Our Bethesda, MD Tree Services

Tree Removal and Stump Grinding

Whether your trees deteriorate due to infection, or you want to create more open space on your property, we can help. Call Riverbend Tree Service whenever you need to remove unsightly trees from your property. Our arborists will inspect your trees and see if it's possible to preserve them or if removal is the best option.

From there, we'll create a plan to safely take them down without impacting nearby homes or structures. We offer professional stump grinding as an add-on service to reduce the possibility of regrowth and prevent other issues for healthy trees nearby. We use powerful equipment to grind the stump and penetrate the surface roots, then fill the hole with the shavings.

We recommend stump grinding after every tree removal for several reasons, including:

  • The remaining stumps attract pests and infectious diseases to the surrounding trees
  • Tree stumps are a tripping hazard and can damage lawn equipment
  • Stump removal makes your yard appear cleaner and well-maintained

Tree Health Management

Our certified arborists know the proper techniques for tree preservation and management. Give us a call to set up a professional consultation if you have concerns about the trees on your property. An ISA-certified arborist will inspect your vegetation and test the soil to assess your fertilization needs.

From there, we'll create a custom solution that supports root health by supplementing your soil with the right minerals and nutrients. Our tree and shrub care doesn't stop there. If you have a tree with vulnerable limbs, we can keep the top structure steady with professional tree cabling and bracing.

Tree Trimming and Pruning

Tree pruning is one of our most popular and important services. Schedule routine tree trimming services to maintain healthy tree growth and keep your landscaping visually appealing. Our crew knows the correct technique for cutting branches for a stronger, more beautiful shape without compromising the tree's overall health.

We specialize in structural pruning to keep your tree looking full and strong. Our main goal with this service is to give your tree a nice, clean shape by removing dead limbs and promoting a proper growth pattern. We also offer property protection pruning if you have low-hanging branches that are a potential hazard.

Property protection pruning primarily focuses on trimming any limbs that threaten the safety of your home or business. Let us minimize prospective tree damage in the future by removing these vulnerable branches now.

Severe weather can leave a destructive path behind it that is too dangerous for you to clean up on your own.

Mother Nature can knock trees onto power lines, yards, and houses, but we are experts in hazard mitigation and will clear all debris quickly.

If you're nervous that a tree could topple during severe weather, contact us for emergency tree removal. We'll assess the risk and safely get rid of the tree or unstable limbs, so they don’t harm your property in the future. Call our emergency hotline at (703)-844-3886 to request immediate service.
