Services


  • Chipping 

​​      Benefits to chipping debris:

      - chips can be hauled away more efficiently then

         multiple loads of limbs to the landfill

      - chips can be used for other purposes such as

         mulch and pathways

      - burning debris is often times prohibited and can

         cause strained relations with your neighbors

      - removing debris reduces 'fuel loading' and can

         help maintain defensible space

​​

  • Removal of trees and shrubs

   Reasons for removal:

​       - to create defensible space

       - trees or shrubs are placed inappropriately

       - the tree is a safety risk

​       - the tree is diseased

       - the tree is damaged beyond repair

       - aesthetics

       - trees and/or shrubs are blocking a desired view


  • Pruning of trees and shrubs

   Pruning objectives:

       - reducing the potential for tree or branch failure

​       - removal of dead branches

       - providing clearance

       - reducing shade and wind resistance

       - maintaining health

       - improving a desired view

       - improving aesthetics

       - influencing flower or fruit production

  • Stump grinding

    Reasons for grinding out stumps:

        - stumps can be unsightly

​        - stumps can take several decades to decompose on their own

​        - the space a stump occupies is unusable space

​        - some trees can continue to sprout new growth from the stump

​        - your property will look much cleaner and nicer without stumps


  • Fuels reduction for fire prevention and defensible space

     Some ways to create defensible space:

        - create a 'fire-free' area within 5 feet of the home and other structures

​        - remove dead vegetation

        - limb trees up 6 to 10 feet from the ground

​        - space conifer trees 30 feet between crowns, if this cannot be achieved then reduce the density of tall trees so

            canopies are not touching

        - remove limbs that overhang home or other structures

​        - remove smaller conifers that are growing between taller trees

        - remove heavy accumulation of woody debris

​        - encourage a mixture of deciduous and coniferous trees

        - make sure shrubs are appropriately placed and spaced

​        - create 'fuel breaks' like driveways, gravel walkways, and lawns
