Tree Removal Services Throughout The Greater Puget Sound Area

Arbor Magic Tree Services provides regular tree removal services throughout the greater Puget Sound area. Although we prefer to preserve trees, we understand that there are valid reasons to remove a tree. when tree roots grow under concrete patios, sidewalks or driveways, they eventually grow large enough to compact soil and then crack the concrete. trees planted to close to structures will eventually grow roots that will crack foundations. Some groups of trees are planted to close together, which can effect the health and growth of other trees. Trees block sun, become diseased, die, effect your lawn, block views etc., providing a multitude of reasons for removal.

Arbor Magic Tree Services Mission is to preserve Northwest trees, however, there are many occasions where removal of a tree is necessary. If removal is required, only a qualified tree removal experts should be utilized. It is extremely dangerous work and people can get hurt if something goes wrong (not to forget the possibility of serious property damage). Arbor Magic Tree Services has all the gear, equipment and personnel to remove a tree safely in any location.

Although we normally climb trees for removal, we also utilize lift trucks, when necessary, to access trees that are located in difficult locations. Our climbers normally drop pieces of wood on the ground, however, in sensitive locations we will lower pieces to the ground by ropes using friction devices to minimize or eliminate damage to the surrounding areas, plants, or property.

There are many reasons to remove a tree. For instance, the tree could be diseased, dead, or dying, it could be blocking sunlight, or it could be damaging concrete structures (e.g. sidewalks or driveways) or house foundation due to root growth. It could even be that you simply want the tree gone…or in the worst case scenario, a tree has tipped or fell requiring emergency tree service.

Spur And Saddle Method

The most common method for removing a tree in urban areas is the spur and saddle method. This method involves a highly skilled climber who is specifically trained in climbing, cutting, Knot tying, proper lowering methods using ropes and safety procedures. The climber uses spikes strapped to his legs and a lanyard rope that wraps around the tree to secure themselves to the tree. exactly how you may have seen loggers use.

After Removal is Complete

After the removal is complete, we chip all the branches by running them through a wood chipper that turns all the branches into mulch. The wood that is left is your property, and you can keep it, or we will arrange to have it removed for you by our wood haulers. Please be informed that a tree removal is a messy job, so please expect some sawdust to remain after cleanup.
