County Tree Service is the premier tree care and removal service in the St. Louis Metro Area. We offer a full range of tree services performed by licensed experts using top quality equipment. When it comes to the proper care of a healthy tree or the removal of a dead or dying one, it's usually best to call the professionals.
Our Services Include:
Taking Care of Your Pin Oaks
Pin Oaks are a challenge. Though hardy trees here in St. Louis, they often have a tremendous amount of deadwood with small and large branches. Proper removal of this deadwood by skilled climbers will lead to a beautifully shaped, healthy specimen like this gorgeous Pin Oak we have been proud to work on in Kirkwood. It takes some time, but it is well worth it.
Tree and Shrub Care
Giving your trees and shrubs the care they need will greatly increase their life and beauty, as well as add value to your home. More importantly, you can reduce the risk of trees falling or breaking apart, especially in a storm. If you are not already a County Tree Service customer, you may not be aware that proper tree care requires professionals who are skilled in the national standards for arboricultural practices. Even basic tree pruning can damage a tree if it is done improperly. We provide our field staff with training throughout the year to continually improve their knowledge and techniques.
Tree and Stump Removal
We all hate to lose a tree. However, it is sometimes critical to remove a tree because it has become a hazard to your property and the people around you. A County Tree Service technician will evaluate your tree and determine the best way to remove it safely. Our equipment and skilled climbers enable us to remove even the most challenging trees quickly, without damaging the surrounding landscape.
DON'T TOP TREES! The practice of "topping" is extremely harmful to trees. A lot of things can kill a tree - please don't be one of them. Spread the word not to top trees. Trees everywhere are counting on you.
In the foreground is a healthy, American elm tree that is treated annually for Dutch elm disease and has never been topped. It is a beautiful tree that grows right up to the street curb with no obtrusive and damaging surface or subsurface roots. That's the reason they were planted in boulevards, along sidewalks, and lined the streets of the United States. The neighboring elm tree in the background was topped, which makes for hundreds of smaller branches that fall year round with every strong breeze.
Take care of your trees - don't top them.
