Tree Removal

Sometimes it is necessary to remove trees.  In some cases, the tree may not be a desirable species for a given location.   Another reason is, trees will often be damaged structurally during a wind or ice storm.  Also trees can fall victim to insect or disease damage which, left unchecked, can pose a hazard to life and property. While a dead, damaged, or diseased tree out in the woods or in a swamp will provide a great habitat for a wide variety of wildlife, the same tree in a high traffic location, such as near a house, driveway, or children's play area should be removed immediately.  Call now for a free consultation with an ISA certified arborist from KMA Tree Service.

Tree Pruning

We offer a variety of pruning options, such as, complete crown cleaning( dead wood removal, diseased wood, etc). Thinning to allow more sunlight to penetrate the canopy and to reduce sail effect during periods of high wind. Canopy raising for roof clearance and service wires.

Tree Q&A

Why should I prune my trees?

Sometimes perfectly healthy and robust trees will have a few dead limbs.  This is a natural function of the tree.  As a tree grows some of the lower limbs will sometimes die off as new growth shades them out.  These lower, shaded limbs are no longer able to photosynthesize efficiently.  Having already served their purpose, these limbs can be removed for aesthetic and safety reasons.  Removing these dead limbs will speed up the healing and closure of these areas.

Roof clearance:

Some limbs of a tree can grow too close to your roof. If you see moss and lichens growing on your roof you probably have some limbs growing too close.  Lichens secrete acid that breaks down roof shingles drastically reducing the useful life of your roof.  Pruning limbs at least 8'-10' away from your roof will allow more sunlight and airflow to reach these areas.

Thinning:

Having problems growing grass?  We can thin your trees canopy to allow more sunlight to your lawn.  This in conjunction with canopy raising can often solve this problem.  Thinning also has an added benefit of reducing the "sail effect" during periods of high wind.

reduction pruning:

Sometimes smaller ornamental trees grow taller than expected.  Reduction pruning is sometimes utilized.  By carefully choosing proper spots to make cuts size can be reduced.  We never top trees as this practice is extremely detrimental to all species of trees.  If the tree doesn't die completely it will become a safety issue as the tree desperately tries to survive by producing watersprouts. These watersprouts grow very quickly and are always very weakly attached. They eventually become too large and will snap off easily.

Structural pruning:

Structural pruning is important to maintain strong, sturdy growth.  Eliminating weak or poorly developed limbs will ensure strength and structural integrity.   This type of pruning is optimal on young trees to achieve proper limb structure and a dominant central leader.

Who should prune my trees?

Trees are a very valuable asset on your property. Several recent nationwide surveys show that mature trees in a well kept landscape can increase property values by 7 to 19%. That's why you should always hire a certified arborist to care for your trees.  Certified arborists should never use spikes on a tree that isn't going to be removed.  Knowledge of proper pruning cuts and how different tree species react to pruning is important.  Improper pruning can do more harm than good.  When any cut is made (or not made) you can be assured that there is a comprehensive thought process behind it. KMA Tree Service is a company you can trust for the care of your trees. Request a free consultation today!

What Customers Say

Seth Lincoln

KMA removed two trees from my yard. Both were pines that were leaning heavily and threatened to fall in the road if a heavy ice storm occurred. Kevin from KMA removed both trees quickly and professionally. He's got the proper equipment to do it right and ran a very safe operation in my driveway. Since he trimmed many of the branches before taking down the main trunk of the trees there was a large amount of branches and debris on the ground. After the trees were completely taken down his crew cleaned all this up and left us with a nice clean yard. I would definitely use KMA again for tree removal.

Customer 2

I highly recommend KMA as tree removal specialists. They have a vast knowledge of what should, and shouldn't be cut down. Their estimates are very fair and they are punctual.
On several occasions we hired KMA for the removal of trees and branches from our property.  They removed trees and branches damaged by an ice storm.  They also made us aware of trees that needed to be cut down.
Their work was done in a professional manner.  They were aware of our surroundings and they cleaned up all debris when the job was done.
