Removals are evaluated by tree health or improper tree placement. Having a tree removed is only half of the job of a good tree company. Careful steps must be taken to prevent damage to your home and the surrounding environment. Soil compaction should also be taken into consideration on removals. We have the right equipment to get in and out of tight areas with little to no evidence that we were ever even there. We invest in the right tools to keep everyone safe and property damage free. Climbing and rigging is and always will be the basic backbone of our tree work. We also have equipment that requires no climbers in the trees by using a remote control grapple saw. Our bucket truck allows us to safely work in otherwise dangerous trees. Understanding advanced tree dynamics and use of ropes and rigging to safely dismantle a tree is one of our specialties.
Owner / Certified Arborist

Working for a progressive company removing beetle kill trees with helicopters in the remote forest was some of the most fun. He worked for Idaho City Hotshots on a fire crew, improving his skills with difficult tree removals. When Jerad's not trying to improve his knowledge of trees, he likes to spend time with his family, bike, woodwork and dabble in blacksmithing.

The trimming and pruning of trees is important as well. Finding a company that knows how to properly trim a tree can be a challenge. A good pruning requires both an experienced eye for the aesthetics of a tree and the proper knowledge to ensure the health of the tree. We sanitize our tools to prevent the spread of disease from tree to tree. We never use foot spikes to climb a tree that's not being removed as it's unsafe for the tree. We will climb with ropes or use equipment, both of which allow better access to limbs, not just ones at the trunk.
We offer stump grinding for new or existing stumps. We can leave the mulch or remove it for you. Understand that on a large stump there will be a sizable amount of mulch because we grind as deep as possible to ensure customer satisfaction.
