Tree Removal Portland

There is a reason we are in this business. We love trees. We think they are awesome. They are some of the largest features in our landscape and some of the oldest living organisms on the planet. They tower over us and seem to dominate the ground we walk on. However, their beauty and majesty only mask their complexity and fragility. In the forest, away from the impact of human activity, trees thrive. But in the urban landscape, they live with a good deal of stress, need to be cared for, and sometimes they just don't fit. Tree removal is sometimes necessary.

As Certified Arborists we are charged with the responsibility of managing the care of trees in the urban landscape. Tree removal is never our primary goal. However, we also recognize that removal in certain situations is the best option, be it immediate or in the near future. Trees can outgrow the space in which they were planted. This can conflict with infrastructure, utilities, or personal property. If not properly maintained, they can become unstable and hazardous. And though they can live for centuries in the wild, trees have a far shortened average life span in the urban environment.

All of these factors need to be considered when tree removal is being considered and we take this part of our job very seriously. That is why we perform a thorough analysis of the situation surrounding the possibility of removing a tree and when possible provide other options to be considered, if any. We understand that for the most part, property owners have the right to do what they want with the trees on their property, but maybe we can give them some insight that they were unaware of.

When it does become time for tree removal NW Tree Specialists has all the necessary equipment, resources, and professional tree removal crews to handle any job in the most efficient and safe manner possible. From aerial lifts, to cranes, to wood haulers and tree chippers, we have what it takes to remove your trees both economically and safely.

We are also well educated and experienced in handling all necessary permitting in Portland Metropolitan Area. Some cities have very strict tree removal procedures, others do not. It is important to know what jurisdiction your property falls under when considering removing trees on your property. Planting replacement trees is sometimes part of the requirements of for tree removal and something we, as tree lovers, do encourage. We can handle the replacement itself and implement a tree health care program to give your young sapling the best start to long health life or provide you guidance for proper species selection and planting considerations.
