Quick, Safe & Affordable
Tree removal, particularly in tight spaces or near structures (such as your home) or cutting down trees near power lines, is definitely not a DIY job. It requires specialized equipment, including safety equipment, and extensive skills and training to do it efficiently, properly, and safely.
American Climbers has state-of-the-art equipment designed specifically for tree removal, including one of the first grapple saws in the USA. Cranes, bucket trucks, and huge chippers let us handle even the largest trees with ease while keeping our crews and customers safe.

TREE Removal FAQs & Tips
In most cases, you do not need a permit to cut down a tree on your property. However, it is important that you make sure the tree actually belongs to you before you have it cut. The state’s illegal tree cutting law dictates that damaging or cutting down another person’s tree can make you liable for an amount that is three times the value of the tree!
Many things go into tree removal and there are a lot of moving parts. We need to see the tree to determine, amongst other things, the tree’s:
- Proximity to power lines and utilities, buildings, roads, etc.
- Surrounding landscape
Once we can see the tree for ourselves, we can determine what kind of equipment is needed, which crew can most efficiently do the job, and more.
In most cases, yes, we can remove multiple trees as part of the same job. It depends on how many trees need to be cut down, where they are on your property, the weather that day, the crew availability, and other factors. Removing several trees at once can be preferable as it takes time to set up the equipment, schedule the crews, etc.

If an ash tree was infected by Emerald Ash Borer (EAB), the tree has become dry, brittle, and unsafe for a climber to ascend. Almost all dead ash trees in our area have succumbed to EAB, so we have a specific and detailed process to remove ash trees to ensure that everyone and everything around the tree remains safe.
A grapple saw is a state-of-the-art saw, often attached to a crane or boom arm, that allows us to remove trees even more quickly, efficiently, and safely. It is remotely controlled and cuts, grabs, and removes sections of a tree during a removal.
We always do our best to protect your landscape during any type of tree work. For example, we place special mats on the ground to distribute the weight of our heavy equipment.
Our estimator will discuss potential issues with you during the initial site visit so you understand what might happen.

No, we often do work when people are not home. We will often mark the trees beforehand so it is clear what work should be done. You’ll come home to one fewer tree – and a clean area!
In most cases, your homeowner's insurance will cover tree removal if your tree has fallen on a covered structure on your property. Removing a tree for other reasons will generally not be covered by insurance. We recommend that you contact your insurance company directly if you have questions about coverage.
