Tree Removal Services
For many of our Longmont customers, sometimes all of our efforts fail to save a tree and therefore we need to resort to tree removal. Here’s a couple of reasons why:
- The tree is a safety hazard. Meaning, it has a structural defect that makes it likely to fall and it’s beyond the point of saving. Often this has occurred after we’ve tried our best efforts to save the tree. When the hazardous tree is near properties, sidewalks, driveways, roads, or utility lines, it poses significant risk to people and property.
- The tree is a health threat to nearby trees and shrubs, usually from either disease or infestation. When you remove this tree, you give other trees and plant life a chance to live.
It’s important that you do not attempt to remove a tree on your own. This is a dangerous job that should only be handled by professionals. Removing a tree on your own is a serious risk to yourself, your property, and the people around you. Tree removal is complicated and difficult. It requires specific techniques, equipment, and highly qualified professionals.
Emergency Tree Removal
During severe weather or as a result of a dying tree, an unhealthy tree can fail suddenly. The culprits can be excessive wind, snow, and ice which can snap trunks and branches quickly. Also, during heavy rains, the saturated ground can cause a tree to topple.
If you have a tree removal emergency, reach out to our crew at Longs Peak Tree Service via phone or text. Our crew of highly skilled arborists with state-of-the-art equipment can be quickly mobilized for specialty work and emergency tree service.
As many of us have experienced, major storms in Colorado can cause many downed trees and limbs all across the Longmont area. We will do everything possible to get you the help you need and fast.
Our experienced tree service crew in Longmont is on call to provide emergency tree removal service for our current customers and future customers. This is valuable in response to regional storms, when we can deploy our trucks and crews to assist in areas that are hard hit.
Once your home and property has been made safe, our crews will also clean up and remove debris.
What to expect from tree removal services?
Tree removal Longmont requires careful planning and execution. We need to be aware of other trees, shrubs, flowers, and structures. We also need to pay attention to sidewalks, driveways, and dangerous power lines. Tree removal services need to be performed in ways that keep people and property in the surrounding area safe.
Cutting down a tree safely requires careful dismantling by our specialized crew of highly trained arborists. We use state of the art equipment for a tree removal. The tools we use are often determined by the conditions on your landscape and the the stability of your tree. Based on the size and location of your tree, we will often deploy a bucket truck, crane and/or a chipper.
Here’s what our standard tree removal process looks like:
- Step 1: Taking down a tree
- Step 2: Chipping all brush and debris
- Step 3: Removing the stumps or cut them flush with ground
Removal of Debris
Once your tree has been removed, our team will quickly work to remove all of the debris from the property. Your property will look better than it did before we started the tree removal process.
You also may decide whether to leave the stump or remove it. Stump grinding uses machinery to shred the stump down below the soil level. The tree’s roots will remain, but will decay slowly.
Your Longs Peak Tree Service pro can chat with you about the pros and cons of grinding the stump, and the estimated costs for doing so. We take into consideration both the size of the stump and your own preferences. Choosing the best removal method depends on what you would like to do with the area where we removed the tree.
