Calabasas Emergency Tree Services
Some problems need to be taken care of immediately. So our professionals are ready anytime time of the day or night for a prompt arrival at your Calabasas location.
Following a wind storm, mudslide, earthquake, or vehicle accident those problems may include a downed tree or a split crotch with a limb coming down. After an expert evaluation of risks to buildings, vehicles, and the tree itself we’ll use the latest equipment to clear damaged wood and stabilize the tree. Or, if necessary, we can provide emergency tree removal services.
Whether for emergency or scheduled services we always put safety first. And we’ll fully clean up, haul everything away, then recycle or properly dispose of it. As part of any emergency tree service we’ll be happy to have a look around and advise you on follow-up maintenance issues. In addition to the following our services to Thousand Oaks homes and businesses include brush clearing for appearance and fire protection.
Tree Trimming Calabasas
Proper pruning and trimming does more than improve appearance. It protects the health of the tree and in turn the safety of nearby buildings, vehicles, and power lines. And it’s most important during the first 5 years of a tree’s life, establishing the best overall shape and balance.
Pruning or trimming involves selectively shortening and the removal of branches. The exact technique varies with each particular species. The crown is the upper leafy part of the tree. Our tree trimming services include crown raising for lower clearance as well as thinning. Crown reduction goes further and involves removing as many as a fourth of the branches to let in more air and light and to reduce the forces of strong winds.
Palms, a favorite in Calabasas, require special treatment. They’re structured differently, internally transporting water more like grasses. Palm tree trimming removes heavy sharp fronds before they become a falling safety hazard, and palm tree skinning smooths the trunk for a sleek manicured appearance.
Tree removal is often the option of last resort. But it’s sometimes the best option in cases such as
- Disease, damage, or age,
- Inappropriate species planted too close to a sidewalk, driveway, sewer, or water line, or
- A new structure, landscaping renovation, or adding solar.
Large tree removal is especially difficult, but we have the skill and equipment to do so safely.
Calabasas city codes place restrictions on removing trees above a certain height and/or trunk diameter. We’ll take care of any necessary permits and assure compliance by doing everything by the book.
Tree removal leaves several inches of trunk above the surface. Besides being an eyesore the stump is a tripping hazard and gets in the way of mowing, landscaping, and gardening. They also attract termites and other insects. Or they can sprout and send out more roots.
Natural decay can take decades, and even with harsh chemical treatments it can take years. But our powerful stump grinding equipment takes just one to two hours to remove a stump. Not just to ground level, but to as far as 20 inches deep.
