We are pleased to offer the following utility tree services for DNR, DOT, City, County, Township, and State properties across Minnesota and Eastern North Dakota and Eatern South Dakota:

Tree Trimming & Tree Removal

Aerial Basket Tree Trimming & Tree Removal

Our Certified Arborists are trained to provide professional tree trimming and tree removal practices from individuals where aerial baskets are needed. Most of our aerial baskets have the capability of reaching 75 feet high, but they are capable of aiding in the removal of much taller trees. Given the many different situations, aerial basket tree removals aid in employee safety and protection against property damage.

Crane Assisted Tree Removal

We understand that our customers want to avoid yard damage from heavy machinery. When access to the tree is a problem or the tree is too unstable to rig down safely, our Certified Arborists use a crane to remove the tree in pieces. We choose cranes based on the size of the tree; from 38 tons for smaller trees to 175 tons for larger trees.

Tree Climbing Specialist

Our trained climbing Certified Arborists can help with any tree service in any location. When a bucket cannot access the tree’s area, our climbing specialists can safely and efficiently access the tree. Our specialists never use climbing spikes to climb except when performing tree removal. Spikes leave open wounds that spread disease, which can damage the tree and can often lead to its death.

Tree Cabling

We offer both static and dynamic tree cabling services to reduce stress in trees that may be damaged from high winds, the weight of ice or snow, heavy foliage, or are prone to failure.

Our static tree cabling systems are made of steel. These systems are used primarily for trees that are at the highest risk of failure and need extra strength to reduce stress. Our dynamic tree cabling systems are more flexible. These systems allow for more natural tree movement while still providing enough support to reduce the risk of failure.

If you're not sure whether your tree needs a static or dynamic tree cabling system, one of our Certified Arborists can help determine what system best fits your tree's needs.

Plant & Tree Diseases

Trees are living organisms, and they get sick from time to time due to site conditions, insect damage, or tree diseases. Think of our Certified Arborist like a tree doctor who is always here to help.

Our Certified Arborist will:

Positively identify the problem(s) that your tree is experiencing
Discuss all possible treatment options (ex: emerald ash borer treatment)
Measure your trees for an accurate price estimate
Follow up to discuss details and answer any of your questions

Hauling or Chipping

We have equipment available to handle any size cleanup or lot clearing work that needs to be done. Our loader trucks consist of a 20-foot boom arm with a grapple that can remove both logs and brush piles in a quick and effective manner. Brush can also be chipped with our brush chippers. Our brush chippers can handle branches 4”-20” pieces in diameter. You can use the wood chips for mulching around trees, plants, and landscaped areas.

Hydro Axing & Brush Mowing

When doing line clearance, lot clearing projects, or cutting a trail through the woods, our hydro axing and brush mowing equipment can get the job done quickly. These machines can handle material up to 10” in diameter and give the cleanest cut.

Stump Grinding

Stump grinding is an easy way to rid your yard of stumps that 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 place of the old stump because the old root system is still in place.

Carr’s Tree Service will have the utilities marked wherever applicable prior to performing stump grinding.

Carr’s Tree Service is the premier vegetation management company in the upper Midwest.
