Tree pruning can accomplish both of these goals. Pruning is a process that removes dead or unwanted growth or encourages the tree to grow in a certain shape. Some of the methods of tree pruning are: 

  • Lift Pruning: Trees commonly grow low branches that reduce access to the trunk and make mowing around them a hassle. During lift pruning, lower branches are removed.
  • Crown Thinning: Improves the health of the tree by reducing the total mass of the canopy allowing for better air movement and light penetration. It also reduces the total weight. 
  • Crown Reduction: Instead of removing encroaching trees, crown reduction prunes them back to a safer size. When done properly, limbs won’t intrude again for a few years. 
  • Crown Cleaning: Purges the tree of dead or diseased growth reducing the likelihood that the disease will spread or wood-eating insects will invade. 

Pruning can be a concern when done by untrained individuals. However, the experts at General Tree Service know exactly how to prune a tree so that it stays healthy and vigorous. 

Benefits of Stump Removal

When trees are removed, the last vestige of the tree is a stump that can stick up several feet above the surrounding soil. When stumps remain after a tree or shrub removal, nature goes to work breaking down the stump. It does this by allowing wood-eating insects and fungus to degrade the stump in a process that can take years. Removing stumps immediately prevents these pesky organisms from taking up residence near your home or business. 

The best way to remove stumps is to have General Tree Service perform a process called “stump grinding.” Stump grinding uses powerful machinery with a large blade to remove stumps and shallow roots. The result is a hole that is filled with mulch that can be easily incorporated back into the surrounding landscape. With stump grinding services, owners won’t have to endanger their homes or look at an unsightly stump for years.

Some of the strategies that our arborists may use to save trees or enhance the health and appeal of trees are:

  • Precise fertilization
  • Tree trimming and pruning
  • Mulching
  • Disease identification including anthracnose and leaf spot

Emergency Tree Service

A tree service is never truly a full-service tree company if they don’t protect their customers all the time. At General Tree Service, we understand that a 40-hour week isn’t enough to completely cover our customers. That’s why we have crews that are on call after hours to respond to emergencies. 

Some of the reasons you may need emergency tree service are:

  • Weather-related problems including fallen branches
  • Limbs that have damaged a home
  • Toppled trees
  • Downed power lines
  • Debris that is blocking a roadway

By partnering with our dedicated crews, our customers are never alone. Call us when disaster strikes and we can help get things back on the right track.
