Emergency Tree Service

The worst damage to trees in Baton Rouge is usually a result of hurricanes or tropical systems.

If the damage is already done, we will respond as quickly as possible to your emergency and remove the threat while minimizing collateral damage.

Our own clients and various insurance companies have learned repeatedly that we do not attempt to capitalize from your storm damage emergencies, but instead apply a reasonable emergency response surcharge.

Stumps are “removed” by grinding the stump into a pile of dirt and wood chips, usually to a depth of 6-8 inches under the existing land grade. Stump pricing varies with stump size, number of stumps and ease of access to stump.

The dirt/woodchip combination can be used as fill dirt or weed control in wooded or natural areas, and most of our clients find a use for it somewhere on their property. Stump grindings are not usually recommended for use around pH sensitive plants.  If there is no suitable use for them on your property, we recommend using a landscape or lawn company to haul away the excess debris.


Trees, dead or living, that pose a threat to people or property are usually prime candidates for removal.

But when there is no clear and present danger, the decision to remove a tree can be quite complicated.

Often our clients find that a tree that once looked nice living in close proximity to their house becomes overbearing as it grows and ages. Certain trees have very aggressive root systems that can seek out cracks in hardscapes or foundations and cause damage there. In some cases, animals or insects burrowing into the supporting trunk of a tree may point toward structural weaknesses. Sometimes, achieving a desired aesthetic (more light, better spacing, etc.) requires the removal of perfectly healthy trees.

Whatever the case, the decision to remove a healthy tree can be a tough one. Count on our arborists to help you understand the options, and to help you make the most informed decision for your situation.

Baton Rouge Tree Service


Although forest trees seem to grow quite well with only nature’s pruning, the conditions for the health and growth of trees in a forest are typically far superior than those in our urban or suburban backyards. We are also more concerned for our own safety and sometimes for the appearance of our trees in our backyards.

Whatever the reason for pruning a tree, the practice should be done with an understanding of how the tree responds to each cut. Improper pruning can cause damage that will last for the duration of the tree’s existence. Poor pruning can even hasten the decline or death or our trees.


When we climb your trees to perform pruning tasks, we never use climbing spurs that cut into the tree. Our expert climbers access tree canopies by rope and only contact the tree with shoe soles and hands.
