The type and scope of tree work will dictate how long the job takes.

We’ll give you an estimated timeline for any work included in a proposal.

In many cases we can remove trees that have electrical wires passing through the canopy. However, depending which wires they, it may need to be done by the utility. When we meet to review the job, we can point you in the right direction if it is not something safe for us to do.

Typically, it’s not necessary to obtain a permit to remove a tree in Plymouth or Norfolk Counties. However, if the tree is located near wetlands, you will need to contact the conservation department at your local town hall to gain permission to remove the tree. But don’t worry, we'll guide you every step of the way in determining if the tree is located near wetlands and with obtaining permission.

Yes, we can! We use a powerful stump grinder to get rid of tree stumps.
