Take down techniques used will depend on the tree's location and the surrounding obstacles to be avoided. Climbing Arborists, boom trucks or cranes may be used. During this process, limbs will be chipped and disposed of, and wood will be cut into firewood lengths and left in place. The final step will be to remove the majority of the debris associated with the tree removal process. If you do not wish to keep the firewood, or give it away to your friends or neighbors, you can contract with Arbor Pro Care to remove the wood, or we can refer you to individuals or companies interested in firewood that may remove your wood for little to no cost. These individuals or companies are not associated with Arbor Pro Care, so we assume no liability associated with their wood removal process.
This service generally includes Arbor Pro Care's removal experts getting the tree safely on the ground. This may include the use of technical rigging, direction falling or aerial lift equipment to get the tree down safely. Once on the ground, the tree is left in place with no cutting of limbs or wood.
Some of our customers have also asked us to cut up the larger wood that their personal saws can't handle and to grind the stump below grade. Cost savings compared to Standard Tree Removal Service are significant.
This is primarily the same as Standard Tree Removal Service, although additional measures are taken to further reduce the impact to lawn, plants, small structures, building siding, etc. To accomplish this, plywood may be used to protect lawn and building siding from drag marks from limbs being dragged to our wood chippers. Limbs may be cut into smaller sections and carried out to avoid impact to plants and structures. More intensive rigging techniques may be used and barriers may be placed under trees to limit impact of tree sections being lowered or fallen.
Arbor Pro Care has extensive experience in safely removing trees from homes and other structures. Arbor Pro Care consistently performs this type of removal safely and efficiently without causing additional damage. This type of tree failure usually occurs during storms and frequently causes damages to roofs. When this happens, we can help by covering roof holes after the tree is removed to temporarily limit or prevent water damage inside your home. We have 24/7 Emergency Dispatch Service to meet your needs. Just call (219) 617-8227.

Arbor Pro Care generally recommends grinding out stumps over other available methods. Excavation for stump removal is more expensive and causes more site disturbance. Arbor Pro Care is equipped to grind stumps of any size. We have stump machines that will access narrow openings and gates for those hard to reach areas.
Our stump grinding machines grind stumps to various depths below grade depending on the machines capabilities and any underground obstructions. Stumps are ground into small woodchips and when the process is complete, you are left with a mound of woodchips and loosened soil. This material is usually left on site and frequently used by the landowner for mulch. If requested, the grinding debris can be removed for an additional fee.
Generally, Arbor Pro Care will coordinate Underground Utility Location Service, if needed. However, private underground utilities, such as irrigation lines, drainage lines, etc., are the responsibility of the property owner. If they are located and marked, they can be avoided. The tires of the stump grinder can occasionally leave impressions in the landscape -usually soft, wet turf. If this does occur, it usually has minor effect. For a small additional fee, we can cover sensitive areas with plywood to minimize impact.
