Orange County Tree Removal

Orange County Tree Removal
Orange County Tree Service was called out to Aliso Viejo to provide a free estimation for a tree removal.  Aliso Viejo is located in Orange County and is surrounded by the cities of Laguna Hills and Laguna Niguel. Before we went out to perform the job, we had our customer send us a photo of their tree. This particular tree was rather small however it complied with our minimum charge policy, which is $300.00 to remove or trim trees in Aliso Viejo and all surrounding cities.

After viewing the picture we realized that the cable for the house, possibly along with other cables and pipes, ran right underneath the tree that the customer wanted removed. We updated our customer on the current situation and referred them to a company called Dig Alert. Dig Alert will go to any job site and mark where the utilities run underground for your specific property, free of charge for the service. After the customer’s utilities were marked, they sent us another photo and just as we had anticipated, there were multiple utilities running below the tree. Although most of these pipes are usually buried more than 18 inches deep, we decided to remove the tree by hand for safety purposes being that our stump grinder is a powerful machine and could easily cut right through one of these pipes. Though it does cost more to dig out a stump by hand, it is well worth the money in order to prevent additional costs and damages. Our crew took  their time and carefully extract the stump without breaking any major pipes or wires.

Orange County Tree Trimming

Orange County Tree Trimming is based Southern California specializing in both commercial and residential tree trimming. This summer was quite busy, mostly due to the broad aspects of tree trimming that required constant maintenance; it appears that a lot of commercial buildings are starting to clean up their properties. We were recently working in the city of Irvine on a large tree trimming contract when we were approached by a gentleman asking if we trimmed trees for residential customers. We not only conveniently answered his question but also sent one of our estimators to his property and gave him a free estimate. Subsequently, he called us one week later to use our services for the tree trimmings. Though this particular project was on the smaller side, we weren’t all that concerned being that it coincided with our minimum charge, which we gladly can provide over the phone for any job throughout the cities of Orange County.
The project entailed the removal of a dead Pine tree as a result of the customer making a rash decision in hiring a tree company he had no prior knowledge of. He enrolled with their services strictly based on the purpose of monetary benefit where he was only required to pay a very low rate. Shortly thereafter, he returned home from work to find his beautiful pine tree had been practically trimmed down to nothing. Eight months later, the tree appeared to be lifeless prompting a quick removal. Recognizing our line of work in Irvine, the customer immediately sensed our level of experience and qualification in tree trimming.  While easy facilitating the tree removal, our newly acquired customer mentioned that he contacted several tree companies within Orange County but ultimately did not feel comfortable with their amount of knowledge regarding the repair procedures for underground piping. These kinds of incidents lead us back to the reason why we are such an active company, especially because we pride ourselves on giving customers as much information as possible before starting a new project finalizing the thorough completion of all estimates. After the assessment, we communicated to our customer that there were currently a few broken sprinkler pipes running underneath the dead tree that needed to be repaired as well. This unexpected issue was no problem for us being that we have all of the parts on our trucks to fix most sprinkler pipes including low voltage sprinkler cables and low voltage lighting. We efficiently resolved the matter by running a stump grinder threw the tree stump.We then took pictures of the broken pipes which was sent via email to our customer along with an accurate estimate. After receiving his approval to complete the job, we instantly restored the pipes and continued on our way.
