Professional Sandy Springs Tree Removal
We provide professional tree removal services in Sandy Springs, Georgia. Over the years we have earned a reputation as a reliable and hard-working local tree service. We offer low-cost tree trimming, pruning and stump grinding.
Very Large Tree Removal
Removing very large trees over densely populated areas requires special planning, training and equipment. Tree cranes, large trucks and tree chippers as well as properly outfitted skid steers will be used to complete the project as safely as possible.
To ensure preservation of the tree canopy, many cities have instituted tree protection plans. A large tree removal permit as well as a tree replacement plan may be mandatory. However, our tree removal compliance officer will complete any necessary tree tables and tree protection paperwork.
Emergency and Fallen Tree Removal
When a tree has been struck by lightning, damaged by a storm, or sickness is causing its collapse emergency tree removal measures must be taken. Trees that have already fallen or are leaning can be among the most dangerous to cut and remove. Never attempt to cut up a tree after it has fallen.
Cheap Tree Removal Services
Consider the consequences of hiring the cheapest tree removal service in Sandy Springs. Cheap tree services generally have no insurance and outdated licenses. Low-cost tree services routinely cut corners taking dangerous risks on your property that may result in tragedy.
Hiring unlicensed or inadequately insured tree removal companies who fail to obtain the proper permissions and permits also exposes you to HOA fines and civil penalties. The worst consequence of choosing a cheap tree removal service is having no protection and no legal recourse should accidents occur while the tree work is being performed. As the property owner it is your responsibility to verify the license, workers comp, and general liability insurance policy of any tree company in Georgia.
Why Choose Us
While many tree removal companies have no real concern for trees or the environment, our management team is led by a passionate arborist with a true love for healthy trees. Consider this: trees provide shade, improve our air quality and they dampen the sound of noisy roads. While tree removal is necessary, we advocate replacing the trees we remove.
The tree removal and stump grinding crews we employ have met the legal requirements for safety and equipment training and each has the expertise to safely remove any tree and grind the stump. When regulations mandate that a tree replacement maintenance report be submitted for permitting, we can refer an independent and licensed Georgia ISA arborist. Finally, we are licensed, bonded and carry worker’s comp insurance; so, when choosing the best tree removal service to meet your needs, please consider us.
HOA approval for tree removal may include applications and a tree replacement plan to be filed by an ISA arborist which we provide at no additional cost.
