When Should You Cut Down a Tree?

The moment you feel it is a potential risk. Diseases, structural instability, or extensive damage can all indicate that your tree is a danger to you and your home. You may also have to cut it down if it's obstructing essential construction or utility work. Additionally, trees that have died or are beyond saving may need to be removed to prevent potential hazards. We'd be happy to talk with you to help determine if you need tree removal.

How Much Can You Remove From a Tree?

There is no general amount you can safely remove from a tree as it varies significantly from tree to tree. However, a common practice is removing only 25% of a tree's foliage in a year. Removing too many branches or leaves at once can stress the tree and compromise its health. Not to mention, it can hurt the overall look of the tree. Our team takes great pride in precision tree trimming, so you should know that we'll only remove the right amount on every job.
