Tree Removal and Stump Grinding
Removing a tree of any size can be risky business. If you are planning to attempt a tree removal, and you have little to no experience, it is definitely wise to call a professional. The Greater Portland Tree Company provides tree and stump removal at competitive prices. We are fast, safe, and experienced. Here are a few key things to look for when hiring a tree removal service:
Superior equipment and training
A proper tree removal requires well functioning tools, and of course a great deal of finesse. It goes without saying that removing a tree could cause injury. An inexperienced person attempting a tree removal risks harming themselves or others. An improper tree removal can result in the damage of your property, your person, or your lawn. Or even worse, a neighbor’s property! Finally, there are property laws and Maine State Laws that prevent the removal of some trees.
When hiring a tree company, it is important they have the right tools, and they know how to use them. So how do you know if a tree company is legit? We are Maine State Licensed Utility/Landscape Arborists, and we use tools and methods to ensure a clean, damage-free, and legal tree removal. In other words, no license, no hire.
Stump Grinding and Stump Removal
Before calling for professional tree removal, you should have a good idea of the tree or trees you want removed, and why you want them removed. Chances are, you want to clear some space on your property, and in that case it is important to remove the entire tree including the stump. There are a lot of online guides for stump removal, and after reading a few, it will be clear that even with the right tools, stump removal is a very difficult process. For that reason, not all tree companies offer this service.
The Greater Portland Tree Company can quickly and easily remove your stump. In most cases we use a stump grinder to lower the stump to below the soil line, allowing your lawn to grow in where the tree used to be. We can also dig the stump out completely, allowing you to build a structure where the tree used to be.
The Cost of Tree Removal
It is hard to put a price on tree removal, because every tree offers different challenges. It is therefore all the more important that you call a few local tree companies to compare their rates for tree removal.
You may expect to pay a lot for the safety and convenience of professional tree removal. Not so with the Greater Portland Tree Company. We have some of the most competitive prices in the area. Contact us today for a quote.
