General tree work is hazardous by nature, and tree removal is by far the most dangerous aspect of our job.  At Colonial, safety is paramount.  Our crews follow ANSI and OSHA standards and regulations to keep everyone safe and protect your property throughout removal operations.  We maintain the appropriate insurance coverage to protect you from risk.  


When a tree removal crew from Colonial shows up to do your job, you will see the difference in how efficient they are in doing the work, how careful they are in keeping everyone safe, and how respectful they are as they interact with you.  

When tree removal is needed

Dead or dying:  If a tree is dead or showing signs of significant decline, it should be removed to prevent it from falling and causing damage to property or people.

Diseased:  If a tree is suffering from a serious disease or pest infestation, it may need to be removed to prevent the spread of the problem to other trees or plants.

Structural defects:  If a tree has significant structural defects such as cracks, splits, or leaning, it may be at risk of falling and should be removed.

Crowding:  If a tree is growing too closely to other trees or structures, it may need to be removed to prevent damage or improve the health of other trees.

New construction:  If a tree is in the way of new construction or landscaping it may need to be removed.


Tree removals are best handled by professional arborists who have the knowledge and experience as well as the right tools and equipment to safely dismantle and dispose of a tree.

What is stump grinding and what value does it add?

Stump grinding is a tree removal method that involves using a specialized machine to grind the remaining tree stump into small pieces (a mixture of wood and soil).  This service is often performed after a tree has been cut down.  

Stump grinding eliminates the risk of trip hazards and tree resprouting, prevents decay and related pests, and allows for better use of your landscape as you can often replant that location or restore the area to lawn.

Stump Removal

Stump grinding, grinding removal (clean out and haul away debris created from stump grinding operations), as well as lawn restoration (topsoil, seed, and chopped straw) are optional, add-on services to our standard tree removal service and available by request.


If you are interested in any of these optional services, please let us know when you fill out your request and we will include pricing for these added services on your quote.
