Tree Trimming

Each cut has the potential to change the growth of a tree so no branch should be removed without reason.

Pruning is commonly done for:

  • Woody’s Tree Service

    Improving tree structure or growth.

  • Woody’s Tree Service

    Accommodating human needs such as clearance.

  • Woody’s Tree Service

    Increasing light penetration.

  • Woody’s Tree Service

    For hazard mitigation.

    Heavy pruning can be significant health stress for the tree.

If people and trees are to coexist in an urban or suburban environment, then at times have to modify the trees. Also because we want trees to complement other landscape plantings and lawns, proper pruning with an understanding of tree biology can maintain good tree health and structure while enhancing the aesthetic and economic values of our landscapes.

When to prune

Most routine pruning to remove weak, diseased, or dead limbs can be accomplished at any time during the year with little effect on the tree. As a rule, growth is maximized, and wound closure is fastest if pruning takes place before the spring growth flush.

Some trees, such as maples and birches, tend to "bleed" if pruned early in the spring which may be unsightly but is of little consequence to the tree. A few tree diseases, such as oak wilt, can be spread when pruning-wounds allow spores access into the tree. Susceptible trees should not be pruned during active transmission periods.

Just after the spring growth flush, when trees spend a great deal of energy to produce foliage and early shoot growth, heavy pruning should be avoided. Removal of a large percentage of foliage at this time can stress the tree.

Tree Removal

Tree removal is not a service we like to emphasize, but it is essential and one that Woody’s Tree Service executes professionally and safely. Our goal is and has always been, to provide services that keep trees healthy, but there are instances when removal is the best alternative for the landscape and homeowner.


Tree removals are performed to eliminate dead and dying trees as well as those that have become hazardous. Removals can also be useful in reducing competition for light and space so that the remaining plants can grow and thrive. In some cases, trees may also be removed to allow for new construction, home additions and to provide clearances with those structures.

Woody's Tree Service

Tree removal is the most dangerous aspect of tree care. Often, tree workers must remove trees growing in confined spaces near houses, utility lines, and other sensitive areas.

Tree removal requires expertise to perform this task successfully. At Woody’s Tree Service, our workers are highly trained to work safely and efficiently in all tree removals. We provide thorough clean-up of debris and strive to minimize the impact on surrounding vegetation.

As part of the tree removal process, the stump will typically be left as close to the ground as possible. If needed, removal of the stump can be provided. Stump removal can be challenging, and often special machinery is required. Stump grinding by a professional is the easiest and safest way to handle this work.

Stump Grinding

Complete Stump Grinding Services

Stump grinding is the best and most economical way of getting rid of your stump below grade. We have several stump grinders ranging in size depending on the size and location of your stump. A stump is not just ugly but also dangerous for your friends and family, and because you know it's dangerous, you stop using that area of your yard. If someone else stumbles on the stump, you could be held liable.

Eliminate Unwanted Tree Stumps

Stumps are difficult to mow around. If it's cut near grade, you may forget, or your lawn service may not notice, causing a warped blade or bending a shaft by hitting the stump. That could be huge money on a big mower. Stumps from some tree species grow back new multiple trunks, re-growing as a bush or shrub requires constant maintenance until finally removed.

Add a Level of Safety to Your Property

Besides a tripping risk or the possibility of damaging lawn equipment, stumps often harbor fungus, insects, and disease. Nature removes stumps by letting them get infected with termites, carpenter ants and other wood destroying insects, fungus, and microbes. While the natural process works wonderfully for the forests, we should try to avoid this around your healthy lawn, trees, and home.

Powerful Tree Stump Grinders

Woody’s Tree Service has stump grinders of various sizes to match the size and location of the stump you need to be removed, and the experience and expertise ensure it is accomplished with a minimum of disruption to the rest of your landscape. Stump grinding is the best and most economical way to get rid of your stump below grade, resolving the issue in a day instead of weeks, months or years required for other methods.
