Q: Will grinding a stump remove it completely?
A: Yes. We grind large and small stumps to around 12-14” below ground and backfill with mulch and topsoil. If you are building or landscaping on an area with stumps, we can also remove the root ball to guarantee no re-growth.
Q: Why should I use a certified Arborist instead of a gardener?
A: Arborists are specially trained in up-to-date removal techniques, necessary safety protocols, and tree and woody plant care. We use professional-grade equipment, including climbing ropes, flip lines, harnesses and friction hitches to access trees for removal and maintenance. Our arborists are knowledgeable in current industry practices and standards—when you choose Harry Walker Tree Services, you're getting the best tree care available at a reasonable price!
Q: What happens to the trees you cut down?
A: As part of our tree removal service, our team grinds trunks, branches and stumps, recycling all debris into woodchips and eco-friendly garden mulch. Keep your mulch for landscaping or let us take it away for use in gardens, parks and green projects.
Q: How can I tell if a tree is going to fall?
A: Holes, deep grooves and missing bark are all visible signs of a sick tree. You may also notice mushrooms or other fungi growing near the base of the tree, indicating possible root rot. Tight branch growth and unseasonal leaf loss are other indicators. When you notice a problem with your trees, call us for an assessment. We can provide expert advice and our no-obligation quotes are free of charge.
Q: How long does it take to cut down a tree?
A: On average, most trees can be cut down within two hours. Your quote includes a safety inspection, allowing us to prepare the job and start immediately upon arrival!
Q: Do I need council approval to remove branches?
A: In most cases, dead or damaged limbs may be pruned without approval. When thinning the canopy, no more than 15% of live foliage may be removed without council consent. You must also check that your trees are not home to native animals. We can advise you on local regulations that may affect your project to ensure we work safely and legally.
