The safe removal of dead tree branches is called "dead wooding."

The need for dead wooding is obvious—and not so obvious: dead wood is at risk for breaking off from a live tree. Should the fall of dead wood damage your property or a neighbor's, repairs could be costly—even if lawyers are not brought in! Harming a pet or a person is also a tragic possibility.

Dead wood is also less resistant than live wood to pests and disease that could be fatal to the entire tree.

Speedy removal of dead wood is prudent—and prudently left to experts! At ShadyTree, we remove dead wood safely and with minimal risk to property and careful attention to tree preservation. The removal of large branches requires not only special equipment, including safety harnesses, but also expertise and experience.
