Tree removals are performed to eliminate dead and dying trees, as well as those that have become hazardous. Removals can also be useful in eliminating competition for light and space so that the remaining plants are able to grow and thrive. In some cases, trees may also be removed to allow for new construction, home additions and to provide clearances with those structures.

As part of the tree removal process, the stump will typically be left as close to the ground as possible. If needed, removal of the stump can be provided, as well as cut stump spraying. Stump removal can be challenging and often special machinery is required, but it may be necessary if the stump is a hazard in the landscape or simply an eyesore.
