Boise, Idaho has long been called the “City of Tree”s. However, did you know that when the town was first established, the nearest trees around were cottonwoods and willows along the river? In fact, Boise was once a dry sagebrush plain with the nearest pines and firs miles away on our distant mountain ridges.
Now that the Boise is home to thousands of trees, why would anyone think to remove them? Well, tree removal services are important because over time, trees can become damaged due to declining health, landscape renovations, disease, or even storm damage. They also die just like all living things. When a tree becomes a hazard, it’s important to have it removed for the safety of those around it.
The tree care professionals at Mountain West Arbor Care are trained and certified when it comes to every type of tree removal service. Whether a tree is cracked, aged, damaged or dead, our certified arborist can provide the tree removal services you need to quickly and safely remove it from your property.
Step 1: We Inspect The Area
The first thing we do is assess the stability of a tree and it’s surrounding area. Often times, a tree is located close to a building, fence and other structure. Our certified arborist will make sure to clear an area beneath the tree to which we will direct all falling branches to protect your home and property.
Step 2: We Inspect The Tree
Accessing the current health of a tree is the second step in our tree care removal process. Cracked and damaged trees can be difficult to remove and need a tree care professional to know what areas will handle the pressure of the tree. Trees that have been snapped or broken during a winter or summer storm are also unpredictable and need careful examination before removal. Once our certified arborist has assessed a tree thoroughly, we will then lay out a plan for removal.
Step 3: Branches Are Removed
The certified arborist at Mountain West Arbor Care will climb the tree using ropes and a safety harness. In urban areas where there are plenty of nearby structures, a common approach to ensure everyone’s safety is to trim a tree branch by branch. When a branch is removed it is then directed to fall within a cleared area. As our certified arborist works, smaller branches will be removed before larger pieces. Below, our ground crew will gather and stack limbs in a safe area. At times, a crane or bucket will be used to leverage a better position for trimming or to reduce unnecessary risk.
Step 4: Tree Base Removal
Once our certified arborist has removed enough or all of the branches, we will then work to remove the tree base. This is done very carefully to ensure the safety of the surrounding structures that could be impacted by the removal of a tree.
Step 5: Stump Removal
After a tree has been removed, we can remove the unwanted stump from your property using a stump grinding tool. Tree stumps can not only be hazardous, but they can make it difficult to add new plants or install features like patios, paths, and gardens. By having a tree stump removed by our certified arborist, we can provide you with a cleaner space in which to redesign your new landscaping.
