Tree Trimming


There are generally three purposes for trimming a tree. They come down to aesthetics, health and safety.

Aesthetics. As we discussed earlier, trimming or pruning certain parts of a tree can make its other areas healthier and better looking.

This can go in the opposite direction as well. If a tree is cut back or shaped in unnatural ways, it can be damaged and begin to decay.

Health. Sometimes an infected tree can be saved by trimming it strategically.

This can be done by improving airflow we’re having branches that are touching removed so they don’t fall randomly.

​Safety. Dead dying or damaged limbs can fall any time any day under any conditions. Limbs that are blocking your vision as you drive should also be cut away.

Sometimes branches are coming close or in contact with utility lines. This is a major concern and can be an extraordinary inconvenience and it’s actually an opportunity to contact the utility company for help.

Tree Removal


One of the essential services our team provides is tree removal. All trees can pose a risk but if it is a large tree that is close to your home, it is crucial that you go with an experienced tree removal company that is licensed and insured.

Our expert Greenville, SC team has performed hundreds of local tree removals to protect our clients property, family and to a lesser extent, improve aesthetics.

We never want to remove a massive red oak or a towering magnolia (and there are laws to help protect large trees) but when choosing between a tree and our clients well being, the tree must go.

It’s disturbing to see extensive damage to a home and a family’s peace of mind knowing steps could have been taken to avoid it all together.

After a tree is removed, there’s the issue of the sturdy stump that’s left behind. There are typically two ways to handle it: grinding or removal.

There are pros and cons to both techniques and we are glad to go through them with you. We will also go over some of the issues with leaving a stump in the ground and why it can be beneficial to have it removed.

When should a tree be cut down or removed?

It’s not uncommon to remove a tree out of necessity. Here are the top five situations when a tree must be cut down or removed:

#1 The tree is dead.

There’s nothing anyone can do if a tree has already died. If you see a dead tree around your neighborhood, you must report it to your local government for removal. If the dead tree lies within your own property, you must contact a reliable tree removal service provider to take it down.

A dead tree will eventually lose its strength to stand upright. Plus, the weight of its branches will weigh it down to the side which can cause disturbance to the neighborhood or bring damage to your home. Moreover, the presence of thunderstorms, hailstorms, or even wind storms can cause the tree to fall and harm the whole neighborhood.

#2 The tree is rotten or diseased.

Trees can fall ill too – and like people, they can also spread their disease and infect their kind. Several reasons cause trees to get sick such as pests, chemicals, extreme weather changes, and even bacteria and viruses. Though their diseases are not contagious to humans, sick trees still pose a harmful threat.

Rotten or diseased trees weaken over time. If the matter is not treated quickly, it can cause the tree to die, fall, and infect other trees. And so, by calling a tree removal service provider, the damage can be assessed and evaluated – and precautionary measures such as cutting some parts of the tree can be done immediately.

#3 The tree is damaged.

Trees, especially tall and big ones, are usually damaged by lightning. These damaged trees pose hazards of unexpectedly falling over. A whole branch can suddenly fall on nearby houses, cars, or even passers-by. Moreover, if the damaged tree is close to electric lines, it can cause power interruptions or even electrocution when people stand near the tree! Damaged trees should be assessed and cut down to prevent such hazards from happening.

#4 The tree is too tall.

Sometimes, trees grow too tall that it goes over the local community’s safety guidelines. An overgrown tree can become unsteady and can cause danger to you and your neighbors, especially during extreme windy weather. Trees in residential zones are not meant to grow too tall or too big as they can cause harm to the neighborhood.

#5 The tree is encroaching.

Encroaching trees can cause damage not only to your property but to your neighbors’ as well. When trees have unusual growth – whether a spurt on their branches or roots – it can destroy structures or house foundations.

It can be a hassle when encroaching trees are dealt with too late. You might pay for the damages done, or worse – have your foundations completely rebuilt as it could cause some of your home’s structure to fall apart. Also, growing branches may cause disturbance to your neighborhood’s power lines or other utilities.

Trees that cause or potentially cause these kinds of neighborhood disturbances should often be removed.

Exceptional Tree Care at Affordable Prices

Affordable pricing in this industry is a beautiful thing and we strive for it! Between equipment, labor and insurance.. let’s just say tree care companies are strapped with a lot of overhead. Our stump grinder cost us $15K and we got it for a steal! Bucket trucks will run you another $25K. Our workers compensation insurance is a whopping 20% of labor costs. These only touch on day to day expenses in this industry. Now, we aren’t complaining because we love this job and our company – but it is tricky to cover all these expenses and still turn a profit.

We decided offering fair, honest prices that help our customers and our company is our goal.

Storm Damage Cleanup

The weather here in Greenville is some of the most pleasant on the east coast.  That being said, a storm will bring plenty of rain and wind that sometime’s lasts for days.  Combine this with our fertile soil and massive oaks, beech and pine – and you have a recipe for large falling branches and trunk breaks.

Our recipe for success is to cut these large fells into manageable pieces, clean the area quickly and efficiently, and haul off the debris for disposal or recycling.

There will be no damage to your yard/property as we treat every lot as if it was our own.

There’s no doubt tree service can be a dangerous job. There are many situations where a tree that needs to be trimmed or removed can cause massive damage to property.

All tree service companies are not created equal

When hiring a tree service company you want to choose a professional organization or individual that is insured, trained and certified. Just because somebody has access to a chainsaw doesn’t mean they are anywhere near equipped to handle your needs. We recommend not to focus on trying to save a couple hundred dollars when one poor cut can cost you thousands.

Our equipment is agile enough to get around most obstacles and move through your property without causing any damage. Our tree service experts are very adept at handling this machinery and will never attempt to use it where the risks to your home or surrounding structures are too great.

As you know here in Greenville we get plenty of sun and rain. This allows our wide variety of trees to grow tall and strong and in turn, very heavy. Don’t let these massive works of nature become one of your worst liabilities.

Regular Tree Service Benefits

One of the main benefits to having continual tree service performed is that it promotes tree health. This is because it removes dead and diseased limbs before they begin to decay and kill the rest of the tree.

You might be surprised to know that tree trimming improves the appearance of the rest of the tree. That’s because when damaged or insect infested branches of the tree are removed, the trunk is no longer giving energy to these parts allowing those essential nutrients to sustain the rest of the tree. It is not uncommon to see flowers and fruit production increase in trees that are having limbs removed.

Protecting your home and property

Even healthy tree branches that are hanging over your home can be a great risk during strong winds. We see living branches cause great damage to homes all over Greenville on a regular basis. Dead branches will not need wind and will eventually fall on their own. It is not uncommon for branches to bro they are way under roof shingles and eventually cause leaks.

Your family

Above all we need to make sure that we are protecting the ones we love and those who simply come onto our property. Cracked or dying branches can fall and injure or kill an unsuspecting passersby. We also see situations where children run into low hanging branches causing injuries. Proper pruning reduces the overall weight of a tree making it a safer part of your home environment every day.
