Tree Removal

There are plenty of reasons why you would need tree removal services. Sometimes a storm can knock down a tree in your yard. It’s not uncommon for trees to die or become unhealthy. Infected trees can be contagious and should be removed as soon as possible.

But tree removal can be tricky if you don’t know what you’re doing. It can be extremely dangerous if the tree is still standing. But, even if the tree has fallen down, it takes lots of work to chop it up and haul it away. Luckily, VI Tree Services has all the expertise and know-how you could ever want. Whether you want to remove a tree for aesthetic reasons or get rid of a dead tree, we can help.

Tree Trimming

People often think that tree trimming and tree pruning are the same things. The truth is they have very different goals and methods. Tree trimming is typically done for aesthetic reasons. After all, branches can grow all over the place and end up making the tree look unwieldy. Tree trimming can restore some order to the look of your property.

Trimming can also help ensure that the whole tree thrives by removing some branches that block sunlight or moisture from getting down to the rest of the plant.

Tree Pruning

While tree trimming is about making your trees look better and grow evenly, tree pruning is about protecting a tree’s overall health. Pruning is done to remove dead or diseased branches that could endanger the rest of the tree. Pruning can boost growth and ensure health when done correctly.

However, it’s a difficult task for anyone who hasn’t been trained to perform it. Our expert arborists are happy to advise you on trimming and pruning your trees to keep them healthy and looking great.

Stump Grinding

Stump grinding is a popular alternative to stump removal, but which process you choose depends on your plans for the area. Stump grinding is a more efficient process that is generally quicker and less costly than stump removal.

A machine is brought in that is specially designed to grind down tough stumps, leaving behind mulch that you can use for various things around the yard. Our employees can get the stump ground down to several inches below the surface of your yard. But, stump grinding leaves behind the root system, which takes a long time to fully decay. If you’re trying to build a structure or plant a new tree where the stump was, removal is your best bet.

Stump Removal

The process of stump removal is intensive, but it gets the whole root system out of the ground. We accomplish this with a combination of pulling and digging the roots out. Many people underestimate just how deep and wide a tree's root systems are and they’re surprised when they see the size of the hole in the ground that they have to fill in. But it’s an ideal solution if you’re revamping your landscaping, planting a new tree, or planning to build where the stump once was.

Whether you go with stump removal or stump grinding, know that either option is better than leaving your stump in the ground to attract termites and other pests that can spread to your home.

Lot Clearing

At VI Tree Service we have all the tools and experience for clearing the biggest lots with the largest trees. Depending on your plan for the lot, we can develop a strategy that gets the job done at a competitive price and a reasonable timeline. We’re happy to help clear commercial lots for new buildings, residential lots for homes or landscaping, and everything in between.

Emergency Tree Services

It can be a stressful time if a tree falls on your property. Whether it hits your home, your car, or just takes out some of your fencings, we realize that you want it gone as soon as possible. We also provide emergency tree services for trees or branches that haven’t fallen yet but are posing a danger to your property or physical safety.

We arrive promptly and utilize strategies to ensure the safety of you and your family, as well as our workers. Our combined 50 years of experience means there isn’t much we haven't seen when it comes to emergency tree services.

Tree Risk Assessment

A tree risk assessment is vital when you notice that a tree on your property is damaged or dying. We’re happy to provide an assessment and tell you what your best options are for dealing with the issue. So whether you’re unsure if a branch is dead and could fall on your roof, or an entire tree is sick and could cause damage to your property, we’re here to help. Our expert arborists are excellent at communicating the possible solutions to issues you may have with trees. Every situation is different, and we give you the best options possible.

Keep an eye out for the following signs. They often mean that a tree is dead or dying.

  • • A lack of leaves on the tree.
  • • Mushrooms growing on the trunk or around the base.
  • • Bark falling away or peeling to reveal black or brown underneath.
  • • Bare branches are a sign that areas of the tree are infected or dead.
  • • Holes in the trunk, big or small, could be a sign that your tree is dying.
