Tree removal can be dangerous work that should be done by professional arborists from your local tree service. Professional arborists have the tree equipment, experience, and skill necessary to safely remove trees from your landscape. A tree service will usually grind tree branches into woodchips that can be reused to benefit other landscape trees.

After a tree removal is done it’s usually a good idea to grind the tree stump. Tree stumps are unsightly, hard to mow around, and can be a tripping hazard if they are left in the landscape. Ants, termites, bees, and even animals have been found nesting in decaying tree stumps. Most of the woodchips that are created from stump grinding can be reused somewhere else in the landscape to benefit other landscape trees. Stump grinding is usually easier than digging out the tree stump and a tree stump and root ball can be a lot harder to dispose of. After stump grinding is done and the woodchips are removed soil and grass seed, or sod, can be put down to improve the appearance of your landscape.

HOW TO FIND & HIRE AN ARBORIST OR TREE SERVICE IN CONNECTICUT

Trees provide a multitude of benefits to our environment and wood products are a part of our everyday lives. For most Connecticut homeowners their main interaction with trees is with the trees in their own landscape. Trees are the most important component of a home landscape and well-maintained trees can add considerable value to a home. When trees become sick, or tree removal is needed, most people seek the help of a tree service or arborist.

Tree services and arborists are individuals that specialize in the care of trees. Tree services and arborists can help Connecticut home and business owners with a variety of tree care services, such as:
  • Tree pruning
  • Tree removal
  • Tree spraying
  • Tree fertilization
  • Stump removal
  • Removing fallen trees
  • Cabling and bracing trees
  • Insect and disease control
  • Pruning or removing storm-damaged trees


Any individual in Connecticut that practices arboriculture for hire must be licensed. Arborist licensing is administered by the Department of Environmental Protection.

Home and business owners have many options available to find a tree service or arborist such as the phone book, internet, newspaper ads, mailing inserts, or flyers. One often overlooked method to find a tree service or arborist is to ask a friend or relative to refer a tree service or arborist that they have used in the past.

When you meet with an arborist to look at your trees it is okay to ask a lot of questions. Meeting with an arborist serves two purposes. First, you are seeking help, advice, and technical knowledge on taking care of your trees. Secondly, and just as important, you are interviewing the arborist to make sure you will feel comfortable having the tree service or arborist work on your trees. You may want to have some questions written down before your meeting.

During the course of your initial meeting ask if the arborist is an ISA Certified Arborist. Also, find out if the tree service or arborist is a member of any professional tree care organization such as the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA), the Tree Care Industry Association, The American Society of Consulting Arborists, or the Connecticut Tree Protective Association. Being an ISA Certified Arborist and memberships in tree care organizations doesn’t guarantee quality work, but it does display a certain level of commitment to the science of tree care, ongoing education, and the proper care of trees.

You may want to ask for a list of references. Looking at past work performed by the tree service or arborist will give you an idea of what the arborist has in mind for your trees.

Make sure the tree service or arborist has workman’s compensation and general liability insurance. You have the right to request a copy of their certificate of insurance.

Tree care proposals should be in writing and should clearly explain the scope of the work to be completed. For instance, does the tree removal price include brush removal, wood removal, stump grinding?

When you hire an arborist you are responsible to confirm that the arborist is properly licensed and insured. Ask for a copy of their insurance certificate and arborist license. You can verify that an arborist is licensed in Connecticut by contacting the Connecticut Pesticide Management program at 860-424-3369.
