Trees are a vital part of our natural ecosystem, but unfortunately, there are some occasions where they must be removed. This can be due to the tree becoming infected with a disease, which has spread from another tree. Sometimes, large tree roots can cause damage to nearby driveways, sidewalks or residential plumbing systems. Or a storm can damage the tree and cause it to die. Dead trees will drop their branches over time and then eventually fall down on whatever is around them, without warning!

Stump removal is a common activity performed by Brothers Tree Service. After a tree is removed, the work is not done. The stump still remains and what most people don’t know is that leaving a stump can cause problems down the road. An old stump in your yard might be considered an attractive feature, but it can present hidden dangers. An old tree stump can attract bugs, especially the kinds that like wood, which can eventually spread to your home if it’s nearby. Stumps are also potential hazards on your property, causing people to trip or causing damage to lawnmowers. Believe it or not, an old stump can also cause new tree growth! It’s best to just remove it so you don’t have to worry about any of these potential hazards.
Tree trimming and tree pruning are also important tasks that preserve the overall lifespan of a tree. Pruning removes dead limbs and prevents disease, decay and insects from attacking the rest of the tree. Trimming can also allow more sunlight in, if that’s what you’re trying to achieve, by thinning the canopy at the top of the tree. Ultimately, tree trimming is what we always strive to do, because our mission is to keep your trees healthy and contributing to our clean air!
