Trees on your property are very important to the aesthetics of your home. These same trees can also cause some costly problems if they are not cared for properly. Living in MN, we also know that the strong winds can really take a toll on our big beautiful trees.
If you need a tree removed or just trimmed Connell’s professional, friendly, fully insured technicians are here to help.
Not sure if you need your tree moved or trimmed? Here are several signs your tree may need to be removed:
- Big branches are dying
- The tree is losing medium/large live branches
- Leaves falling early or not coming back in the spring
- Dead or hallow sections in the trunk or branches
Other reasons for removing trees:
- Tree is too close to your home, foundation or power lines
- The roots are growing up under your sidewalk, driveway
- The tree is disrupting underground pipes
- The tree is leaning badly to one side
Cutting down trees is something everyone tries to avoid. However when a tree is sick, dying or creating a potential hazard, sometimes tree removal is necessary.
Tree trimming is also important and enhances the beauty of your property by improving your landscape views, elevating and shaping trees around pools, patios, driveways and sidewalks. Keeping your trees trimmed can also help reduce tree debris over many areas on your property.
Trimming a dead or low hanging limb can prevent that limb from falling on your (or your neighbor’s) home or vehicle and causing all kinds of damage and hassle for you. Tree branches rubbing against your roof can also do significant damage as well as introducing rodent or insect problems. It’s best to trim trees away from your home whenever possible.
If your tree is growing near power lines, do not postpone tree trimming until it is too late. A strong gust or spring wind or storm can break a large branch from the tree causing it to take down a power line.
Stump Removal and Grinding
In addition to our tree removal services, stump grinding and removal can also be done once the tree is cut down. Trees are usually cut down several feet above the base, leaving an unsightly stump in your yard. Connell’s has special equipment to grind down the stump into small chunks and then haul it off. We also grind down all of the roots underground so that you can plant grass, shrubs or even another tree.
