Tree Removal Services

Tree removal can be a dangerous thing to attempt on your own, especially given how expensive mistakes can get when you need to call in a trained arborist to fix the damage. Essentially, the tree removal process has three phases: assessment, removal, and cleanup. At Lewis Trees, we offer these services as a bundled package that offers the best service possible at a reasonable price.

It should be noted that, in some instances, approval from the county or city may be required to remove certain trees in our main services areas: Santa Cruz, and Monterey. See links below for Santa Cruz permit info:


tree-removal-300x225Removing a tree is no small job and there are special considerations that need to be taken into account when removing a dead, dying, decaying, or hazardous tree. Our certified arborists not only have the tools and expertise to do the job correctly and efficiently, but they are also insured. This offers our customers some consumer protection in the unlikely event that damages occur during the process of tree removal.

Here are some of the factors that contribute to the cost (usually tied to the difficulty and labor involved) of removing an unwanted or failing tree:

  • Season or time of year
  • Size & location of the tree
  • Soil & ground conditions
  • Required equipment
  • Proximity to power lines & buildings
  • Debris removal

Stump Grinding & Removal – Typically, when a tree is removed, a small stump will be left on the property. A trained arborist will be able to grind the stump down so that it’s flush with the ground, removing any trace of unsightly remnants so as to minimize the impact of tree removal on surrounding plants, as well as maintain the aesthetic appeal of a well-groomed yard or landscape.
