What is Tree Removal?

Updated: Jan 31

Navigating tree removal in Colorado doesn't have to be complex. At Evolve Tree Experts, we're all about making things clear and straightforward, just like we'd want for ourselves. Tree removal is more than just cutting down a tree; it's a careful process tailored to each unique tree and situation, especially in a place as diverse as Colorado.

What is Tree Removal

So, What Exactly is Tree Removal?

Let's break it down: Tree removal is the process of safely taking down a tree that's no longer needed, safe, or healthy. It's a bit like removing an old structure with care and precision. This involves everything from deciding the best way to remove the tree without causing harm to anything around it, to actually cutting it down, piece by piece if necessary. We then take away the tree and clean up the area, leaving your space clear and safe. Whether it's due to safety concerns, health issues of the tree, or just making room for new growth, tree removal is all about carefully removing the tree and ensuring everything around it stays just as it should be.

How We Remove Trees

At Evolve Tree Experts, our process is thorough and considerate of both the environment and your property. We start by assessing the tree's condition and its surroundings, planning the safest and most efficient removal strategy. Our team is equipped to handle different tree species with the right techniques, whether it's a Cottonwood needing special handling due to its size or an Aspen requiring a careful approach due to its root systems.

Why Tree Removal is Sometimes Necessary

In our beautiful state, trees add to our landscapes but sometimes need to be removed, whether they're posing safety risks, are affected by diseases, or are in the way of new developments. From the towering Cottonwoods and Aspens to the Hackberries and Elms, each tree type brings its own challenges in removal, influenced by factors like local pests and diseases.

Different Strokes: Tailored Approaches for Diverse Tree Species

In tree removal, one size does not fit all. Each tree species presents its own set of challenges, demanding unique strategies and preparations. Here's how we approach some of the common trees in Denver:

Cottonwood Trees: Known for their massive size, Cottonwoods often develop hollow areas as they age. Before removal, we conduct thorough inspections to determine the extent of hollowing. If the tree is significantly hollow, we bring in heavier machinery and use advanced rigging techniques to ensure stability during the removal process.

Aspen Trees: Aspens have a unique clonal root system, where a single organism can appear as multiple trees. Removal requires careful planning to prevent undue stress on the interconnected trees. The soil condition and root network are key factors in determining our approach, often leading us to use more precise, less invasive equipment.

Maple Trees: Maple trees, particularly older ones, can have dense, hard wood. We prepare with sharp, heavy-duty cutting equipment to efficiently handle the robust wood. Additionally, checking for any signs of disease, like Verticillium wilt, is crucial, as it can affect the structural integrity of the tree.

Elm Trees: With Elms, especially those affected by Dutch Elm Disease, we take measures to prevent disease spread during removal. This includes using sterilized equipment and carefully disposing of infected wood. The branching structure of Elms also requires meticulous planning for safe limb removal and descent.

These are just some examples, but each tree species in Denver requires a thoughtful, customized approach, combining our arboricultural knowledge with practical strategies to ensure safe and efficient removal. At Evolve Tree Experts, we stay informed by the latest research in tree pathology and urban forestry, which guides our practices and decision-making. 

Our extensive array of ropes, rigging equipment, and specialized machinery equips us to adeptly handle the unique challenges presented by each type of tree. This comprehensive toolkit, combined with our commitment to professionalism and environmental consideration, is what makes us the right choice for any tree removal task.

Be it a towering Cottonwood or a delicate Aspen, we are prepared for all kinds of removal scenarios, ensuring safety, efficiency, and the highest standards of service for our clients.

Preventing Problems Before They Start

A big part of our job is stopping issues before they even happen. Regular tree care like pruning, keeping an eye out for pests, and checking the health of your trees can sometimes mean we don't have to remove them at all.
