Tree Removal

As licensed arborists in Connecticut we love trees and tree removal is our last resort. However, sometimes it’s necessary or desirable to have trees removed for different reasons including:

  • clearing for a structure
  • yard expansion
  • creating a view
  • letting in more sunlight
  • sick, dying or hazardous tree
  • storm damage
  • selective thinning

Emergency Tree Removal Due to Storm Damage

Removal of a tree may be required as a result of winter storms, hurricanes and other high wind situations. Trees can sustain serious damage from storms and cause hazardous conditions in and of themselves as well as to homes and other nearby structures. If not completely destroyed, affected limbs may just need some tree pruning to remove the damaged sections.

Large Trees Removed with Climber or Crane

When trees get too large they may need to be removed to protect nearby homes and other buildings. We can carry away trimmings by hand, use a zip-line or machinery, and we sometimes utilize a crane to remove unwanted trees.
