We offer a wide range of tree care services in the Richmond area, including tree removal, tree trimming / pruning, 24/7 emergency service and stump grinding. From large commercial properties to single family homes, we have the knowledge, experience and equipment to handle any job, large or small.
Tree removal is necessary to protect homes and buildings, and sometimes for the well-being of the surrounding landscape. If a tree is dying or dead, or its roots are impacting foundations, sidewalks, or underground utilities, removal will be the best option.
Tree removal is a very involved process, requiring a combination of skill, sound judgment, and quality equipment. We will remove the tree safely, efficiently, and with as little impact to your property as possible. Our teams of skilled employees have many years of experience in dealing with all types of difficult situations such as limited access areas, nearby utility lines, and trees with extreme decay.
TREE TRIMMING / PRUNING
Tree trimming / pruning is an essential part of tree care, not only to enhance and maintain the appearance of your trees, but also to promote the health and longevity of your trees. By performing regular tree trimming / pruning you help maintain the integrity of the tree and promote the life of the tree as well as decrease the potential storm damage caused by severe storms.
Benefits of Tree Trimming / Pruning
- Improves the overall look and structure of the tree, limiting it from growing broad or weak branches. Trimming prevents limbs from developing with weak crotches, or possibly crossing each other and competing for space in the crown.
- Proper trimming of your trees can improve their health by removing branches that are dead or dying. These branches are often dangerous, and eliminating them can reduce the risk of damage to your property.
- Trees that are not trimmed properly can grow into structures, or hang over them. Tree branches hanging over your home can cause damage if they break off or slam into a home during a strong wind.
- Proper pruning can also lessen the weight of a tree, making it less likely to fall in a storm or from the continuous strain of carrying a heavy load.
With frequent maintenance, trees can enhance the look, feel and value of your property. Call us today for a free consultation.
Stump grinding is usually the final step in the tree removal process. Our crew will cut the stump as low to the ground as possible. Once the machine is maneuvered into place a rotating wheel will be engaged and the grinding will commence.
Once engaged, the cutter wheel will work back and forth over the stump. The typical stump will be grinded to a depth of 6-8 inches below the existing land grade. After the stump grinding process is done, the mulch will be raked into a pile and left to settle. The remaining mulch can be used as fill or weed control in wooded or natural areas, and most of our clients find a use for it somewhere on their property. If there is no suitable use for them on your property, we can haul the stump grindings away for an additional charge.
If you are tired of mowing around stumps, or simply wish to enhance the appearance of your property, call Blazer Tree Services for a free estimate.
