Do I need to be home when the work is done?
It is not necessary for our customers to be home at the time of work. We make sure no work is started until we have gone over the job in full with our clients and they have a full understanding of the job and have given us approval to move forward.
What can I expect my yard to look like?
This will depend on what type of service a customer has inquired about. However, as a rule we like to leave our customers yards clean and free of job debris. If stump grinding is one of the services desired, a customer can expect to find a mound of earth and ground root at the site of the removed tree. We leave this mound higher than the grade around for settling purposes. Throughout the months following the service, the shavings will start to decay and the soil will pack down leaving the ground level. If we did not do this our customers would find a large depression in their yard months after the work is complete.
Will the ground be ready to plant grass after the tree removal process?
Generally, the soil around where a tree once stood is very acidic and can be a challenge to grow grass in the first year. If it is the customers desire to create a lawn where a tree or trees are being removed we can removed the root shavings and dirt from the stump area upon request, but recommend the customer to fill the area with a quality topsoil in a mounded fashion at the site to allow for settling or hiring a landscape professional. Also remember the soil that was not disturbed by the stump grinding will still be acidic and you may see patchy grass growth the first year.
Do you cut wood into firewood?
We are happy to provide the service of cutting wood into firewood lengths of 16”, 18” or various lengths upon request. However, we do not split the wood into cords.
