Tree Trimming, Thinning, Pruning
Trimming and pruning your trees and shrubs is important for their health and safety, as well as their appearance. If you have concerns about branches near power lines, windows or other structures, you should contact us at Poly Timber to come evaluate your needs and provide you with a free estimate.
As tree trimming experts, we will listen to your concerns and examine your tree(s) to determine which branches should be trimmed, thinned or removed. We will then shape, crown and thin your trees in the most effective way possible. The tree trimming techniques we employ are designed to keep your trees from growing too rapidly, and help promote proper growth, branch structure and aesthetics, while maintaining tree safety. This process will cut back on maintenance costs in the long run. We also safely remove the trimmed or pruned branches and haul them away at no extra cost.
If you have a sick, dead or dying tree, it may be necessary to remove it. They can cause dangers including uprooting, falling branches and bug or termite infestation. Poly Timber will help you make an informed decision about whether or not removal should be undertaken and do it safely, if required, to avoid any potential collateral damage.
Some cities require special permits for certain trees so be sure to check local ordinances before planning any tree removal.
Tree stumps can be an eyesore and potentially hazardous if not removed. Left alone to decay on their own can take years and over time, stumps can begin to sprout new growth, harbor insect infestations and disease, among other issues. Poly Timber can completely remove your unsightly stump with our specialized machinery which we use to grind the stump down below the ground surface into not much more than sawdust.

Ivy Trimming & Removal
Trimming or removing ivy can be a messy and tedious undertaking. Let us handle the work by cutting back your ivy beds and maintaining a perimeter on it. If you need more than just a trim, we offer services like removal of ivy that may be growing up into the trees. This will keep your tree healthy and eliminate the ivy that is causing it to become choked and possibly die prematurely. We also can remove old, dead ivy by trimming it down to the roots to promote new growth and increase its overall health.
