Wisconsin Tree Removal

Tree Removal Milwaukee Trusts for Safe, High-Quality and Affordable Service

While the focus of our work is on preserving and caring for trees, there are times when it is necessary to remove a tree. The most common reason is when a tree has become diseased or infested by insects.

There are many types of insects and tree diseases which can kill a tree, often in fairly short order. The anthracnose fungus, for instance, has increasingly been devastating deciduous trees around the Milwaukee area. And elm trees are at risk of infestation by the Emerald Ash Borer.

Our certified arborists are trained to spot infestations and tree disease early, when it is still possible to salvage a tree. However, sometimes there is no other option but to remove a tree.

When To Have a Tree Removed

Tree removal

1. The tree has internal damage

Although an affected tree may still have leaves on it and seem to be in good shape, internal damage can easily make it prone to falling over. Often, all it takes is a windstorm or a heavy rain for a tree to come toppling down—a serious concern if the tree is within striking range of your house or driveway.

While we offer emergency tree removal service throughout the Milwaukee area, we highly recommend removing any dead or dying trees before it becomes an emergency situation.

2. The roots are threatening nearby structures

If a tree has become so large its root system is now endangering the foundation of your home, or breaking apart your driveway, removal is your only option.

3. The tree is blocking sunlight

Many homeowners have trees so large their canopies don't allow enough sunlight to reach other plants in the landscaping. Trimming branches often helps, but in most cases the only sure way to allow more light into the yard is to remove the oversized tree.

The Right Equipment For The Job—No Matter How Big

As you can see from the photo above removing large trees is not a job for the neighborhood handyman. We have invested heavily in a fleet of specialty landscaping machinery to ensure the safe and efficient removal of large trees and fallen branches. The technology we have at our disposal, combined with our years of experience, makes Russ's Tree Service Milwaukee's best choice for tree removal jobs.

Our certified arborists safely remove trees of all sizes with minimal impact on the rest of your yard. Usually, the stump is left in the ground—cut as close as to the ground as possible. With evergreens, the tree roots die once the trunk and the needles which provide them fuel are gone.

Stump Grinding and Stump Removal Services

If you want no evidence a tree was ever in your yard, our stump grinding service can take tree stumps down to a depth of about two feet. Covered with fill dirt and grass seed, it won't be long before you can't even tell a tree was there.

In cases where the root of a tree is compromising a driveway, sidewalk or the foundation of a house, you'll likely need to have the entire stump removed. This is also the case when a tree has toppled over and the root ball is exposed. Russ's Tree Service has the heavy-duty equipment necessary to remove even massive stumps.
