Tree Removal

Port Orchard & Gig Harbor tree removal

Whether a tree needs to be removed because it’s a hazard, causing an obstruction or for aesthetic reasons; Northwest Tree Service has the equipment and experience for all types of tree removal. We love trees and preservation is our priority but sustainable tree care and forest stewardship sometimes means that a tree will become a candidate for removal.

From massive Fir trees to small shrubs, there’s no job too big or too small.  With over 35 years in business in Port Orchard and Gig Harbor we have the experience needed to get the job done safely. Tree removal is no easy task and best left to professionals who utilize proper equipment and safety standards.

When is tree removal necessary?

  • If you have a tree that’s diseased, it’s important to have it removed as soon as possible so the disease doesn’t spread. 

  • If you have a tree that’s dead or dying, it can pose a threat to your home or property.

  • If a tree is causing an obstruction that is impossible to correct through pruning, removal may be the only option.

  • If a tree is crowding and causing harm to other trees, it’s better to lose one so the others will be healthy.

  • If a tree is becoming a hazard by growing too close to your home or building and causing structural damage, like cracks in the foundation.

Experienced and skilled in tree removals

Our experienced climbers are skilled in the removal of all sized trees, which can be a difficult and dangerous job. 

Situations where there is limited access, trees with extreme decay or those near utility lines can pose extra challenges, which is why tree removal should only be done by professionals.


Tree Pruning

 Port Orchard & Gig tree pruning services

Can you see some sky through your trees? When the canopy of your trees is dense, the wind can’t blow through them and that wind resistance causes them to break or even bring down the entire tree. 

All it takes is one of our famous northwest storms to blow in and put your home and family in danger from falling branches.

Whether the trees around your home are growing out of control and becoming a safety issue or you just want to keep them healthy, Northwest Tree Service offers all kinds of tree pruning services to Port Orchard and the Gig Harbor communities, from Belfair to Tacoma.

Why have your trees pruned?

  • Improves their overall health

  • Makes them structurally stronger

  • Eliminate potential hazards

  • Decrease chance of storm damage

Trimming can reduce potential hazards

Without regular tree trimming, tree limbs will grow beyond their proper length and can come into contact with power lines.  This can cause all sorts of electrical problems, including outages, power surges, electrical spikes and fires.

These wayward branches and limbs can also weaken over time, which makes them more susceptible to breaking and possibly falling on a person or car passing by, even your home.

In addition to the potential injury they can cause, they can also be a liability to you – a headache you most definitely don’t want.  To keep everyone safe and reduce your chances of an unexpected accident, call for your free estimate on tree trimming.


Tree Maintenance & Trimming

Port Orchard & Gig Harbor Tree Maintenance

Did you know the tops of your trees can act as a wind trap? It happens quite often and the result may be a tree falling on your house or car, which can lead to extensive damage.

You can decrease your chances of a tree falling or large branch breaking during one of our famous NW storms if you contact Northwest Tree Service for preventative tree maintenance.

What’s tree maintenance?

Also called preventative maintenance, preventative pruning or structural pruning, it covers a range of tree thinning services such as crown cleaning or crown reduction and may include one or all of the following:

  • Removal of small branches to allow wind to pass through and sunlight to reach all branches

  • Trimming or removing weak, dead or decayed branches

  • Trimming to decrease surface area of lateral branches to lessen wind resistance

All the items above reduce the likelihood of branches breaking or a tree toppling in a storm or high wind situation. Trees are wondrous and built to adjust to most things but sometimes Mother Nature delivers a whopper they just can’t compensate for and that’s when damage occurs.

That’s where preventative pruning comes in as it’s not only good for the trees, it also gives you peace of mind. You’ll feel better knowing you did what you could to keep your family safe while reducing potential damage to your home and property. Can you see that spending a little money now on your trees can save you a lot later on?

Do my trees pose a hazard?

Many people think there’s a connection between the size of a tree and the hazard it poses but it’s the health of the tree that factors into whether or not it may be a potential hazard.

So, like humans, trees need ongoing care to keep them healthy as a healthy tree is a strong tree. That means the right watering, mulching, fertilizing and pruning for its entire life.


Stump Grinding Services

Port Orchard & Gig Harbor Stump Grinding

Once a tree has been felled and removed from your property, you will discover a small portion of the tree stem with the roots attached still in the ground. This is the tree stump and you may wonder what to do with the stump that is left in the ground after tree removal.

Northwest Tree Service offers professional stump grinding services throughout the Port Orchard & Gig Harbor.

In most tree removal cases, roots from the stump will begin to die off within days of the tree being cut down.

Although for some species of trees, a stump that is left behind becomes fertile ground for new growth from the old tree. This can quickly become a landscaping nightmare for some.

New growth can sprout outward from the tree stump for several feet when left untreated. If you want the area repopulated from the old root system, it may be a good idea to leave the stump in the ground.

Big or Small this Machine will do it all !

Should you decide to landscape the area where the old tree stood, you will need to decide what to do with the old stump.

Northwest Tree Service professionally and safely removes old tree stumps and prepares the ground for new landscaping.
