When to Call the Pros: Pruning, Tree, and Stump Removal

Trees, stumps, and pruning – is calling a pro really necessary? The answer is yes!

A time of new growth and refreshing warmth, spring is a great time to get a head start on your yard work. Three common spring tasks are tree removal, stump removal, and pruning. While some homeowners can accomplish these tasks themselves, for those with less experience or time, it is best to call in professional workers for assistance.

Tree Removal

If a tree on your property has died or is severely damaged or you simply want to clear up some space call in professional workers.

While you may be able to remove a small tree on your own, removing a large tree can be dangerous and requires special equipment and knowledge. Professional workers will have the necessary equipment to cut down the tree safely and efficiently. With their knowledge and expertise to ensure that the tree is removed safely, your yard will be clean and tidy, with no leftover debris.

Stump Removal

After a tree has been removed, you may be left with a stump in your yard. While some people may choose to leave the stump as a decorative feature, others may want to remove it for safety or aesthetic reasons.

Professional workers will have the necessary equipment to remove the stump efficiently. They will also know how to dispose of the debris safely.

Removing tree stumps requires careful attention to detail and experience with root systems, as the roots of the tree may have spread out over a large area. Without this knowledge, you could end up missing part of the tree or damaging your lawn. Professional workers will have the expertise to ensure that the stump is removed completely, there is no risk of regrowth and your yard will remain intact.


Pruning is another task that begs attention in the spring. Pruning involves trimming back trees and shrubs to encourage healthy growth and promote a more attractive appearance. While pruning can be done on your own, for the best results call in the pros.

Professional workers have the knowledge and expertise to prune trees and shrubs without damaging the plants. They know when to prune, which branches to remove, and how to make the cuts to achieve the desired growth. Pruning incorrectly can lead to damage or even death of the plant, making professional workers a must for those without experience.

While some homeowners may choose to tackle these spring cleaning tasks themselves, it is helpful to call in experienced workers. By calling in the pros, you can ensure that these tasks are completed safely, efficiently, and to a high standard.
