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.

Reasons Tree Removal is Necessary

While the crews at General Tree Service are committed to tree health, we are also committed to safety for our customers and their property. One of the aspects of tree care that is necessary is safe and skilled tree removal and the crews at General Tree Service are the most qualified in the tree care industry. 

Some of the reasons that our customers call on us to remove their trees are:

  • The tree is diseased and may spread the disease to nearby trees
  • Trees are already dead and falling limbs could endanger family or customers
  • Roots are causing foundation problems
  • Large limbs are encroaching on rooflines
  • Trees are growing into power lines

When General Tree Service removes a tree the job is guaranteed to be safe from start to finish. Tree removal can be a dangerous job but with the right training and equipment, our crews can accomplish it with no trouble. 

Reasons to Prune Trees

To cultivate beautiful and healthy trees, they need attention from time to time. Think of it as tree maintenance. Fertilization and mulching can go a long way towards preventing nutritional deficiencies and mitigating stress from the weather but pruning can really make a tree a showstopper. 

Tree pruning serves several functions, including:

  • Encouraging stronger blooming and fruiting. This in turn attracts bees and butterflies and provides a bigger harvest from fruit and nut trees. 
  • Removing dead limbs that are ugly and function as open wounds in a tree inviting in insects and fungus. 
  • Keeping oversized trees under control so they don’t interfere with structures and need to be removed. 
  • Making trees safer by removing unnecessary extra weight and weak growth that is likely to break. 

General Tree Service has crews ready to prune trees year-round. Led by a team of skilled arborists, our crews can help your trees last longer and stay healthy. 

Stump Removal with Stump Grinding

Once a tree is removed the root system will still be alive. Waiting on the root system to die and the stump to rot away can be a really long wait. Additionally, living stumps are ugly and they will likely continue to send up ugly growth that will need to be continuously dealt with. 

Instead of waiting out a stump, a stump grinding service from General Tree Service can help. Stump grinding is a process that uses a powerful machine to remove a stump below the level of the ground so it can’t be seen. 

Stump grinding only takes a few minutes per stump instead of several years. By the end of the season, the area will be completely healed and ready for new plants to thrive in the stump’s place. 

Experts in Tree Health

What sets apart General Tree Service from other tree and landscaping companies is our qualifications. Our experienced teams are run by certified arborists, which means you’re getting the best service available. A certified arborist has met stringent requirements to bear the title. Among these are:

  • Degree in horticulture, forestry, or an acceptable equivalent
  • A minimum of 3 years in the field working in the tree service industry
  • A passing grade on an international proficiency test administered by the ISA

Because of these qualifications, our customers know that they are getting the best help for their trees and shrubs. Whether they are suffering from a pest issue or they are showing signs of decline, our experts can put together a plan to save the tree and make it healthier than ever.
