At Patrick Musser Tree Service, we take your tree-related concerns seriously. We have assembled a highly experienced crew specializing in large and dangerous tree removal in Montgomery and Frederick County, MD, and neighboring areas.

If your large trees are starting to make you feel uneasy, simply reach out to us, and we will evaluate the situation for you. We understand losing a precious tree is sad, and that’s why we have professionals to assess whether we can save it using other procedures such as trimming, pruning, and dead wood removal.

How Our Experts Handle Large and Dangerous Tree Removal

Oversized tree extraction is one of the most complicated and hazardous arborist services. It can lead to deadly situations if done improperly, such as falling on your house, power lines, other trees, or even a crew member. At Patrick Musser Tree Service, we understand the dangers  involved, that’s why we leave nothing to chance and keep safety as a top priority. 

First, our crew members are extensively trained on large tree cutting and are equipped with state-of-the-art tree removal equipment, as well as personal protection gear. We also follow all relevant laws and processes required by the authorities. Here’s what you can expect when we show up:

Tree Cutting – An experienced crew member will climb the tree and use specialized cutting equipment to dismantle the tree. Depending on the situation, we cut the branch, either whole or in sections, and let the pieces fall or lower them slowly to the ground. After removing the canopy and branches, we cut the trunk into sections and lower the chunks depending on the room available. Our technique ensures the tree never falls the wrong way.

    Inspection – First, our experts will assess the tree’s stability and its surrounding environment, then take note of any obstacles and hazards including power and telephone lines. 

    Pre-planning – The specialists will come up with a tree removal plan depending on the height of the tree, size of the trunk, weak limbs, nearby obstacles, and weather.

    Site Preparation – Depending on the location of the tree, our arborist will prepare the work site by removing anything that may interfere with the job and to ensure minimal lot damage.

    Handling the Aftermath – We know removing a large tree can get messy, that’s why we help you dispose of all the remaining green waste, including twigs, leaves, branches, and tree trunks. We can also cut the tree into manageable chunks, which can be split and used as firewood. In the end, we make sure our work site is tidy and free of debris.

    Tree Stump Removal – If you want the stump and roots extracted, we can get it done. We have the equipment for stump grinding.

    Set-up of Necessary Equipment – Our tree cutter will wear the appropriate safety gear, then use the proper harness systems for climbing and work positioning.
