Why should I request tree pruning?

Regular pruning prevents potential hazards posed by falling limbs. If tree branches grow too big or too close to your home, they need to be pruned. In addition to keeping your yard safe, pruning also makes your trees look nicer.

How can I tell whether a tree will fall?

Our certified arborists will assess the condition of your trees and determine whether any of your trees might be in danger of coming down. Tree trunks can crack, split and rot, resulting in trees crashing to the ground. We’ll visit your home and inform you of any trees that are close to collapse.

How does the tree removal process work?

We take care to cut down your tree section by section, without letting it fall on your house or landscaping. You can trust us to follow the most stringent industry standards. Once we remove the tree, we’ll get to work grinding down or digging up the remaining stump.

Do I need a permit to remove a tree?

Maybe. Some municipalities in the Columbia, Missouri area do require a permit for removing trees. It often depends on the size and location of the tree and whether the tree presents a hazard. In addition to a permit, you might also need to confirm the tree removal with your homeowner’s association. The arborists at Tree Wizard can help you determine whether permits apply and assist you in obtaining them.

Is it OK to remove trees close to the house?

Branches can scratch up the siding or roof of your house. A buildup of leaves and twigs on the roof can contribute to rot. The roots of a large tree can destroy the foundation of your home, causing cracking and other issues. Trees pose many problems to houses. The skilled arborists at Tree Wizard can safely remove trees no matter how close to your house they may be.

How often should I prune my trees?

Trees should be pruned at least a few times a year, but the season varies based on the type of tree. For example, conifers and hardwoods have distinctive shapes, and certain times of the year are best for tree pruning in their cases.
