Sometimes a tree's problems are so advanced that it needs to be removed. Removal is necessary when a tree is dead, hazardous, crowding, causing harm to surrounding trees or is being replaced for a more desirable tree. Sinnott Tree Service, Inc. can help determine if tree removal is necessary. We use proper equipment and techniques to safely remove trees. Our trained staff can safely remove a tree and grind the stump below ground level. Once the tree is removed, we can haul off all resulting debris -- leaving your property clean.
Be sure to call an insured professional when contracting for tree removal.
Common reasons for pruning include dead, dying, diseased or hazardous branches. A professional Arborist can provide you with recommendations on how to prune your trees depending on species, location, age, growth rate and the condition of your trees. Most pruning can be done throughout the year with minimal adverse effect on the health of the tree if it is performed by an Arborist. A properly pruned tree will stay healthier, improve the appearance and reduce failure in storms. Pruning service can include raising, thinning, center pruning, removal of large dead wood, and improving the appearance of your trees.
ISA PRUNING STANDARDS:
Removal off dead, dying, diseased, crowded, weakly attached and low-vigor branches from the crown of a tree.
Selective removal of branches to increase light penetration and air movement through the crown. Thinning opens the foliage of a tree, reduces weight on heavy limbs, and helps retain the tree's natural shape.
Removes the lower branches from a tree in order to provide clearance for buildings, vehicles, pedestrians and vistas.
Reduces the size of a tree, often for clearance for utility lines. Reducing the height or spread of a tree is best accomplished by pruning back the leaders and branch terminals to lateral branches that are large enough to assume the terminal roles (at least one-third the diameter of the cut stem). Compared to topping, this helps maintain the form and structural integrity of the tree.
An important factor to consider when contracting a tree service company is insurance. Many companies do not carry adequate insurance to protect your property and the people on it. Some landscape companies may attempt to pass off their coverage as sufficient for doing tree work, but it is often inadequate. Liability, workman's compensation, and auto coverage are all specialized and more expensive for performing tree maintenance. If an accident were to occur and the company you contracted was not properly covered, you may be held liable.
The following is a description of the insurance we carry, specially designed for tree maintenance:
- Liability Insurance
- Workman's Compensation Insurance
- Vehicle & Equipment Insurance
