Des Moines Tree and Stump Removal

Although we consider every option to preserve your trees, sometimes due to generally poor condition, inappropriate location, unacceptable risk or other criteria, removal is simply the best management option. Some removal projects are quite routine, while others require highly technical skills including working around utility lines, complex rigging or the use of large cranes. Xtreme Tree crews include arborists and tree trimmers with all the skills necessary to safely complete the most difficult and hazardous removals.






Removals are performed to eliminate dead and dying trees and those that have become hazardous and cannot be mitigated by other accepted cultural practices. Removals are also done to eliminate competition so the remaining plants have more light and space to develop. Trees are also removed to allow for new construction, building additions, and to provide clearances with those structures.

Tree removal is the most hazardous aspect of arboriculture. Often, tree workers must remove trees growing in confined spaces near homes, utility lines, and other sensitive areas. Tree removal requires considerable experience and training to successfully perform this task.

At Xtreme Tree, our arborists are highly trained in the art and science of tree removal. Our goal in all of our tree work operations is to provide thorough clean up of debris and cause minimal impact to surrounding vegetation.

We are also equipped to grind out any size stump and assist with species selection and planting of a replacement tree where appropriate.
