Whether you have a single tree or an entire grove, maintaining your trees is vital to the health, beauty, and safety of your neighborhood. MT Vernon Tree Company is happy to help our local community with arboreal maintenance and affordable MT Vernon tree services.
Keeping Our Neighborhoods Beautiful
Trees that are dead, decaying, dying, diseased, or damaged are unsightly. They make the neighborhood look messy, unkempt, and unattractive. Beautiful trees make the community a wonderful place to live, work, and play, but it takes work to keep the trees looking amazing.
In many cases, an ugly tree can transform with a tree trimming via our MT Vernon tree services. Trimming helps to remove any damaged limbs or branches, making the tree look neater than it otherwise would. Trimming can also be used to shape the tree, giving a more attractive design and appearance to the home or building.
Unfortunately, not all trees can be saved. Sometimes a tree has been damaged so severely that the best way to deal with it is to remove it. Dead and dying trees bring down the vibe and atmosphere of the entire area.
Other times, a tree needs to be removed or trimmed to open up the view. A tree growing into someone’s window may need to be trimmed back or even removed to allow a person to see the other beautiful things around their home.
In some cases, trees require removal to make way for new construction. When this happens, the stump needs to be ground to below the ground level to allow for the building of new structures.
For beautiful trees, call MT Vernon Tree Company today to utilize our MT Vernon tree services.

Keeping Our Neighborhoods Healthy
Our local trees help our neighborhoods stay healthy. They absorb more than 2,000 tons of pollution each year from New York City streets, and these pollutants can trigger asthma and allergies in some susceptible individuals. They also store about 1.35 million tons of carbon, helping to protect the entire planet from global climate change.
While New York City’s urban greenery can provide habitat for lots of birds, insects, and wildlife, they can also play host to many pests. Certain types of bugs, fungus, and diseases can damage trees, and some of these diseases can create problems for the properties and people around them.
Regularly pruning or trimming trees helps to keep those trees healthy, and this helps keep the surrounding community healthy and happy. When a tree is routinely trimmed, damaged limbs and branches are cut off, which helps minimize the opportunity for pests to build a home in the tree. Regular tree trimming also helps to identify early signs of disease and decay, providing a chance to solve the problem before it does severe damage to the tree or surrounding area.
Unfortunately, sometimes a tree needs to be removed to help keep the property and community healthy. Trees that are severely diseased or decaying need to be removed promptly to minimize pest problems in the area, and this requires specialized expertise and training to be done safely. Trees that are unhealthy and damaged present a particular difficulty, as they may be unstable and unsafe to climb.
Keeping Our Neighborhoods Safe
Some studies have shown a link between tree canopy and urban crime, demonstrating that strategically planted trees may help to reduce crime rates. In New York City, our trees intercept almost 900 million gallons of stormwater each year, helping to prevent flooding to our streets and communities.
Unfortunately, unmanaged trees can become unsafe. Within New York City, about two to three people die each year from falling tree branches, limbs, or trunks, and countless other people suffer from property damage and injury. Usually, this happens because the trees are not correctly maintained, hence why MT Vernon tree services can come in handy.
Tree Related Hazards
Some tree-related hazards are easy to spot. It’s easy to see if your tree’s branches are growing too close to the power lines, and you’ll want to call MT Vernon Tree Company promptly to have those branches and limbs cut back though our competitive MT Vernon tree services. Giving proper clearance to power lines helps to prevent electrocution and power outages.
If the tree’s branches or limbs grow toward a street, this can also pose a safety hazard. If drivers are unable to see around your tree’s branches, it could create unsafe conditions for drivers and pedestrians in the area. These branches and limbs will need to be trimmed regularly to keep everything safe on the road.
If a tree continually and steadily grows toward a power line or roadway, that tree may need to be removed. Most of the time, as long as the tree is still relatively young (under 20-50 years old, depending on the tree), it can be trained and pruned away from dangerous areas, but some trees may require removal to keep them from being an ongoing problem.
Falling Branches or Limbs
Regular tree trimming can also help to reduce the risk of falling branches or limbs. Most branches that fall onto people are decayed, rotting, infested, or otherwise damaged. These branches are often hollowed out throughout, which makes them extremely weak and easy to break.
When your trees are trimmed regularly, you’re able to spot weak or damaged branches and limbs and remove them carefully and safely in a controlled setting. This and our MT Vernon tree services can make your trees and your neighborhood much safer.
If a tree is badly decayed, that tree may require removal. A good wind or a bad day could break a branch or topple the trunk of a tree that’s got core damage, and this could injure someone or do serious property damage.
Preventing Storm Damage
In a storm, high winds can cause damage to area trees. This damage can be unsafe to people who are outside, even after the storm has passed. Storms can damage trees and cause hidden damage, and they can knock branches and limbs off, especially when the tree is already partially damaged.
Having your tree trimmed regularly allows our team at Mt Vernon Tree Company to inspect your tree and remove any unstable, unsteady, or potentially dangerous parts before a storm hits to knock them loose.

Getting Our Neighborhoods Back to Normal
When a storm does hit, it’s crucial that we work quickly to get our neighborhoods back to normal. Loosened or unsteady limbs and branches can come loose and fall for several days after a big storm, and branches that are damaged by wind may be more susceptible to damage during the next storm.
If Branches or Limbs are Hanging or have Fallen Off
Contact MT Vernon Tree Company immediately anytime you seek emergency MT Vernon tree services. We have technicians available twenty-four hours a day and seven days a week in the event of an emergency.
When a storm blows branches off the tree, they don’t usually land neatly and safely on the ground. They may be balanced on a fence or partially attached to the tree, and this creates a perilous situation where the slightest shift in the weight of the branch can cause it to fall and do additional damage.
We strongly suggest that you do NOT try to remove a hanging or fallen branch by yourself, instead stay safe and take advantage of our affordable MT Vernon tree services. When branches are precariously balanced, attempting to remove them can cause injury to the person doing the work, as it may shift and pin you or your helper.
Removing broken and fallen branches should be done with correct tools, equipment, training, skills, and experience, and our technicians can help even if it’s outside regular business hours. Please stay safe! Ask us for help.
If Your Tree has Visible Damage
Contact MT Vernon Tree Company quickly. Visible damage may need to be repaired, and additional trimming or removal of part of the tree may be necessary to prevent further damage. This includes small broken limbs and branches as well as damage to the bark.
In some Mt Vernon neighborhoods, pests like carpenter ants will take advantage of a break in the tree’s bark and use it as an invitation to set up camp. Over time, these colonies can destroy a tree, eating it from the inside out and hollowing out the tree. While trees can often heal minor damage on their own, it’s still a good idea to have a tree professional take a look after a storm.
Certain diseases and fungi may also use a tree’s damage as a way to get inside the organism. If your tree has any visible damage, it’s important to have it examined and inspected by a tree professional through our expert MT Vernon tree services.
If Your Tree Looks Fine
It may be fine, or it may be harboring hidden damage. After a strong storm, your tree may need a trim for aesthetic reasons, especially if there are a few minor twigs snapped loose and it looks messy or unkempt. Even if your tree looks okay, it could be harboring damage that you can’t see from the ground.
If a tree is damaged during one storm, it’s more vulnerable to damage in future storms. In addition to a little after-storm “haircut,” it’s a good idea to have a professional look things over to make sure that nothing is out of place or hazardous in the future.
