A: The tree service processes and prices vary, and are generally contingent on:
A: Although we certainly do manage trees for a large number and variety of commercial properties, all over the metro area, we recommend you see our Commercial and HOAs section here instead.
A: Sure. We use bark coloration, presence of live tissue and buds to determine whether any given tree is in its dormancy period. And for some trees, like fruit trees and American elms, it’s preferable to trim in winter. Request an evaluation for specific details on your particular tree!
A: When we remove a tree, we do so as close to the ground level as is safe and possible - potentially, this may leave a stump of 1” - 12” above the grade. We’ll be happy to remove your stump as well, but bear in mind that this requires different equipment and is a separate service. See Stump Removal details for more.
A: Our arborists make a visit to your property to evaluate your specific situation in person. Like any doctor, we do have to see our patients. We typically have a one to five business days’ turnaround time on our estimates. Request one here or call us at 303-806-TREE to schedule.
We grind the stump and haul almost all of the mulch/debris away to be recycled. We leave a level of mulch in the ground area to serve as filler.
ArborScape can also leave all the mulch created if you prefer. Just let the estimator know if that’s your preference.
There are many reasons to have your tree stumps removed. Not only are they unsightly, they can be a liability issue as well - someone might trip on either the stump or the roots and get seriously hurt. Grinding is also much less invasive than digging or pulling the stump out, is environmentally safer and cleaner than applying chemicals, and all of our debris is recycled.
We grind the stump to a depth of 6 to 8 inches below grade level, leaving level mulch in the ground area to serve as filler; you can install turf, mulch or ground cover. Or place a new tree 1 to 2 feet to either side of the old tree.
Stump removal safety and protection of property is crucial. A plywood shield is utilized to protect your house and windows from any debris or rocks kicked up by the circular teeth of the stump grinder.
After we grind your stump, there’s some potential that the inaccessible buried root system may continue to try to send out “suckers,” small sprouts of the original plant. If you don’t want a new tree, you can remove these as they appear.
We don’t recommend treating your stumps chemically. This is due to the tendency of these chemicals to spread through the ground, and that means you may end up killing other similar trees nearby - potentially *any* other trees or shrubs nearby!
We notify and obtain permission from utility companies, so no costly damage occurs to underground lines during the stump grinding. Please be aware, however, that we don’t know your turf and landscape like you do, and won’t be able to intuit where any buried maintenance utilities like irrigation systems, sprinkler piping, low-voltage lines, et c., reside in your ground. Please remove these items prior to your tree removal or stump grinding services - Arborscape isn’t responsible for damage to them.
We remove all the surface roots we’re able to access or see, grinding them to the same depth as the stump - usually 6” to 8” below the surface.
