    Disaster Response Services

    Emergency Tree Service

    24/7 Emergency tree service available to deploy following storms. Fallen trees present risks to people and property. A large tree can weigh several tons, and when it falls onto a structure, it creates an unstable situation. Our team is specially trained to deal with these types of tree removal scenarios.

    Disaster Pre-planning & Staging

    Get ready for pending storms or the upcoming hurricane season. Pre-planning disaster preparedness with our team will position you to receive priority response when the storm hits. We also take a proactive approach toward preventative trimming to minimize damage risk once the storm hits.

    Stumps Leaners & Hangers Removal

    We work with FEMA and local authorities through disaster recovery contracts to coordinate the survey and removal of stumps and hazardous trees (leaners & hangers). Leaners are trees that are leaning precariously and put people or property at risk. Hangers are limbs that hang dangerously at risk of falling.

    Storm Damage Cleanup

    High winds, snow and ice put damaging pressure on trees, causing many to topple during severe weather. Dead branches, limbs and entire trees can be scattered across your property. Our storm damage cleanup teams will visit your property, assess cleanup requirements and deploy a team to remove downed trees, limbs and debris.

    Insurance Claims Experts

    It’s not uncommon for our emergency tree services to be covered by insurance policies. Should your property include claimable damage, our team will help you navigate the claims process providing documentation and working with our team of third-party public adjusters.

    Do you remove trees from structures?

    Yes! In fact, that’s one of the main things we specialize in. Our team is uniquely trained to remove a tree that fell on your home, commercial building or other structure. We take great care to safely remove the tree while minimizing damage done to the structure itself. We can also arrange to have the structure sealed, so it’s water tight until permanent repairs can be arranged.
