Urban Timber Tree Service - Tree Removal and Tree Trimming Services - Portland Oregon 97202

Our tree service specialties include (ask about price reductions for down-only work):

Tree Pruning: Pruning improves and maintains the overall health, aesthetic and safety of your tree. Through pruning Urban Timber removes limbs that interfere with windows, gutters, roofs and chimneys as well as limbs posing potential damage during a storm. We also remove limbs that are diseased or insect infested. Pruning promotes the natural growth habits of your tree.

Tree Removal: In many situations tree removal is unfortunately necessary. Tree removal is warranted when trees are dead, dying, diseased, hazardous or non-native and threatening the health of other natives. Other reasons for tree removal include selective thinning, conflict with landscape and poor location. If you are unsure about you tree’s condition, it is best to consult an arborist before making a decision.

Stump Grinding: This is the process of grinding a tree stump up to 18″ below ground level as well as grinding all visible surface roots. This eliminates the possibility of regrowth and allows for re-planting.

Tree Cabling: This is the practice of tethering two or more limbs/leaders together. This practice is NOT to keep unhealthy trees from falling apart, but to assist healthy and sometimes oddly shaped trees to resist the stresses of extreme weather.

Hedge Shaping/Trimming: We will shape up and beautify all the shrubs around you home.
