Tree Trimming/Pruning

Our staff of Certified Arborists and technicians will gladly help with  your pruning needs, including: canopy reconstruction, removal of dead or broken branches, clearing limbs back or away from structures, or elevating low hanging limbs up and off your driveway.

A healthy well-maintained tree can add considerable value as well as safety for a property and community. Proper tree pruning starts with hiring a company that has experience and knowledge of trees’ needs, as well as an understanding of the customers objectives.

Stump Grinding

Once a tree is cut down and removed, the question very quickly becomes, “what to do with the stump?” After a tree is removed the stump may remain or be ground out. Sometimes the stump is in an area that wouldn’t benefit from its removal. When a stump is a trip hazard, mowing obstruction, or distraction/eye sore, various forms of grinding may be warranted. Depending on your need, we can grind stumps out completely for replanting or to a lesser depth to allow grass to grow. While most tree services do not offer removal of grindings, Bob Ray Co., Inc., does. We also offer backfilling, and applying grass seed and straw. Our stump grinding machine can fit through a 36” gate opening.

Tree Removal

Despite our love of trees, their removal is sometimes required. This may be due to a variety of  factors.  Trees can outgrow their space or become structurally unsound. An arborist can help decide if a tree should be removed.  Utilizing high-tech equipment, we strive to impact the environment as little as possible. Trust our team for your Free Tree Health Estimate

Cabling / Bracing

Cabling is done to provide supplemental support to two or more co-dominant limbs in order to limit additional splitting and lengthen the life and stability of the tree. This is accomplished by using high-tensile strength cables and hardware that meets industry standards. Cables are only meant to add supplemental support.
