Tree Trimming & Tree Removal
Green Control Landscape & Tree Service has the expertise to provide tree removal services for any tree, any size, anywhere. Tree removal is recommended when the tree is damaged, dead, or dying, causing obstruction or hazards, or when a replacement of a more suitable tree is needed.
Tree removal service presents challenges since they are often surrounded by other valuable plants or structures. The tree removal process requires careful dismantling by highly trained personnel to ensure safety and the protection of your home and property. Green Control Landscape & Tree Service follows the tree removal standards set by the International Society of Arboriculture to ensure safety and efficiency.
Stump Removal & Stump Grinding
Stump removal enhances the appearance of your landscape. Our stump removal service will grind stumps well below grade, remove mulch, and replace dirt to make the area level. Underground utilities are often an issue and all underground details and locations need to be disclosed before an estimate.
Tree Pruning & Shaping
Pruning is the practice of cutting branches to improve the shape and growth of trees, and our trained specialists use pruning methods to improve the natural shape of your trees. Tree pruning and shaping on overgrown trees and shrubs will restore aesthetics and structural integrity while improving overall plant health. Tree pruning can also be done for safety and storm damage risk management. Usually, tree pruning is a preventive measure to remove dead branches, crowded limbs, eliminate overhanging branches, or increase light and air penetration to let the wind flow through safely.
Tree Topping & Thinning
Tree topping is the removal or cutting of large branches at the crown of the tree. Topping a tree is usually done to prevent damage to the tree or its surroundings. Typically, trees must be maintained at a certain distance from power lines and utilities to maintain safety.
Thinning is done to reduce wind sail on the large tree, allowing wind to pass through the tree more safely and thus avoiding blowing the tree over.
Brush & Weed Clearing
Southern California is subject to hot weather, high winds, and dryness — all which create fire hazards when combined. We meet fire safety expectations when it comes to dealing with brush clearance and hillside clean-up. Most brush fires start on uncleared, overgrown areas with lots of fuel (such as dead branches, tree parts, and dry leaves) so brush clearance is considered a crucial barrier when flames reach developed areas. Yearly brush clearing and fire inspections have become a routine in Los Angeles, so it is important to ensure that this is done thoroughly and professionally.
Trees & Powerlines
A lot of power outages are caused by falling trees or branches that come in contact with electrical lines. Falling trees and branches can cause wires to break or sag to the ground, presenting a danger to motorists and pedestrians. The shape, size, and growth rate of trees determine how often they need to be trimmed. Generally, we recommend keeping 10 feet of clearance on all sides of power lines. Directional pruning conditions trees to grow away from power lines by removing only the branches that come in contact with the wires. By selectively trimming a tree’s branches, we can retain much of the tree’s natural crown.
Tree trimming is a job for trained, highly skilled professionals who use the proper tools and safety practices.
Note: Never attempt to trim a tree near electrical wires yourself unless you have had professional training.
Keeping Your Roof in Top Condition
The roof protects you and your family from the harsh outdoor elements. With regular inspections, you can catch small problems before they turn into big problems. Here are a few maintenance measures you can take to prevent problems from occurring:
1. Clean all debris from the surface of the roofs, behind air conditioning units, pipes, and pitch pans. Collecting leaves tend to hold water expediting roof deterioration.
2. Trim all trees and branches near the roof to create a fire gap and to make it harder for rodents to access your home.
3. Remove debris from the gutter for adequate water drainage.
4. Trim overhanging tree branches. Vines often grow under shingles and cause damage if undetected.
