Services We Offer in Germantown, MD

Scheduled Tree Health Management

It isn’t easy to spot early signs of tree disease. By the time you notice a problem, it could be too late to save the tree. Professional tree preservation and health management allows a certified arborist to identify all types of disease, insect infestation, or soil deficiencies that could cause trees to die.

When we come to your home for tree and shrub care, we will inspect your property for signs of trouble. We will conduct soil testing to determine if the soil has the right nutrients for your existing trees. Applying the correct fertilizer is only part of the process of our tree services in Germantown, MD.

Where we apply fertilizer greatly impacts the success of your trees. We apply fertilizer at the right time for maximum absorption to ensure your tree has healthy soil and the nutrients it needs.

Our team knows the perfect time of year to fertilize your trees in order to ensure the nutrients reach all the way down to the root system to help your trees thrive and improve root health.

Emergency Tree Removal

Diseased trees die slowly, gradually becoming more brittle over several months. When a severe storm passes through your area, high winds and torrential rain could knock down a weak, diseased tree, creating a safety hazard.

We know how important it is that you know your family is safe during a stressful time. That’s why we provide emergency tree service to keep you and your family safe when a tree falls on your property.

Stump Grinding

The stump left behind after tree removal takes up valuable space in your yard. It can also pose a safety hazard if the root system keeps growing underneath the ground. Stump grinding removes the remaining stump and some of the roots.

After stump grinding, you can refill the hole with mulch or dirt to reclaim that space and enjoy the beauty of your property.

Emergency Tree Service and Storm Damage Clean-up

If a tree falls through your roof, you could end up with serious injuries if you try to remove it yourself. Our team has the experience of removing storm-damaged trees with cranes without causing additional damage.

If a tree splits due to lightning or structural weakness, we can provide cabling and bracing to prevent the tree from dying.

Tree Pruning and Trimming in Germantown

You want to do everything you can to keep your trees healthy, and tree trimming and pruning is a great way to do that. There are different reasons to prune trees, and going overboard could end up causing more harm than good.

Our team can identify trees that could benefit from pruning and walk you through the types of pruning that will provide the best results. We can prune dead and diseased branches, weak areas, or branches that cross with other trees and invite the spread of disease.

  • Hazard Mitigation: Dying or diseased branches could fall unexpectedly and cause injuries. Hazard mitigation pruning removes dangerous branches before they cause a problem.
  • Structural Pruning: Some trees grow in ways that can end up making them too weak to thrive. Structural pruning removes weak branches and promotes strong growth in the coming years.
  • Crown Reshaping: Relaxing under the canopy of your favorite tree is a great way to spend an afternoon. Tree canopies sometimes need a little help to grow to their full potential. We can remove lower limbs to raise the canopy or remove limbs growing too close to buildings and sidewalks, making the area safer.

Lot Clearing

Lot clearing involves more than chopping down every tree in sight. When you contact us for lot clearing service, we will go over the area with you to identify trees you want to keep and trees that will interfere with your construction plans.

Once we know which areas to clear, we remove trees and boulders and level out the ground.

About Germantown, MD

Locals call Germantown  the “cultural capital” of Maryland, and we love taking advantage of all the activities the city has to offer. We visit  Butler’s Orchard to pick strawberries, stroll the sunflowers, or take a sunset yoga class.  Black Rock Center for the Arts  has family movie nights, summer camps for kids, and even hosts Germantown Oktoberfest every year.

Did You Know?

Local laws in Montgomery County require a permit  from a licensed and bonded arborist for tree removal. Attempting tree removal on your own could end up costing you hundreds of dollars in local fines. Riverbend Tree Service has the best interest of our community in mind, and we have the necessary permit to remove trees on your property.

"Riverbend did a great job with removing a tree and installing new sod for my townhouse. Brad was extremely professional, going as far as to leave me his personal cell number if I ever need to reach out for questions on how to properly maintain the new lawn moving forward. Thank you!"
