It is difficult to kill the root of many trees with just cutting the tree down. People try all kinds of home made formulas and buy millions of dollars of commercially manufactured root killers and the roots continue to produce new shoots. The best way to stop a trees root growth is with a specialized piece of equipment called a stump grinder that literally grinds the root into saw dust consistency. We can grind all sizes of tree stumps and make them disappear for you.

You will never see our pruners top a tree that is not a fruit tree of a nut tree. To top a tree is one of the worst and long-lasting things you can do to any tree. It causes damage to the hormonal balance of the tree that is irreparable. There are several rules a good pruner must follow to keep a tree healthy violating any one of which can cause the tree to be susceptible to disease and pathogenic invasion. After these rules are adhered to pruning is truly an "art form." To be good at making a tree look great after pruning you must understand the pathology of a tree as well as the principles of balance.

Safety is our first concern in tree removal, we can literally take down a 50,000 pound cottonwood between to buildings without ever scratching the paint on either. We first remove all the branches as the climber ascends and rope each branch to the ground for safe handling. Then we take of small sections of the main tree trunk and rope each of them to the ground.
