Large, Difficult, Damaged or Fallen Tree

Tree Removal

There are many reasons why you may want to remove trees from your property. They may be old and decaying or infected with a contagious disease. In many cases, the trees are overgrown and can damage your property with large root systems and giant branches. Whatever the reason may be, you can count on Easy Tree Service in Minneapolis to do the job right the first time.

Our expert arborists go to your home first to make a careful estimate. We consider all the factors that will affect the tree during removal. Our business is fully licensed and insured to remove the burden of costly mistakes that happen when you do it yourself. We have seen do-it-yourself tree trimmers who’ve destroyed their homes, garages, or swimming pools by biting off more than they can chew.

Because trees are so massive, you need professionals with the right tools and experience. There is no certain method for ensuring how a tree falls if you don’t have the proper tools and training. And what is left over can be worse than the removed tree.

This is why we also provide services to remove and grind down any stumps and arch roots remaining on the property. This leaves you with a fresh landscape to develop into that picturesque property. Our full-service treatment makes it easy to find your desired satisfaction with all your treeline needs.

Don’t put off tree removal another day! Trees that are decaying, overgrown, diseased, or dead can cause extensive property damage. All it takes is one severe storm or a single lightning bolt to bring that massive weight crashing down on everything that you own. Tree removal pays for itself by increasing your property value when you remove any unsightly trees or hazards.

Our services are fast, affordable, and performed by experts rather than day laborers. All of our workers are dedicated to tree care and put in the hard work and time to ensure that the health of your trees is fully assessed before any service is carried out.

It is easy for wounds from improper tree trimming to come down with diseases that kill your valuable trees. Trees don’t grow up overnight. You don’t want to gamble with the valuable investment that you’ve made in your treeline. Your neighbors, property, trees, and plants will all thank you when you call Easy Tree Service to take care of all your tree needs.

Keep Trees Healthy & Direct Growth

Tree Pruning

Professional tree pruning keeps trees healthy and helps direct growth where it’s most needed to sculpt your tree line to a beautiful canopy on your property. It’s important to use professional tree care specialists to properly prune your trees in and around Minneapolis. We have the equipment to properly trim trees without disturbing your yard and the expertise to ensure proper growth.

Is Pruning Trees Necessary?

Pruning is the most common tree maintenance procedure. Although forest trees grow quite well with only nature’s pruning, landscape trees require a higher level of care to maintain their structural integrity and aesthetics. Pruning must be done with an understanding of tree biology. Improper pruning can create lasting damage or even shorten the tree’s life.

Reasons To Prune Trees

Because each cut has the potential to change the growth of the tree, no branch should be removed without a reason. Common reasons for pruning are to remove dead branches, to improve form, and to reduce risk. Trees may also be pruned to increase light and air penetration to the inside of the tree’s crown or the landscape below. In most cases, mature trees are pruned as corrective or preventive measures, as routine thinning does not necessarily improve the health of a tree.

When To Prune Trees

Most routine pruning to remove weak, diseased, or dead limbs can be accomplished at any time during the year with little effect on the tree. As a rule, growth, and wound closure are maximized if pruning takes place before the spring growth flush.

A few tree diseases, such as oak wilt, can be spread when pruning wounds provide access to pathogens (disease-causing agents). Susceptible trees should not be pruned during active transmission periods.

Grinding Or Removal

Stump Grinding

Unlike other companies that may not have the tools necessary to completely remove a tree with its stump and roots, Easy Tree Service can grind multiple trees without any issue and remove them effectively. Whether you have just one stump that needs grinding or removal or an entire lot, our team can handle it! Some folks even use tree stumps for decorative or seating purposes, so we work alongside our landscape designers to come up with the best plan for your yard.

Why Might I Need Stump Grinding?

Stump grinding isn’t just for unsightly trees. It is also useful to clear the land for another purpose or even to plant another tree. Stump grinding is a more efficient way to remove a tree over total removal in that it’ll have less impact on the landscape. Removing or grinding an unused stump also expels any unwanted ants, bees, snakes, termites, and other pests.
