Seattle loves trees.  How many other towns do you know where the government asks the inhabitants to become Tree Ambassadors?  Or where there is a Tree Steward and a Trees for Neighborhoods project?  Maybe they came for the seaport, but it was the lumber that was the first industry for Seattle settlers and to this day this is a city that treats trees with respect.  Which is where we come in.  TopTree Service Seattle are proud to be not just part of that fine tradition, but right at the forefront of keeping Seattle as much about trees as it is about the sea.

Tree and Stump Removal

We're never happy to see a tree go but sometimes there's no choice and sometimes it's for the best since we can replace a sick tree with a healthy and better suited alternative. However if it's time to go it's time to go and we are the team who can do a site analysis and from that safely remove any tree including grinding out its stump to leave no trace. We'll remove your tree with no damage to your property, and we'll make sure the entire process goes ahead with the blessing of the local authorities (unauthorized tree removal is an offense in Seattle).

Tree Trimming

There are a number of reasons why a tree might need trimming. Annually there is the issue of trimming (pruning) to help remove dead branches and promote healthy growth. Then there are the problems that arise when a tree starts to get too big for the place it was planted or starts to grow in unwanted directions. Trees should never be allowed to touch your property (let alone anyone else's) or get too close to power lines or underground piping. Let us assess the need for trimming to avoid such hazards and give you a long term schedule for what needs to be done to keep your trees in order.

Tree Hazard Inspection

Typically Top Tree Service Seattle get called in when a tree or its major limbs offer an obvious threat. That could mean danger of wood dropping onto parked cars, pedestrians, property, or family, or it could mean that a leaning tree looks like it's going to keep on going until it ends up is in obvious danger. Smart tree owners know that some forms of damage are invisible and that only a trained eye (and ear) can tell if a tree is sound or not. In any case we are the team to tell you. Call us and have your trees inspected for any possible risks now.

"We had a bunch of old tree stumps out in the backyard and even though someone had clearly tried to cut them down to the ground we were still tripping over them until Top Tree Service Seattle came round one afternoon and simply ground them down to below the level of the lawn. Now there is no trace at all.” - Don V.

"Bad weather had caused a bit of damage with falling branches even smashing a car window in the lot. So we got Top Tree Surgeons Seattle in to ensure there was no further risk of falls. Not only did they do that but they explained how to weather proof our trees for the future without having to get rid of the lot. We were really happy and now have year round maintenance contracts. ”- Paul K.

Tree Braces and Support Systems

Life and the Seattle weather take their toll on trees and sometimes a tree is still alive, even healthy, but no longer strong enough to take the strain of standing fully upright. No problem. Top Tree Service Seattle can brace, cable, guy or support those sagging trunks and in the process give a new lease of life to a tired tree as well as protecting your property.

Trees need food too. Only thing is that we like to tidy up around them so they look neat but never get to benefit from natural composting and the decomposition of dead leaves and twigs. Some trees don't have the root reach to get all of the natural nutrients they need either. Top Tree Surgeons Seattle will conduct a full analysis of your soil and decide which key elements your trees need and in what proportions and quantities then fertilize them accordingly. A fed tree is a happy tree.
