How Excavation Helps With Tree Removal

To finish up any yard renovation, it must be nice and even. Our team at Groundhog Property Services ensures the use of the finest quality heavy equipment to ensure that your backyard is leveled, clean, and gorgeous. We ensure solid foundation work for a brilliant landscape and keep a portable trencher and mini-excavator on us at all times, along with other equipment needed to take care of the landscape, excavate, and fill the backyard.

Of course, we keep a lookout for buried utilities. Each point of concern is efficiently marked until our skilled handymen start to dig. Moreover, we try to plan your backyard excavation on days when the weather is favorable. Even though the weather forecast can sometimes be unpredictable, dry summer days are the best for this process.

Why Tree Cutting & Removal Is Important

Trees are an essential part of residential and commercial properties. In fact, the older a tree, the more carbon it can absorb from the surrounding atmosphere. According to research conducted, 70 percent of the carbon found in trees usually gets absorbed during the latter half of their lives. That being said, there is no denying that as trees grow and evolve.

We can help modify an old tree into something stylish and something that makes you fall in love. However, sometimes trees can become a hazard to your property, as well as your family and pedestrians.

There have been numerous instances of trees landing on people, electrical poles, passing vehicles, and even homes. This is extremely dangerous as it causes loads of damage and may even result in death.

To ensure that you and the people around you are safe at all times, our team at Groundhog Property Services will first inspect the tree in your backyard and then proceed with a cutting or removal plan that supports your property needs.

Why Tree Stump Removal Is Important

Tree removal may sound simple, but it is a complicated process that requires time and skills. Our team at Groundhog Property Services is backed with expertise with top-notch technical knowledge to ensure that when a tree is removed from your backyard, no stump is left behind. Even though some homeowners do not mind stumps, we would not recommend this. Here’s why:

  • Tree stumps can result in accidents
  • Leftover stumps do not allow tree regrowth.
  • Stumps do not contribute to the beauty of the yard. In fact, they can look unattractive.
  • Tree stumps cause pest infestations.

When stumps are not removed, they cause the surrounding plants the decay as they are attacked with infections and diseases.

Even though stump removal requires a simple digging technique so that the roots of the trees are cut, it is recommended to use special tools and equipment. Sometimes, stumps are so hard that they can cause injuries. However, with the machinery and tools that we have, we ensure thorough work so that your backyard is safe for your children and pets.
