Permits are required for all tree removals, which are obtained from the Public Works department of your municipality or borough. See below for municipal phone numbers. It is unlikely that the inspector will grant a permit for the removal of a tree that is in good condition and in a suitable location. More commonly we remove trees that have become dangerous due to decay, that are storm damaged, or that their location’s suitability has been affected by changed circumstances.

Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) has begun to kill the ash trees in our area, and ash removals are becoming the most common type of tree removal. These trees are inherently difficult to work with due to their size, weight and volume of the wood. For more information on the EAB problem click here.

When Tree Removal is Recommended

1. Dead or dying;
2. Hazardous;
3. Grown to the point where an obstruction is caused that cannot be corrected by pruning;
4. Is crowding or causing harm to other trees;
5. Is to be replaced by a more suitable specimen;
6. Has to be removed to allow for new construction;
7. Is causing damage to roofs, foundations, septic weep fields or driveways, etc.

We can advise on tree permits required for tree removal, though it is the client’s responsibility to apply for the tree permit.

We are experienced and equipped for even the largest most complex tree removals.
