Tree removal in Upper Arlington
While we prefer to nurture trees back to health, we know that sometimes tree cutting and removal is the right option, especially when trees are diseased, dead, too close to power lines, or pose a risk to public safety. When you need trees removed from your Upper Arlington or Columbus property, contact Joseph Tree. Our professional team uses the latest techniques and equipment to ensure the job is done properly and safely.
Our tree removal services
We’ll choose the best tree removal method based on the project’s specific circumstances. ANSI best practices are always followed during this process. Traditional tree removal tree service involves safely dismantling a tree. When there’s enough space, we may use felling, a tree removal process that involves cutting the tree at the base. When needed, we may use the crane removal method. In some situations, using a crane to remove a tree is the most effective and safest option. We can also remove trees manually using the man lift method. Our Upper Arlington team is trained and experienced in climbing trees and safely removing sections of tree at a time using rigging components. If the tree isn’t safe to climb, we can use a platform lift to assist in the removal process. No matter how complex the project is, Joseph Tree can handle it.
Stump Grinding Service
Following tree removal services, it’s important to grind the stump to prevent regrowth. We use the proper stump grinding techniques to ensure we get the surface roots and achieve proper root separation. Following stump removal, our crew cleans up the grindings to make sure we have not missed any of the stump.
As trees grow and change, they need maintenance to ensure they continue to be strong and healthy. At Joseph Tree, we offer a variety of tree trimming and pruning services to support the tree’s lifelong health.
Corrective pruning or trimming is used to encourage a dominant main-stem leader early in the tree’s life, which helps the tree’s structural integrity. Corrective pruning or trimming also includes removing any broken, diseased, or rubbing limbs. When trees have dead limbs, we use dead wooding to remove these limbs to prevent future issues. We typically suggest removing dead limbs that are 2-3” or wider at the base as well as hanging or broken limbs.
Clearance pruning is a tree trimming method that ensures there’s enough clearance between trees and your house or yard. We suggest tree trimming to provide 10 vertical feet of clearance from your roof plus 10 to 12 feet of clearance from the ground to make it easier for people to walk under the tree. Branches should also not be touching the side of your house or business.
On rare occasions, crown reduction may be needed. Our experts will determine when this is needed and will use proper tree pruning tree care techniques to reduce stress. Crown reduction is different from topping; topping has been shown to be a harmful pruning technique. Joseph Tree always uses industry-leading methods and works with the health and safety of your trees and Upper Arlington property in mind.
Plant and Tree Care
Trees in urban environments like Columbus require different types of care than trees in forests because they face different challenges. Urban trees in Upper Arlington are often placed near roads, homes, and sidewalks and don’t have the same lush soil that forest trees have. Construction, foot traffic, improper planting, and reduced root zones can all place stress on urban trees. Fortunately, Joseph Tree can create a proactive and comprehensive tree health program to keep your trees healthy.
Our program is built using the tree service industry’s best practices and is based on six principles: comprehensive and proactive tree care, observation and testing, acceptable pest levels, responsible chemical use, treatment progression, and client education. We customize each care plan to fit the specific needs of our client and their trees. Treatments, pruning, and cultural controls will be used as needed based on each individual tree’s health. We use observation and lab testing to determine a tree’s issue and guide our decision making regarding treatment. We also look at a tree’s pest level to determine if treatment is needed. If we decide treatment is the best option, we reduce our environmental impact as much as possible by using modern pest treatment techniques and using only the proper amount of chemicals. We can also provide soil and tree treatments to support the tree’s overall health. With each visit, we educate our client on their urban forest to help them understand the issues faced and solutions provided.
