Did You Know that Tree Removal is an Essential Service?

On March 19th, 2020 the governor of California, Gavin Newsom issued an order to shelter in place to combat the spread of COVID-19. To minimize exposure to the virus, the order states that only ‘essential businesses’ may continue operations during this period. Green Leaf Zone is considered an essential business because our work directly contributes to the safety of your property and the safety of the public.

In addition to tree removal services, we can also provide the following essential services during this time:

Recently, the state has moved to phase 2 of our pandemic response. On May 8th, restrictions were lifted for lower-risk workplaces such as book stores, clothing stores, florists and sporting goods stores. These businesses can reopen at the discretion of their individual owners, provided that they make modifications to accommodate social distancing.

If you have found it difficult to care for your property due to business closures or quarantine orders, we urge you to contact our team for a free property inspection. Our skilled professionals will ensure that your property abides by all fire code regulations and we can provide a free estimate for any stump removal or tree removal services that you may require.

The health and safety of your family and our team members is our highest priority. We will work with you throughout the process to ensure that we are following social distancing guidelines. If you’d prefer to receive a no-contact estimate, we would be happy to accommodate you.

Do I Really Need Tree Removal Services?

There are a variety of reasons that you might need to remove a tree from your residential or business property. You may be clearing the way for better landscaping, or you may be hoping to replace an unhealthy tree with a thriving counterpart. If your tree began growing in close proximity to your house, it can create a significant threat to the structural integrity of the building. After years of growth, the roots will begin to stretch out in order to occupy more of the available space, which could jeopardize your plumbing and foundation. During periods of storms or high winds, these trees could topple on your home. Complete tree removal is often the best option in these circumstances. High-quality tree service providers aren’t just looking at the parts of the tree that are visible above ground. To fully remove the tree and prevent potential regrowth, you’ll also need to remove the trunk and extract the root system.

In some cases, these roots have grown dangerously close to irrigation lines, septic systems, or other wiring. Not only is it dangerous to attempt root removal without the proper training, but you could also damage other structures. Large roots and trunks are nearly impossible to remove without specialized, heavy machinery. These machines can be rented, but without a fully trained operator, they remain dangerous. After excavating the root system and grinding away the stump, we shift our focus to clearing away debris. Bark, leaves, branches, and any other plants that were damaged when felling the tree will need to be removed in order to return your land to its previous condition.

At Green Leaf Zone, we make the debris removal process as simple as possible. Before we make a single cut to your tree, we’ll discuss your plans for removing the debris. We have a ‘no-mess, no-stress’ approach to our Los Angeles tree removal services. We want to make sure that you can get back to your life as quickly as possible and our expert team members make it a point not to disrupt your routine. We advise homeowners to avoid the risk of injury by hiring a professional tree removal service. At Green Leaf Zone, we are equipped with state-of-the-art machinery to ensure the job gets done, according to the highest possible standards. We also work with our customers to save money by bundling services whenever possible. Typically, homeowners will choose to combine tree removal services with stump grinding, root removal, and occasionally even replanting.

Our Services & Specialties

We offer a variety of tree services in Ventura County and the surrounding areas. We’ve listed some of our specialties below:

  • Tree Trimming & Pruning
  • Stump Grinding
  • Brush Clearing

Trees are natural works of art, however, sometimes they need the help of professionals to make sure they grow to be as healthy and beautiful as possible. This is especially true of trees that are diseased, decaying or growing in such a manner where they pose a potential risk to human life or surrounding property. Inaction can potentially leave you and your loved ones in danger, whilst simultaneously exposing your property and possessions to serious damage.

Most professional arborists recommend tree trimming every three years, even if you can’t see specific loose-hanging branches. This preventative action will decrease your long-term maintenance costs. According to the LA Controller Office, “a tree that is trimmed or inspected annually requires less time and effort than a tree that is trimmed once every decade”. Prolonged periods of deferred maintenance increase the likelihood of tree failure or other conditions that require emergency tree services (which is often more expensive).

Tree trimming and pruning is often carried out at great heights and should not be attempted by just anyone. At Green Leaf Zone, we are certified, professional contractors. We are uniquely qualified to perform tree removal services because our staff completes difficulty safety training while complying with all licensing requirements. Moreover, we carry comprehensive insurance to cover any accidents.

If left to their own devices, tree stumps can cause an array of problems. Firstly, there is the fact that tree stumps can be an eye-sore in your well-kept grounds, and present potential tripping hazards for people of all ages.

Neglected tree stumps can cause bad smells to emanate from odorous root rot. Stumps can also attract insects such as termites as the stump’s roots continue to grow. Finally, particularly large tree stumps can obstruct waterways and prevent proper drainage.

Grinding a tree stump is not something a homeowner should attempt alone. In fact, many landscaping services do not have the equipment and expertise necessary for safe and efficient stump removal. Our industrial grade wood chipper is equipped to handle the tough, thick wood of your tree stump. Smaller wood chippers have been known to break or jam when used for large stumps.

Wildfires are always a concern in Southern California, particularly during the warmer summer months. One of the requirements from local fire departments is to make sure that your property or business is free from brush so that fires don’t have vegetation with which to continue their rapid spread.

Have you received a fire department non-compliance notice? If so, you’ll need to clear your brush quickly in order to avoid a large fine in Ventura County. Here at Green Leaf Zone our expert team gets to work fast, clearing large swathes of brush quickly and efficiently. We can often clear a property of brush within one day. We use the latest technology which minimizes the impact on the soil, trees and any wildlife.

Giving Back to the Community with Los Angeles Tree Removal

No use for your tree once it has been removed? We can help! At Green Leaf Zone, we love to give back to the community. One of the ways that we can do this is by grinding your tree into wood chips. We frequently give away these wood chips for free. They are available on a first-come, first-serve basis to local residents and businesses in the areas where we are currently working. With just one call to Green Leaf Zone, you can turn your unloved and unsightly trees into valuable resources for your community.

Frequently Asked Questions

Interested in our services? These frequently asked questions will help you understand exactly what to expect during our tree removal process.

For homeowners and private landowners residing in the Greater Los Angeles area, there are no permit requirements to remove a tree of your own choice. However, if you’ve been issued a notice by the Los Angeles Fire Department, you may have unique compliance requirements. Lastly, it is unlawful for anyone other than the Department of Parks and Recreation to touch trees or shrubs that reside on public land.

The costs for tree removal will obviously vary from tree to tree. Branch patterns, the height of the tree, and girth of the trunk are all important considerations for contractors removing trees. As a general guide, you can expect to pay between $600 to $1000 for complete tree removal, depending on the complexity of the job. Removing the stump could also present an additional expense.

Once again, this will vary from tree to tree. We can remove small trees in a matter of hours, however, the largest of trees can take up to 5 working days to be completely removed. What you decide to do with your stump is also a factor. If you are happy to leave the tree stump as it is for the time being, then the job will be completed faster than if you instruct us to carry out either stump grinding or removal services.

Yes. There are many things you can do to ensure that your tree removal is a smooth process. Firstly, make sure there is somewhere for us to park. In order to perform our work, we'll need to bring heavy machinery. We will also need space to transfer the equipment from our vehicles to the job site. Secondly, clear your property of any personal belongings. This could include outdoor furniture or any potted plants to make sure that the crew has enough space to work around the base of the tree and drop branches down during the works. Finally, try to keep your yard clear of animal feces which could contaminate the rope network and rigging gear which is based at the ground level.
