Tree lopping is the process of trimming various sections of a tree. The lopping may involve clearing away branches or limbs, or even shortening trunks. There are two different schools of thought in regard to the practice of lopping, with some people feeling the process is beneficial and others believing the practice should be avoided if at all possible.
A stump grinder or stump cutter is a power tool or equipment attachment that removes tree stumps by means of a rotating cutting disk that chips away the wood. Stump grinders can be the size of a lawn mower or as large as truck. Most accomplish their task by means of a high-speed disk with teeth that grind the stump and roots into small chips.
Removing a tree is a large decision that should not be taken lightly. Dead or dying trees should be removed for health, safety and aesthetic purposes. However, in certain instances live trees also should be removed when they interfere with other trees, buildings, driveways and utility wires. Sometimes a dead or dying tree needs to be removed to ensure the health of your other trees and ensure no physical threat to the home. We have the equipment and skill for any tree removal needs.
Healthy trees are consistently pruned. Trimming (pruning) your trees back so they'll grow healthier is just one aspect of pruning. There are many reasons to prune trees and we can handle any issue from health to safety to maintenance.
The removal of dead, dying, diseased, detached or broken branches is specified to improve crown appearance and the overall tree aesthetics. The removal of such branches may also be considered desirable where they represent a risk to persons or property. This process also allows the tree to compartmentalize more efficiently.
We cleared mostly agricultural land, removing citrus groves, tree wind rows, and nut tree orchards. While we still work for farmers and ranchers, we also clear land for new home developments, for urban redevelopment projects, for commercial buildings, for streets, for schools, for golf courses, and as part of our disaster clean-up services after fires, earthquakes, etc. We perform land clearing projects from as small as one tree to as large as hundreds of acres.
