Although we work extremely hard to save trees, we also know that trees may have to be removed. When trees are stressed or weakened by storm damage, insects, or disease, removal may be the best option to avoid damage to your property or yourself. Tree removals can be complex. When a tree on your property needs to be removed, it is important to consult a certified arborist to ensure a safe and efficient removal procedure is used.
Our professional arborists will help you to determine whether your tree should be removed, or if a type of pruning is recommended to maintain or improve the health and appearance. While planning for tree removal, we will determine the safest way to remove the tree in its entirety. Our team is knowledgeable in all types of removal techniques and will proceed with the greatest care and concern for your property.
Large Tree Removal
Larger tree removal projects require heavy, specialized equipment and should be left to the experts, like us. Tree removal is the most hazardous aspect of arboriculture. Our arborists can consult with you in both emergency situations or during scheduled annual inspections to let you know if you should consider removing a large tree. We can remove large trees growing in confined spaces near houses, utility lines, and other sensitive areas.
Stump Grinding and Removal
A tree stump is not a detriment to your landscape, but it can sometimes have deep roots that can cause a new tree to sprout. Tree stumps can also be used as inhabitants for insects, such as ants and termites. Cortese Tree Specialists offers stump grinding, but it’s important to keep in mind that this is not a standalone service.
We remove the stump and surrounding roots, which are well below the surface of the surrounding area to allow grass or ground covers to grow. We also work with utility companies to make sure we know where to mark any underground utilities. Depending on the existing utilities and infrastructures, the grinding of the stump can be as deep as six inches. Either way, we will work with you on how to make your landscape beautiful for the long term.
