Frequently Asked Questions

If you are looking to clear land or space, you may need to hire a land clearing contractor. Here at Christianson Tree Experts Co., we are proud to offer demolition services to help clear your land. We can help to break up old concrete surfaces, such as patios, remove large rocks and boulders, clear out old trees and stumps, get rid of old storage sheds and/or level land. All of these land clearing services help to create a space that allows you to transfer an old, unusable space into one that can be built or planted on.

At Christianson Tree Experts, we still recommend that you work with a professional to ensure everything is done properly. You’ll need the right power drill, as well as potassium nitrate. Going to try to burn the stump on your own? At a minimum, talk to the local fire department. The last thing you want to do is miss safety precautions that lead to an out-of-control blaze.

Let’s be frank: some trees are purely irritating. They may be healthy, but they could merely be a nuisance. This could be because they shed fruit or seeds. It could also be because the wood is weak and, therefore, there is a high chance that it is going to break. Of course, you may need the trees to be removed from your land because you require the area for other purposes.

Sadly, there are sometimes healthy trees that experience simply unavoidable damage. This could be severe weather as well as accidental contact with a vehicle or animal damage. In such a case, you should not only remove the tree. You need to consult experts so that they can assess the situation and help you to make an informed decision. After all, there could be the possibility that the tree may recover.

Tree removal services could save your property from serious harm in many ways. Make sure you get in touch with a local tree expert if your tree has become a risk, a hazard, or a severe inconvenience. Here are some ways in which removing a tree can save your property.

There are plenty of signs to help you determine whether or not you should get your tree removed. Whatever the reason, Christianson Tree Experts will inspect each element of a tree to determine whether it needs removal. If it does, we will promptly remove it using the industry-standard equipment and precautions.
