Low-Impact Tree Removal

At Cutting Edge Tree Services, we specialize in low-impact tree removal services. We carefully fell or disassemble trees in an efficient and controlled manner. We can handle difficult and dangerous tree removals in all areas and conditions, using a tracklift, aerial bucket truck or tree climbers as needed. Crane service is also available.

In order to lower the impact on the surrounding landscape, we use equipment designed to be surface-friendly to minimize or eliminate turf damage and soil compaction issues. Our surface friendly Easy Lift is a lightweight, compact and self-propelled man lift. The Easy Lift is designed to enter difficult to reach areas. In is compact form, it's only 6 ft 6 inches tall and 34 1/2" inches wide, but with the outriggers deployed will reach heights up to 70 ft. With a lateral width out to 36 ft, the Easy Lift sometimes referred to as a spider lift is a game changer for our company's future and the tree care industry as a whole.

When the job does call for traditional aerial bucket trucks, we may use several Alturnamats to create a surface friendly path across the lawn. These track mats allow us to travel across turf without leaving ruts. Our surface friendly articulated compact wheel loaders allow us to turn on the lawn without tearing it up when hauling logs and trunk material off site. Unlike skid loaders, the machines we use pivot in the center and when equipped with turf tires, they really do become surface friendly.

Our crew is also trained in advanced tree rigging techniques using natural and false crotch rigging methods. By lifting and lowering cut limbs in an efficient and controlled manner, we can take down any tree regardless of the size and surrounding obstacles without damaging your property. Buildings, patios and play structures are all examples of high value fixed objects we work around every day. Sometimes a home may have too many of these landscape features to access with a bucket truck or track lift and that's where our expert tree climbing arborists come in, using the latest climbing techniques to safely take the tree down from the inside out. Whatever the job, Cutting Edge Tree Services can complete your tree removal with complete clean-up all in the same day! Make sure to check out our photo gallery to see us in action.

The Whole Job Was a Success

The whole job was a success to me, from the removing of the trees, the stumps, filling in with dirt, planting of the new tree, trimming the other tree to the cleanup. You did an amazing job, and in record time. You have a hard working crew.
