We specialize in the removal of the large & hazardous trees. Our teams of skilled climbers 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.
There are often situations when removal of a tree becomes necessary:
- Dead, dying, diseased, or hazardous trees
- Obstruction or crowding
- To allow for construction
- Replacement by a more suitable specimen
We are well qualified in crane removals and because of our known experience in this area are often hired by other tree services to help them in their endeavors. Click here to get a full understanding of what the benefits of a crane assisted tree removal are.
Rick’s can routinely inspect your trees for common hazards that may have a direct impact on your safety:
- Proximity to utility lines and other structures
- Broken or partially detached limbs
- Decay or rot
- Potential damage to root structure due to construction or other grading.
Storm Damage Remediation
In recent years, the Mid-Atlantic region has experienced some of the strongest storms on record. Hurricane Irene, and Super Storm Sandy, along with the many snow and ice storms we have encountered have caused significant damage to many of the trees in our area. These high winds and heavy snow events often crack, split, or uproot even some of the most durable trees that we have. We can assess your property after one of these events, looking for cracks and uprooting of the trees that are within striking distance of your house. We will cut back any damaged limbs, and clean up all debris that have completely severed and have fallen to the ground.
