Our Tree Care Services

Tree Removal and Stump Grinding

Sometimes trees develop weaknesses in structure or lose strength and vitality after suffering a blight or pest infestation. They can grow too big for the property or interfere with buildings, sidewalks, or power lines. Trees sometimes grow too close together and compete for resources. When these issues arise, tree removal is sometimes the best option.

One of our certified arborists will inspect the trees on your property to develop a tree removal plan for specimens that can’t benefit from cabling and bracing or other tree preservation and management strategies. At Riverbend Tree Service, we offer several tree removal options, including:

  • Large tree removal with a crane
  • Hazardous tree removal
  • Stump grinding

We offer stump grinding as an add-on service to tree removal. Leaving stumps behind can attract diseases and pests, create a hazard to people and equipment in a yard, and allow a tree to regrow from the stump. We’ll grind down the stump and surface roots, then fill the hole with the shavings.

Tree Pruning and Trimming

Tree trimming is necessary to maintain tree health and beauty. Our tree services in Great Falls, VA, includes assessing the trees on your property to determine if you need structural pruning, property protection pruning, or hazard mitigation pruning. Our tree trimming methods include:

  • Crown cleaning. We’ll look for weak, crossing, dead, or dying branches and remove them to reduce the risk to the tree from pests and diseases.
  • Crown raising. We’ll trim low-hanging limbs that pose a danger to pedestrians or structures under the tree to improve ground clearance.
  • Crown reduction or shaping. We’ll give the tree a haircut and crop the canopy by shortening limbs to reduce the size and height of the canopy and improve the shape.
  • Hazardous tree pruning. We can address immediate concerns for hazard mitigation, including trees damaged by wind, snow, ice, fire, or lightning.

We’ll assess your trees and determine the best method to address each tree’s concerns effectively with the right tree pruning method.

Tree Health Management

Ask about our tree health management programs if you want to beautify and strengthen your trees. Our TRAQ-certified arborist will inspect your trees, perform a Tree Risk Assessment, and take soil samples to develop a custom tree preservation and management plan for tree and shrub care around your property.


We’ll get soil tests from your property to measure the pH, nutrients, composition, and other factors in your soil, then create a custom fertilization plan, including fertilizer, soil amendments, and scheduled applications.

Insect Pests and Diseases

Many species of diseases, fungi, and insects love Northern Virginia tree species, including:

  • Spider mites
  • Boxwood blight
  • Scale insects
  • Fireblight
  • Leaf-eating caterpillars
  • Aphids
  • Cicadas
  • Apple scab

If you notice signs of poor health in your trees and shrubs, contact us as soon as possible. We can identify the cause and apply targeted treatments of pesticides, fungicides, or horticultural oils to treat certain conditions and prevent re-infection of your trees in the future.

Root Health Management

We developed a root rejuvenation program to target root health, including soil aeration, loosening soil compaction, and improving water and nutrients absorption rate through the roots.

Emergency Tree Service and Storm Damage Clean-Up

Fallen or storm-damaged trees can be unstable and dangerous to attempt to remove on your own. Removing storm-damaged trees requires professional training and safety equipment during storm damage clean-up. Our emergency tree service professionals can manage emergency tree removal with safety harnesses, leads, bucket trucks, and cranes. Contact us for emergency tree removal.
