Island Tree Care is a trained and insured tree removal company. When a tree needs to be removed, we take care to ensure it is done safely with a proper plan and the correct equipment required for each removal including ropes, rigging and even cranes where needed. We have many years of experience in dangerous tree removal and our expertise can make all the difference in terms of safety and your peace of mind.

At Island Tree Care it is our job to assess the risks a tree brings when it is growing close to a structure or power line. Our Initial consults are free, call us today to schedule a consult. However, if a tree has come down on a structure or you feel the potential for an emergency is at hand, we do emergency tree removal as well.

Feel free to explore our website where you will see pictures of our tree climbing arborists at work. Please note when a tree is alive and stable we are able to utilize the tree itself as part of the removal but when a tree is dead or unstable this is not always possible and boom trucks or cranes may be required to ensure the safety of our tree fallers.

We also ensure any onlookers who have gathered to watch our tree surgeons at work are kept back from the danger zone to ensure safety for all by communicating with everyone on or near the site and by marking the affected areas with signage and pylons. When it comes to tree removal, control is how we mitigate risk. In controlling the tree and site with the correct approach and equipment, we ensure that the potential for danger and mishap are controlled as well.

When the tree is down, we can remove all wood or buck and leave the wood harvested for the customer. The scope of our work is directed by the customer prior to job start. Branches can be chipped and removed from site and stumps ground out also where required for landscaping.
