Once the decision has been made to prune or remove the tree, your next decision is whether or not to tackle the job yourself. If you do decide to do it yourself Custom Tree Services offers a wood chipping service, where we come in and chip everything you have pruned leaving you with good quality mulch for your gardens or the woodchip can be taken away.
Pruning and felling of trees can be dangerous work. If the job involves working on large trees the knowledge and use of specialized equipment is very important, not only for the safety of the person(s) pruning/removing the tree but also for the surrounding property where the tree stands; homes, businesses, cars, and pedestrians can be put at serious and unnecessary risk.
Other considerations need to be taken into account when working on trees that are next-to or near-by electrical power lines or have electrical lines running through their branches.
If you think the job is a little too big for you then please don’t hesitate to call us.
