Traditional Removal

Traditional Removal

A traditional removal is the most common method for removing a dead or unwanted tree. The tree must be safe enough for a specialist to climb for this method to be used. If the tree is addressed and dealt with quickly after it starts to decay, then it may be climbable. A saddle, and ropes are used to manually climb the tree, and the professional is always securely attached to the tree as he climbs. If the tree has room, and the job site allows it, they may let the branches fall directly to the ground, or roping will be done with a groundsman to ensure the limbs and debris to not hit surroundings present. When the tree is stripped of all branches, the trunk will then be cut into manageable pieces that will be lowered to the ground safely and controlled.

Crane Removal

Crane Removal

Removing trees with a crane has become a widely popular method that proves to be safe, and efficient. Using a crane to remove large trees, or those that are located in hard to reach areas greatly reduces risk, and impact to surroundings. Some trees are too large to do traditionally, and must be done with a crane. We will address the tree appropriately and decide what size of crane needs to be used due to size, and the distance to the tree. If you have a tree that is located close to your home, or service wires, a crane is a great way to ensure both of those remain untouched, and undamaged. A crane is a specialized piece of equipment, and requires lots of skill and training. Our team of professionals have years of experience, and are trained extremely well. Road closure permits may also be a key element to your project, and we handle this process to ensure a safe procedure occurs.

  • We use our cranes to provide a no impact tree removal

Stump Grinding & Removal

Stump Grinding & Removal

Grinding and removing a stump from your yard is not an aspect you should overlook. There are many advantages to removing a stump that may eliminate future issues. Tree stumps can often be a nuisance, and often get in the way when mowing or planning a new landscaping project. Leaving a stump unattended will allow it to generate growth of smaller trees around it, and these trees may strip other plants of nutrients and growth. Safety is a huge element, and stumps often create hazards and cause may people to trip or stumble over them. The most major concern a stump creates, is pests and fungi. Insects love to make home and infest tree stumps, and decaying stumps attract ants, beetles, and termites. Sorenson Tree Service offers stump grinding and removal, whether we removed your tree or someone else did in the past. We offer this as separate service, and many members of our team are skilled and trained to professionally remove your stump. If a stump isn't accessible, we do have herbicide options available.

We can:
 

  • Have your underground utility lines marked, per Minnesota law
  • Grind both the stump and associated large roots
  • Clean up any debris that's left behind

Alternatives

Alternatives

There are many alternatives that we may be able to provide to save your tree from completely removing it. One option is a cabling support system that can be installed to a damaged tree, to shape and repair it. This dynamic bracing system is installed in the upper canopy of a tree, and allows for shaping and shock absorption. If your tree has a split or crack, we often recommend installing a cabling support system. Another alternative to saving a dying tree, is plant healthcare. The most common is emerald ash borer trunk injections. These injections kill EAB infestations and may save your dying ash tree, which saves you from having to fully remove a once healthy tree. Pleas see our Plant Healthcare page for more information on EAB and other treatments.
