What Types Of Tree Services Are Available?

Arborist companies offer a wide range of tree-related services. They may include tree removal, pruning, pruning, trimming of overgrown branches, and other services. To some, it may seem like manual work, but these services are quite technical. However, they are not an easy job: being part of a tree service requires mental acuity and physical strength.

There are many reasons why people hire a tree service company. Trees that are infected, dead, or growing dangerously close to the property, or simply trees that are in the path of planned construction, are removed by a tree service.

However, the most important thing an arborist is hired for is to protect himself, yourself, and all the physical objects that you hold dear while he does his job. Whether he is pruning, felling, or touching a tree, there is always a danger – an arborist's job is to minimize the danger.

Trimming and pruning

One service offered by an arborist is pruning, which is the process of removing branches that are invading, damaging, and threatening property, or otherwise impacting or threatening something. While pruning is not as dangerous as felling the entire tree, there are several technical and physical skills required to prune safely, especially at high altitudes. That's when a tree service is necessary.


Whenever a tree is felled, no matter who does it or how, there is almost always a stump left. Getting rid of a stump is often the hardest part of tree removal. Grinding can cause a big mess; digging it up is often worse.

A tree service can come up with a well-thought-out plan to remove the stump and provide the specialized equipment or, in some cases, chemicals to remove the stump without adversely affecting the surrounding property.
