Though trees enhance and improve our lives in many ways, it is sometimes necessary to remove them. There are a variety of reasons to remove a tree; decay, weather damage, disease, structural failure, poor location, the health of surrounding trees, etc. While we prefer to preserve and restore, our crew has extensive experience taking trees down in nearly any environment or on any terrain.
We have very skilled climbers, as well as two state of the art man lifts that assist in our removal process. The taller of the two lifts reaches above 90 feet and is only 44 inches wide. It is self propelled on tracks, uses vegetable hydraulic fluid, and has a battery life of 4-6 hours. These features allow the machine to fit through most gates and doorways, as well as operate indoors with zero emissions for the life of the battery with minimal impact to the surface it is being driven across.
Pruning & Restoration of Trees
There is no tree too big or small for our crew to prune; be it an evergreen, deciduous, fruit, or ornamental.The variety of services we offer include:
Crown cleaning is the removal of dead, dying and damaged limbs. Crown thinning enhances limb structure by removing unnecessary crossing or repeating branches, this allows more light and wind to pass through the trees. Crown raising removes the lower branches. Crown restoration helps improve the structure and appearance of the trees. Crown clearing involves pruning branches away from a home, structure or sidewalk. Crown reduction pruning decreases the height and spread of the tree.
Take a small step that will make an enormous difference. Whether we're taking a tree down for you today, or you've had one removed in the past- stumps are unavoidable. If your stump is located in an inopportune place it can be unsightly and inconvenient. Our professional stump grinder can eliminate this problem. The stump grinder can fit through a 40 inch gate and is self propelled, minimizing the impact to your lawn. In addition to the stump, surface roots can be ground to make way for replanting a tree, fresh turf, a flower bed, etc. Call today to schedule a consultation!
Shrub & Hedge Removal
Shrubs and hedges can be beautiful features in your landscape. Unfortunately, they can decline with age or become diseased. When a shrub/hedge cannot be restored, we step in to remove it. Perhaps you'd like to replant after the removal? The Eager Beaver crew can make that a snap by grinding the root area, leaving a clean slate for you to work with.
The Greater Skagit Valley is blessed with breathtaking natural beauty. Many homeowners enjoy a priceless view and many others could have the same with some selective trimming. Selective view trimming and windowing can provide you with added enjoyment as well as enhance the value of your property, while maintaining the integrity and health of your trees.
Hazard & Storm Damaged Trees
Mother Nature can be unkind to your trees. As we are accustomed to, Washington weather can change in a near instant. Having damaged trees is not ideal in any weather, they are dangerous and can really hurt your pocketbook if/when they fail. It is best to have your concerns assessed and addressed before storm season arrives, eliminating as much risk as possible. Hazard signs to watch for are: dead or rapidly declining trees, multiple trunks with seams or decay pockets, leaning (especially towards structures), and breathing at the roots. It is imperative to have symptoms like these looked at.
Should a tree fail before you notice a problem, or a heavy storm surprises us, Eager Beaver Tree Service has the experience and equipment necessary to remove fallen trees from nearly any structure. You can improve the health of your trees year round by removing dead limbs, crown cleaning, restoration, and other services as needed.
