Tree Trimming Tarzana

Annual tree pruning and trimming is especially important in the first 5 years of a tree’s life, establishing the best appearance and structural balance.  In later years it can be less often, and primarily for tree health and safety.

Trimming is the careful shortening and removal of branches.  Our crew carefully balances the goals of hazard reduction, attractive foliage, view, and tree health.  Here are the main types of trimming — the details depend on each species and each individual tree.

  • Clearing removes dead and diseased wood along with any broken or poorly located branches. 
  • Crown raising trims away lower branches for improved clearance. 
  • Crown reduction removes up to a forth of all branches, requiring extra skill to achieve reduced wind loading with a properly weight-balanced structure. 
  • Thinning selectively removes branches for better light penetration, increased air circulation, and an improved view. 
  • Utility trimming creates clearance for utility lines.

Palm tree skimming requires a different set of skills.  Besides improving appearance, it removes habitat for insects and rodents as well as eliminates the hazards of falling palm fronds.  Done at the right time of year it also avoids the staining, slippery mess of falling seeds.  Our specialists can also perform palm tree skinning for the sleek appearance popular in Tarzana.

Tarzana’s Best Tree Removal

Healthy trees offer a multitude of benefits, both aesthetic and practical.  But sometimes our tree removal service is the only path forward.  That could be due to poor prior maintenance, age, or disease.  Or damage from a storm, earthquake, or vehicle accident.  An inappropriate species might have been planted at a poor location..  Or you may be preparing for a major site renovation.

Our tree removal service specialists do the job right.  With safety first and foremost, they have all the skills, equipment, and knowledge for a swift completion.  They’ll grind the branches and trunk for removal from the site, or leave the chips behind for your landscaping use.

Like most California cities, Tarzana has specific regulations regarding large tree removal.  Those require prior approval and a permit.  We’ll take care of that, and advise you on any re-planting requirements.

Stump Grinding

Whether recently or a decade ago, a tree removal quote that didn’t include stump removal means you’re now left with a few inches of trunk sticking up out of the ground.  It’s a mowing annoyance and an impediment to landscaping and gardening.  It’s also a trip hazard and likely to attract insects, especially termites.  

Facing facts, chemical treatments and chopping are rarely up to the task.  But our stump grinders use sharp carbide cutter disks to completely remove a stump in just an hour or two.  Including roots all the way down to as far as 20″ deep so you can immediately garden right on the spot.  We can haul away the wood chips, or leave them for you to use as mulch.
