Aerial Basket Trimming & Removal
Our crews are trained to provide professional tree removal practices from private individuals to utility companies where aerial baskets are needed. Most of our aerial baskets have the capability of reaching 75 feet high and are capable of aiding in the removal of trees much taller. Given the many different situations, aerial basket removals aid in employee safety and protection against property damage.
Crane Assisted Tree Removal
We have many customers who do not want any yard damage from heavy machinery on their yard. When access to the tree is a problem or the tree is too unstable to rig down safely, we have crews that work with a crane to take out your tree in pieces. We use cranes that vary in size from 38 Ton for the smaller trees all the way up to 175 Ton.

Stump grinding is an easy way to rid your yard of stumps which result in suckers popping up year after year. Stump grinding leaves a minimal mess and hole compared to a backhoe or other large equipment. Our stump grinders vary in size and are capable of getting into hard to reach places. The stump grinders also leave minimal footprints on one’s yard. A new tree should not be planted in the exact place of the old, because some of the old root system is still in place. Carr’s Tree Service will have the utilities marked where applicable prior to preforming stump grinding.
