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.

Dangers of Tree Removal

Tree removal is not a DIY job or a task that should be left for unqualified individuals to attempt. Removing trees involves working with power tools and dropping heavy limbs with control and accuracy in tight environments. Additionally, tree removal is a dangerous job because someone could get hurt or your property could be damaged. 

To safely and effectively accomplish tree removals, the experts at General Tree Service use the latest techniques and equipment. Some of our specialized equipment are:

  • Powerful chainsaws and limb saws
  • Rigging devices and ropes
  • Climbing equipment
  • Lifts
  • Truck for debris removal
  • Stump grinders

Finally, certified arborists are insured against injury and property damage. When you hire General Tree Service, your property is protected against damage that our teams may cause. Not only do we have the training to reduce the likelihood of problems, we are also able to remediate any problems that may arise. 

Benefits of Tree Pruning

Homeowners understand that everything in a home needs maintenance from time to time. Whether it’s the HVAC system or the plumbing, giving it routine attention prevents bigger problems down the road. The same is true with the trees on your landscape. Environmental stressors like drought or high winds stack up over time and cause trees to grow in ways that aren’t optimal. Luckily, most of the cumulative damage can be reversed with good tree care practices. One of the skills that an arborist uses to restore health to a tree is tree pruning. 

Tree pruning is the practice of maintaining a tree by removing dead or diseased limbs and gently influencing its growth patterns. By removing dead and diseased limbs, our experts keep the tree healthy. With gentle pruning we allow more sunlight to get through the canopy of trees and better air circulation within the tree. Give your trees the best standards of care by scheduling General Tree Service to prune trees on your property every year. 

Restore the Landscape with Stump Removal

One of the major problems with removing a tree is the stump that remains. Stumps take a long time to rot away when they aren’t dealt with appropriately. All that time they are an obstacle and an ugly eyesore. Instead of leaving stumps to mow around for years, schedule stump grinding from General Tree Service. 

Stump grinding is the superior method of stump removal because it completely removes the stump and exposed roots below the surrounding grade. After the stump is removed, homeowners can: 

  • Reseed the area with grass seed to expand and restore the lawn
  • Plant ornamentals 
  • Add a flowerbed
  • Replace the tree with an appropriate species 

Tree Health Practices Used by Our Arborists

An arborist is more than someone who operates a tree service. The term “arborist” is an industry term that means the bearer of that title is a tree care professional. To be called an arborist, a candidate must have years of academic training as well as years of field experience. The International Society of Arboriculture then tests the candidate’s knowledge before awarding the title of “arborist.” 

Because of their training and experience, an arborist is an expert on all things tree-related. Not only will they be experts in the trees in their region, but they will also even have extensive knowledge of trees they don’t routinely encounter. To keep all of these trees healthy, they have a few proven strategies. Some of the ways they enhance tree health are:

  • Soil tests and management
  • Soil amendments and fertilization techniques
  • Tree trimming
  • Tree pruning
  • Pest identification including anthracnose and leaf spot fungus

Responding to a Tree Emergency

Tree emergencies are inherently dangerous situations. When trees drop limbs on homes and power lines or they topple over, they can be very unpredictable. Luckily, you don’t have to deal with these dangerous situations. Instead, call a company that is always ready to respond to tree emergencies. 

At General Tree Service, our crews are always on call to respond to tree emergencies. We have extensive experience working with power line crews and insurance companies so we can help you get things back under control quickly. When you see a tree emergency, don’t take any risks. Simply call the crews at General Tree Service and let us do the rest.
