When it comes to removing trees, there are certain considerations that must be taken into account. Old Town Tree & Landscaping LLC specializes in providing high-quality tree care and customer satisfaction. We understand that trees must be removed for many different reasons, such as when they exceed the allotted area and become too difficult to manage, when they need to be authorized for new construction, or when they are dead, dying, or sick. No tree is too big or too small for us to safely remove.
When the certified arborist recommends tree removal and approves it through a permit, the permit holder will provide a list of suitable trees and shrubs and a landscape plan to replace the removed vegetation to the inspector or local government official for review and approval before issuing the permit. Selective thinning according to specifications or the removal of unsightly vegetation on an individual basis will be allowed to improve the health and growth of the best trees or eliminate road hazards, if recommended by the certified arborist who supervises the work and is approved by the department or a local government official.
