TREE REMOVAL IS DANGEROUS! Don't trust your safety to anyone other than a professional tree removal company with a Certified Tree Safety Professional (CTSP) on staff.

"Beaver Tree Service came well prepared with a team of four to take down two dead trees in our back yard, clear out the brush and chip all of the leftover branches. All were very personable and took great care to ensure everything was safe and were able to finish the job in a little over two hours. Both of these trees were over the pool in our backyard and not a single twig made it's way into the pool... WOW! Plus they swept around the area and made sure that there was no debris left on the ground. Finally, the cherry on top of the whole experience was that their services came in at a much more reasonable price than what other companies quoted. 100% would use their services again!"

Should You Remove That Tree?

While strong, healthy trees are an asset that can increase property values and the enjoyment of your outdoor spaces, there are times when it's necessary to cut down one or more trees to improve the overall safety, health and appearance of your property.


A dead tree is not only an eyesore, but it's also unstable and prone to falling. Diseased trees can quickly spread pathogens to other trees and plants in your yard if not treated promptly or, if necessary, removed entirely. Split, cracked and broken branches can fall unexpectedly, posing a safety hazard to your family and property.


Heavy winds, lightning strikes (here's what happens when a tree is hit by lightning), and even winter weather can lead to damaged or fallen trees. If the tree is too close to your house, the right storm can badly damage the structure of your home. Remove large branches and fallen trees quickly so you can start repairs to your home and yard and get things back to normal.


Tree crowding can stunt growth and promote the spread of rot and disease in otherwise healthy trees. By removing some of the trees in your yard, you’ll allow the remaining trees to flourish and thrive.


A shady lawn is a great thing to have, but too much shade can stifle grass growth and trap moisture. If you’re ready to trade your muddy, patchy lawn for one that’s lush and green, removing trees can help.


Tree removal can do wonders for your home, inside and out. Brighten up your home during the day with increased sun exposure, which can also help keep your home warmer during winter months. Overhanging trees can clog your gutters and trap moisture on your roof and siding, leading to mold and mildew, and give small animals and other pests easy access to your attic space.


Tree removal might not be the only option! If you’re interested in saving your tree, pruning might be possible to protect its health and help it grow back stronger than ever.

"We have had Beaver Tree Service take down several of our trees, and hired them to take down trees from our HOA common areas. They are professional and well organized. We were very pleased with their work and continue to refer them to neighbors, friends and family!"

Ice Damage to Trees

What to Do (and Not Do) After an Ice Storm

Snow, sleet, and freezing rain seem to be hitting Forsyth County and the greater Piedmont Triad area with increasing frequency. We often get calls from people asking what to do about trees that are covered in ice or that have broken or fallen under the weight of ice or snow. Often, an ice-damaged tree will need to be removed or professionally pruned - but not always. So we've put together answers to the most frequently asked questions about ice storm (and snow) damage to trees.

Wait. That advice may seem strange, but it is the best thing to do for your trees and yourself. Eventually, the ice or snow will melt and you can safely assess the damage to your trees.

Read more in our winter tree care checklist.

Don’t try to knock ice or snow off the tree branches! This can easily harm the tree. Branches are likely to be brittle and can easily break, and using a tool like a rake – yes, we’ve seen people do this! – can tear the bark. Plus, there’s a strong chance that you’ll injure yourself, particularly if you’re standing under the tree when you hit it. Falling ice and broken branches landing on your head are never a good thing…

Wet snow and ice are much heavier than you may think. Both can cause branches to break, sections of a tree to fall, or even an entire tree to come crashing down.

If the snow or ice storm happens late in the season, when trees and shrubs are starting to bud or flower, the cold can kill the buds. It’s unlikely to kill the tree but there probably won’t be many flowers (or fruit) that year.

Stay well away from the tree and call the tree care professionals at Beaver Tree for an inspection. Depending on the severity of the damage, you may not need to do anything right away. In other cases, dangerous branches will need to be removed quickly.

Some damage may not be noticeable until the spring when leaves begin to appear and sections of your tree turn out to be broken, damaged, or dead. When that happens, contact us for professional tree pruning

What to do with a fallen or severely damaged tree depends on the situation. Here are some general guidelines:

  • If the tree or sections of the tree are blocking a roadway, call your local municipal services.
  • If the tree is touching or has brought down utility lines, call your utility company. Never go near a tree that is touching power lines!
  • If your tree or large branches have fallen on your driveway (so you can’t get out) or on a building, call us for emergency tree removal.
  • If sections of a tree have fallen in your yard, or if there are broken branches that don’t appear to be in danger of falling or causing any further damage, schedule a professional tree consultation.
  • Do NOT try to cut or remove ice-covered branches yourself, especially with a chainsaw. It’s easy to be injured by a chainsaw slipping on the ice or a branch under load reacting forcefully and unexpectedly when cut.

It depends. It’s best to schedule an inspection with a tree service professional who can assess the damage to your tree. In some cases, the damage may be too extensive and the tree will need to be removed. In other cases, structural pruning, cabling or bracing, or extra care and attention may do the trick.

What to Expect

How We Remove Trees

If there’s enough space, we can simply fell the tree and cut it into sections on the ground.

Usually, a tree has to be removed in segments, especially if it’s close to your house, power lines, or septic tanks. We may cut the tree into sections starting from the top, and lower the pieces safely to the ground using ropes and pulleys to minimize damage to your yard.

No matter what’s required, we have the training and the equipment needed to get the job done.

Once the tree is removed, there will be a tree stump of about 6” remaining. We also provide stump grinding services to remove stumps completely.

"I wanted to say a special thank you for all your work. That last tree job was a challenging one, given that if it had fallen, it could have damaged the fence and possibly the neighbor's property/building. I was very pleased to see the result. Special kudos to your crew who followed exact instructions, given they were working close to aircraft movement areas without airport staff supervision. Please congratulate them on a job well done!"
