Tree removal in Vancouver WA and Portland metro area
While we do everything in our power to save or revitalize trees, there are times when they are too damaged to heal or too diseased. Often, dead trees can be a liability as they cannot support themselves and should be removed to ensure your yard can flourish. A lot of times, trees inside your yard may fall due to storms or heavy rains.
However, removing a tree for an untrained person can be pretty dangerous, and you should not risk doing it all by yourself. Our experts use the best practices and state-of-art equipment to remove the tree effectively and safely from your property. Whether it is a small job or a major one, you can depend on us for your tree removal needs.

A dead or decaying tree can pose hazard for you and your family. Request an assessment today, and our team will determine which trees have the potential to become a risk before and during storm season.
Types of Tree Removal
Tree removal can be necessary for a variety of reasons, including safety concerns, tree health issues, or making space for new construction or landscaping. At Timber TEKS, we offer several types of tree removal services to meet our clients’ needs:
- Standard Tree Removal: This is the most common type of tree removal service. Our team will use ropes and rigging equipment to safely lower the tree section by section until it is removed entirely.
- Crane-Assisted Tree Removal: For larger trees or trees that are located in hard-to-reach areas, we use cranes to remove the tree in sections. This allows us to safely and efficiently remove the tree without causing damage to surrounding structures or landscape.
- Emergency Tree Removal: When a tree falls unexpectedly due to storms, high winds, or other events, it can cause significant damage to property and pose a safety risk. Our team is available to provide emergency tree removal services to ensure that the situation is resolved quickly and safely.
- Stump Removal: After a tree has been removed, the stump will remain in the ground. We offer stump removal services to completely remove the stump and any associated roots, allowing for new landscaping or construction to take place.
No matter the reason for your tree removal needs, Timber TEKS has the experience and equipment necessary to complete the job safely and efficiently. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and receive a quote for your tree removal project.
Low-Impact Tree Removal
Low-impact tree removal is a method of tree removal that minimizes damage to the surrounding environment. Rather than using heavy equipment or clear-cutting methods, low-impact tree removal techniques prioritize the preservation of surrounding trees, plants, and wildlife. This approach involves careful planning, strategic cutting, and specialized equipment to ensure that the tree is safely and efficiently removed while minimizing damage to the surrounding area. At Timber TEKS, we prioritize environmentally-conscious practices, including low-impact tree removal, to ensure that our tree care services are sustainable and responsible.
Standard Tree Cutting
Standard tree cutting is a common tree care service that involves pruning and trimming trees to improve their health and appearance. This service typically includes removing dead, damaged, or diseased branches, as well as shaping the tree to promote healthy growth and improve its overall aesthetic. Standard tree cutting is an important part of tree maintenance, as it can help prevent safety hazards caused by falling branches and promote the longevity and health of the tree. At Timber TEKS, we offer expert standard tree cutting services to keep your trees healthy and beautiful for years to come.
Down-only removal is a method of tree removal that involves cutting down the tree and leaving the remaining trunk and roots in place. This method is often used when the tree is in a location that cannot accommodate traditional tree removal methods, such as a narrow space or an area with limited access. Down-only removal requires specialized equipment and expert knowledge to ensure that the tree is safely and efficiently removed without causing damage to surrounding structures or landscape. At Timber TEKS, we offer down-only removal services to meet our clients’ unique tree removal needs, while ensuring that the job is done safely and efficiently.
Stump removal is the process of removing the remaining stump of a tree after it has been cut down. Stumps can be unsightly, take up valuable space, and can even be hazardous if they are not removed. Stump removal typically involves grinding the stump down to below ground level using specialized equipment. This process can improve the aesthetic appeal of a landscape, prevent new growth from sprouting, and eliminate potential tripping hazards. At Timber TEKS, we offer expert stump removal services to help you fully restore your property after a tree has been removed.
Hazard Tree Assessment
Hazard tree assessment is a process that involves evaluating the condition and risk level of a tree to determine if it poses a threat to people or property. Trees that are diseased, damaged, or in poor condition can become hazardous, especially during severe weather events or high winds. A hazard tree assessment involves a thorough examination of the tree’s structure, health, and location to identify any potential risks. At Timber TEKS, our certified arborists are trained to perform hazard tree assessments and provide recommendations for the best course of action, whether it be pruning, cabling and bracing, or tree removal. By identifying and mitigating potential hazards, we help ensure the safety of your property and the surrounding area.
High-Risk Tree Removal
High-risk tree removal is a specialized tree care service that involves removing trees that are in challenging or dangerous locations. This can include trees that are near power lines, overhanging buildings, or growing on steep slopes. High-risk tree removal requires expert knowledge, specialized equipment, and careful planning to ensure that the tree is safely and efficiently removed without causing damage to surrounding structures or landscape. At Timber TEKS, our experienced team is trained to handle high-risk tree removals and prioritize safety in all aspects of the job. We take every precaution necessary to ensure that your property is protected and the job is done right.
Tree Danger Evaluation
Tree danger evaluation is an important part of tree care that involves assessing the risk of trees on your property. A tree that appears healthy from the outside may actually be a safety hazard due to internal decay, disease, or structural issues. Tree danger evaluation involves a thorough inspection of the tree’s health, structure, and location to identify any potential risks. This evaluation can help identify hazardous trees before they cause damage to property or injury to people. At Timber TEKS, our certified arborists are trained to perform tree danger evaluations and provide recommendations for the best course of action, whether it be pruning, cabling and bracing, or tree removal. By identifying and mitigating potential hazards, we help ensure the safety of your property and the surrounding area.
Signs of a Potentially Hazardous Tree
Identifying a potentially hazardous tree on your property is crucial for ensuring the safety of your family and your property. There are several signs to look for that may indicate a tree is a safety hazard.
These signs include:
- Leaning: A tree that is leaning more than 15 degrees from vertical may be at risk of falling.
- Cracks or splits: Cracks or splits in the trunk or major branches can indicate structural weakness and increase the likelihood of the tree falling.
- Dead branches: Dead branches can easily break off and cause damage to property or injury to people.
- Fungal growth: Fungal growth at the base of the tree or on major branches can indicate internal decay, which weakens the tree’s structure and makes it more prone to falling.
- Root problems: Root problems such as rot or damage can cause the tree to become unstable and more likely to fall.
If you notice any of these signs, it is important to have your tree evaluated by a certified arborist. At Timber TEKS, our expert team can help assess the risk of potentially hazardous trees and provide recommendations for the best course of action to ensure the safety of your property and the surrounding area.
