Tree Removal

Removing a tree is usually a last resort and often a necessity as a result of storms. Worthington Valley Landscaping can help determine when it is time to remove a tree. Special care is given when removing trees to ensure that no other trees or structures on the property are damaged.


Tree Pruning

Proper Pruning is very important to maintain or improve the health, appearance and safety of your trees. It also requires experience and an artist's touch. We can work with you on a seasonal pruning schedule to ensure proper growth and health of your trees.

Crown Reduction is a form of pruning. It's often done to reduce the weight on branches which are potential hazards, to balance the shape of a tree and finally to prevent trees from obstructing buildings or homes.

Stump Removal

After a tree has been removed the tree trunk protruding above the surface will be around for quite some time unless it's physically removed.

Reasons to remove a stump:

  • Stumps can be unsightly and potentially hazardous. Tripping and falling over a stump can be dangerous.
  • As a stump dries out, it becomes a haven for both airborne and sub-terrain termites, in addition to ants, roaches and other such pests.
  • A stump may also become a den for possums, squirrels, raccoons, snakes and many such yard-loving creatures.
  • The small cost incurred to remove a tree stump can be a major offset to future property damage or trip and fall injuries.
  • The mulch from the stump grinding can them be used in your garden, flowerbeds, or composted for future use.


Can I burn a stump to remove it?

While this is one option, it's not optimal. Stumps are often set deep in the ground and rarely receive enough oxygen to facilitate a fire that will make a measurable difference. In fact, many times the charcoal stump that remains is impossible to decompose and more difficult to remove.

The only truly effective method of removing stumps is patience and hard work by a professional. Contact us today.
