My favorite tree service company is, hands down, Tolt Tree Care! I can’t speak highly enough of the professionalism, honesty and integrity. I find that they are very conservative with their tree removal suggestions, they are a very nice crew to work with and really clean up after they do their work. I am adding the picture below because of the educational efforts they also assist with. In fact, in their recent tree removal work near my home, they placed a similar log next to the road so passers by could see the unseen and damaging effects of fungus on a tree which could cause a very unexpected sudden loss of a normal looking tree. Contact them for assistance and diagnosis of potential diseases in trees around your home before the big winds of winter are upon us!
The following is some great information from their website:
“Nobody likes to remove trees, but there are times when it’s the right thing to do. Some trees are hazardous and need to be removed to protect the property and people around the tree. Sometimes trees, because of their condition, pose a danger to homes and areas of high use, like driveways, parking lots, sidewalks, and walking trails. Tree roots can sometimes cause trip hazards, damage building foundations, and driveways, or damage utilities like sewer or septic lines. Moisture dripping from the canopy of a tree growing too close above your house can damage your roof over time and provide a convenient “on-ramp” for pesky rodents.
Trees may become hazardous because of disease, or damage from wind, lightning, or pests. Sometimes trees have to be removed simply because they’ve outgrown their space. Many times the wrong species or too many trees are planted too close to the home or building. Tree removal may also need to be done for aesthetic purposes or to accommodate a new landscaping plan.
We have a lot of experience performing close quarters tree removals that require careful planning, technical rigging, safe cutting, and proper disposal. Whatever your reasons for removing a tree, we will consult with you and make specific recommendations that take multiple factors into consideration, such as safety, health, and beauty.”
