High-Risk Tree Removal
Tree removal isn’t for the faint of heart. If the tree is located near a power line, an inexperienced person attempting to remove it risks electrocution and power outages to their entire neighborhood. And any tree removal project is made more dangerous if you don’t have the right protective equipment and tools to do the job. Rotting wood adds another layer of danger. This decay will make the tree unstable and it could fall in unexpected ways, possibly harming you or landing on your house.
If you’re in need of high-risk tree removal services, give us a call. How do you know if it’s a high-risk removal? Ask yourself these questions:
- Is the tree close to a power line?
- Is it leaning over your roof?
- Do you suspect that the tree is unstable due to internal rotting?
If a tree has fallen on your home and you can’t find a safe way to exit, call 911. When a tree poses a threat, we urge you not to risk your safety. Our teams are ready to help!
Storm Damage Restoration
High winds, flash flooding, heavy rain, and lightning strikes can all cause a lot of damage. What kind of damage can a severe storm do to your home or property? A fallen tree could destroy your roof, gutters, windows, and siding. A heavier tree could even cause structural damage to your house.
When trees fall, they can also block roadways and driveways or ruin your yard. The team at Mike Forrest Tree Removal Service can get those trees cleared away in a jiffy so that you can get back to normal in no time. Do you need storm damage restoration services? Give us a call.

Trimming and Pruning
Preventative maintenance is the key to saving time, money, and, more importantly, lives. Trimming large branches will prevent them from breaking and falling on your home during a severe storm. Cutting branches away from your house can also prevent squirrels from climbing into your roof or insects invading your home.
As licensed arborists, we also know how to trim a tree and direct growth so that branches move away from structures and dangerous power lines.
Pruning is more about looks than safety, but it’s still important. After all, the trees on your property should help make your home or business shine.
Not only do we make sure your trees are not threatening you or your property, but we also help increase curb appeal with our expert tree pruning.
Stump grinding is an important part of tree removal. After we remove the body of the tree, we begin the stump grinding process. Once we ground the stump to be level with the yard’s surface, the roots will die, and the tree won’t be able to regrow.
Why Safety is Important
In all the services we provide from tree trimming to high-risk removals, safety is our number one priority. When we take down trees, we make sure that we don’t endanger any people, buildings, homes, or landscaping. We use the right equipment and techniques to clear your property.
When safety is done right, no one is hurt, no property gets damaged, and it even saves money.
Why Do We Trim Branches Before We Fell A Tree
Trimming branches before felling a tree is one of our safe work practices. We cut branches to avoid getting hit by the tree or the branches when the tree falls. After we get the tree down, we can then chop it up into manageable pieces.
DIY or Professional Tree Trimming – Which is Better?
Tree trimming is, by nature, hazardous work. So, think about your skill level, the size of the tree, and the amount of work that’s required. This will help you determine when it’s time to pick up the phone and call the pros.
With trees that are 20 feet or taller, special precautions must be taken. The tree needs to be de-branched, topped, secured with a safety line, and pulled in the direction you want the tree to fall. You’ll need to cut a vee into the tree to encourage it to drop where you want it too, but that isn’t a guarantee. A professional will know how to do the job safely.
That’s why we’re here. We don’t want you to risk your safety. So let the licensed arborists and tree technicians at Mike Forrest take care of your problem trees. Give us a call to take care of your Bowie property today!
