Stump Grinding

Tree stumps on your property are unsightly. Why leave them there when we can remove them with our remote controlled stump grinder? After we grind the stumps down 6-12 inches below the surface of the top soil, you are able to use that area of your property the stump used to take up by planting a new tree or shrubs, or just completing your yard with new grass. Let our professionals take care of the stump safely and efficiently for you.

Grind Stump, Rake Mulch into Hole

With our stump grinder, we will grind the stump and surrounding roots 6-12 inches below the soil. The stump grindings (mulch) will be neatly raked back into the hole were you can leave them to decompose into the ground for the next few months to create nice, fertile soil to replant a tree, shrub or grass.

Grind Stump, Remove Mulch, Soil/Seed

We will grind the stump and all apparent surface roots 6-12 inches below the soil and the stump grindings (mulch) will be raked back into the hole. We'll then remove the mulch from the hole and fill it with screened and enriched topsoil. Finally, we'll regrade, spread grass seed, fertilize, and finish the area off with straw so you can have a fresh new patch of grass.

Tree Removal

Trees may be removed for different reasons. The tree could be dead or dying. It could be dangerous to your home, property, cars, or pedestrians. Trees could have fallen or been damaged by storms. Another possibility is that it's diseased. You might even want the tree removed because it's in the way or it's over crowding other trees or plants.

Removing a tree can be dangerous. It should always be done by an experienced, professional, certified arborist. We have the experience and equipment to do the job safely and efficiently for you. We will determine the best way to safely remove your tree for you.

When we have completed our job, you can be assured your property will be cleaned up and left as it was before we started.

Remove Tree, Cut Stump Low

We will cut the tree down, remove all wood and chip up all debris. After the tree is down, we will cut the stump as close as possible to the soil grade.

Remove Tree, Grind Stump

We will cut the tree down, remove all wood and chip up all debris. Then our stump crew will come grind out your stump and surrounding roots 6-12 inches below the soil. You will have the choice of having us rake the stump grindings back into the hole or having us come out to remove the mulch, soil, and seed for grass for an extra fee.

Remove Tree, Leave Wood

We will cut down your tree, chip up all branches, leave and any limbs that are too small for firewood. We will cut any logs into 16-18 inch long sections and stack them for the customer. Finally, have the choice of having the stump cut low or grinding the stump out.


This section will describe the techniques we use to prune your tree. Removing dead, dying, diseased, rubbing and weak branches keeps your trees healthy, safe and attractive.

Crown Cleaning: Clean Out

This is the removal of all branches and limbs that are dead, dying, diseased and weakly attached branches from the crown of the tree. We chip up and clean up all debris from your property.

Crown Raising: Elevate

The removal of the lower branches of a tree to provide clearance and raise the whole bottom of the trees canopy.

Crown Reduction

This refers to reducing the size of the top and sides of the canopy. This usually applies to the top 1/3 of the canopy or above prior cuts. Reshape complete exterior of the tree.

Prune Annual Overgrowth

Prune all annual overgrowth and reshape.

Lateral Reduction

Reduce crown area with drop crotching technique and reshape, complete exterior reshaping. Removal of all major deadwood, interior overgrowth, and elevate to balance.

Weight Clear

Selective pruning to remove one or more of the following parts: dead, diseased, intertwining, and/or broken branches. All cleaning will be of branches 2 inches diameter or greater throughout the entire crown. Prune back several lower, lateral, elongated branches to alleviate overall weight. Prune to provide adequate branch clearance to building, roof, walkway, light fixtures. Elevate to balance.

Crown Thinning

Crown thinning is the selective removal of branches to increase light penetration, air movement, and/or to reduce weight without compromising the tree's shape.

Vista Pruning

Vista pruning is the selective thinning of framework limbs or specific areas of the crown to allow a view of an object from a predetermined point.

Lot Clearing

When we clear a lot for you, we first remove all trees, bushes, vines, and/or overgrowth. Next, we chip and clean up all of the debris and haul away all the wood. Finally, we'll grind stumps 6-12 inches below the soil and rake the mulch back into the holes.

Emergency Storm Service

We've all seen trees which were damaged by the weather. Trees split, fall or become damaged due to all sorts of weather conditions. Wind, sometimes even a light wind, can cause a tree to fall. Cold temperatures also do damage. Rain can even weaken trees or cause trees to uproot. Of course lightning during a thunderstorm can strike a tree and cause damage. With all this in mind, we offer complete removal of fallen limbs or trees off houses, cars, trailers, fences, or wherever they may land. We'll clean up all debris and haul away all wood. We can also replant trees or plants damaged from storms.

Bucks County has its fair share of inclement weather. We have thunderstorms, ice and snow that can damage trees. Dealing with a fallen or damaged tree can be difficult or dangerous. The weight can cause more damage if not taken care of as soon as possible.

Please do not hesitate to contact us 24 hours a day for emergency storm work so we can help you be safely taken care.

Snow Plowing

We offer inexpensive and efficient snow removal services. Several trucks, all equipped with four-wheel drive, are ready to plow parking lots, industrial parks, or communities. During heavy snowfalls, we are able to remove snow mounds from commercial parking lots. We also salt the area and shovel walkways.
