Why Hire an Expert?

Tree removal is a dangerous job that requires experience and proper safety equipment to avoid major accidents and injuries. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), over 100 fatalities occur each year due to falling trees and branches. While this statistic measures accidental tree falls, selective removal is the same in terms of danger and potential injury.

Our team follows strict safety procedures and wears the necessary personal protective equipment (PPE) on every job, big or small. When we do full removal, we make specific cuts to ensure the trees fall exactly where we want them to. But, there are no guarantees, that’s why it’s vital to leave this to the professionals who have extensive experience and training.

Our Removal Process


Thoroughly inspect for areas of decay or rot and whether it’s leaning to identify the best fall direction.

Clear the Area

Remove all objects from the area by estimating the tree’s height and full width.

Choose Escape Routes

Should an accident occur or the tree does not fall in the exact planned direction, it’s important to have escape routes set in place and cleared of any obstacles.

Make the Undercut

The first cut is the undercut. We make a 45-degree “V” cut on the side of the trunk that’s facing the fall direction. This cut goes approximately a quarter of the trunk’s diameter deep.

Make the Backcut

Next, is the back cut. We cut a couple of inches above the undercut on the opposite side of the trunk and go all the way through to make this cut.


Stand back!

Post-fell Steps

Depending on what you want to do with the wood, we will cut it and trim off branches and leaves.

Trimming & Pruning


Trimming contributes to healthy growth and improves trees’ appearance. We use a variety of saws, loppers, and shears for this job.


Pruning also improves trees’ health and safety. It involves eliminating unnecessary or dead branches and aids with proper growth.

Storm Damage Restoration

When a storm hits, don’t wait to call the professionals. Storm damage restoration can be a dangerous job and requires experience and proper training. We take care of damage from blizzards, heavy rain showers, severe thunderstorms, intense winds, and more. Our team will get your neighborhood back to a safe condition in no time.
