Tree Removal

Baltimore tree removalPorter Tree Services provides a wide variety of services to our customers, including tree removal. Before we begin any job, we will schedule a site visit to determine the scope of the removal and the equipment needed. At this time, we will also assess the area to allow for all necessary safety precautions.

Trees that are dead, unhealthy, or damaged can pose risks to people and property. Trees may need to be removed if they:

  • Demonstrate signs of death or disease
  • Pose a hazard by proximity to a home
  • Block sunlight from other plant material or turf
  • Interfere with construction or home improvement
  • Demonstrate signs of storm or wind damage

Trees that are growing too close to a home should be removed by licensed, professional tree removal experts. In high winds and strong storms, falling branches can break windows, damage aluminum siding, brickwork, and paint finishes.

Ways to Remove a Tree

The procedures we use are often dictated by the trees’ location, and its accessibility. Before removal, the tree will be assessed for the extent of damage that it has sustained. Tree removal services may include:

  • Utilizing a climber who will tie off pieces of the tree and slowly drop them to the ground.
  • Utilizing a bucket truck instead of a climber if the area is accessible by truck
  • Utilizing a method where the tree is dropped to the ground in one piece if the area is assessed as wide-open
  • Utilizing a crane to lift pieces away after they are cut if the area is extremely close to a home or inaccessible by other means.
