What to Expect (Our Tree Removal Process)
The tree removal process in the greater Seattle area is a complex one that involves multiple steps and considerations. Areas like Shoreline, Mercer Island, Medina, and Lake Forest Park have specific requirements related to tree removal. All tree removal companies must do the work according to those requirements.
Once the permit is obtained, the next step is to determine the best method for removing the tree. This will depend on many factors, such as the time of year, the tree species, its condition, and its location.
There are several common methods for removing trees in the Seattle area. A professional arborist will evaluate the tree and the environment surrounding it before determining the best method to remove the tree.
Traditional Tree Removal
This tree removal method involves cutting the tree down in sections using chainsaws. It usually involves a tree climber ascending the tree and cutting it into smaller sections, which are then lowered to the ground using ropes and pulleys. It's typically used for smaller trees and trees that have a clear fall zone.
Crane-assisted tree removal
This method involves using a crane to help remove large or difficult-to-access trees. The crane can be used to remove the tree in sections or to lift the entire tree out of the area, including over a house! Learn more about it >>
Tight-Quarter Tree Removal
Taking out trees that are located in a confined space, such as between buildings, or in a spot that's difficult to access, can be especially tricky. But, with the right equipment and a skilled crew, it is possible to cut down a tree between two houses, remove a big tree from a small yard, and take down a tree in a narrow space.

Crane-Assisted Tree Removal
Sometimes, the best (or only) way to remove a tree is to hire a tree service company with a tree removal crane and an experienced crane operator. Here are just a few of the situations in which a crane will likely be needed to remove a tree,
Trees that have a large diameter, a wide canopy, or are extremely tall may require the use of a crane to safely remove them.
Trees in tight spaces
Trees located in confined areas, such as between buildings or near power lines, may need a crane to maneuver the tree around obstacles and safely remove it.
Trees in close proximity to structures
Trees near homes or buildings often call for crane removal to prevent damage to the structures.
Trees that are at risk of falling on a house, road, or power line pose a threat to human lives and properties. Often, these dangerous trees can only be taken down with the help of a crane.
Emergency tree removal
When a tree has fallen on a home, car, or business, a crane is needed to lift it off the structure. See our emergency tree removal services >>
What to Expect (The Stump Grinding Process)
Depending on its size, height, and location, we typically recommend grinding to permanently eliminate the tree stump.
Unlike most tree service companies in the Puget Sound area, we grind out the stump immediately after taking down your tree - no need to wait days, or even weeks, for a separate crew to come back with the stump grinder.
We offer stump grinding as an option to all of our residential and commercial tree removal clients. However, we do not provide it as a stand-alone service.
