  • What are some of the reasons it might be time for a tree to go?

    A tree may be dead, unhealthy or damaged. At times the top of the tree or branches may be dying back, or the trunk may be showing signs of decay. Storm damage can sometimes create issues that are beyond repair. A tree may be growing too close to your home or garage, and utility lines or other structures may be endangered by continued growth of the tree or its root system. A tree may be leaning dangerously toward your home, deck, driveway or children’s play area. You may be bothered by constantly dropping leaves, needles, seeds or sap that requires labor intensive clean up. Your views may be blocked, or a tree may be creating so much shade that your lawn is no longer thriving. If you’ve recently purchased your home, you may now own trees that have been neglected and need to be removed. Whatever the reason may be, the safe removal of a large tree requires proper equipment and an experienced crew.

    Attempting to remove a tree on your own can be extremely dangerous. The experienced crews at DLC Arbor can safely and efficiently remove problem trees—even those in the tightest, most difficult locations. Rest assured that your tree will be cut down safely and promptly hauled away.

    What do you do after the tree is removed?

    Removing a tree from your yard leaves a big hole in your landscape. DLC Arbor can grind down the stump for you in order to remove the stump to below ground level so either grass sod or a replacement tree may be planted. Choosing a new tree is an important decision because you will be living with your choice for some time. There are many variables to consider in species alone. For instance, some trees are soft or drop debris and require a lot of clean-up each season. For example, cottonwoods can grow very large and drink up to 100 gallons of water per day. Other species may be susceptible to disease or tree insects. You will also need to consider the physical location for the new tree, as well as other landscaping factors in the surrounding environment.

About 15 percent of Denver’s urban canopy is ash. The City is discouraging planting ash trees because of the looming threat of the emerald ash borer (EAB). Click here for the latest news on the EAB.

Cottonwoods in Denver

Cottonwood trees were planted in Denver subdivisions in the 1970s and 1980s because they grow fast and create shade. They grow naturally next to stream banks in Colorado, which means they need much water. Also, cottonwoods can become enormous.
