Our Oakton, VA Tree Services

Tree Removal and Stump Grinding in Oakton

Although the Fairfax County government urges residents to prioritize tree preservation over tree removal, you must sometimes remove a tree from the property rather than seek cabling and bracing services. Dead or dying trees can pose a risk to people and building structures. We offer the following tree-removal techniques:

  • Tree removal with a crane: Sometimes, we remove massive trees. These trees often require heavy equipment such as cranes to fell the tree safely.
  • Removing storm-damaged trees: Powerful storms can weaken damaged or sick trees. Our team will promptly arrive following a storm to assess and remove dangerous specimens.
  • Stump grinding: After we fell a tree, a stump remains jutting out of the ground. We’ll grind the stump and remove the dead wood to discourage fungi and pest infestations.

Tree Pruning

You probably know tree trimming and tree pruning are essential to tree health and longevity. However, many of our clients don't realize they can damage the tree using bad pruning techniques. Our arborists employ the following methods to encourage health, stability, and growth:

  • Hazard mitigation: Also referred to as property protection pruning, hazard mitigation eliminates potentially dangerous limbs that could fall and injure people or damage property.
  • Crown raising: Some trees grow low-hanging branches that swipe people and cars. We keep removing these unruly limbs and raising the tree's crown.
  • Crown cleaning: Too many limbs can crowd the trunk and compete for nutrients. We clean up the crown by eliminating excess limbs. The remaining branches can access much-needed nutrients, water, and sunlight.
  • Crown shaping: Do you want your trees to look lush and uniform? We’ll shape each tree to look stylish and full.
  • Structural pruning: This pruning technique protects the tree’s structure. Sometimes, limbs put pressure on the trunk, threatening the entire tree. We identify and eliminate those limbs.

Tree Health Management

Tree preservation and management involve all other aspects of managing a tree’s health. Every tree species requires certain nutrients and pest treatments to increase its longevity and health. Our tree health management services assist with the following:

  • Fertilization: We test the soil surrounding a tree for nutrient density. If we find the soil lacks essential nutrients, we develop a custom fertilizer blend to secure the specimen’s health.
  • Trunk and root health management: Trunks and roots are integral to a tree’s structural health. They also transfer essential nutrients throughout the specimen’s body. We check for signs of unsteady structures and find solutions.
  • Pest and disease treatment: Virginian trees have a wealth of destructive pests and diseases they must battle each year. We offer eco-friendly treatment solutions to protect them from the most recent threats.

Land Clearing

Contrary to common belief, construction projects don’t have to cause excessive tree loss. With our ISA-certified arborist at your side, you can navigate a  lot-clearing project  by removing only the necessary trees without damaging surrounding trees.

Emergency Tree Service and Storm Damage Clean-up

We offer emergency tree removal services for a variety of circumstances:

  • Violent, windy storms that uproot or weaken trees
  • Vehicle wrecks involving severely wounded trees
  • Diseased trees that lean excessively

We’ll assist with storm damage clean-up and other catastrophes. Call our hotline at (703) 844-3886 to request emergency services.

Did You Know…

In 2020, residents of Oakton, VA, effectively saved an ancient oak tree from the Virginia Department of Transportation’s removal orders, which would have caused the tree’s death. This historic tree predates the Civil War and grows on Hunter Mill Road. The VDOT made a motion to remove it following a lightning strike damaging an important limb. Hopefully, the VDOT will continue working with residents and arborists to preserve this impressive specimen.
