For jobs that involve larger trees, or difficult to reach branches, an aerial lift may be the only option available.

Aerial lift tree services include anything that must be done an elevated platform, which is most often a mechanical arm with a “bucket” at the top of it, similar to what you may see a PG&E worker use when doing work on a telephone line.

While aerial lift tree services provide access to difficult to reach spots and can be the only option for some jobs, it does come with certain dangers. Because this is the case (see this PDF from Occupational Safety and Health Administration), it is suggested that you only use a highly trained professional or certified arborist when using an aerial lift for tree removal or maintenance.

These are some of the services we provide using an aerial lift:

  • Tree removal
  • Tree trimming
  • Pruning
  • Branch removal
  • Hedge shaping
  • Storm damage removal

As you can see, many of the standard services that are available can also be done using an aerial lift. One of the advantages of using this method is that it allows the arborist or tree trimmer to more easily access a space that may be tough to address, while still being able to use the proper tools to do the job.

An aerial lift is also a great way to significantly reduce the time spent on a particular job–in some cases it may be the only option. All of our services are performed by a certified tree care expert, from assessment to removal to cleanup, and insurance is included in the price!
