Tree Service Blog

Today is Friday and with the beautiful sunshine and warmer temperatures ahead all the plants, animals and humans are in full swing. We are enjoying the sunshine and warmer temperatures. With thoughts of an enjoyable summer, the trees are forming their buds and the sap/picnic beetles are out of hibernation; and hungry...oh wait...insert screeching sound here...the sap beetles are looking to feed on your oak trees. Don't give them the opportunity! Stop the pruning of all oak trees for the remainder of the summer. Remember, if you ever need help keeping your oak trees happy and healthy our arborist are no more than a phone call away!


It is best to have your trees evaluated prior to a storm coming. Many people procrastinate having a risk assessment/health evaluation of their trees prior to a storm or strong winds. The next thing you know, your tree has fallen on your house. How horrible. This could have been prevented. Also, many people think they can handle the storm clean up themselves. However, this is work for a professional arborist. There are many risks involved in tree care/removal. Most chain saw work on  trees or large limbs requires the experience of a trained professional to prevent injuries. Many times wood under tension (one/both ends of a fallen tree or branch pinned under other branches or debris) can have different types of binds at different places. By releasing that tension with chainsaw cuts, it is extremely dangerous; this can seriously or possibly fatally harm the chain saw operator if they are not a professional arborist. 

A professional arborist can determine the best way to accomplish the task at hand, especially prior to a storm. They have experience and proper equipment to do the job right. Whether it is after the tree has fallen, or as a preventative measure, our professional arborists have the skill set to accomplish the task and may prevent an injury or even save a life. Leave the tree work to our professional arborists. Please call our office if you have any tree concerns.

Tree work is hard work, requires physical labor and is a physically demanding profession. Our tree crew performs physical tasks throughout every workday and maintains a safe work environment.

Our crew meets these basic physical requirements:

  • Able and willing to work long hours
  • Ability to work in various weather conditions
  • Ability to lift relatively heavy loads
  • Physical mobility for work operations
  • Stamina to perform complete day’s labor
  • Ability to operate equipment, work safely, and be exposed to the weather without being impaired

Our tree crew is dedicated to serving our customers and strives for excellence. If you are interested in more information, please contact our office.

Our Arborists help to protect the public by removing hazardous limbs and trees when necessary. We offer 24 emergency storm service available when our customers need us the most. 

It doesn't matter if the job is an emergency tree removal or a typical tree removal, tree pruning or stump grinding; safety always comes first! Our arborists as a team ensure a safe work environment for all because of our safety standards we have set in place. Our arborists go through safety training. Safety is an important aspect of their daily job. We are always continuing to strive for the safest and  most efficient techniques our arborist can use to complete a given job. Safety is by far the most important portion of this job and is definitely the corner-stone of this profession.

Our tree crew or  tree care professionals - or even arborists - are  trained to perform specific practices that relate to safe andf efficient tree care. Our Arborists typically work on a tree crew made up of 2-4 arborists/arborist trainees.Some of our arborists climb the trees, but some do not. There are several tree care maintenance tasks that need to be taken care of at ground level.

The tree care industry requires skill and hard work.  Some tree care activities our arborists might provide are:

  • Plant health care
  • Pest Control
  • Repairing storm damage
  • Pruning
  • Tree protection during construction
  • Installing lightning protection or support systems
  • Removing hazardous trees
  • Root zone soil management

what people say

  • Jared and his Team at Get-R-Cut did an excellent job removing two trees in our back yard and trimming 4 large oaks we had in our front yard. I have worked with Jared on other projects in the past and I will continue to call on Jared for future projects.

  • JB does my snow plowing for my auto repair shop also has done some landscape work as well... great job. I would refer them to anyone.
    Jim Flannery Jr.

  • I had Get-R-Cut come to my house to do some pruning on Oak trees in my backyard. We had some areas that we had different kinds of plants that were directly under the trees to be pruned that we did not want damaged. Jared and Chris did a great job in avoiding any damage to those areas. Jared did a great job in removing a lot of dead branches and pruning up the trees to providing an idea shape to them. Chris, Jared's helper, did a tremendous job managing things on the ground and constantly removing brush and cutting up branches to move to their chipper.
    The clean up process was very well done. I would highly recommend them to others if they need trees pruned or removed. I will be having them return to remove 3 very large trees from our front yard in the near future to get rid of potential problems with them.
