JL Tree Service Inc provides many Services

Tree Removal includes removing a dead, dying, hazardous, storm damaged, or improper located tree from your property. Generally all the wood and debris are hauled away using a chipper and flatbed, however, sometimes home owners request to keep the wood for firewood.

Tree Pruning & Trimming includes using ANSI standard methods to properly prune your trees. There are 4 main types of tree pruning. Crown cleaning is pruning out the deadwood or diseased limbs in the canopy. Crown thinning is lightly pruning out the interior limbs, crossing and rubbing limbs in the canopy. This is usually done to increase light in the yard for grass, and help wind to better flow through the canopy to decrease the chances of storm damage. Crown Raising is elevating the low limbs to provide clearance for many reasons and increase visibility. Crown Reduction is lightly thinning out the top of a tree to reduce the overall height and size of the top of the canopy – this does not include topping.

Stump Removal includes using a stump machine to grind out a stump. This can be an existing stump or from a tree removal. There is usually an extra charge to haul the stump grindings away, most of the time the stump grindings are backfilled in the hole. Most of the time, where a stump was ground out, another tree can be planted in the same hole.

Crane Rental Service includes renting our operator and cranes for tasks such as A/C units, setting trusses for new homes, lifting compressors or generators, etc.

Mulch Supply includes organic quality double shredded mulch. We process all of our tree and wood material that we take away from our customers properties. Our mulch is top quality since there is no dirt, stumps, or trash in the product.
