Your plants need regular pruning and care to look their best and stay healthy.

Buckthorn is an invasive species that can out-compete native Minnesota plants for the resources they need to thrive.

Removing trees & shrubs becomes necessary when the plants are severely injured by storms, they outgrow their sites or they need maintenance.

Cutting a tree close to the ground isn’t enough for your property needs. We also need to grind a stump we leave the site as clean as we can.

Our trimming services can shape your hedges and reduce the height or width as needed. In addition, we remove, dispose of and plant hedges.

We’ll help you decide whether a damaged tree can be saved; whether cracks can be repaired, or if a diseased or insect infested tree can be treated.

  2. Trees and branches that fall and cause injury to cars and/or pedestrians carries liability for the property owner.
  3. Vegetation extending into the road right-of-way may cause sight obstructions and is considered a hazard.
  4. Property owners are responsible for damage to emergency vehicles from overhanging branches or other obstructions along their driveway/property.
