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.

Our Tools for Safe Tree Removal

Tree removal is necessary under circumstances such as: 

  • Trees that are overcrowding a lot or they are growing too close to other trees
  • Large limbs are in danger of falling onto homes or other structures
  • Trees that are growing into power lines
  • Disease has killed the tree and might spread to surrounding trees

When situations like these are present on a property it can be best to remove trees for safety reasons as well as for the health of the surrounding landscape. Tree removal can be a difficult and dangerous job so it takes the right equipment to safely accomplish it. At General Tree Service, a tree removal job can range from clear-cutting a new lot to prepare for construction to removing a large tree on a manicured lawn next to a nice house. 

The range of jobs that General Tree Service undertakes means that we have acquired all of the tools to safely do tree removals while disrupting as little of the surrounding environment as possible. To accomplish this we use: 

  • Lifts like cherry pickers and articulating lifts
  • Bucket trucks
  • All types of ropes and rigging for climbing
  • Safety equipment like hard hats, glasses, and gloves
  • Chain saws
  • Stump grinders
  • Shredders and dump trucks to haul away debris

When General Tree Service removes your trees, the job is guaranteed to be done safely and with as little impact as possible. 

When to Schedule Tree Pruning

A lot of misconceptions exist when it comes to tree pruning. Tree pruning is a practice that removes dead or diseased limbs from within a tree so they don’t become avenues for infections and infestations to spread and it can be done year-round. This method is called “crown cleaning.”

Other methods of tree pruning exist, like crown reduction and crown thinning, that are aimed at:

  • Increasing light penetration through the canopy
  • Allowing better air circulation to reduce moisture problems
  • Keeping branches clear of traffic below the tree
  • Reducing the overall size of the tree

The expert arborists at General Tree Service can help you decide what is best for your trees and what season is best to accomplish this. With help from our professionals, your trees can be more vigorous and vibrant than they’ve ever been. 

Benefits of Stump Removal

Stump removal is usually the final step in a tree removal. Often our customers will have trees removed by our teams or someone else only to leave the stump in the ground. Leaving a stump creates an eyesore because the stump will either die and rot away over the course of several years or it will try to regrow with weak and ugly growth. 

Instead of waiting for a stump to disappear naturally, stump grinding can immediately fix the problem. At General Tree Service, our stump grinders remove stumps in minutes and reduce them to a pile of beneficial mulch. Stumps are removed to below the level of the surrounding soil so the hole can be backfilled and the area immediately replanted with grass or trees. 

Arborists That Specialize in Tree Health

In a perfect world, trees would be able to take care of themselves by defending against fungus and insect infestations. Unfortunately, with stressors like human activity and weather events, trees are subject to suffering from poor health. To help trees along, professionals called “arborists” are trained to maximize tree health so they can live long and vigorous lives. 

Arborists are certified professionals that meet stringent requirements to use this title. Every arborist is certified by the International Society of Arboriculture to have:

  • Formal education in the field of horticulture or forestry
  • A minimum of 3 years of field experience
  • Passed a standardized international test
  • Ongoing education to keep up-to-date with developments in the industry

General Tree Service has multiple arborists on staff that are present when we perform services. This ensures that our customers always get the best care available for their trees. 

When to Call for Emergency Tree Service

Tree emergencies don’t happen on a convenient and predictable schedule. They can happen overnight or on long weekends because nature doesn't take days off. When tree emergencies happen, you need a reliable company that can respond quickly. General Tree Service is always on call on weekends to clean up from tree emergencies. 

Some of the reasons to call for emergency tree service are:

  • Limbs that have blown down or fallen onto structures
  • Trees or debris blocking roadways
  • Debris that is touching power lines or taken them down completely

Keep trees vibrant and healthy by giving them the highest standards of care. General Tree Service has the knowledge and tools to care for trees at any stage of their lives. Call (253) 844-5141 today to schedule a consultation with one of our certified arborists. 

We're here to answer your questions and help with your tree service needs.
