Tree Removal Services
Columbus Ohio

Your trees need maintenance, and sometimes removal. While we prefer to nurture your trees back to health, we recognize that tree removal is necessary for certain situations. We may determine that tree removal is a property owner’s best option when a tree is dead, diseased, or poses a risk to electrical lines and public safety.

Whether you’re a seasoned tree-owner or a first-timer, our Certified Arborists are here to provide transparency and all the information you need for your tree removal. We believe in the power of local businesses and with that, the trust factor you get when working with a company that has Columbus roots. Our arborists are here to answer any questions you may have from consultation all the way through to cleanup.

Our Tree Removal Methods

Traditional Removal

Our arborists can safely dismantle a tree if there is not space to safely fell it. After close considerations, our field staff will determine a plan to properly remove your tree. All field crews have a minimum of one ISA Certified Arborist per crew, to ensure ANSI best practices are followed.

Crane Removal

Sometimes a traditional removal won’t get the job done. We have the capability of using a crane to safely remove trees. Certain situations make it the safest and most effective way of removing a tree. Our certified crew is highly trained in the most up-to-date methods of crane operations. We also abide by all OSHA and ANSI safe practices for crane use and yearly inspection requirements.

Man Lift

Our crews can climb and safely bring tree sections down with rigging components. If the tree is not safe to climb, Joseph Tree can implement a 72’ Platform Lift that can be used as an elevated platform to assist in the removal process. No matter the complexity, we can handle situation.


We are able to safely get a tree on the ground by felling the tree from its base. Sometimes trees can be felled from the ground using modern, safe felling methods. All of our Urban Forest Specialists are trained in modern felling techniques as well as adhering to the most recent ANSI Z133 standards for safe arboricultural practices.
