Our Work -

 

We offer professional tree services including removal of broken branches and felled trees entangled in live transmission lines and trim trees away from conductors to keep the electricity flowing on a regular basis.

 

We remove dangerous trees that might create a hazard to the conductors.

 

We are often called out in the middle of the night to remove trees which have fallen on the power lines so that the utility can restore the power.

 

We respond to outages caused by storms.

 

We apply herbicide to control brush growth and also apply stump treatment.

 

Our Journeyman Trimmers have been trained in both climbing trees and running bucket trucks to remove limbs away from energized conductors.

 

We have training for Apprentices which includes CPR/First Aid, Flagging & Pesticide Study Classes.

 

Among our many duties are the following:

Tree service and tree removal, landscaping, stump removal & grinding, hand pruning, limb removal, certified and bonded arborists, professional tree specialists and more.

 

We are a residential and commercial tree service provider.

 

We will be doing CDL Training Classes very soon.

        Stay tuned for details ...
