Does Your Tree Need To Come Down?

Whenever you’re concerned about a tree on your property, it is important to get an expert opinion. Sometimes ailing trees can’t be saved and must be taken down for your safety – but in other cases trees which look like they are struggling simply need a little extra care.
When you work with Sox & Freeman you’ll receive expert advice from our ISA-certified arborists on whether or not your tree needs to go, and if so, we will take it down without impacting your property. If your tree is safe to remain standing, our arborists may make recommendations for plant health care, pruning, or cable and bracing solutions.


What To Expect From Our Tree Removal Service


On-site Consultation

Each tree removal begins with a thorough assessment of the tree where we will determine if removal is the only safe option available. If the tree needs to be taken down, your arborist will provide you with a plan of action for safely removing the problem tree.


Site Preparation and Tree Removal

We will assist you in preparing your property for the tree cutting process, ensuring that all necessary steps have been taken to protect your home and landscaping. Depending on the size and type of tree we use a variety of different tools and methods for tree removal.


Post-Tree Removal Cleanup

The job doesn’t stop just because your tree is no longer standing. When you choose Sox & Freeman nothing will be left behind for you to deal with – no piles of limbs or mounds of mulch! Your yard will be left as we found it!
