Tree removal is an unfortunate, but very necessary part of arboriculture and one that Design Tree Maintenance executes professionally and safely. Our goal is, and has always been, to provide services that keep trees healthy, but there are instances when removal is the best alternative for the landscape and homeowner.
Tree removals are performed to eliminate dead and dying trees as well as those that have become hazardous. Here in Phoenix, many trees that grow rapidly are often planted too close to buildings or other trees without consideration of how large they will be just a few short years down the road. In these cases, removals can be useful in preventing foundation or slab damage, as well as eliminating competition for light and space so that the remaining plants are better able to grow and thrive. In some cases, trees may also be removed to allow for new construction, home additions and to provide clearances with those structures.
Tree removal is the most hazardous aspect of arboriculture. Often, tree workers must remove trees growing in confined spaces near houses, utility lines and other sensitive areas. Tree removal requires considerable expertise to successfully perform this task.
At Design Tree, our arborists are highly trained to work safely and efficiently in all tree removals. We provide thorough clean up of debris and strive to minimize the impact to surrounding vegetation.
As part of the tree removal process, the stump will typically be left as close to the ground as possible. If needed, grinding of the stump can be provided. Stump grinding can be challenging and often special machinery is required, but it may be necessary if the stump is a hazard in the landscape or simply an eyesore. Stump grinding by a professional is the easiest and safest way to handle this work, and Design Tree Maintenance has the equipment and expertise to complete the job in a safe, efficient manner.
