FAQs About Our Staunton Tree Service

Learn more about our services with the answers to these commonly posed customer questions below.

When should I get a tree removed?

In Staunton, VA, tree removal should occur in two major cases. First, if the tree poses a threat to your safety or the integrity of nearby buildings or utility lines. Second, if the tree is a nuisance or in the way of a renovation project. You may also wish to remove trees that are invasive species in Virginia, like tree-of-heaven, that are threats to the native ecosystem.

If you don’t know whether or not your tree requires removal, give the experts in Staunton tree service a call. At Potter’s Tree Service & Landscaping, we know tree removal inside and out, and most importantly, we can perform the job safely. Don’t hesitate to call us if you have any questions or concerns. We offer emergency services in case you need urgent tree removal, and will respond quickly to your queries.

Do I need tree trimming or tree pruning?

This is a perfect opportunity to call on the team at Potter’s Tree Service & Landscaping to assess the trees and other plants on your property. If you see trees with dead branches, developing diseases, or signs of insect infestations, you likely need tree pruning to improve the health of your tree. If you see that your tree is not growing as nicely as it should, with branches at the bottom being crowded out by the branches above, then tree trimming may suit your needs. Ultimately, only a Staunton tree service professional can properly diagnose your trees and guide you toward the appropriate solution.

How do I remove a stump?

A stump can be removed using a number of methods, but the only way to get it completely out of your yard is to request full stump removal. This involves removing both the stump – the leftover trunk sticking out of the ground – and the roots attached to it.

You should always contact a professional tree service company in Staunton, VA to perform a stump removal. This is not something you can do effectively on your own and requires special tools, especially a complete stump removal that includes the roots of the former tree. Luckily, the team at Potter’s Tree Service & Landscaping usually consults with you to determine how to best remove a stump when we remove your tree in the first place.

What are the benefits of stump grinding?

Stump grinding is a way of removing the aboveground stump down to a few inches below the surface. This process still leaves the roots behind, but for most purposes, this is fine. Stump grinding is faster than stump removal, and it also does less damage to your yard in the process, since it does not involve an excavator or the removal of the roots. It is relatively eco friendly, especially because you are able to recycle the wood chips or mulch that come out of the stump that has been ground. Those wood chips can be used to plug the hole left by the ground stump, or they can encourage the growth of new plants. Stump grinding also does not cost as much because it is an easier Staunton tree service to perform.

Why should I get emergency tree service?

Staunton emergency tree service is available 24/7 to Potter’s Tree Service & Landscaping customers because it is essential. Storm damage can make your yard and home unsafe, especially if a tree falls or leans too close to your property. Trees too close to utility lines can also be a major risk, especially if left to grow unchecked. We will help you make your yard a safe place again with emergency tree removal, stump removal, tree cabling, and more services designed specifically to mitigate damage to your property and your person.
