Mission Tree Service Santa Barbara


Tree Removal Santa Barbara

Tree removal service is our most commonly performed job.  It is unfortunate when a tree needs to be removed, but there are very legitimate reasons for doing so.  These reasons include: creating landscape problems, such as not being able to grow grass; storm damage causing the tree to look unsightly and maybe even being a hazard; becoming overgrown, especially when originally planted too close to a property structure; creating problems with underground utilities; and, natural decay and death.  While no one likes to cut down a tree, as the list above attests too, it can be very necessary.  Call the tree removal Santa Barbara trusts to perform this job efficiently, safely, and affordably.  

Tree removal always starts with a free, on-site assessment of the tree (or trees) to be cut down.  During this assessment, our assessor can evaluate the removals level of complexity due to size, age, access, and location to property structures and power lines.   At the end of our visit, we will give you a verbal quote and have our office staff send you the quote in writing coupled with our proof of insurance and licensing.  Using our quote, you can then easily compare and contrast our estimate with any other tree service in Santa Barbara you may be considering.   With that said, we trust you will find our quote and level of customer service to be the best in the Santa Barbara County area.

Tree Removal Process

After you have received and agree to our tree removal estimate, on the day of the scheduled job, one of our Mission Tree Service office staff will call you that morning to confirm the appoint and pinpoint our estimated time of arrival.  We try to provide our customers with a two-hour window in which to expect us – we would like to be more precise, however, tree work can vary in length of time.  

Our tree removal process is methodical, safe, and efficient.  Regardless if we climb the tree or access it via our bucket truck, our lead cutter will begin to remove the tree starting at the canopy.  We always remove trees from the top to the bottom.  That is unless a customer simply wants a tree to be fallen so that they can perform all the clean-up work.  As we start to remove the uppermost part of the tree, we will safely lower each large limb to the ground for further cutting.  We cut all wood into 3-foot segments, either to be hauled away or stacked in a convenient location on your property.  The tree will be reduced from the top down, branch by branch, until we are left with the main trunk, generally no more than 10-12 feet in height.  At this point, we will fall the trunk so that it can be completely removed in sections (or rounds).  We will cut the trunk at a height suitable for grinding, or if you aren’t grinding the stump, we can cut it to any height you desire.  During the entire removal process, we will have a ground crew that functions to keep the area clean of tree debris and to cut limbs lowered down into 3-foot sections.  All smaller limbs and twigs will be removed to our wood chipper, stationed close by but 

    on the street.  All the large pieces of wood can be stacked for firewood, or removed via our dump truck.  

    Please call us for all your tree removal needs. We offer discounts on multiple tree removals and can usually schedule you the same week as you call.  And we are professional, insured, and licensed in the state of California.
