In the event of a tree emergency, we’ll be there to help you. Once the emergency vehicles have left the scene, we will be able to take over and establish what we need to do in order to either remove the tree or prevent the tree from causing further harm to you or the buildings. We will secure the area, and remove anything blocking roadways or buildings affected in a timely and efficient manner. It is our job to keep you safe, so we will be on-call, especially in the event of a storm.

Emergency Tree Removal
In the event of an emergency situation where the tree has fallen over, we will do our best to get to the scene in a timely manner to remove the tree efficiently. This will be done by bringing materials to cut down larger parts of the tree, including any major branches and trunk. We will bring a large vehicle to store any parts of the tree to remove from the property. If this is a situation where emergency vehicles are involved, then we will wait for them to clear the scene first before arrival.
We will do our best to inspect all trees and create a detailed analysis of the possible scenarios a tree may pose a threat given the location it’s in and its health status. If a tree is too close to a cable line, we will advise that it gets cut down so that it won’t cause any electrical harm. If it’s on a hill overlooking a highway that’s become too steep over the years due to erosion, we may advise that this too is also either removed, or we would request the ground to be leveled.
Storm Damage Cleanup
When a storm occurs, we will be on-call to remove any trees or large branches from the road, as it becomes a major safety hazard to pedestrians and drivers. We will have a larger staff at those designated times that will be able to come out onto the road to remove any of the debris. We also have a strict system in place that we follow in the event that there is damage that needs to be cleaned up after a major storm such as tornado.
Trees in fact can be protected from being struck by lightning. This is done by doing an installation of copper wires running down the tree in order to ground the lightning instead of having the strike hit the tops of the branches. This installation would be permanent and reliable during most storms. In the event that your tree does get struck, we offer removal services in the same way as any other emergency tree removal service.
